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.
