I Love My Calendar, Girl.

In my eyes, Google can really do no wrong.

Gmail (and gmail chat) provide me with endless amusement and easy communication with friends.

Google Earth is available for handy stalking.

Google Documents allows me to indulge my incessant need to make a spreadsheet for EVERYTHING and always have it available (without having to email it back and forth to myself)
Google Image provides and endless supply of photos to Photoshop/MS Paint for hours of mirth.

And lastly, Google calendar means never having to ask your significant other “Hey are we doing anything next Saturday/On the 15th/this Monday at 5*?

Oh yes, a few months ago I got into the Google calendar craze and created a Google calendar for Adam and I. Since we both have gmail accounts it was a snap and we now have a dynamic calendar easily accessible from our respective email accounts that we can each update as things come up. Between our separate schedules of hockey, school, friends, family, going out and errands – it just makes it a lot easier when he or I get an invitation or are trying to plan a night out with friends or if I want to go out with the girls but forget what night his brother is coming to visit or if he wants to go play hockey on Friday night but we may have already invited people over for dinner that night or if I can't go to a Friends Trivia Party because we have hockey tickets (sob!). What have you. Just pop open the calendar and see!

As long as you consult the calendar, and are good about updating it. You will never be double booked. (Sorry Caity - in my defense the Monarchs game was not on the calendar when I RSVPd to your party! But that mistake will not be made again)

Trust the Google calendar.

Use the Google calendar.

LOVE the Google calendar.

E - haha I am the tech non-savvy person in our house. maybe that means there is hope for A someday. :-)

C - Thanks! It's just temporary until I am able to come up with something better. Designing a header in MS Paint = not the greatest :-P
