    Amen, sister! LOL! I am in a similar situation this week. I've got a lot on the list. I'm getting that procedure done on my leg next week so I want to get through the list here, especially the Christmas prep, as much as possible. The less that I carry over to next week, the less stress I will feel during the recovery time.

    I haven't yet seen an uptick in activity but I can feel it coming. I interviewed yesterday at Target for a seasonal position and if I get the job then my life will become considerably more busy since I will then be working, a graduate student, and a mom of three with two needy boys. haha We'll see how that all pans out. I will definitely have to become more strict on my schoolwork and my study days will have to be designated and untouchable. My planner will be my best friend. I haven't even touched it in a while I realized this morning, so it may be time to bring it back out.

    Appointments: (Eli early release all week because of conferences)
    [X] Eli P/T Conference (Mon)
    [X] Dermatology (Tue)
    [X] Veterans Day Assembly at DS's school (Fri)

    School:
    [X] Mentor Call (Tue)
    [X] Continue working on class (try to finish up content)
    [ ] Work on task
    [ ] Fingerprints
    [ ] Work on resume

    House:
    [ ] Finish clearing top of dresser
    [X] Organize Eli's bookshelf

    Fun:
    [X] Sephora with friend
    [ ] Williams Sonoma
    [X] Read

    Good luck with the position Jess. It will be a little tougher for you for a while but I am sure that you will manage.
    Mary, wish I was a bit closer so so that I could give you a hand next week. An Australian friend of mine gets a knee replacement next week and we are all on a roster to go and sit with her and help with what she needs.

    HGP the Kitchen is this week for me since I skipped over it so I could complete the house spruce up projects. Have started but need to pay attention to curtains, windows and drawers. I have a couple of other tweaks too.

    Tuesday is my volunteer day in GF's classroom and we will meet with another friend for dinner out.

    Wednesday-Friday will be Christmas prep be it Christmas cards, or wrapping gifts.

    I spent a rainy Sunday afternoon writing my cards. Feels nice to have that done.

    I have those weeks too which can be a nice change.
    Thanks! I asked my husband to go with me for moral support. My dds will be home to help out when I get back. My mom will stop by the next day for a visit. I'm just not sure what to expect so I prefer to over plan at this point.

    Nobody ever gets in bother by over planning. I think you are wise to plan for every eventuality and be ahead of the game.
