Make a Check List in Word 2007
It looks like the rest of my summer is going to be a mad dash to the first day of school. I just finished my graduate classes, and after 8 months of constant neck, shoulder, and foot pain. . . all on my right side, the doctor is telling me that I MUST have surgery on my foot before I go back to work. I've tried every cure I could think of from doctors, chiropractors, and massage therapists all to no avail. The consensus is that my back and neck will not be getting any better until the problems in my right foot are fixed.
All of that would be well and good except that my husband and I have a cruise booked for August 4 -9. Which means I will return from the Western Carribean on Thursday morning, and on Friday morning, I will be under the knife. After surgery I can expect to be off work anywhere from 2-3 weeks which means I will miss all my inservice days and possibly even the first week of school.
So now, I am in a mad dash to prepare for my first ever cruise, get my lesson plans for the first month of school set in stone, and set up my classroom. In reality, I have about 8 days to do this because some of my days in the next two weeks will be taken up with pre-op appointments.
So what I am I doing wasting my time with a blog entry?? Well I just learned how to do something I think is cool. I learned how to make a check-list on Word 2007. All of you computer geeks out there probably already know how to do this, but I thought I'd share it in case in of you are like me. . . sometimes a little bit technologically challenged.
How to make a check list in Word 2007

8. Make your To-Do List!
Last year, before school, I made a detailed list of every single thing I did in the two weeks leading up to the beginning of school. I saved that list and made this year's to-do list from it. If you'd like to just download mine, you can edit it to fit your needs.
I also used this feature to make Student Supply lists to hand out during Orientation.
