Hello, my name is Michelle and I am a compulsive list maker. That’s right. I make lists.
Grocery lists, packing lists, blog lists, cleaning lists, “to do” lists, baby lists, house lists… the lists, they are endless. I cross the done things out with a single line through it, preferably with a black Sharpie. The lure of the cross out is so tempting that I’ll write a cleaning list that includes Living Room: vacuum, dust, windex… just so I can cross them all off individually. I’ve got it bad. BAD, I say!
It drives Dave absolutely nuts. He is decidedly not of the list making type.
The things that don’t get done get moved to a new list. You can see why finding 5 lists with a dozen crossed out things and repeats of those that never get done might drive Dave to drink just a little?
Which are you, list maker or not?
