Thing I Love: Making Lists (primarily To-Do Lists)
I told you it was coming, so here's the deal. I love making lists...packing lists, to-do lists, places to go lists, lists, lists, lists. I love them. There is something about having it all right there on paper and knowing exactly, in order, what's going on. To-do lists rule my days. Every morning, my first task is to make a list, in priority order of things that MUST be done. Even when I leave the house, I make a detailed list of places to go, in the most logical order with a list of things to do/get at each location. I even have to-pack lists typed up and saved on my computer so that if I am going somewhere that I have gone before, be it an overnighter to my mom's, to camp, or to the beach, I know exactly what to pack every single time. One of my favorite to-do lists of all time is the Middle School Music Week To-Do List that Lori and I have tweaked over the past couple of years. It's about 2 pages long, and it tells us step by step, month by month, exactly what we need to be doing to have everything done before camp. It's even color coded. I love it. Lists are what keep me sane throughout the day. I have so much going on here and there, I don't know whether I'm coming or going most days. If I don't write it down, I am sure to forget it. I am obsessed with to-do lists, and I am ok with that!
PS...to all my faithful blog readers: I would like for you to know that you DO NOT have to be a fellow blogger to comment on my blog. I have it set up so that anyone can comment, even if you don't have a blogspot account. It's fun, and I would love to hear what you guys think about all this randomness!
