That's how I feel sometimes when writing a list, that I want to tick off writing a list as my first chore!

richella- Im usually pretty good at getting stuff done, I have been really slacking lately..

 

I have to work on packing and cleaning today. Im hoping to pack everything but whats coming in the van with us so we don't have to worry about packing once DH gets here. Trust me, its easier for me to do it alone.
