The Laundry List

Do you have a forever~growing list?
Not just the laundry but a laundry list!
The list that seems to never end, just like the laundry!

I have one, or two, or three, or more!
I don't know how many really, because I write them and then lose them.

Today, I will blog it!
My laundry list, and maybe, just maybe, I will accomplish something on my list, before it gets lost.

Are you ready?

OK, so I feel like that is a good start to my summer list.
What about you? What do you have planned to accomplish and cross of your laundry list?


  1. Hi, at least having it on the blog you won't lose this list. I'm the same way, I write lots of lists but never look back at them. Probably would be a good idea to try and find some cheap help for some of the jobs. Look at one of the LifeBoat members, she asked for help with her yard and got it. Don't overwhelm yourself, things will get done when they need to be done.

  2. I'm a major list girl. I have a daily list and then a more long term list. The long term list is usually in my head but it is still a list. Go for it!
