After everyone worked from home Monday and Tuesday during the snowstorm, the past Wednesday through Friday was absolutely insane. Schedules were shifted, meetings were hurried, and we all scrambled to make deadlines. Happily, by the end of the day yesterday I had taken care of all the essentials and was ready for my holiday vacation. As much as I love my job, I’m very excited to have some time to rest and focus on other things.
Speaking of other things, I’m a little behind this year due to all the recent overtime. Over the next four days, I need to:
- Finish my shopping
- Wrap everything
- Clean, decorate, and buy food for my Christmas Eve open house (one of my annual traditions)
- Bake for Christmas Day
I also have plans with several friends and family members (in addition to the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day activities), so things are going to be busy. This morning, however, I’ve set aside for relaxation (I actually blocked off the time on my calendar and labeled it “Do nothing”). This afternoon I’ll start working on the list.
What do you still need to do to get ready for the holidays?
