I don't understand why not just say the day's mysteries? I have the day's assignments memorized, I never have to try to remember where I am.
I felt the same way the first time I prayed this novena 2+ years ago. Read the links. This is how the devotion was designed/revealed. The second time around I told myself I was not going to run things, that I would just do as I was told. Far more grace came from that novena than the preceding one. Read the links. Pray on it. We're just glad you want to pray it with us.
Carrie, I get mixed up, too, if that makes you feel any better. I've given up in the past and started saying the mystery typically assigned to each day of the week. Have even contemplated praying only the sorrowful mysteries everyday during Lent. Or the Seven Sorrows of Mary Rosary everyday during Lent. When I say the 54 day rosary novena alone, I start the joyful mysteries on a Monday, so there is no confusion. However, it is special that they are doing this Ash Wednesday to Divine Mercy Sunday! I'll see what I feel led to do.
I'm so appreciative to Amy and David for organizing the novena. I needed a nudge to go back to praying the rosary every single day. It's wonderful to share saying the rosary with others...
