Creature of Habit (Well, I want to be, anyhow)

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I made lists that included me peeling wallpaper. Well, I find myself making lists everyday now. Different lists: grocery lists, organization lists, to-do lists, idea lists, weekend lists, etc. I find myself looking forward to writing them. More so than actually accomplishing the tasks on the list.
Currently I'm writing this list:

Weekend List:

buy birthday present for a birthday party tomorrow (creative ideas?)
take out spring/summer wardrobe for everybody
deep clean upstairs and downstairs
and, of course, the everpresent: PEEL WALLPAPER in upstairs bathroom

I'd like to transfer my desire of MAKING lists to actually ACCOMPLISHING them (especially that BATHROOM!). At least I feel like I'm getting SOMETHING done if I write down what I want to do. Maybe if I set a timer that would help.

When Michelle and I lived 5 doors down from each other, we would set a time that we HAD to do something 30 minutes and then we would go to each others house for a while and do it again. It was a lot of fun.
You need a "chore" buddy!

LOL! I remember that Missy. That was so fun!

I am the same way with lists. I could make them all that I don't have to start them ;)

I LOVE YOU said...
