A List

I've been doing lots of journaling the last two weeks and it has been very liberating. Even if I write one word that whole day I feel great getting it down on paper. I use to journal as a teenager, I believe I had three journals by the time I left to college. I am on the man hunt to find them and to go back as me during my teens. It would be interesting to see how much I have grown since then plus I want to remember all my adventures :).

Part of my assignments for my Yes! class is to make lists, positive and happy lists. When I read I had to do this I was in heaven. I love lists. I love crossing an item off when I have accomplished it. The other day I was thinking of a list to write and all I could come up with was:

2. yikes i hate laundry
3. more laundry
4. two more loads of laundry
5. almost there with the laundry
6. last load drying
7. OH NO AUSTIN AND CHLOE MADE A MESS.....another load
8. phew....laundry done for today.

haha! I laughed when I read it the next day but hey it was a realistic list and it told a story of my day. So, grab a pencil and some paper (doesn't have to be a journal) and make a list. A happy list, a positive list, a funny list, a goal list or any ol' list. Write the list in crayons, colored pencils, alphabet stickers, or just make the list pretty. When your done hang it somewhere :) I would love for you to share lists if you guys want or you can email me at

Happy Writing,


  1. Oh Leslie. I make so many lists its not even funny (well, yea it is). Ill have to send you some :) About once a week a make a list of all the lists I need to make that week!

  2. i love lists! this is a great post...mainly because i love lists! i love to make lists, cross things out on lists, throw away lists, and make more lists.

  3. My sister accuses me of making lists to keep track of my lists. I love to monitor my progress by crossing things off my to-do lists. In fact, if I happen to do something that's not on my list, I add it just so I can cross it off. Sad, huh???? ;-}
