Don't Laugh At Me...

Seriously.... Don't laugh at me, but I am a list maker. 

I make lists for everything. Shopping, craft projects, to-do lists, etc.   
Mister Studly is always making fun of my for making lists. Especially when we go out of town and I make up an extremely detailed packing list. 
I just freak out that I'm going to forget something! 

Anyways, I have a recurring list and that's my chore list. I have it on my computer and I print it out daily and cross things off as I go. 
But the other day, I ran out of ink.

So what's a poor list-making girl to do???

I'll tell you....

I made a master chore list, printed it out on photo paper at Walmart, framed it, hung it on a wall by my laundry room and now I use it like a dry erase board. 

Creative?? or Insane?? 
You be the judge....

And yes... call me crazy but there are a few things on this list that should be done automatically like say.... brush teeth or shower, but if it's not on the list, it just might not get done around here. 

I NEED my list (I depend on it) to be sure that everyone in the family is well taken care of.
 And hygiene is very important to me. 
That's why it's at the top of the list. 
(notice exercise is near the bottom)

Anyways.... it works perfectly for me and I love that it's just like a dry erase board and I can wipe it off and start over the next day. No more running out of ink for me! 

Unless I run out of dry erase markers of course.

I have one too! But mine is just a flimsy piece of paper taped to the wall. This is a much better idea.
