Let’s be honest…I am a control freak. Pure and simple, no discussion. I like lists. In fact, I have lists for my lists. I crave order. My chaos must be controlled. It is a sickness (not a weakness…I’m too proud to be weak)!!
So what the heck is this mess?????
Believe it or not this is my to-do list!!
As most of you know we are in the process of relocating to England for a year. Maybe it’s because we’ve done this before or maybe it’s because I burned myself out with project planning, list making and “momzilla” moments when Erica got married in September, but this is really my packing to-do list!! What looks like a heap of junk really contain gentle reminders for me. Simple things like:
- Measuring cups → Kitchen gadgets
- Beret → Hats, mittens and scarfs
- Target bag → Prescriptions and bathroom supplies
- Exercise band →Work out clothes
- Belt → Scarves and clothing accessories
I could go on but I think you get the idea! A snapshot of my upcoming life strewn on the floor of my bedroom. How liberating!!!
Don’t worry about me though…I still have a three-ring binder chock full of spreadsheets, insurance policies, banking information and copies of every important document known to mankind. Is there a 12-step program for list-makers?
