I don't know about you, but I depend on Calendars to keep me going. Or at least to tell me where I need to be going.

Chintz cup Usually I get a wonderful calendar for my office. Something nice and BIG, with BIG squares I can write in. And the subject matter will be something very appealing. Last year it was teapots and tea parties. I've had cat calendars, Susan Branch calendars, even Harry Potter calendars. Nice Big Calendars.

Fishing Last Christmas, I got a small Harry Potter calendar. I knew it wasn't going to work. The date squares are dinky at best. (Nice pictures, though.) Unfortunately, I decided to wait until New Year's before I went out to look for a calendar. Of course, by then, only the dregs were left--stuff I couldn't bear the thought of looking at for the next twelve months. Ugly, ugly stuff. Like sports. Killing animals or fish.

I thought I'd try calendaring on AOL. But I keep forgetting to look there. I have a day planner, but I keep misplacing it.

Nope, I need a calendar on the wall. WITH BIG SQUARES.

Calendar They're starting to put out the calendars in places like Barnes & Noble and the craft stores (think Michaels). Should I pay full shot and guarantee that I get a calendar with big squares (and hopefully PRETTY), or wait and be disappointed once again.

Uh, I think this one is a no-brainer.
