I am a control neurotic freak.
I feel the need to organize every detail of my life. I plan. I make lists. I make schedules. I like to know what is going to happen waaaaaaay before it actually happens. Plus, I make plans for any and everything that might possibly ever go wrong.
I am VERY type A.
I haven’t always been this way. I use to be the spunky, fly by the seat of your pants, gypsy type.
I had a kid. It is amazing how someone so small can make such big changes in someone’s life.
But… it occurred the me the other day that my organization might be getting out of control. I am going to tell you guys something that I haven’t admitted to anyone yet…
I have a list…
…Of the lists that I have.
Like, an actual list that lists all of the lists that I have made. WHO DOES THAT? I can’t help myself I love to be organized. I print a schedule weekly of mine and Grey’s activities… planned in 30 minutes increments of course. I have a weekly menu plan that lists not only dinners… no that isn’t enough for me… mine has every meal of the day including snacks. I have more cleaning lists than I will ever admit to anyone, but they include a seasonal list, a monthly list, a weekly list, and a daily list. I have lists of friends and family’s birthdays and addresses. There is a list of possible gift ideas for people. There might even be a list of the things I have pinned on Pinterest that I want to try.
This doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of my organization addiction. All of these lists are organized in binders that I use to micro-manage.
I am laughing at myself as I type this because I sound ridiculous. But it makes me happy to have a plan. Hopefully someone will be there to bring me back to earth if it gets too out of hand.
Are you guys planners or go with the flow? Do you have any weird lists of your own? (please do not share your hit list with me, I will have to report you)
