Wow! I feel like I’m dusting the cobwebs off of my blog today!
I know you all “feel my pain,” so to speak. Life is busy, hectic, and wonderful all at the same time!
As a full time mother, wife, high school teacher, and volleyball coach, it seems as though I daily find myself relying heavily upon a steady stream of coffee (with peppermint mocha creamer) in order to make it through the daily grind.
So, other than my coffee addiction, how do I stay on top of the craziness that is my life?
GOOGLE, of course!
It’s not just a search engine!
The following Google apps are FREE an are essential in my life!
- My husband has an Android phone, I have an iPhone, and as a teacher I’m really not allowed to text during school hours. It would be easier if my husband jumped on the iOS bandwagon, which would allow me to message him via iMessage while at work. However, he simply refuses. Since he and I both have easy access to email, we are able to communicate with each other throughout the day 🙂
- Google Calendar
- As you know, I have an extremely busy and hectic schedule. So does the rest of my family. I created a Google Calendar and shared the calendar with my husband and my mom. Through this simple process, I am able to share my schedule with my family and keep everyone updated!
- Google Drive
- The collaboration available through Google Drive is AMAZING! I created a template (Grocery List), made a copy, renamed the document with this week’s date, shared it with my husband, and he and I were able to add to our list even when we aren’t in the same room!
Is life still crazy? Yes. Do I desperately need a day to sit at home in my sweatpants, drink my cup of coffee, and watch the TODAY show? Oh yes.
Google apps help me manage my extremely crazy and hectic life! Give Google a try!
