Days of the week and holidays

Photobucket Man, I'll tell you what, I got several chapters written when I lost track of the days, dates, and weeks. My story starts in November and it has to end before Thanksgiving. Then there's the problem of school weeks and work hours, weekends and Driver's Ed. It's enough to drive one to drink. Plus I have an added problem, one which I'm not about to address, but it's there if I did. My story takes place in November 2008. In my story, there is no Presidential election, why? because the whole dang world has gone to heck in a hand basket and when I started the book, things were normal. Oh well. I'm not sure I ever actually mention what year the story takes place.

This afternoon I realized, I needed to take a closer look at the dateline. As predicted, I goofed it up. I had one of my characters in school on Saturday. So now I'm in the process of combining scenes, oh joy. And now, instead of two days to prepare for a funeral, there's only one. these are little things, but annoying. I've also decided to remove a scene I no longer need. So I'm not making headway at the moment, but I am making progress.

Does anyone else have these pesky little problems?
