Lists, lists, and more lists

My life has become swamped in lists.  The end of July will be here quickly and I need to outfit a house! I have lists of budgets - plan A and plan B.   I have lists for each room and a budget for each room.  I have a "need" list.  I have a "want" list.  I have a "someday" list.   Soon I will need a list for medications I will need to take if I don't settle down.  Lol  

I am going to put a self-imposed ban on Pinterest because it's just confusing me with ideas.  I have been looking at furniture and have some basic stuff picked out but I will wait until closer to the end of the month.  (Mainly because I keep changing my mind). And I want to arrange another visit inside the new house to measure things again. 

So if you see a crazed woman running around clutching a fist full of lists, relax it's just me.


  1. It must be difficult when you have to make all the decisions by yourself. I hope that you get the need list done first. A place to eat and prepare food and a place to sleep would be my priority.
    I'm so glad that you've made this big decision of getting your own place.


    I hope that you have fun too furnishing your house.

  2. I think those are the kind of problems I would love to have. It sounds just full of fun. I am so excited for you. You are right it will be here before you know it.

  3. Kim,
    How exciting and terrifying at the same time.
    I, too, am a list maker and if you're like me, you will need a list to take care of your other lists.
    I am truly very, very happy for you!!! You so deserve this.
    I'll put it on the list to send you a hug :)

  4. Moving is stressful but it will be so much fun to create your own nest!

  5. It's going to be excellent! You're going to be great at putting your place together. See, you're already waiting to make decisions to see how your place feels before painting. I've loads of confidence that your place will be fantastic!

  6. As long as you have a list to keep track of your lists! Have fun! Seriously...enjoy!

  7. I'm sure it's stressful but also a little on the exciting side!

  8. Overwhelming, but exciting. Lists are good. It will all be worth it. Just keep smiling...~grin~

  9. Our son is moving this weekend and I'm helping him with his lists....I asked if he even had dishes...yep, plastic ones. A bed? No...A couch?...No...and the list goes on! Have fun with those dreams and I'm excited to see the final projects!

  10. Moving....i know how that is. Been there...just done it. lol Still trying to figure out where to put everything. We have been in our new apt 3 months next week or so and I still have the last load of stuff in my car.

    Tomorrow will be our 1 year anniversary of being here in this city. Wow! Time flies..even when things aren't

    I hope that you have fun choosing new things and that it doesn't stress you too much. :)

    Take care my friend..Janet W

  11. It is going to be fun decorating!
