I made three to-do lists today. One on my desk, one in my day planner (an oxymoron when you're me!) and one in my car. I'm a big fan of random lists on left in many places.
How many things did I get to cross off? None.
I'm a compulsive list maker, and I'm excellent at writing things down.
I'm terrible at doing what I've listed.
I can remember the dry cleaners once in a while (thank you, pink receipt) and the library books floating around my car eventually make it back (this week I owe $ for late books).
The lists I always forget are the lists of items I want to bring to school to add to my students' schema. These lists reflect what we're reading and learning about, and I've had some unusual items listed lately.
Yesterday's list, which I left on my desk, included the following:
- piece of tree branch showing rings
- Life Magazine - moon landing
- Natalie Merchant CD
