Lists. I don’t mean top 10 lists of this or that. I mean actual lists of things to do, things to pack, grocery lists, those kinds of lists.
I have lists made for everything. What I am bringing with me to South America. What I am leaving behind. What I need to buy. Where I am staying. What I am doing. It’s become a bit of an obsession over the past couple of days!!
I even have excel spreadsheets set up for my lists. List making is a serious thing for me! This is where the addiction of notebooks has come in handy. Of course, because I have so many notebooks, I also have duplicate lists in different notebooks. When I can’t find the original list, I just make another one!!
As I am about to leave for South America, I have lists everywhere. I also have piles of stuff with a note on top of them of what to do with them. This includes clothes and shoes.
Am I going crazy with my list making? I would like to emphatically say NO but today I realized that I think I am. I went for lunch, with a notebook in hand (one that already had lists in it!), and as I ate my lunch and updated my list – I thought what the heck am I doing?? I really just need to learn to go with the flow. I really want to do that while traveling through Chile, but my mind is saying NO YOU NEED TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING EVERY DAY! Ugh – my mind makes me crazy some days.
Maybe one day the obsessive list making will stop. In fact, I made myself stop this afternoon so I could blog about list making (hahaha!!). (I would share pictures of the list making, but I am slightly embarrassed at the amount of them I have…)
