Speaking of Lists

A to Z Badge 2012 (1)

I found mine for this challenge, and as fate would have it, I had nothing on there for the letter L. 

So I’ll go with ‘lists’.

I need lists.

I feel less scattered if I have a list to follow. 

The most important being my grocery list.  I know that’s pretty common with everyone.  The time I think I don’t need one is the time I will most certainly forget something.  Take today for example.  All I needed were four things, just four things:  tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, an avocado and french bread.  Do you think I managed to walk home with all of them?  Nope.  Didn’t make a list, forgot the french bread. 

When we were first married, we didn’t have a washer or dryer.  One day I stopped off at the grocery store to get one thing—laundry soap.  That’s all.  Nothing else.  Just laundry soap.  I paid, walked out to the truck, drove to the laundromat, filled the first washer up and realized I had left my laundry soap at the store.  I was too embarrassed to go back.  “Uh, I believe I forgot my laundry soap, here’s my receipt to prove it.”  Sheesh!

But on the flip side I was never good at tests in school that had lists. 

I was in one history class in high school where the teacher spent every day of that semester writing dates/events on the board.  We were required to copy what she wrote, study it and take a test that matched the dates with the person or event.  Forget it. 

Multiple choice was the worst.  I could’ve answered the question and got it right if you’d simply ask, but make me pick between A,B,C,D or all of the above and you’ve just managed to give me a huge brain fart. 

There you have it.  My thoughts on the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to lists.

What about you?  Are you a list maker?

It’s All Have List Have Peace Good!



  1. my daughter is a list maker...the kind that makes lists for her lists!

  2. I am definitively a list maker and a list keeper. I have a list of everyone on Hearts and when they joined. I am currently working on a list of who has posted their testimonies and picture to the album. I have a list of every book I own,in alphabet order by author. I could go on and on - yes journals and lists are very important to me.

  3. Not list makers here. Should be, but not. :/

    Brenda, I've passed on a blog award to you. You can find out about it here:

  4. I love lists too! HAVE to have them to keep organized. If I'm working from a list and end up doing something not ON the list...I'll add it, just so I can cross it out. Makes me feel productive. :-) Enjoy your blog! I'm popping in from A-Z.

  5. I love lists as well, but for some reason, some of lists, I just don't follow, or I forget about, go figure *giggles* Happy blogging, great atoz post!

  6. I'm more organized when I make lists. Unfortunately, I find very little time to write them!

  7. I'm a list maker by necessity. When I get off list, the day is just an interesting & productive but the list items still need to be done.

  8. I am not a very good at keeping lists. Although I just might be better organized if I need keep them.


Thanks for taking the time to visit with me. I enjoy your comments very much. :)
