Curling, A Chore?

I love a list.

I love to make a list.

I love to mark things off of a list. In fact sometimes I add things to it that I've already done just so I can mark them off.

I'm not the only one right?

Well, Monday I made a list. Not my best one ever. Nothing lofty on this list. Here's a sample.

clean refrig
hang and tag clothes for DDG
mop floors
sweep garage
take clothes to a&e's
hang Samuel's shelf

It is now Thursday and I have marked one thing off the list. Just one thing. I haven't even added anything to mark off.

And it isn't that I haven't done anything this week. Because I have. I really have. Just nothing list worthy I guess.

So today, I'm on a mission to complete my list. I will do it. I will!

Oh! The one item I completed? Mopping. Its my new favorite chore. It reminds me of my new most favorite Olympic sport-Curling. You should see me go. I think I could take that girl from Canada on!

Do you make lists?


  1. you are so funny. Come mop for me, please

  2. I make lists too. I have them everywhere. It helps me keep things straight. Now where did I put that list.... Ha!

  3. You can do it!! I love lists too. You can add "make to-do list" onto your list, and then mark that off too. =p Good luck with completing your tasks.

  4. Oh yeah - I definitely make lists. Grocery lists, meal plan lists, to-do lists.....I like lists! :)

  5. I love lists. LOVE lists. It helps me so much to have a visual of what I need to accomplish. Now, that said, I'm not a huge fan of mopping and would just love to have you come 'curl'. You don't live in California, do you? LOL

  7. Oh, loved this post! My friends call me the "List Queen." I don't know how folks operate without them. And, like you, there's something theraputic about marking the items off. Blessings to you! Oh, since you love mopping, do you have a Shark Steam Mop? They are "the bomb" and I love mine. You might love mopping even more if you had one of those. :o)

  8. I make lists, I just forget to consult them...I am hopeless really. And, if you really LOVE mopping, I would like to cordailly invite you to my house!

  9. Hi,my name is Cari and I am a chronic list maker!
    I make so many lists that now my six year old is making them!

  10. Yes, I make lists. Yes, I add what I've done (that's not on the list) just so I can mark it off and celebrate the accomplishment. And, I hate mopping. Will you mop my floors? They need it desperately! I'm sure I can find something to do for you in return! :-)
