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
- 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!
