Lists, oh wonderful lists!

Are you a list person? I am. Not only do voluminous lists give me a practical use for all that stationery I can't resist (*T-shirt wearing member of office supply lovers anonymous*), but it lulls me into mistakenly thinking I have things under control.

Lists made so far today in between everything else:
-- menu for next week
-- which then led to the grocery list
-- which led to the bulk store list
-- holiday plans list for November/December including timing for gifts and cards
-- which led to the gift list for said holidays
-- and, of course, the card giving list
-- appts to get out of the way before end of year
-- exercise plan for December
-- shutting down the cottage list (needed for this weekend)
-- tools needed for various projects and plans involved in shutting down the cottage

and the lists go on.

I'm only a list person for certain thing. I am a note person, since I can't remember what I was doing 5 minutes ago, so I need a lot of reminders. :)

Also, you must be scarily organized - timing for cards and gifts?!

Oooh, notes. My brain immediately imagines lots of multi-colored, differenly shaped post-its!

Well, timing needed to get them bought, made, wrapped, filled out and to the post office.

Did I mention lists are also a wonderful procrastination tool?

No? Silly me.

Um. You keep imagining that. I'm sure my tattered scraps of paper would offend your organization sensibilities!
