I love making lists. It's what I do. Or did, more accurately, since there has been nothing to really list for the last four months. I have tried listing the stuff in my head that I need to do in a day, but it's just not the same as writing the list down and crossing items off of that list. And so, while waiting in the teacher's lounge at Shawn's school, I triumpantly and maybe a little smugly took out my little notebook -- a gift from Teri, depicting a girl and the quote 'She packed up her potential and all she had learned, grabbed a cute pair of shoes, and headed out to change a few things' -- borrowed a pencil and wrote the following:
Minneapolis: (I'll be there for a week before heading to International Falls)
Watch LOST finale
Open new bank account / figure out misc erroneous charges on debit card
Target -- t-shirts and swimsuit
Meet renters, visit storage in basement
Activate cell phone and car insurance
Research a new backpack
Reactivate Netflix, send to mom and dad's
Mail - change address. But to where?
Get motorcycle license
Refresh Spanish - lessons?
Sell old backpack, buy new one
Research around-the-world ticket
Run/bike/swim - Murphy - beach
Cash out 401k?
Road trip plans...North Carolina? or fly?
Oh yes I did put 'watch LOST finale, Chipotle and Punch Pizza' on my Minneapolis list, so if anybody wants to join for any or all of those three activities, let me know.
