A List of Lists

We found out last week that we need to be on the other side of the country by November 1.  Not too bad, right?  That's still a good three months away.  Moving is a part of the Navy lifestyle and isn't really unexpected in the least.   But now it means it's time to get organized.  One thing I know how to do is make a list... and here is my list of lists:

1. Grocery List (always ongoing)
2. Local Activities To Do Before We Move
3. Purge and Organize (basically this is just a list of every room and closet in our house)
4. Things To Do for Renting Our House
5. Things To Do for House-Hunting Trip
6. Things To Do for My Sister's Baby Shower
7. Phone Calls to Make Locally (Utility Companies, Dr's offices, etc.)
8. Phone Calls to Make At Our New House (Housing Office, Pre-Schools, Utilities, etc.)
9. Packing List (Items that need to come with us and NOT get packed by movers)
10. Decisions That Need To Be Made

You know you're making lots of lists when your daughter plays pretend and says, "I'm the Momma and I'm making a list!"


  1. love it! I am the queen of lists too. Fun to have found your blog.

  2. Thanks so much. Glad you are enjoying the blog!
    Lists are like little bits of bliss, eh? And to cross an item off, ah, pure joy. :o)
