I’m a list-maker. I make lists of things I need to do each day, whether at work or at home. I also make lists of Christmas gift ideas throughout the year so that I have ideas when it comes time to buy things.
Up until last summer, I kept track of how many miles I ran or walked or biked each day. (I stopped when I had bunion surgery.)
I make grocery lists, shopping lists, lists of recipes I want to try. I fold down pages in my book of knitting patterns to mark which ones I want to attempt, and after I’ve tried them, I make a note of whether I liked it or how it looked. I used to make meal plans for each week, until that got too overwhelming.
One year I had one of my college professors give me a summer reading list.
I’m starting to think I might be a little bit obsessive about lists.
I can’t decide if this is a good habit, or whether it’s unhealthy.
I might have to make a pros and cons list to help me decide.
