List Maker, List Maker Make Me A List!

I'm anal. I admit it. I find the need to make a list for just about everything I do in life. It gives me a sense of accomplishment to break out my trusted Sharpie, blue of course, and mark big lines through each task. C'mon girls, you know what I'm talking about!



I just felt the need to make another list today for no other reason except it will make me happy!



Top Ten Reasons Why I Make Lists!



1. It gives me an excuse to buy little notebooks~preferably the 5 x 7 size with a pretty little flower or a cute little kitten on the front.



2. I do derive pleasure in knowing that it drives my family crazy. ;o)



3. Let's face it...I'm old and I forget what I'm doing. It's a nice reminder of what needs to be done...that is, if I remember where I put my list!



4. I have plenty of time on my hands right now and after eight months of sitting in the same spot you have to find some way of entertaining yourself!



5. Making lists gives me a chance to write with my way cool pens with different inks. And we all know that when I write in blue it makes me happy!



6. It also helps me practice my cursive writing. Since we have all gone techno how many people actually sit down and write anymore?



7. I like to make my kids sweat when making a chore list. You should see the droplets on their foreheads and the wringing of their hands when I get to number #12!



8. How else can I participate in Thursday Thirteens and 1000 Blessing's Fridays if I don't make lists. Why do you think I love them so?



9. Because I love to hear myself say "CHECK" while I make the same sign with my index finger!



10. I can pretend I am David Letterman with my own talk show and I am filthy rich!

So let me in on your secrets! What's something you do that drives your family crazy, but you have to do it anyway?

I had to make a top ten list on my blog yesterday! Lists are kind of fun because you feel accomplished when you finish. I love your #10 - You can be like David Letterman. Aaaah, if only we'd get paid like him to make a top ten list!!

Funny list Amy!

I seriously need to start making lists. LOL! I am starting to get old, and am too easily distracted, oh I don't why, because I have 5 children including my husband who can't find something or need something done. Let's see it's 5 against one.

Walking around the house or pacing back and forth, while I talk on the phone, drives my family nuts.

HUGS!

I'm a list maker, too. With all the chaos around here, I can never remember what needs to be done. A list gives me a little peace of mind.

I'm not as big of a list maker, I make them and then don't use them!

It drives Paul crazy that I put too much on my plate!

I just posted one of the things I do that drives Joe crazy in yesterday's post - I try to talk to him throughout a movie or tv show we are watching about what is going on :)
