Attempt two on the WO2P, differently

So yeah, yesterday's pictures of my WO2P mock up were a flop.  I could see them in person but as an image they were a failure.

This morning I found Ray's Template for printing on Filofax personal paper.  It's a template with placeholder text so you can add whatever you need.  I replaced the text with a very simple week on two page template.

I still can't print on both sides and I don't even know what is up with that but I did get something I could test. If it works out for me I'm sure I can have it printed.

For this try I split the week as follows;  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and Thursday on the left and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on the right.   This gives me more room for the week end and the day before. A lot tends to get dumped on Friday so this might help but if it doesn't work I'll try it the original way with Monday through Friday on the left facing page.

I'm a little confused as to why my photos are suddenly less clear, maybe it's iOS 7...Maybe it's me... Maybe it's a glitch in the Matrix.  I have no idea but this photo should be better then the ones yesterday.  

I left everything out but the lines and the days.   No dates, no borders, no calendar, no nothing but space to write.

Week on two pages, differently...

For a while I've thought about weekly pages that had Monday through Friday on one side..

With the weekend on it's own page, split evenly between Saturday and Sunday.  Technically, it's a week on two pages but divided in a different way.

I made a sample for myself to use this week on the (adorable!) colored graph paper Pia sent me.  I'm using grey ink so in person it's readable, on camera it's a bit hard to see...

 I'm not jazzed about making pages each week, I prefer to have everything already done so I can put appointments in that are months down the road and no way am I going to make all 52 weeks in advance.  

What got me thinking about pages spaced like this is I use a combination of  two days per page and a week on two pages.     Busier weeks I use the former and slower times, the latter. 

But this might be an excellent combination for me.  I tend to dump a lot of what I do onto weekends.  I don't have a lot of work related things, rarely more then one appointment per day but all the other stuff, the family and personal obligation type things are almost exclusively on the weekend.  The fact that the majority of planning pages have halved days on Saturday and Sunday  exacerbates the problem like a sinus headache on top of a migraine.

I meant to run my thoughts passed everyone during the Filofax Enthusiasts refill concepts request  but life got in the way and so shoot, it didn't happen. 

I still think it could work and am wondering; are there refills like this already?  Or has anyone tried anything like this before?   Does it even make sense...
