There’s a list for that!

As I grow older I find that my life is lived by lists. I have several shopping lists on my smart phone (I love “out of milk”) , I keep a running list of grocery needs on a magnetic white board on the fridge, I have a ton of lists at work both on my computer and on post it’s all over my cubicle. Almost every weekend I make a task list of all of the things I need to get done. I’ve looked for smart phone apps for task lists but I’ve never found one that I like so I stick to paper lists for my “to do” lists. Every time I go on a vacation I make a list of what I need to pack. I am so dependent on my lists that there are times I make lists for what I need lists for! I also use my smart phone for reminders, and have even tried to use my calendar reminders as a to do list but that never works very well. I belong to a book club and I have lists of books that I want to read and books that are in contention for picks when it’s my turn to pick the book. I have lists of movies I want to watch on flitter, netflix, and amazon. I have lists of books I’ve read on goodreads. Last fall I discovered a calendar/planner/ list maker that I believed was the answer to all of my listing needs. I downloaded pages and tried it out and really found myself focused and productive. It was a kickstarter project and I ordered one in December. I was so excited about it. Unfortunately the business owner ran into issues with shipping and I did not get it until February. By that time the thrill was gone and it’s just sitting on the table. I hope to revive it and use it eventually but I haven put that on any of my to do lists. Here is the link if anyone is interested. Watch the video. The picture below was taken on Saturday morning as I worked through my to do list for the weekend. I took the picture in monochrome and tweaked it in snapseed.

am in my early 50's and enjoy writing about all of the stuff that comes up when you are in your early 50's. I am somewhat disorganized with blogging, thus I have several blogs started, then forgotten about once those "thoughts" give away to other "thoughts." This musing of a blog seems to be the one I come back to the most, so here is where you will find me.
