Downsizing 102: Wild mood swing edition

The title is a bit of a misnomer, because I'm actually not experiencing wild swings in my own temperament, and neither is my sweetheart.

What I find is that there are days when I look around and feel like we are SO ON TOP OF THINGS! YAY!

And they are usually followed shortly by days when I look around and think THERE IS SO MUCH STUFF TO DO AND TO TAKE CARE OF! GAH!

This is where the existence of lists, even incomplete ones, comes in handy. Because lists of things to do (with the occasional stuff getting crossed off, of course) give you the illusion that you have things under control. And with a detailed enough list, that might, in fact, be the case, only the pressure of producing one, inclusive detailed-enough list seems rather daunting, because WHAT IF I FORGET SOMETHING?

Chillax, I hear you say, if you forget something, you just add it to the list.

But, but . . . the list is in ORDER. Either of importance or timing or sorted by room or category!

Dude, I hear you say, you're not being graded on your list-making skills. The important thing is taking care of stuff, not having the perfect list.

Oh. I, uh, guess you're right about that. I feel much better now that we've had this talk.

*heads off to work on another list, and to paint some closet doors*
