List this

You know that perfect list? The one that's really clear and tells you exactly where you're going and what you have to do to get there and what's most important to you?

I've had to make a lot of lists lately. I've been a little (a lot) distracted lately, what with getting my ass kicked, ending my life-long relationship with the word never and becoming a really reserved, flexible, tolerant new me. So at work and at home I've had to make lists just to get through the day and accomplish the minimum necessary. They've even come in remarkably handy in other arenas as well. I'm sure someone out there is enjoying the benefits of my new-found list-making skills right now.

So here's my question for the day: What or who is at the top of your list?

i never make lists. never have, never will. i prefer the spontaneity of realising i've forgotten something important, then tap-dancing around the problem anyway. and if people don't know what they want or how to get there without making lists, they are never going to do it. pft to lists and wishy-washiness and ass-kickedness.

Even my lists need list because at the top of the list is - get organized - so list just create more lists, thus more work. . .uugghh too many lists! Good luck with your list.

At the top of my list is making sure The Child's high school apps get filled out in time, planning the menu for Carnevale and booking a flight to France for aforementioned child.

We should probably talk.

With a baby due in a week and a half, my lists--sigh, plural--are getting so out of control that I don't even look at them any more. And then I panic every two or three days.
