Poor Carmen, I have been telling myself I was going to link up to her "to-do" posts for a long time. But, we're here now. Hooray, again!
Honestly? It has changed MY LIFE! Ha...Seriously. I have been using a little notebook and adding things to my list...along with marking things off ever since school started last week. I think this is a large part of the reason why my house is actually *kind of* clean/picked up. I love the "doing little things at a time" attitude this list-making evokes...not quite so overwhelming, I must say.
Well, here are the things I'd like to finish by Friday or Saturday. Some of them are school/work-related so I realize they don't have much meaning to you...but to me...yowza. I actually feel pretty good about what I got accomplished tonight. Here is my most updated list (no longer including things that I marked off tonight).
Grade Math Assessment 10.8
laminate a few things I've been putting off
Hang 20 "word wall" words
iron/hem curtain that goes in classroom door/window
Double-check due date of student loan
Go to the bank
Send necessary emails
look up some new recipes/start grocery list for upcoming week
dust living room/dining room
I was a bit vague on some things. I felt silly detailing exactly whom I "need" to email, etc. Although I'm sure those people would be flattered, I don't think everyone needs to know EVERYTHING.
I feel super lame saying this, but it was fun. Thanks for the idea, Carmen! I'm sure I'll be linking up again sometime soon.
If you are a reformed clutterbug/control freak/person-of-organized-chaos like me, then I highly suggest you try this "to-do list" method. It really does make life (and organized living) much easier.
Love and lots of check-marks,
I have too many lists! I love writing it down but I have various ones on different notepads/sticky notes! What grade do you teach? I am an SLP in a middle school and I knwo all aout laminating and the word walls that teachers have to make!! Good luck...you can accomplish your list!!
Ah, yay! I'm so glad you're enjoying the to-do lists too. It's been really helpful for me, because I'll forget halfway through the week and then click over and remember! And I don't know that dusting has ever made my to-do list--I'm impressed!
What a cute idea! I'm ridiculously addicted to "to-do" lists. I have millions of post-it notes in a variety of colors with all kinds of scribbles on them.
I want to know what "Word Wall" words are. :)
Lists really are amazing. Although I tend to get a little OCD when I'm hand-writing them out. If I forget something and it's added at the bottom where it doesn't make sense chronologically... I re-write the whole thing. Same goes for bad handwriting and other careless mistakes. Why I never type them up is beyond me. At least the stuff (usually and magically) gets done!
