To-Do List

My to-do list before leaving for Africa:
1) Stop making lists on the back of receipts
2) Stop throwing away receipts
3) Combine receipts to form one big list
4) Remember to write things on the list
5) Post list on refrigerator
6) Try to remember what I was trying to remember by writing it on the list
7) DO IT

I'm so not a list person, but I'm finding that I won't get out of this part of our journey without one. Thus began my lists yesterday. One for packing, one to-do. It makes me cringe a bit to walk by my list and see all the things on it ... only to add more. BUT, I suppose it's all necessary, and will be worth it in the end. It's just too bad that tying a red string around my finger won't do the trick this time around.
