Dirt: I am lazy and need a list

I live and die by lists. Literally. Work, home, grocery store, etc., if there is no list, the rate of completion dips drastically.

This has  nothing to do with lists...I just miss summer.

I have stopped making lists at home for some reason. Funny, how sometimes we will get too comfortable with things and quit doing them. Lists are that thing for me. I make them at work, but not at home. Now, I wander around like a blind person, wondering what I am supposed to be doing.

So, in 2014 the first thing on my official list is...make lists.

Ironic, I know.
