Children carry security blankets (a/k/a blankies). My adult version of the "blankie" is my Daytimer (a/k/a old school calendar). I have been teased incessantly over the last 15 years for clinging to my Daytimer. However, I have worked in a field fueled by deadlines for over 22 years and have NEVER missed a court, client or other deadline. I also keep personal dates in it - birthdays, anniversaries, vacations, classes. The only drawback is that if I accidently leave it at home or at work, I have to go back and get it - not for fear of missing a deadline, but for psychological reasons :-)
So here it is at the office in "day mode" - the gray spiral behind it is the 2014 calendar insert.
And here it is closed and ready to go home.
And when my Daytimer and I got home, we were greeted by a lovely surprise - a beautiful postcard of a butterfly from Nadine, our own Tiny Wolf!
Santa wanted to read the note, so here it is on his table :-)
