List-y Type

I love making lists.  Lists are what save my a$$ a lot of the time!  The first thing I do when I get to work every day:  make a list of what I want to work on.  Not everything gets crossed off everyday (not by a longshot!) but it keeps me focused.  Grocery lists.  Three separate shopping lists adorn the side of my refrigerator:  Grocery, Target/Walmart, BJ's.  I keep a list in my dresser drawer of stuff I want to accomplish in my life, it's been there since 2001.  Two things are crossed off on it:  Become a Mom, and Learn to Drive a Manual Transmission!  There's a couple more I could cross off but want to be better at them first (Speak Spanish fluently.)  And yesterday, I made a list of things I want to knit by the end of the year for gifts.  That list.....well, I have a lot of work to do!  And I'm sure I didn't think of everything that I want to knit.  I always have a pad of paper handy to make a new list, I find it comforting.  I used to even keep pen and paper by the bed, so that if I couldn't sleep, I could make whatever list was floating around in my head and get it off my mind without leaving the warmth of my bed.  I guess I'm a freak like that.  :)

I am exactly the same way!! I have a specific notebook that I use to write down my lists. I hate it when I think of something to do or buy or remember in general and I don't have my notebook near me. Lately, I write a note in my phone until I can get it on paper. But I forget to check my phone sometimes and that drives me nuts. I'm so glad there is someone else out there that does this like I do!!
