  1. Hats off to you. So organised. I fly by the seat of my pants ;-)

    1. Hey Lynette, I like to be organised … when I do fly by the seat of my pants
      I get very stressed as I am always worried that I am going to miss something.
      We each have our own style and need to work with that otherwise it will
      cause us more stress ~ so you need to do what works for you!

  2. Awesome commitment. Well done.
