Part 6 in the Cori’s Planner Pieces series

And so we come to it. The proof that I am insane!

Originally mentioned in my Jotters piece <insert link>, The Master To Do List (TMTDL) is a master list of odds and ends off the To Do lists. It was started in 2008/2009. Yes, that’s right, there are items on my To Do list from the past 5-6 years.

When I finish a Jotter, I add anything I haven’t done to TMTDL. I started this file on a modified version of Microsoft Word, so the numbering doesn’t change on me when I add and delete tasks. Currently, the starting  number is 5 and the ending number is 564. Now that doesn’t mean there are 559 items on this list; there are 162 items waiting to be crossed off. (Yes, I did count them for this blog post.)

Some of the are notes to myself about things I may need to remember at some point. Or I may need to create a Notes to Remember page. (I’ll knit on this and get back with you.) As I eventually complete items on TMTDL, they do get crossed off and their assigned number is retired.

When a Jotter is ready to be added to TMTDL, the crossed off items on the current version are deleted and the new ones are added with fresh numbers.

I’m the only person I know who does this. Hmm….maybe I’ll start a trend. (Or I’m part of a bigger group and don’t know it. Like with Bullet Journaling.)

Here are some pictures! I blocked out sensitive information with my thumb.The Master To Do List (1) The Master To Do List (2) The Master To Do List (3) The Master To Do List (4)

I’m getting ready to go through a completed jotter, so these pictures will be obsolete by tomorrow!

I’ve been posting a lot of book reviews lately and little else, but there is a reason for that. I’m about six-seven months behind in posting about all the books I’ve been reading. Also, with moving, I’ve been slow about posting my non-book review posts. I’m still getting ideas, and writing stuff out. Just not posting it.

I’m one-two more posts away from being done with Book Reviews from 2013! Then it’s on to the 30-40 something books so far from 2014.

Another blog feature I’m toying with is creating a subject list on its own page for articles and books I’ve read on specific subjects over the years. The organization, formatting, and linking is throwing me a little, but once I get a rough version of what I want to do, I’m going to ask those more tech savvy than  myself for their thoughts on the matter.

Stay tuned for new features! And thank you for reading!

Hi to everyone who checks this blog out occasionally. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything. It was never my intent to abandon my blog. I’m currently working on my Master’s Degree and that has pretty much taken over my life. I’m still reading, writing reviews, etc. I just haven’t had time to post anything. But I DO intend to start back up soon!

Thank you to everyone who checks this blog out! I hope you find something interesting here.

Wow, I didn’t realize how long it had been since I had updated. For anyone who is following this blog or just stumbles across it, sorry that it has looked abandoned.

Long-story short, a week after my last posting, there was a major life upset and it threw me for a loop. I’m now trying to get back into posting.
