I’m whittling it down, slowly but surely. I know. You might ask ” WHY do you make these lists? They only set you up to fail.” No no NO! That’s NOT the point. Lists keep me moving. They keep me organized. I have goals once my list is made. It feels good to mark off those items ONE at a TIME!! I love it! And it’s legal to add things that you did but weren’t on the list…maybe NOTLBD/not on the list but done! See? I’m creative too?! *snort*
And besides, I am a lifelonglister. Since high school. It carried on through marriage, motherhood (HOW could anyone possibly raise children w/o lists I ask you??!!!), and then I became rather famous when I worked at our local high school as a satellite class facilitator and cheerleader coach with my lists. My cheerleaders used to make horrible fun of their ancient teacher because lists covered her desk. They thought that was hysterical! I’ve had some of those girls come to me in their new adulthood/motherhood and say, “Guess what? I make lists now too. I totally get it!” Gave me a good laugh and I’m relieved that the one thing they learned from me was to make lists. I can think of worse things….
So for today:
Put icing on cakes
Imprint sides of cakes w/square cutter so as to resemble stones/bricks..yes it can be done. I’ve already done 8countemTowers.
Put grass around castle using special grass icing tip thing. Easier than it sounds
Add 4 towers/turrets on base…ooops, and add trim around tops. About forgot that!
Gather up BOWSER (YESSSSSS! HE WAS IN THE MAIL THIS AM!!!!!!!), candles, Mario and gang, and four small towers
Assemble on site for birthday boy’s approval. I just pray he approves! This kid knows EXACTLY what he wants and that’s it. None of the “Oh just put a clown on top will be fine” orders from this little guy!
Start a brand new FRESH list for tomorrow!!! 😀
For after all, “Tomorrow is another day.”
