I think I have issues. I am in love with lists. All day long I have been thinking of ideas for today's blog and what I came up with was a list. But Wednesday was a list of sorts, and well, who wants to read a blog full of lists? Not me!
Not only do I love lists, but really any and all things that are associated with organization. Labels...LOVE THEM. It is a good thing I don't own a label maker. I would label everything. Dividers for notebooks, file cabinets, labeled files, folders, small dividers in my drawers, I could go on forever! I get excited just talking about them. One day in Dallas, Jason came home with new labels for our file cabinet printed out on gorgeous new labels. It was the greatest day ever. I also love post its and all post it related products. Each year when my mom does our taxes (she is a CPA) she gives them back to me and has little sticky notes to indicate where we should sign. I know where to sign, I just love the sticky notes.
Like I said, I have issues.
But I am not the only one. I won't name any names, but a certain 30 year old, handsome man that I live with and is the father of my children has the same disease I do. Love of organization and orderliness is what we call it. OCD is what everyone else calls it. This man I am not naming has a closet that is organized by color and type of clothing. He also has a very specific system for socks, t-shirts and underwear I won't get into in order to respect his privacy. He has also been known to spend an entire day re-organizing the kitchen cabinets because he thought of a more efficient way for the plates to be stacked, or a more logical way to store my millions of bowls (another obsession for another day).
The examples of our craziness could go on for days and days. I could make a list, but that would just put me right back where I started....a compulsive list maker. So I will avoid lists for today, and by avoid lists I mean avoid writing about lists, sort of.
ps. I am now going to cross off #5 (write blog) of my list of things to do today! Go me!
