Highlights

Nothing feels as good as conquering a to-do list.

My 16-item "to-do" list for today is down to 6. I've been a busy girl.

I am always amazed about how much more I get done if I start the day out by writing down what I need to do. There must be something to this.

The irony is that I go through phases where all I do is write lists for everything I need to do, buy, etc. And then I become derailed. Stop writing lists. And mass chaos ensues. I need my neat little boxes, to put check marks in. I need straight lines and guidance. Symmetry pleases me.

So...getting a handle on things, today I endeavored to write a list. A list in black ink. I've highlighted the things that I have accomplished...

mark my day away

Now there are more highlights on my paper than black marks. The world is on its axis once more.
