Oh the places you will go

I like...ahem...am slightly obsessed with making lists. When I am stressed I will make a list of everything I need to accomplish and will catagorize everything. It tends to relieve some stress...well depending on the length of the list that is. I will also mix in some easy-to-accomplish things to the list as well so I can have some things crossed off.
Here are a few ongoing lists (that are continuously changing) that I like to add to:

Here is a picture I took of my street because the sky looks amazing ( I did nothing to the color of this photo, there wasn't even a filter). Last night there were 5 tornados that touched ground in the surrounding areas. It has been raining ever since.
