Usually, this system, or lack-thereof is perfect for me.
Maybe it's mommy-brain. Maybe it's just me. But, lately--I'm feeling like my mind is rearin' a million miles a minute thinking of all the things I have to do. How to pack it all into one day. Figuring out when and how, and OH crap! I forgot to do x, y or z.
It's kind of chaotic
It's kind of stressing me out.
It's making me feel a little irritable (and my husband can attest to that).
I was considering writing a blasted To-Do list.
But, I hate them. I do. I know there are some of you who could not live life without your technicolored sticky notes and to-do lists. But me? Typically...I don't like them. I don't need them. It's not me. Not my style, per-say.
As of lately....I feel like I need it, though.
Between my custom Etsy orders, the almost-flat tire my car is sporting and the appointment I need to book, the specific fabric I need to buy, the sewing machine that needs to be fixed, the kid that needs to be fed, and fed, and fed, shipping out my orders, grocery shopping, cooking dinner and de-thawing the meat, the meetings for Church, homework for the class I'm taking, changing diapers, pumping the ladies, putting away laundry, emailing so and so, meeting people for lunch or playdates......
my brain feels mucky.
It feels all jumbled...as if all of the "to-do's" were shaken up and spit out, looking like this:

So, last night...while I was feeding da baybeh...I used my good old iPhone notes section, and wrote a little ::gasp:: To-Do list.
Ironically....it made me feel a little better.
Seeing it written out makes me at least feel like I won't forget what needs to be done now.
So, all you to-do-listers can be proud.
I joined the club.
Well, for the time being, anyway.
