or rather the urgent/important and the important
11 days to go, minus the 2 days taken up by family gatherings over the Christmas weekend, and Pete, the kids and I are catering for a group of 17 over 12 days on a Blue Moose summer mission.
9 days left to get everything sorted
Over 700 individual serves of food
I laugh at that number because it's a whole lot easier than 700 looks or sounds
I promise it is
Much to do of course, many lists to be made
but all up, easy done
I just need to be and stay organised
Keep a steady pace
Focus on the urgent/important things
Trust that things that are 'just' in the important list will wait
LOADS of shopping to be done
Groceries for the trip. Clothes enough for us to all be away that long with minimal washing
Cat food, chook food, baby food
Systems to have in place for milk deliveries, mail, chooks, cat, bins etc before we go
A garden that needs to be planted out this weekend so it can be at least a little bit established before we go away, or we won't be having our usual summer bounty of vegies over the coming months
Preparing the house for a potential house sitter
Hoping we get the house sitter
The back up plans of friends and neighbours if we don't
Family needs, hubby time, playgroup break up, thank you gifts, optometrist appointments, resting
People needing to hear back from me
Me not doing so because it's yet to hit the urgent/important list... it's only on the important list
At least I haven't put them on the not important and not urgent list :o)
Hindered by health, the increase of MS symptoms that has come with finishing pregnancy & breast feeding, the arrival of summer, and whatever progression might happen otherwise.
Fatigue. Brain fuzz. Visual disturbances. Bumping & falling.
Awesome opportunity for self development, training the hearts of my children
For serving Him
Taking the time to blog about it using up precious energy and focus?
It gets that out of my head, which has been going around and around all day
Freeing that thought space instead for the processing of the next packing list
Shopping list actually
