Well November 16th it is!
How do I feel? Well, completely scatter-brained. I am trying to get so much done that I’m flitting from one thing to the next.
I am going to decorate for Christmas on November 11/12 (so Remembrance Day will have to forgive me) but I also need to work on Christmas cards and shopping! So I’ve been madly trying to figure out what I can get for people, at least the initial gifts and then I can people to pick things up for me here and there or I can order them online. I have even written my Christmas letter… there may be a few minor changes but it’s ready to print as soon as I get some paper.
Then on Friday I got a call… I have to go to the pre-surgical clinic at the hospital. Yes, because three weeks ago I was agitated about my upcoming appointment with the specialist but life was carrying on and now I feel like I’m trying to squash a six-week span of time into two and a half weeks!! Now I have to add a 1-2 hour appointment to the mix! I guess they wouldn’t understand that.
It’s because I feel so scatter-brained that I can’t seem to focus on any one thing for any length of time because some other thought is creeping into my brain. It’s that “so many things, so little time” adage.
Of course I’m also supposed to be starting NaNoWriMo on Wednesday. I’m not so sure I’m going to be able to squeeze in 1,667 words a day. I will also end up losing at least a few days. The laptop is going to the hospital with me though if it’s going to be two nights. He said two days and surgery is at 9:00 a.m. so getting kicked out late in the afternoon on Friday works for me! If all I’m going to do is sleep there and then get up and get kicked out before 10:00 what’s the point? I could be at home, in MY environment, in MY bed and be more comfortable and rest better. That’s what health-care is all about… or at least it is in family practice!
So I’m going to carry on in my scatter-brained ways and see what else I can manage to get done in the sporadic amounts of time I have available to do so… or go clean out the fridge!
