what's the big to do

we all have them - to do lists. i'm a crazy list maker. like almost obsessed with lists. i've been a little bit better lately - not so many lists. i think that perhaps i've got some of the juggle down with two kids and a full time job. i think also that i've let a lot of stuff slide. i still keep my grocery list typed in the computer in aisle order and i have all of our pack lists for trips saved too! i keep a list of assignments that i have due and any scrapbook calls on a white board in my room - with a little corner for things i need to purchase as well.

shandy asked us to share our to do lists for today. the x next to the item means i finished it. i'm not sure much of this will get done.

well that's it. i used to write shower on my list, empty dishwasher, clean kitchen. but now i know i can get these things done without writing them down. for awhile i felt so overwhelmed that i needed my list to guide me. it gave me a sense of accomplishment. now i'm just happy to be able to get things done. oko well i confess i do email myself at home to remind myself to do things and i'm not above leaving a message on the answering machine either! yes i'm a little whackdoo!

Geez... no WONDER you have to make lists... you have SO much to do. I just want you to know that I, too, have my grocery list on my computer in aisle order. I laughed out loud when I read that. But it is SO much faster than having to write a new one each time I go!

So happy to know I'm not the only list maker, only, you sound organized with your lists..I write random things all over the place and then have to gather all of those lists into one big list and so on...=) You are a busy lady!! Time should just stop so we can all just scrapbook....
