{ The List }

My Name is Brittany and I am a list writing, task checking, calendar marking, will be lost if I don’t write it down, list on top of list addict. 

Hi Brittany…..

Seriously though, I don’t think I can go through a day with out writing a list. If I don’t then I feel like I am not organized. At work I know what I need to get done as soon as I walk into my office, but I can’t start doing them until their written down on my yellow note pad. Because if they are not written down then how can I check them off to tell myself that I have done them! It definitely has to do with my need to accomplish things. I need to see that they were accomplished or else I don’t get satisfaction from doing those things.
I make even make list of list sometimes. 
Such as, with my grocery list. I can’t just write a list of all the items I need to buy, I have to organize them into where you buy them in the store.
  • Dairy
  • Deli
  • Meats
  • Frozen
  • Toiletries
  • Paper Items
Sometimes I write my list and tell my self, “There are only 10 things on the list, you can get them with out it”. So I leave the list in my purse and sure enough I forgot something!!! Must always ALWAYS read the list and check off items.

This weekend I am excited because George and I are going to the Spearfish Canyon Lodge in Spearfish, SD (Black Hills)! For our one year anniversary my parents gave us a wonderful all paid weekend at the Lodge with a snow mobile package included! We get two nights stay, one couples breakfast, one couples dinner, two cocktails, and a one day snow mobile rental that includes 350 miles of trails to ride on. I have never driven a snow mobile so I am very excited since we each get our own so I can go at my own pace. George gets a little more gutsy then I do at times which I learned from our time when we went and did trails on our 4-wheeler.

With a trip though means LIST LIST LIST!
