Day 291 – Overwhelmed

I just realized it’s December, I know I’ve seen signs of it around me, hell, I’ve even written about it.  But it just occurred to me that Christmas is next week, and there are about a thousand things I have planned before our “season” starts again and I’m running out of time.  Between now and New Year’s alone, there is too much on my plate.

Let’s start with the current Project – or should I say nightmare?  There is so much to do and no time to do it in.  Every room needs something more, I got brave and called a contractor last week, he showed up on Monday.  The big things I couldn’t manage, he is whipping right out.  Did I mention it’s my ex-husband?  He and his wife are here helping and thank God for them, we were drowning.  The plumber and the carpet layer were also here on Monday, so the place was really busy.

Now, lets move on to the rest of the week.  On Friday there’s a party – we aren’t headed back until Thursday, I’ve got a hair appointment with my favorite hair dresser at 6 a.m. on Friday morning, and then that party.  This is an End of the World as we know it party.  We will be celebrating so many things with some of our favorite people.  I can’t wait to share the details, but that will have to wait.

Then, of course, there is the Christmas celebration with my family, the big turkey, the presents, all the fixin’s – thank goodness it’s at my daughters house.

But, wait, that’s not all – then we are headed to Pasadena to the Rose Parade.  All week long we will be building floats with volunteers from across the country.  This is our second year and I am so excited.  So, who’s ready for a busy could of weeks?
