a checklist

I make lists.  I make lists of lists.  I list like crazy.  And now what am I doing?...listing about listing.  In honor of my love of listing, I am making a checklist of things I plan to do soon to keep my sanity.  Things that I just don't get around to enough anymore that really are a must in life to settle my soul and ease my mind.

-take Boone for a walk (more than just maybe once a week...poor pup)
-read blogs more often...they encourage and inspire me
-comment and encourage you lovely blog friends as you do me.  I'm so thankful for you!
-spend time with my hubby with nothing in the way.  no computers.  no homework.  no papers to grade or drafts to edit. just us.
-maybe go to a pumpkin patch.  pick a pumpkin.  carve a pumpkin.
-"blog ahead" (you know what I'm talking about if you schedule posts)
-read more of my current read...Radical by David Platt
-catch up with a friend (s)
-plan some nice meals instead of just the same ol' ones
-paint.  as in a landscape.  or a portrait.  something...anything to get the artist side of me rolling again.
-spend more time in silence with God
-bake cookies
-make some lemonade and tea for the fridge
-send a card to my brother who's away at college to let him know I think of him and pray for him daily
-soak in every ounce of fun that my 4th grade team has planned for our kiddos the week before fall break.  allow their joy and "carefree-edness" to rub off on me.
-laugh more
-make more jewelry for my etsy shop (to window or "real" shop...see tab at the top of my blog)
-get my hair cut (yay for my appointment tomorrow!)
-plan a fun date or two with my handsome hubby

And the big one...stop putting off things like the ones on this list.

Pin It!


  1. i love lists too! : )
    you'll have to let me know how you like Radical.
    I can't wait to see what else you make for your shop! I bought something today : )

  2. I also make lists! I am also reading Radical too...it is really good and I have only read one chapter! Have a great evening!

  3. Hi Cait. I'm totally a list maker too. I actually need to adopt the list you posted for myself (well, minus the school stuff!). You've inspired me to go through my days and re-prioritize. What use is a day that doesn't include the REAL stuff? The stuff of lasting importance? Hope your day is a good one...and full of good things. Like fresh baked cookies and jewelry making with a brand new haircut :-)

  4. I also love lists. I think they really help me focus on the things that need to be done!

  5. What a wonderful list! I'm reading Radical too... Or trying with all the other "stuff". Great book! Only 7 days girl.

  6. I'm coming over from Natalie's blog! We were both tagged in the 8 question game today! I love your blog and I'm your newest follower! Hope you are having a great day! :)

  7. hey I just found your blog, I hope you don't mind me following along! I have one as well, which you can find by clicking me name (obviously) ahah! Have a good weekend!
