1. Yes, yes, yes!!! That's an exact description of my brain too! Maybe they are long-lost siblings. Ha!

    Just wanted to pop over from my email-fed version of your post to say thanks. I read it, I recognized myself in it, and I loved it! I, too, find my version of your list binder as a good way to manage it all and, like you, I sometimes stray from the List Bandwagon. It's never pretty when that happens, is it?

    Thanks for writing and sharing. I enjoy reading here.

  2. I totally write down things I already did so I can cross them off….totally satisfying. And I might just leave the list out where my husband will see it, just so he knows I accomplished SOMETHING today.

  3. There you go, lurking in my brain again:) Only the kids/husband names are different ha-ha.

    I also do the list writing/crossing off thing…it's totally sane!!

    I use a spiral notebook – though I could definitely improve it. (The kids even decorated some and gave them to me for Christmas:) I've been under the weather the past couple of days and it's amazing what HASN'T gotten done and somehow we are all okay…but then, maybe that's because on normal days I work so hard to keep all the plates spinning?? Which is probably part of the reason I got sick in the first place…hmmmmmm

    Thanks, Sandy!

  4. Good stuff.

    About a year ago I think I wrote out a list of everything I needed to do and pinned it up on the microwave. It was 4-5 notepad papers.

    It's still up there – but about 3/4ths of it IS crossed out, and that does make me feel Victorious with a Capital V.

    Now we've decided to move in June. Oh, my word, my list is gonna cover the fridge now!

  5. Yes, this is good stuff (to borrow from Mindy's description).

    I actually do this list stuff in a notebook. If I didn't, I'd be lost, too.

    Lists, Bible reading, prayer keeps a day centered, profitable, and less hectic.

    Good post.

  6. Sandy,

    Pre purchase of the iPhone 4S (which comes complete with Siri – the personal assistant), my hand-written list for each day was written on the page of a the tear off calendar. The calendar page, complete with list and date and picture (or whatever model I bought for the year) was carried around until the list was completed.

    Love the Smartphone – portable, useful, compatible with home computer, etc, etc.

    As always – appreciate your posts.
