I love lists. As I get older, I am starting to see little glimpses of how I am turning into my mother!… which isn’t a bad thing! My mother, by far, makes the most intensely detailed lists I know and she’s taught me well.  It wasn’t uncommon for our “Vacation Packing” list to be 5 pages long with each item divided up but each child’s initials.  Yes, it may be extreme, but it worked!

I’m definitely a “To-do” list writer.  I have an unhealthy obsession with crossing off “completed tasks”.  For instance,  I will commonly write down something I’ve already completed, just to CROSS IT OFF MY LIST! There have been many days when I’ve finished something and became extremely disappointed when I realized it never made “The List” in the first place! haha

Wow. I probably shouldn’t have admitted to the Internet that I have a OCD obsession with “to-do” lists but I do want to share about a new little tool that has just recently increased the efficiency of Inspired Designs! (or is supposed to:)  I recently became the owner of a Berry! My little Blackberry Curve follows me wherever I go and brings with it a constant connection to the Internet, email, …. and unfortunately… Facebook.  I haven’t decided if this new addition is saving time but it sure is fun! The goal is to stay on top of emails, return Facebook messages, etc, so that I can have more time for work/fun when I’m actually at home for once! ha!  We shall see if that actually happens!

ps: I love this little thing! …but we all know that in the magical world of technological happiness… this would definitely be an iphone! ;)

    I just ordered one this weekend! haha I am waiting for it to arrive in the mail. :D I decided not to get internet access on mine (yet) because we are trying to save money to buy a home right now. But once we are in a home I will probably get the internet access. :D I am also the type of person who makes 5 page lists divided up by names for packing. And I bring it with me to make sure I bring everything home! I always have lists around my house and I also often write something down, JUST so I can cross it off! hehe Have fun with your blackberry, I’m looking forward to getting mine!
