Makin' a list...checking it twice

I like lists.

I like organized, color coded lists.

I like lists that really are spreadsheets.

They make me happy.

But my "Must have completed before Brody arrives" list is stressing me out. Big time. Especially because every time I go to cross something off of it we add a few more things.


Today we went to the grocery store. Obviously I needed groceries but I also needed a few more things that were Brody related like a seat protector to put in my car underneath the car seat base so it doesn't tear the seat up. Stuff like that. And then we saw these sparkly sticks that I wanted to get last year for our tree but I waited to long and everyone was sold out. So I loaded up.

We get home and unload the car, put B down for his nap and Chris says he's off to the attic to bring the tree down. Okay, great, I can cross "Get the tree out of the attic and set up" off my list.

A few minutes later he walks into the room and says "Please don't cry." Uh-oh. I should add that he said that because I cried no less than 3 times in the middle of Wal-Mart over some really dumb things, like wrapping paper. It's just that kind of day.

Apparently, we'd both forgotten that we threw our tree out last year. It was falling apart and it was really too small for our ceiling height so we tossed it. Opps.

So now I get to add "Go buy another Christmas tree" to the list.

I have a feeling that 2 1/2 weeks is just not going to be enough time to get everything done!
