I Think I Need A Spreadsheet....................................

ˈspredˌSHēt/

verb

My husband is an engineer--enough said if you have a friend, spouse, etc that is also an engineer!  He makes a spread sheet for everything!  and I do mean everything!!

I must say it is one way to keep track of what's going on--but I always give him a hard time about his 'spread sheets'--

he makes a spread sheet for
  •  his tool collection; 
  • the vinyls we have; 
  • songs he likes; 
  • trips we have taken; 
  • wines in stock; 
  • tax receipts 
  • expenses
  • you name it

well, now I'm thinking I need to make a spread sheet for all these projects that are piling up on my table!

Oh, I don't need one to add or subtract numbers I just need one to help me REMEMBER what projects I'm working on or have signed up to do--I need a visual listing!!

Let's see:  there are several quilt projects ++++ knitting projects--each with a beginning and ending date.  Do I have the fabric I need?  Or the yarns to use?  All that could go on a spread sheet.  

 one problem----I don't know if I want to say to the engineer husband- that I'm making a spread sheet-why you ask?

He just might take over MY spread sheet!
