check lists

I do well with lists. However I hate making them. I think I feel this pressure to complete something if I actually put it on a piece of paper. Needless to say, I don't keep pen and paper readily available... There are currently many things to accomplish though. For example, I now prefer to keep the door to the guest room closed out of fear that the unpacked boxes lurking behind the door will come after me, taunting me with reminders of what is still to be done. There are also the thank you notes to write. I've got some of them done, and have seriously contemplated TYPING a generic one to send out but I know the wrath of my mother would make me forever regret it (don't worry mom, I love you for it and in the years to come I will thank you for it. Until then...). And finally, there is the daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning.... laundry, dishes, bathrooms... I miss the simplicity of living in a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment. Took just an hour to clean everything, and once it was done, it stayed done for a few days. However, I will greatly take my new surroundings over the old for they bring many more added blessings (like free rent!).

On another note, I'm on a search for the worlds best (and easiest) crock pot recipes. I recently tried a chicken one. As for cooking the chicken, it couldn't have been cooked more perfectly. However the flavor was pretty much garlic, garlic, and more garlic. I should have known considering the recipe called for TWO heads of garlic. If anything it removed the risk of any bad omens. Or whatever it is that garlic keeps away. Anyway, any good, cheap, and easy crock pot recipes out there, send them my way. I (and my husband) would be grateful.

Well. There is some ironing to be done... why does the dry cleaners have to be so expensive? I could possibly be in the wrong line of careers...........

(Just for your entertainment, as I type this my husband is playing lullabies on the keyboard?????.)
