i’m a fan of lists

June 30, 2011

I am a big fan of lists. Huge fan. They keep me organized and I get true satisfaction of crossing things off and then seeing all my tasks done at the end of the day. I guess I am a visual person. I am also very tired lately. Like pull myself out of bed after 8 hours of sleep and still feel like I could sleep for another 8 more kind of tired. So instead of getting all creative I am just gonna make a list:

  • I sleep in the same clothes almost every week night and then wash them on the weekends. Is that gross? I figure I am clean when I go to bed and if all I do is sleep how dirty can I get?
  • My least favorite thing to do in the summer is blow dry my hair. I sweat through the entire process and then just get cranky.
  • I am teaching my husband how to use Facebook and Twitter. It’s a process.
  • We got Kodi’s ashes back last week and I have been sleeping with them on my night stand. I know that is probably unhealthy but I don’t care.
  • I have a hard ankle sock tan lane from my running shoes. I look completely ridiculous with sandals on.
  • Keith has been making Kale chips every weekend and he likes it!
  • I didn’t like Bridesmaids
  • Sometimes insurance companies surprise you.
  • I haven’t called my mom back or returned her texts in 3 days. I’m sorry mom! I promise to call you today!!
  • The bootcamp class I went to last night was hard and I liked it! The harder the better!
  • I have officially read 14 of the 16 Jack Reacher novels since being introduced to them about 3 months ago.
  • I have made migas for dinner for the last three nights in a row and somehow Keith isn’t complaining. (in my defense  my chickens are producing like crazy! We are getting close to 30 eggs a week!)
  • When I opened my electric bill last night I almost fainted.
  • And…it’s Thursday…2 more day until a long weekend. I think I can. I think I can. 🙂

Are you a fan of lists?

Anything you want to get off your chest?

    I LOVE lists too. I also do the same thing with my pjs, most weeks. 🙂

    I am most definitely a fan of lists. As I’ve posted about before – I have them ALL over my house. 🙂

    Your lists are fun 🙂 And it’s getting closer to us hanging out in Austin!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEEK. So much packing left to do in 8 days!

    Another list lover here! And I also HATE blow drying my hair in the summer – it’s the worst!

    Blow drying my hair is the absolute worst since I have to blow dry and then straighten! It’s useless because I sweat while I’m doing it, which just makes my hair curl back up!

    And a confession? I want to quit my job but I’m scared! Ahhhh!

      I know that can be really scary but I also know how sucky it is to be miserable! If you can afford it then I say do it and go after what you really want. If you can’t afford it then start saving money like crazy so you can! I think being happy in your professional life is so important since we spend so much of our life at our job.

    I do the same thing w/ my PJs! I shower before so it’s not really gross… I think? 😉 Love your blog! You seem like a great person 😀

      Thanks Camilla….that is really sweet of you!!

    I love lists. I posted one today, but you already know that. 🙂
    I don’t blow dry my hair when its hot out. I throw some curling product in it and hope for the best.
    I also sleep in the same clothes every night. I think its fine. I also workout in the same clothes though, so my hygiene is suspect.

    I sweat when I blow dry my hair too!!! I thought I was the only one!!!! So I just stop blow drying my hair in the summer…too lazy and too much to do!

    I LOVE lists too…everything requires a list! Blow dryer my hair is definitely one of my least favorite things to do! Hope you can get some relaxation this wknd!!

    Oh girl, I’m right there with you and the whole blow drying my hair in the summer. If I am going somewhere I make sure I have plenty of time so I can dry my hair, cool off, and then flat iron 20 minutes later.

    • June 30, 2011 10:36 am

      Elena…exactly! I swear it is process. I shower and then I let my hair air dry for a little while so I can use the blow dryer less. Doesn’t matter because I sweat like crazy. I take another 20 minute break to cool off and then flat iron. Grrrrr!

    I live on lists! Loveee them 🙂
    I need to get this off my chest: when the heck will people ever grow up?! I still feel like I am in high school surrounded by the “mean girls” that used to make me feel like crap

    • June 30, 2011 10:35 am

      I’m sorry Tessa! I hate that for you. No one should make you feel inadequate because you are a wonderful person!!

    I’m a huge fan of lists as well, especially calendar-related to-do lists. My hubby laughs at me because sometimes I’ll write something down I’ve already done on a busy Saturday just to feel accomplished.

    I love lists! Especially if I can write them out all neatly with a pen on a ccrisp new pad of paper lol. I have yet to see bridesmaids but I really had no interest (in that OR the hangover 2), I’m thinking maybe you are preggo for being so tired?, I’m SO glad it’s almost a long weekend! I need it! Haapy Thursday!

    I wear the same pjs too. And use the same towel for a while.

  15. June 30, 2011 8:28 pm

    I don’t think I”m a fan of lists except when they are to do lists that are all done! 😛

    I am so sorry to hear about your pup and I totally understand wanting to keep the ashes close. I am the worst about returning texts and messages as well I just try to tell people that it isn’t personal!

    uugh to the electrical bill – what else are you supposed to do when its so hot except use the AC!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

  16. June 30, 2011 9:35 pm

    I’m with you on pjs. And I use the exact same logic.

    How many chickens do you have? 30 a week – you could start selling some!

    I have lists for every day. I love crossing things off!

    And I too sleep in the same clothes all week until I do laundry. Makes sense to me!

    If you need someone to take some eggs off your hands…. you know who to ask!! 🙂 Just sayin…
