To Do List


What would we do with out the ever present to-do list?? Some people are worn out by their never ending, ever lost to-do list but my list energizes me. It makes me feel accountable! It helps me feel accomplished!

On today's list at school:

1. Hire an interpreter for conferences
2. Finish the principal's newsletter for Friday
3. Sign and date all time sheets
4. Make sure Susie got my principal's report for the board packet
5. Finish my two observations
6. Wrap up our trip to Fulton on Monday
7. Go see the second grade's dress rehearsal for the concert tonight

Today's list for me:

1. Go to WW and join up!
2. Straighten up the main level so the housecleaners can clean!
3. Make my Thanksgiving shopping list
4. Call the oral surgeon about Ashley's procedure on Monday
5. Plan my excursions for Saturday (all the craft fests in town!)
6. Go to the concert tonight
7. Call the carpet cleaners

The best thing about these two lists are that they will probably be accomplished easily. Some lists aren't like that, such as the wedding list and Ashley's new business list, some things on that list haven't been crossed off in weeks.

But, that's the thing about lists, right, they motivate you to get going, get things done! I hope your list is a short one today!

This post was inspired by a blog I found called The To Do List Blog and you should go check it out. The author of the blog has published a book and I have put it on my Christmas list! ;)


  1. My world wouldn't work without a list!

  2. I just love the "straighten up the main level so the housecleaners can clean". I have an aunt that used to have a housecleaner come once a week. And she'd always clean the house before the cleaner got there because she didn't want the woman thinking she was messy. lol

  3. Hi Terri

    I'm a list maker, too! I am nearing the end of the wedding list!

    Happy Birthday on Saturday. I don't know if I've mentioned, the Bride's name is Terrie!

    Have a wonderful weekend. The craft events sound like fun!


  4. Good morning! I’m so glad to find your blog. My name is Nan and I’m new to blogging, having just started this week. I hope you’ll drop by for a visit when you get a minute.
    Have a fabulous day!

  5. I was just going to make my to do list for Christmas so I'm with you on this. Hey if you need a cheerleader with WW I'm there with you. I'm back on the program again after gaining a few pounds on a cruise. Have a good day!

  6. I just finished my Thankgsgiving shopping today. I can cross that off of my list...


  7. On my way to get my Thanksgiving shopping finished....
    hugs, bj

  8. Thanks for stopping by & the birthday wishes!

  9. I have so many lists that I get confused. I HAVE to have list. I love crossing things off. Problem is, there's always something new to add to the list. It's never ending.


  10. Okay Terry, I don't know about you, but I'm ready for nap now. Your list itself made me tired!

  11. Funny post and lovely blog!

  12. I always make myself lists as well...it just helps me get better organized. Hope you were able to get everything done that was on your two lists:-) xox

  13. I'm a list maker, too. I get much satisfaction in crossing off completed tasks. I also like recopying my lists!!!


Comments are the new hugs!
