Make Checklists: Check!

I did it. I made two checklists.

I made one for the pool and I made one for the park.

It took me forever to sit down with a pencil and paper to actually get them started, but this seems to be truth: the hardest part of doing anything is actually to start doing it.

Once I had done them, I had a silly creative idea that maybe I could make them look pretty, too. By including images, I might even be able to trick my boys into helping out!!

While this may be of zero interest to you, I am pretty darn proud of how my checklists turned out, so I am going to share them with you here!!

On my Summer Project Dashboard, I made an entry for the making of checklists. Each week this summer, I want to make one checklist that will make my life, particularly the administration of my family life, easier.

We need a checklist for setting the table before a meal. We need one for going to the skatepark. We need one for getting ready to leave for school. We need one for cleaning the bathroom. I suppose it wouldn’t be a sin to make one which includes all the documents I need to do our taxes, which every single year seems like I am starting over from scratch.

With twelve weeks this summer, I should be able to menopause-proof and child-proof some of the more irritating parts of my daily life by making those checklists.

I am passionate about contentment. This is a challenge, because I am equally passionate about progress. I get up at 4:00AM to chip away at a solution to this monolithic problem: how to make progress on my contentment. Born and raised in the USA, I married a French philosophy teacher in 1999. We have lived in France since 2007. We stayed young and carefree until life threw us two curveballs in the form of little humans one after another in 2015 and 2017 respectively. Now I am a slightly older, slightly more exhausted version of myself, but with mystery stains on my walls and a never-ending pile of laundry.
