Do you make lists? I am a list maker. It's the only way I remember anything. Often by the end of the week I have multiple small lists in my purse - on sticky notes, on receipts, whatever. I usually sit down and combine them into a master list of To-Do's.
This is my current list:
Driving School - this is a reminder to sign my son up for driver's ed. It has been transferred through at least 3 lists. I think you'll understand why I'm in no big fat hurry to get this done.
Transfer Money - this is a reminder to transfer money from our savings account to our checking account to cover the checks I wrote. Two weeks ago. Oops.
The Shack - this is the name of a book a friend wants me to read. I don't remember which friend and I don't remember what it's about. Hey, at least I remembered that it was a book!
Schedule annual gyn appt - well, I don't have to explain why this one keeps getting transferred from list to list. I think I'd rather sign my son up for driver's ed.
Mammogram - see previous list item which must be accomplished to get the referral for this smashing good time (pun very much intended).
Dentist - well, I'm on a roll here. Three of my least favorite things to do on earth. Have someone examine my nether regions while my legs are in the air, have someone smash my boobs, or have the evil dental hygienist scrape my teeth until my gums bleed. The decision on which to do first (last) is almost too much excitement for one day.
B-Day card for SH - but hey, her birthday isn't until the 19th! I can still complete this one on time! If I hand deliver it...
Ibuprofen - was supposed to add this one to the grocery list. Maybe next week.
Can you see why my lists never get done?? Ah, but there's another week ahead and another transfer of things to do on a nice clean sheet of paper. And wouldn't it be nice if my list said "Nothing".
