To Do, To Do, To Do!!

Adam has made me a firm believer of to-do lists! He has always kept a list of things that he needs to accomplish, short term and long term to-do's and if there is one person that I know who really accomplishes alot I would have to say that someone is Adam. So I have now become a person with an ongoing to-do list and I have got to admit it really has helped me accomplish the things that I need to. I think because of my lack of memory it is helpful to me to write things down so that I won't forget because most of the time I just forget to do things. Honestly!


There is nothing better than finishing something and then being able to cross it off your list. I love that! I have got to admit that sometimes I even put on my list easy things such as wake up, brush teeth, etc, just so I can cross it off. OK not really...but I have been tempted! Now I don't always finish everything on my lists in fact sometimes I carry a certain item on my list for months for example, paint the bathrooms. But the idea is that it stays on my list and eventually I will get the satisfaction of crossing it out. I love to-do lists!!

You must have a 28 hour day at your house! I love lists, too, especially when packing for a trip. It just makes everything feel so accomplished.

I'm ready to help you paint that bathroom red!

Do you cross off or make checks? I love the on-going lists that last for months/years. I have *paint my house* on that list as well.

Oh I definitely cross off, I make checks to show that I did something about it but I haven't yet finished it. And trust me Jen, I will not finish all of this in one day, I just add alot to my list so it gives me variety so I can pick and choose. Lori, if red is what I do, you will be the first one I call!!
