Thursday, June 3, 2010


I survive on checklists.  There's nothing more satisfying than summing up a daunting task into a word or phrase and slicing your pen through it like Zorro after it's been completed.  Grocery lists, packing lists, homework lists, favorite song lists, the lists are endless.  I think that's why I've been feeling stuck in a rut lately.  There are so many things I want to do this summer, but it's all floating around in my head (a la Catface?) and then I get cloudy and confused.  So without further ado, here is my checklist for Thursday, June 3, 2010.
