I really did not think I'd be prone to the Holiday stress that causes so much havoc in December. I have no nasty inlaws to deal with or deep hidden family secrets to hide and navigate. All my Holiday shopping is essentially complete. But here I sit on the Third of December completely stressed out! It so totally feels so un-Christmassy, I think we should start December again.
I have got to do so many little things in December that I run the risk of forgetting any number of things (Due to that sort of benign neglect that can get one in trouble) or doing things only half way.
So I am going to make a bit of a list (Just for me) to try to help me stay on task.
Pay Car Insurance by December 16th.
Pack items I find I am not using in car.
Take items to House. Get things like Gift wrap and a few items I wish I had (Sleeping bag.)
While at home, arrange for a House sitterperson. (Possibly call Happy at Home pet sitter and see if she will sit without a pet, she was quite good with Teulu).
Lawn care man and maintanence set up Call TWC and see if my cable can be put on "Vacation status" at the house. Cancel Cabel and Inet for here.
Get a Mail box at Mailboxes etc. FOrward mail appropriately.
FInish filling out anf faxing stuff for new contract.
Continue training at the gym and at home.
Clean apartment and have it inspected by Dec 21st
Ask Nurse Mgr if I can have 4 hours off so I can get home at a logical time on Dec 24th.
Ask someone to fill a reco out for me.
See Physician at home. (Must call pronto for an appointment)
Pay physician what I owe
Pay Duke Hospital (FInd out what I owe).
Get Duke to mail a W2 to my New Mexico Address. Get CCTC to do the same…
Deal with vaccinations and titres. (started to do this, will take an eon apparently)
Have Vet fax Teulu's Vax records to Kennel in Penna. -get drug screen done- Register for Resolution run…
Deal with running shoe concerns…(ie just buy a new pair of shoes darn it….)
PLan one Holiday dinner for family so Mom doesn't have to cook every day.
The scary thing is that I feel that even with this list I may be forgetting things!
