No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

Why Keep a List

"Words are small shapes in the gorgeous chaos of the world. But they are shapes, they bring the world into focus, they corral ideas, they hone thoughts, they paint watercolors of perceptions." Diane Ackerman

Since I have been going to the library regularly starting in 2011, I had begun to keep a list of what I have read in the front of the book. In the back, I keep a list of what I want to read.

By now, you would think I would carry my "library book" with me whenever I go to the library. Then I can check my list of what I have read.

When I began to read "Alex Cross's Trial," I had the feeling I had read this one before. I am down to the last five pages, I decided to check my "have read" list. Sure enough, during the month of April, there was the title to the book and how long it took me to read it. Oh well, the book was good the second time around and took me the same amount of time to read it as well.

I do have my daily to do list only I haven't followed it for days; so much for that list.

My PDA has become my hard cover date book. As long as I don't lose it, I never have to worry about it crashing or accidentally deleting an entry. I don't have to worry about someone hacking into it for my personal information.

When I think of it I have the following calendars:

The calendar on the dining room wall.
My hard copy calendar which goes with me everywhere.
The calendar on my cell phone.
The calendar in my Microsoft Outlook.
My calendar on my Yahoo News Page.

I still don't feel comfortable that all of my information is on each of the calendars. I have days where I have to go to each one and check all the entries. Could I be OCD about this? Hmmmm, I wonder . . .

"I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again." - William Penn, English entrepreneur and philosopher
