Lists and Lists of Lists

Julia is a list person. I am glad that over 25 years ago, I made it onto her list, so now she can list for me. I am not a list person. I can be, but it is not my strength. There is a corner in the dining room which is her "dashboard" or "control center" that holds the storehouse of lists. Without these lists, we would be lost. With all the planning for the Africa trip, these lists become the map of making sure everything gets done. My job is to execute items off the list, and continually ask "is there anything I can do to help?" Julia always has an immediate item on her mind because of her frequent trips to the control center, and calls out the next item from the list. It sounds a little like longshoreman calling out for the next crate to be removed from the ship that is being unloaded. Well, we couldn't make it without the lists, but I have to admit I am looking forward to being on the plane, so we can finally cross that off the list. -->The List-->


  1. I love lists. I just forget where I've put them. You're on our prayer list!

  2. Sorry, didn't realize kid 2 was signed in... That previous comment was by me...
