Organized chaos may be, but still chaos.
I am starring keenly at my diary this week. I need to be far more organized than I know how to be. Let me give you a quick run down....
Today is the 12th. That is 13 days till Christmas.
In that time I need to finish packing up the house, do all my Christmas shopping, plan a Christmas celebration banquet for over 160 people, move house and clean this rental property up for the final inspection, oversee and pull off that banquet and- all this on top of my everyday life that is actually fairly full already. Did I mention we are down to one car?! Help!
Somewhere in there I need to follow up on a specialist appointment for Princess Squirmy, re-enroll her in swimming class, attend 2 Christmas events (separate from the banquet) and figure out the bus timetables so that I can do all of the above.
A peace that transcends all understanding
Yet- this is where I stand. In that peace. I know if I can just keep my focus and not loose my head, everything will work out. At this point I am eager to just get settled into the new place. I'm going to buy myself a beautiful bunch of flowers, put them in a vase and place them in the middle of the dining room table. Then I am going to turn on the oven and bake myself something that makes the whole place smell like home.
Till then......I'll try to enjoy the chaos.
