  32. Start updating checkbooks.
  33. Update holiday planner.
  34. Wrap some gifts.
  35. Address final 20 Christmas cards.
  36. Light Advent candles.
  37. Read my Bible.
  38. Pray.

I know this looks like a lot.  I am really looking forward to 90% of it…I love baking cookies, wrapping gifts & just generally being home to take care of things.

Consider this list a glimpse into the overachiever in me…it really is an illness sometimes.  I don’t understand those people who say to limit your to-do list to 6 things.  If I only wrote down 6 things it would say: holiday baking, finish Christmas cards, do laundry, clean office, bookkeeping, work prep for week.   I would still have the BIG list in my head anyway, then I would also maybe not make it to the Bible reading and praying. So while my list looks long, that’s ok…I’ve learned not to beat myself up to bad if I don’t’ get it all done.

I’ll let you know how I do…but right now, I better get started!
