When Did I Become Information Central?
It isn’t just my kids and husband that “need” me to figure out where things are, what appointments they have, etc., it is other family members too.
I am the girl with the answers, apparently. Extended family members come to me when they want to remember dates for events, phone numbers, and just about anything else they can think of. Why me? It isn’t like I have an empty plate just waiting to be filled. In a way it is flattering, in another way it stresses me out.
I think the next time they come to me for these types of answers, I am going to suggest that they:
- Take a minute to see if they can find the information without my help
- Google – you can find just about anything with Google!
- Let their spouse and kids help them remember dates and events
- Start an online calendar of their own. After all, that is how I keep track of things!
Does everyone come to you when they need something, can’t find something, or can’t remember something? I would love to hear your thoughts on this subject! Let’s talk!
