Raise your hand if you had a mini pregnant melt down yesterday, brought on by crazy hormones and panic at reaching your “Scary Week” (you know… the week in your pregnancy which has been a deadline in your mind the whole time… the week that feels so close to the end it’s scary… the week that things need to start getting done). Anyone? Just me then?
Yes, I had a little panic yesterday thinking of everything that still needs to get done. Luckily I have a super sweet partner in this thing called parenting that reminded me we don’t really have to do anything. We have everything this little boy needs… and the things we still should do, we can tackle one at a time. So The List was born.
Today I am thankful for lists. Any Type-A girl knows a list is a best friend. It’s more comforting than a glass of wine (as long as things are getting crossed off it) and more productive than crying on the stairs. It organizes a pregnant brain that used to be so organized and now has troubles multitasking. It shows that even though there is still a lot to be done, in little chunks, it’s doable. And it gets us motivated to get stuff done.
So today, I am thankful for lists. What makes you say thanks today?
