I have never been one to make lists. Just didn`t like them. It helped that I seemed to be able to remember things. Even in university, I knew when essays and projects were due. Call it a gift. And then I got pregnant. Am I correct in assuming you have heard of pregnancy brain? Not only did dates and appointments make a quick exit from my brain, so did words, simple everyday words. Babbling idiot at times, I tell ya. But still no lists.
Fast forward to this fall. My memory has't improved but the amount of things that need to be done certainly has. So a few weeks ago, I broke down one morning and grabbed a scrap of paper. Jotted down a few things I needed to do that day, things that couldn't slip my mind like they had the day before. Now here's the shocker. The list worked. It worked, I tell ya. I emailed my brother-in-law. I made soap. I did all kinds of things. i even added yoga to the list and guess what? I did yoga! This list thing is amazing. Where has it been all my life?! It is revolutionizing my days. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration but I do feel a little more in control. And a little more control is definitely something I am needing.
