Write That Down

I know I've mentioned this before.  More than a few times.  But I'll say it again.  I'm a list maker.  I love my lists.  They keep me organized.  I make To-Do lists, lists of books I want to read - and those I've already read (thank you Goodreads!) , I keep lists of what I need to get at the store, what I am making for dinner each week (thank you cozi.com!)  I even suppose my calendars could be considered a list of all the dates and happenings I don't want to forget about.  (and now it looks like I have a sort of list of all the lists I have!)

My problem is the things that don't make it on to a list.  If it's not written down, I tend to forget it.  (I'm pretty sure that's a very bad sign of something - but I don't want to think about that too hard Or I might start a list of all the things I imagine are wrong with me.)  This happens a lot when I think of something to blog about, or when I hear about a book I want to add to the TBR list, or when I hear a song I'd like to add to my iPod.  Of course I never have my actual list with me when this happens.  And by the time I have access to my list I have forgotten what I wanted to add to it!

I think what I might need is to start carrying around a teeny tiny little notepad and pen around on my person at all times.  Maybe on a ribbon around my neck!  That way when something comes up which I want to remember I can just make a note of it right then and there.   Then I can keep a list of all the things I want to add to other lists. 

Maybe this list thing is getting out of control.

  1. If you have a smart phone you can get a NOTES app that allows you to make lists on the go! I use my phone all the time for that...and then you always have it with you. My phone also allows me to do voice-to-text, so I can just speak it and not take the time to type it! I LOVE list making!

    1. I would LOVE the voice to text feature! My phone has a notes feature, but it is SUCH a pain in the behind to type on the phone I never use it.

    1. The notepad in the pocket works - until I wear something without pockets! HA! :) I can not imagine going shopping without a list! I know people do it, but I would come home with a cart full of nothing I actually went for!
