Piles, Packing, and Organizing

I’m not really sure where January and February went.  March is already half done and I don’t know where that went either.  I know I’ve been busy with helping one daughter with health issues and the other daughters with different things.  However, I don’t feel like I’ve been able to catch my breath.  Stuff I intended to have done in January I’m just getting to and it is March.
This morning first thing – before my five day headache had faded to manageable – Ken and I were up and out of the house to run errands for gathering things to take to Vicki.  She sends me a list and gives me money – we go get.  One check mark off my todo list.
We come home and I play on the computer – answer emails, play Bookwork, write in my journal, and tackle piles.  Most of my writing is now organized the way I want it.  I still have some piles that I’m not sure how I want to handle but I’ve gone through several pile and have them labeled and put away.  Things are easily identifiable and accessible. Items I will use often are at hand and others are placed further away. 
Next on my list is some computer work which will take a bit and then I’m off to pack my crafting suitcase for my trip.  I’ve got many of those items ready to go in the suitcase it is just a matter of getting the suitcase out and putting them in.  Although there are a couple of things I want to pull from the craft room. 
When I’m done with these things – providing my headache hasn’t screamed back full force – crocheting will round out my day.  Ken is working in the basement.  The basement guys were here and fixed it last weekend so he can work on getting his workroom set up and the guest room set up.
Tomorrow is a whole different day and I’ll have to figure out what I will be doing then.  Probably more organizing and packing but you never know.  If the headache I’ve had for five days continues I may just spend the day in a dark room doing nothing.  I’ve decided the worst thing about a headache is I can’t crochet while I’m home sick.  It hurts too much.

More Lists

It’s the weekend and I’d love to just kick back and relax.  That isn’t going to happen.  I’ve decided to start doing editing on the side.  This weekend is my time to get the paperwork in place that I feel I need.  I’ve a bunch of decisions to make like naming my company and how I want my stuff to look. 
After I get that done, I have a list of homework to do including a quiz I’m pretty sure I am not sure I understand the information for plus several chapters to read, a poem to edit, a story to edit and submit.
We have a housewarming party to go to.  That will be fun.  I’m looking forward to that.  It will be my down time for the weekend.  Plus Vicki got from the library our favorite BBC series.  It is the last season they made of this series so that has to be watched before it goes back to the library.  She also found the Ellery Queen series.  Ken loved that show.  It was quite good and I’d really like to see those but this is sadly low on my priority list.
I did watch Monarch on the Glen last night with Vicki.  For part of the time I crocheted but then a cat invaded me and decided I was kitty bed. 
We are going to Georgia next weekend so I have to get my stuff organized for that.  Clothes, bags, and what I’m taking with and what I can leave behind.  On top of all of these things it is a pay week with all the pay week errands.
Looks like I need to make a to-do list so I can stay on track of what needs to get done and by when…
