The List

You may have noticed from some of my recent posts that work has been extremely busy of late. Wait, busy does not even begin to describe what it is that I am managing at the moment. And last week I dropped the ball!

Adding to this chaos in my mind is the reality of everything else that I need to do…

  • Finalise RSVP count for Kai’s birthday party.
  • Double check party venue booked for Saturday.
  • Arrange to have Kai’s gift collected tomorrow.
  • Remember to BAKE the CAR cake on Friday (never mind that I can’t bake)!
  • Confirm Faith’s pick up time for today, and brace for chaos!
  • Check if leaking batteries damaged the FM System.
  • Schedule audiology appointment for Kai and dad.
  • Remember to thank everyone who donated clothes to Uncle.
  • Take the library books in – it is already two weeks late!
  • Follow up on Kai’s spectacles.
  • Don’t forget to organise birthday presents for Dad and Uncle.
  • Remember Logan’s birthday present for Saturday.
  • Don’t forget Lee’s birthday on Saturday.
  • Don’t forget E’s birthday present on Sunday.
  • Remember swimming lessons start next week.
  • Check availability for Hear2Day meeting.
  • Finalise Monthly Featured Blog
  • Update Decibels of Love Facebook Page.
  • Start with the OV website!

What else? I know I’m missing a few things on this list…my list of things that I still need to get to this week!

Can you pick up that I am all over the place at the moment?

    Good luck getting through that list. Having a list is sometimes the first step to making sure you don’t forget anything.

    Some days I don’t even get to tick off one item on my to do list, which only makes the next day’s list even longer.

      Melanie, that the thing with “the list” it tends to get longer, not shorter! But somehow we manage to get it all done 🙂

      Thanks Marion! I will definitely let you know if you can help with any items. I’ve accomplished the gift collection, have Faith, and …need to consult my list again to remember the rest! Yikes!

    I feel you. After all this take some time out for a breather. Force the body to rest if the mind won’t.
