I started a To-Do list last week when I realized that I was trying to remember far more details than my brain is allowing me these days. Once the list reached two columns, I knew I was in trouble.
I guess it really isn't too horrible though. I have kept it to the immediate things. I have to talk to my daughter's orthopedist because he has finally decided we have reached that window when she needs to have her leg operation. I have to talk to the school counselor for my son's SPED meeting. I have several birthdays this month, including my daughter who turns the grand age of 11. I did my freak-out about it last year--she's been a whole year in double digits and I have survived.
Not sure if I will survive the party at Chuck E. Cheese next weekend though. I think finishing up my will is on that list too.
Then of course there is the holiday fervor--shopping is almost done. Tree goes up this weekend. The signing and picture-stuffing of cards will be finished over this week. I have gifts to wrap and some to ship.
All in all, the list is manageable--as long as I don't put my regular Life duties such as work, chores, knitting and reading on there. Then I would probably realize I have 30 hours of stuff to put in my 24 hour days. But, I figure if the government can decide to change my sleep time by an hour either direction twice a year, I can decide to lengthen each day by a few hours to get everything done.
