I was upset yesterday; I kept thinking of the million things I have to get done before I go on vacation in two weeks. When that happens, I start shutting down and playing too much Solitaire and putting things off until "tomorrow". It is an easy problem for me to fix though; I just make a list of all that has to be done and assign it to a day and get the whole mess out of my head and onto a piece of paper. Roadmap.
So, yesterday I decided it was time to get my hair cut. The cleaning person we have twice a month didn't get here until afternoon though but I stayed for half of her time, told her what I wanted done, etc. and left she and DH to go do something with my long, fly-away, straggly, messy hair. It's a bit too short now but will do; it should be perfect by the end of my vacation in a month (I hope).
I also decided to go to the thrift store and see if I could find some short sleeve tops (that aren't t-shirts, all I have) and that worked extremely well; I found 5-6+ for only $15. I got a couple more stray items on my list of things I needed, small basket filters for the car outlet coffee pot DH bought me for Christmas; all these hurricanes and derechoes and weird weather patterns make getting coffee difficult with the power out and, as we're driving to/from Florida, our own coffee is better than the places' we stay; we can get on the road and have our coffee too (bottled water).
So, today's tasks are to figure out what research/family papers I'm taking, plan all that and do filing of all the stuff in my box here that I'm not taking and don't need as I continue to work the next couple weeks before we go and then when we get to Florida, before going to the Caribbean. Getting organized with what I needed to do before leaving on the 24th has made me feel so much better, I figure I'll do that for my research/paper work too.
I'm almost out of my asthma rescue inhaler; I see my doctor on Friday but I'm rationing how often I can use my inhaler and that is kind of dumb so I called the doctor's office this morning and asked could I get my prescriptions sent to the pharmacy today instead of in two days. I'm waiting to hear back from them so I can exhale, so-to-speak :-) I suspect the cold I caught back Thanksgiving put my usage up more and I know the last week or two, this weird weather is not helping; it's supposed to be near 60 here this weekend (but heavy frost each morning as we wake up).
