    By "since" do you mean "from the time that" or "because"?

    From the time that we cancelled several meetings (which was a couple of weeks ago), I've made a new schedule. Here it is.

    Because we have cancelled several meetings, I've made a new schedule. Here it is.

    Re: i've made

    I know I'm nit-picking here, but between schedule and here, wouldn't a semi-colon work better?

    A semi-colon is fine, but I prefer the full stop (period). I see it as a new sentence for a new thought.
