I am a list maker.
I make lists for everything.
I have always been this way.
When I was in school, I was constantly making lists of this or that.

I make shopping lists
Cleaning lists
Birthday lists
Errands to do

Well this week, I got out my Notebook, you know that book I use to help organize my home and my mind...LOL. I know a lot of you have one too. I have had a Notebook for as long as I can remember, but FlyLady helped me too with it. I still get Fly Lady emails, I don't read all of them, but I can see the title of them and a little motivation gets kick started. There are also some blogs, that I read, that can really motivate me on certain days I need a little push.

So, back to my lists.
This week, like I do every week, I make a shopping list and a cleaning list. I have a list on my fridge, and when I use something up, I put it on the list and then on shopping day I take that and a piece of paper and make my master shopping list.

My cleaning list, WoW! I made a huge list, bigger then I usually do, and I have done so much. My girlfriend was here, so she watched Kevin, while I was able to go out and wash my car inside and out. It looks nice. She helped me with my laundry.....and while I was cleaning out under my bed, my friend made my Microwave sparkle:)

I like lists, they help me keep focused. I also love my Notebook, I have a lot of inspirational and motivational printouts that I have in there, to read. It is also nice to have a best friend, who really likes to help me. She has been my best friend since I was about 17, I am 39 it is a friendship that has been in my whole adult life.

It is Friday, and it is chilly. I am so thrilled the weekend is here, I hope my husband doesn't have to work tomorrow. Dinner is going to be something with ground beef. Last night I made pot roast in the crockpot with onion soup, oh it was like butter after cooking all day. Needless to say, I had no leftovers...LOL. I have a few more things left on my list that I want to finish. Happy Friday!

Julieann, Thank you for the motivation. I feel like a slug today. I should get back on the email list with Fly Lady. I should also begin lists. I really would like to stay on track better than I do. I appreciate your post. Hugs, Kathi
