The Dreaded List!

Lists can be my friend(Image courtesy of cooldesign/

Alright, I broke down. I gave in. I caved. I MADE A LIST!!

I don’t normally make lists because I lose them. I used to spend all this time making lovely and detailed lists only to misplace them and carry all the information in my head after all. As I’ve grown older I’ve found that my poor brain is growing sluggish and has stopped being my best friend. Well, now, add to that wedding plans and outfits for 8 people (the bride and one bridesmaid are taken care of), travel plans and many other tasks and I NEED A LIST!!

So, I awakened at 5:05 this morning with a bazillion thoughts and tasks and events running through my head and I jumped out of bed and sprang to the desk to write it all down. Has it helped? Well, it has helped in that I no longer feel the need to carry it in my puny brain. And it has helped that the notebook with the list is planted on my desk. And it has helped that I divided the tasks for today into 2 categories: clothes and food.

I’m not convinced that Lists will become my new best friend (replacing my brain), but I WILL say today’s list was very helpful and kind. Yes, it was a very good list!
