If you received an e-mail from me today, I'm going to come right out and tell you that it was on my list of things to do. Heck, if you got a text, it was probably written on my whiteboard.
I have this little problem where...I make lists. I mean, it's slightly embarrassing to the point where each room of our apartment is bound to be hiding at least four or five lists that I've made.
I'm not sure where this habit came from, but there's something reassuring to me about seeing everything that I'm supposed to do written out neatly on a piece of paper.
I don't stop at ''laundry'', or ''pick up mail''. I go to the full extent of ''get dressed'' and ''drink 8 glasses of water''. Sometimes, on a really rough day, I'll write things that I know I've already done...just to be able to feel slightly accomplished (I got that trick from my Momma).
Either way, I'm a serious list maker. It makes me feel more organized, more in control, and more ready to tackle all of the silly little things that make up my day. And because it's the new year, it's time to make a more heavy hitting list. A list of my goals for 2011.
(Thank you, Blogger, for including the bullet feature...I feel right at home!)

There it is! Do you make lists? Did you make a special one for the new year? I'd love to hear!
Happy List Making!
