I have a love/hate relationship with lists. There was a time when I was younger I was just a bit obsessed with lists. I wrote out shopping lists, to do lists, what I was cooking lists, housework lists. In the end I had a list to keep track of my lists!
Then children came along. I tried to make lists, but found that saying, today I am going to do this and this and this, just didn't work. Especially when they were babies, coupled with my tendency to be a perfectionist, I found that when I made a list, I couldn’t accomplish the tasks on it. I would feel disappointed. I found that I put so much pressure on myself to do everything that I just couldn’t do it and I felt like a failure.
So even though a part of me itches to write myself a list, I have tried to control it.
