Last year, I happily ordered a 2021 planner (knowing that the odds were good it would see little use after a month or two, given my history). But I love the "idea" of a planner and acquiring one that suits my planning desires and is cute appeals to me every year.
My working theory is that if the aesthetic of the planner is "pleasing" I might actually use it (friends, this theory has yet to pan out past three months. Usually, I pick it up again several months later; only to find it at the end of the year - mostly unused).
The "new" 2021 planner I had ordered was, indeed "new", but was a 2020 version. *sigh*
You can probably guess where this going...
A few days ago, I happily ordered a new (eventually to be ignored) planner. Guess what arrived yesterday?
A very cute, 2021 planner. *smacks head to desk*
Honestly, how is this EVEN possible? I open the website, I type the words "2022 5 x 8 planner," skim the results, looking for something that appeals, find one and click "buy".
WHY on earth are 2021 planners EVEN showing up in the results??
Can I blame this brain fog on COVID? Even though we haven't had it (thank God; knock wood)? I think I can and will.
Because what else could account for me doing this TWO years in a row?
