I am a calendar person. I have them all over in my house. It's like when I travel I want a map to look at, even if I know the trip by heart...I like to see where I am at.
That is how I am with my missionary countdowns I have on my fridge. Yes, My fridge looks like OLD lady fridge...pictures drawings you name it and TONS of magnets. I like to see just how much time until my kids get home.
Kira's will be filled up BEFORE she gets home because she extended her mission by a month (No, she did not ask if it was ok). I am a little freaked out as to how I am going to keep count for that added time.Derek's was on the fridge before he left...I bet he would be surprised to see how full it is already getting!
I also got a bit smarter, I use the same color of hearts and then on transfers or months out, I use a different color.
I love it...I feel so in control of something I have absolutely no control of.
