When I was several weeks into our Project 365, I realized I wouldn’t be able to keep track of what day was what number of the year. January was easy – January 1st was Project 365 Day 1. But, um, going into February and March was going to require actual adding and calculations.
It’s not that I’m afraid of adding or subtracting (heck, I’m going on my 5th time teaching Algebra this year), but I often blog LATE at night and that is a time notorious for math mistakes.
Cleaning and sorting and laundry/dishes I can do with no problem at midnight (or beyond). Math? Not so much. Tim doesn’t have the same trouble keeping track of the calendar days. Something to do with his programmer mind, I think (or maybe he just looks at my post from the day before and adds 1).
Needless to say, I KNEW there had to be a calendar of some sort online that I could use to keep track of our Project 365. I found one that needed some modification (black and white? Seriously? We need some color!)

This has been a tremendous help in keeping track of my blogging days. I can find the month, the day, and then know exactly what numbered day of the year it is. A simple thing, but crucial as I try to stay in sync with the days.
My phone organizes pictures according to day (another huge help), but downloading them to my computer (from phone or digital camera) requires a little more labeling and sorting. It’s very satisfying work, and I’m amazed and pleased that in 2015 we have already blogged more than we did in all of 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. I’m thankful for my college kids who
bugged inspired and encouraged us to blog more faithfully this year.
