Suzanne and I have been best friends for 34 years. We met when we were newlyweds and stayed friends through the early years of marriage, having and raising children, empty nests and now grandchildren. We don’t live in the same state anymore but it doesn’t stop us from being best friends!
Through the years, I’ve always had a planner while Suzanne wasn’t really interested. She’s dabbled with calendars but the closest she’s come to a planner, as far as I know, was the Erin Condren Planner.
But now she needs a planner. She’s been looking on-line at ALL the options and asking me questions and she finally took the plunge and bought a planner – if you could call it that. It was inexpensive and she got what she paid for. It wasn’t really a planner and it wasn’t what she wanted.
Suzanne is going through a lot of tough stuff right now so she decided to stick with what she’s using – at least for now. But being the planner nerd that I am, I couldn’t let that happen. Using my stash, I put together a planner for her. It’s not perfect but it will do the job and give her an opportunity to try some things out and figure out exactly what she wants. Sometimes you need to try before you buy!
In case you’re interested, here’s what I came up with:
My best friend’s planner is on its way! I hope it works better for her than that other planner she bought and that when she uses it, she remembers how special she is to me! Happy planning, my friend.
