I'm a chronic list-maker. I make lists of things to do, mainly, but sometimes it's other things: things to pack, things to finish, things to remember.
I just made a list of things to pack for an upcoming trip. My husband looked at it and said, "You know what you're going to take. Why write it down?"
I pointed out that by making the list, I realized I was probaby overpacking for a 3 day trip. Seeing the items on the list made that clear to me.
"Why not just pack then realize you've got too much?"
I explained that packing is a headache and should be done once or twice at the most.
He just smiled and said, "Whatever."
Yep. Venus. Mars. We're from there.
