A couple of days ago I decided that I could no longer take the thoughts of everything I needed to complete running through my head. I was getting overwhelmed with everything that has to be done before we can move out, so I did what I always do in these situations.
I made a list.
I plopped myself down at our kitchen table and jotted down every single thing I could think of that needed to be completed before we’re ready to move. Then, I organized the list into days, and stuck it to the fridge right next to our calendar.
Let’s zoom in on the calendar really fast and see if there’s anything important happening today…
What’s that say on July 18th? CLOSING! That’s right – today is the day that Corey and I will finally get the keys to our new house placed in our hot little hands, and we can’t wait!
But, back to the topic at hand. I’ll talk about closing in detail later this week!
As soon as I finished writing the list, I could feel the stress melting off of me. I was officially organized, and I would know what needed to be taken care of on any given day.
Here’s what this week’s to-do list looks like.
And here’s next week:
It is such an exhilarating feeling to look at a list of things I need to do next week and see the word “move” included. LOVE IT.
But, I have to admit, I felt like maybe I was being a bit neurotic by creating this list. I mean, in reality, these are all things I’m probably going to remember to do – I strongly doubt I’ll forget to pack our bedroom decorations or something. But to see it all laid out like this really made me feel like I could handle it and like I had a plan of attack to get everything accomplished.
Which brings me to the point of this post – am I crazy, or just organized? Are you a list-maker too, or do you prefer to just wing it?
