Megan Anderson's #30List Week 2

This month I’m participating in 30 Days of Lists, and I’m going to be sharing my weekly lists with you each Tuesday! If you want to see my lists as they happen, follow me on Instagram @Megan_NerdNest. You’ll also be able to find those Instagrams on my Twitter and Jake’s and my Flickr.

Welcome to the second week of lists for the March 2013 edition of #30Lists! Instead of making a mini book for my lists as I have done in the past, I’m including my lists as weekly inserts in my Project Life. I used a similar format for all of my base pages, using Ultra Pro 9 Pocket Page Protectors, which, if you’re wondering, do not fit Project Life cards (I trimmed the ones I’m using down a bit).

List 4: On an average day I…

  • push snooze too many times
  • drink coffee
  • wear pajamas
  • put my hair up
  • snuggle with Jonas
  • learn with Eliza
  • play with toys
  • read a lot
  • make out a little
  • blog
  • work
  • yoga

Note on how I do lists: I just write them. I don’t really think ahead, and I fill up whatever space I’ve got, spelling errors and all. I love doing this project in such a free way, and it also makes it interesting: the lists really reflect what I’m thinking RIGHT THEN. I could re-do these every month and they’d be at least a little (maybe a lot) different.

List 5: I would like to do by the end of this month

  • Release my self-paced workshop
  • Finish the complete works of Shakespeare
  • Finish writing 3/4 of my current novel draft
  • Rock the socks off of blog readers
  • Pipe bookshelf

Obviously my One Little Word is playing a big role here. Also, I’m including a photo of me in each week’s list. This one is in my new hand screen printed shirt. I’m proud of it, guys. Can’t wait to get my own set-up!

I put my title (using Amy Tangerine Thickers) on the outside of the page protector.

List 7: What’s in my (diaper) bag

  • KCK One diapers
  • Diaper inserts (cotton and microfiber)
  • Pens, post-its, and crayons
  • baby washcloths
  • plastic grocery sacks
  • change of clothes for Jonas
  • Composition notebooks
  • board books
  • whatever I’m reading

I don’t carry a purse, so if I carry stuff with me it’s in my pockets (phone + wallet) or the diaper bag. (Or, sometimes, the camera bag.) Even though we haven’t been using cloth diapers at home the past couple weeks (I need to repair the velcro on some of ours), the diaper bag is still packed with our cloth stuff.

List 8: Comfort food

  • Mac & cheese
  • tea
  • coffee
  • chicken and noodles
  • chicken tikka masala
  • chocolate anything
  • pizza
  • Po’s noodles
  • Fresh bread

Drinks totally count. Because when I need comfort, I want a warm beverage (can’t not think of Sheldon).

List 9: On my “oughta do” list

  • dishes
  • laundry

  • run
  • WRITE write WRITE
  • vacuum / shampoo carpets
  • meal plan
  • buy E’s soccer stuff
  • pay bills

Obviously cleaning isn’t high on my priority list. This list could also be titled: “stuff I’m putting off”.
