Lists, Lists, and more lists...
So, first we started with the boat options list along with a detailed list of the gear and gadgets we wanted to add. Quickly, one list led to another, and I have now a notebook of lists...
Here are some of the lists I'm working on now, but there are lists in my head that are keeping me up at night. (now requiring a bedside notebook, too!)
1. Homeschooling: curriculum, supplies, questions, and to do's
2. Kid Gear/Toys
3. Galley Provisioning
4. Immunization Information for South America
I also find myself asking questions like, "how long will this tube of toothpaste last us?" or, "will I REALLY wear makeup?" Suddenly every mundane part of my daily routine is questioned and analyzed to account for efficiency and space...
Mark and I also worked on lists of things to do before we go, and we each took responsibility for a few of them we can work on right now.
The lists are getting longer and more numerous, causing me to think hard about a binder with tabs to just get it all out of my head! It's getting pretty crowded up there lately.
I'm sure I'll share more specifics about lists, even post a few for reference if any of you are sailing someday!
