Thankful Thursday: Toodledo

Today I’m thankful for productivity… I’m a list-making-fanatic.  I love lists.  I have lists for everything…work, house cleaning, yard work, travel planning, and on-and-on-and-on.  I think lists make me more organized and give me the ability to get more done.  Lists also make me worry less.  If I don’t write something down, I constantly think […]
