Have you ever tried to finish everything on your daily To-Do list? Wait, do you have a hard time just getting started? That is me today. You know the list, the one we all keep in our heads and if you are like me- the one you write down each day. Yep, I'm a list girl. I have lists of my lists.
Each day when I arrive at work I open my pretty little daily journal. I have a stack of empty ones at home because I need a new one about every 3 months. And I keep them all. I am not sure if I or anyone else will ever be interested in the fact that on September 17, 2008 that I did laundy and unloaded the dishwasher. Or that I did a myriad of things at work that might bore you to death. These tasks lay forever in my book with big black lines through them. Well, some of them. Some remain forever on the page undone. I get so much satisfaction out of these lines- on par with icecream and chocolate.
Confession- sometimes I will scurry to my book, quickly write down something I just completed but forgot to put on the list- just so I can draw that FINAL black line.
Oh, I forgot to mention the stickers. I am 31 years old and I decorate my daily planner with stickers. Yes, I admit it. Stickers. As far as I am concerned no one is ever too old for stickers. Come on, all you scrapbookers out there...I know you get it.
So, while my colleagues and contemporaries run around out there feverishly clicking on their nifty little Blackberry or whatever, obsessing over their Outlook calendar- I am picking out stickers for my old fashioned notebook, my handmade calendar. Please tell me that someone out there does this too.
Well, now I can cross one thing off of my list today- posting my Thursday blog.
