Get busy with it
Each year at about this time, I shop for an important household item: the kitchen calendar. This is no small task. Much like Goldilocks and her porridge, I seek to find a calendar that is just right.

We hang our calendar in a prominent location in the kitchen because it is an important piece of property.††It is the singular item within our home that tells us where to go and what to do. A simple glance lets us know if we are headed to the orthodontist or a soccer game, or maybe both.

At our house, if it ainít on the calendar, it ainít gonna happen. We are busy. Very busy. Extremely so. You could say we are caught up in and consumed with the business of busyness. It is what defines us Ė as people, as a society even.
