When I'm facing a big task, I tend to get into making lists. In preparation for the move, I had written out a list of "manageable" tasks, listed by room, on a legal-sized piece of paper. Somewhere along the line, this list got tacked up in the kitchen. Today, I noticed several of our moving helpers taking a glance at the list, and started to worry about whether I'd written anything I wouldn't want family looking at. So when I saw that my brother-in-law seemed to be reading the entire list line by line, I got up to tear it off the wall.
"I have to make sure I didn't write anything embarrassing on that," I said, totally giving myself away.
He pointed at an item listed under "Bedroom". "You mean like 'Pack goodies'?"
Um, yeah. Like that.
