The List!!

November 20, 2008 by Maxi


Why, oh, why do we do this? We have this list of pesky little things that need to be done but we keep putting it off. Instead, we carry the list around in our purse or shoved in our pocket. It’s always there in the back of our brain—just waiting to pounce.

Something like this: It’s the end of the day and you collapse into bed. You expect to be out as soon as your head hits the pillow. Not happenin.’ You’re almost asleep when suddenly, your eyes spring open, hand slams over your mouth, it’s your friend’s birthday tomorrow. You forgot to get a card … it’s on the list.

Sooo? You live in California. She lives in Ohio.

Or this: It’s your anniversary. You spend a week getting ready. That night your man raves about dinner, the bedroom is perfect with scented candles and satin sheets, you look divine in a new negligee. Never has the electricity between you been so strong. You’re all over each other, he wraps his legs around yours and …


“Honey, I’m sorry. I forgot. I was going to get some razors but …”

Here’s my list:
– clean guest bathroom
– birthday cards Toni, Tyler
– pick up envelopes, razors
– dust spray for pc
– air freshener
– note pads
– white tissue
– make pic for Christmas cards

Toni and Tyler are my granddaughters-they live three hours away-Toni’s birthday is Dec.2- finally got card.

Having company for Thanksgiving – still haven’t cleaned guest bathroom.

What’s on your list?

May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
