    I agree! Mild panic for sure. I have no idea what to get DH, I have been writing down ideas for the kids in my phone as I think about them or they see something when we are out. I had ordered DD a Harry Potter advent calendar back in August that finally shipped...to our old address. :oops: I don't know if the post office will forward a package and i'm thinking I should have received it by now. I may have just lost that money. There is no tracking on it through the company either. I did change the address in my account when we moved thinking that would change the shipping, but it didn't. Ugh! I just hope that it gets forwarded, I don't think anyone is even living in our old house yet.

    Appointments:
    [X] Chiropractor (Mon)
    [X] PT (Tue)
    [X] Board meeting (Wed)
    [X] Curriculum Fair (Wed)
    [X] PT (Thu)
    [X] Commissary Focus Group (Thu)

    School:

    [X] Preassessment (Fri)
    [X] Objective assessment
    [X] Study schedule for math praxis

    I thought the post office forwarded mail up to a year after moving. I hope it comes soon.

    I haven't hit panic mode yet but I think it is because so much other stuff is going on around here. Today marked our last fall college tour. I feel like I can start focusing in on Thanksgiving. I think the panic will kick in after Thanksgiving when I realize that I have less than a month before Christmas. I'm keeping the list light this week with the idea of getting the physical stuff done by Tuesday night. I will do reading/computer work later in the week while recovering.
    • Review calendar for upcoming week. Done
    • Plan Menu for next week. Done
    • Clean Bathrooms. Done
    • Pay bills. Done
    • HHP
    • Review CCP
    • Holiday Self-Care Plan (HSCP)
    • Reading plan
    • FlyLady: Bathrooms Done
      • Dust top of fan.
      • Clean Windows.
      • Wipe down wall and door jambs.
    New this Week:
    • Write a note to school on Sunday night. Done
    • Place pins on the map. Done
    • Read next section of Austen book.
    • Read through magazines.

    It is scheduled for Wednesday. It is outpatient so I will be home in the afternoon. My mom will stop by to visit on Thursday. Meals are scheduled and the family can get them from the freezer the night before.

    I have a hard time sitting down in general but planning helps me to sit still for a while. I've made a list of lists to work on and binders to organize while sitting. That should help me not to get too restless. :D

    You are so organised. Maybe time to write out your Christmas cards, research your word for 2020, think about goals for next year? I am sure that your recovery will be a good one.

    Katrina… word for 2020, goals for next year… just wrote these down yesterday in MY zen, relaxation calendar that I make for myself. :) Great minds think alike.

    Next weekend I have 4 days (have osteo appointment Friday and Monday hospital appointments), but they shouldn't take long... so I will try to make progress in lots of areas.
    • Put up Christmas tree
    • Bake some desserts
    • Regular housechores
    • Finalize Christmas cards
    • Wrap
    • Run errands
    … and all of thes take lots of time! but if I do it then I will be ahead of the game.

    That is my aim at the moment Lucie. Get anything I can done now so that I can relax a little closer to Christmas. I want to be able to enjoy what I have worked so hard for all year.

    Great ideas there! I have gotten a lot of the things done off the list that I wanted to do up to this point. I plan to use Thursday and Friday as my reading and list making days. My unread magazines and books are waiting. When I need a break from that, I've got my list of lists. LOL!

    I have just bagged all the gifts in preparation for tomorrows wrapping party at my house. I am going to have to find a different way of storing the gifts throughout the year because what I am doing now is not working as well as it can be.
    Will give it some thought over the next few weeks and see what I can come up with.

    How are you storing gifts bought through out the year now?

    I'm so glad that I prepped the way that I did. I got to all the more strenuous jobs on Monday and Tuesday. Things were rougher than I expected. I am taking things slow and steady. On the bright side, I am feeling better than I did 24 hours ago. :D

    I have one box for each person for gifts and stocking fillers and I do try and make a note of what I have. But as the boxes get full I just store stuff where I can and then I forget who it is for or I double up/forget something. Just need to rethink this.

    Oh boy, do I understand that. Maybe you could put the initials of the gift recipient on the item after you buy it?

    I have extra large plastic shopping bags that are given out at the stores when you buy tons of stuff. I save them from year to year to hold the gifts. I put names on those bags so that all gifts for that person are in that bag. I do the same thing for stocking stuffers. That has helped.

    My problem is remembering that "great" hiding spot for the bought items once the box is filled. :rolleyes: I found a bunch of stuff in January when I was decluttering the basement. I store the unwrapped gifts there up until mid November. Then I start keeping them in my bedroom so I can keep better track of things. Currently, I am missing a tablecloth that I "hid" in one of those "great" spots that I can't even find. :( I'm beginning to rethink this whole hiding thing.

    I have an app on my phone called Gift List (it's free) and when I start buying things I annotate in there where I hid them so I don't forget. haha I stash little items all over the place sometimes in our bedroom.

    I am extremely lucky as I have a huge closet with shelves in my bedroom to store the items and any overflow goes into my empty spare room. At the moment this room is full of stockings and wrapped gifts, Christmas Central.

    Anyway, I either need bigger boxes so that I can contain everything without the need to store elsewhere, buy less ;), or just get my act together. A project for the new year.

    That's a good idea! I keep a list too but hadn't thought of putting the exact location of the hidden items.
