I think that’s it…
LM= last minute. That’s the stuff that I pretty much can’t really do til toward the end. I reall think I’m forgetting stuff…but either way, it’s nice to have it all written out.
Departure Date is Feb 20…So, if I look tired, this is probably why.
Oh, my regular to-do list:
-take down Christmas stuff
clean apt (1/17)
clean off desk (1/17)
wash all the salt/snow/etc. off car (1/16)
-get Taxes done ASAP…as soon as W-2 is available!!
take cookies in to work instead of eating them. 😛 (1/16)
change out windshield wipers (add fluid if needed). (1/16)
And I work 40 hours a week. And trying to exercise…ugh.
My brain is going to explode.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
