Self portraits challenge 4

I'm an Aries girl and I don't do very well with keeping to lists. Unfortunately life has forced me to keep lists and a resolution is to stick to my lists. I am one of those people that flies from one thing to another, almost haphazardly. Time and energy is wasted. I need to slow down and concentrate on completing the task at hand. Follow the list and eventually everything will get done. Right?
More resolutions here.

Oh oh oh!!! I am right there with you, I am an aries too and keeping a list is not quite my thing... I try and try. I will have to try harder ;)

Oh man, I LIVE by lists. I found I had to do it for work, and now my computer screen looks a lot like your face. Except not as pretty. And it's not wearing a cute little stripey jumper and dotty scarf. You just look so cute!!!I hope you're not going to walk around the streets like that PG.

Love this photo! I have sticky notes all over the place because try as I might, I forget so many things I must or should do without these little reminders.

JC said...

I'm the exact same way, I can't stick to a task to save my life. I'm an Aries too - I guess I didn't know that that was one of our traits.

Happy belated birthday to your mom! Did you tell her that she shares a birthday with Richard Dean Anderson?

Hi Georgia! It is so hard but I have to make myself do it or else I am to scattered all over.

Rose-See, Jos swears by them and starting this new venture, I have to do it. Lists are good when you think of something that has to be done but you can't attend to it at the present. Thanks Rose!It's about 20 F here and I just had to wear that stripey dress. I love it to bits. And I had a weird feeling the rest of the day that I still had a sticky on me some where.

Mary- I know the stickies, I have to control them. What happens is I write things on stickies then I tranfer to a notepad. I get even more overwhelmed with a million stickies.

jc-I'm afraid so my aries friend. It's has to do with our spirit of being impulsive and lists tie us down man. I found a list when I was a teen and it said "I have to get organized". It was painful for me then.
And thanks for the bday wishes for mum. She was crying when I called and cutting roses. Only my mom.Mmmm...Macgyver. After Zelma and Patty I can't look at him in the same way.

Hey ya neil-I'm a funny girl. Sometimes I write notes on my hands.

Stepping Over the Junk said...

I just bought a BUNDLE of post its at Costco. I LOVE them (as do my kids and I often leave the house with them stuck to my butt). I love your hair style, it is really cute!!! I am thinking of doing something different with mine but can't decide what

Margaret said...

you are such a hoot!

paintergirl said...

Stepping over-thanks! My haircut was an issue in an old post. It did not come out how I wanted. and now it's growing, so I do this swoop of my bangs. You should get a new haistyle-it will give you a fresh perspective.

Margaret-If stress and sleep deprivation didn't rob me of my humor, I'd be a stand up act.

Irene said...

OH MY GOD. this is probably one of the best SPC ever. Love it.

ps: I'm an Aries too.

paintergirl said...

Hey Irene!You are so funny and sweet, thanks. Why am I not surprised you are an aries. You're an aries that wears chucks.

PG: I cannot keep up with the speed of your blogging these days! Holy crap [pardon my French!] :-) I guess I need less time at work and more time here in CyberSpace.....off sick again today. Shite.

Anyway: a quick hello and I LOVE THAT PHOTO! Your hair is gorgeous by the way :-D Lists....my best friend and I take the piss out of ourselves most of the time because we're list fanatics. My life would fall apart if it wasn't for lists....lists lists lists...all over the place; all the time. Things were once so bad that I had lists of lists!!!

paintergirl said...

Lilly-I wish you were here too more often. Your french is pardoned.:)My hair-it really drives me crazy, but thank you very much. I just swish it off to the side. Now I have abook and I write a list for each day like a grown up girl does. How sad.

Lilly said...

That's not sad -- it's cool! And one of the best things about lists is when you can mark things off on the list that you've done! Great satisfaction! Very therapeutic, I find it.
