The holidays are a busy time for everyone and I know we are no exception. Since Thanksgiving was late this year, it seems like the holidays are even more hectic. There was one less weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas than in previous years. It shouldn't make a big difference, but it does.
The push to get Phil's dissertation done and turned in put us into survival mode. Cleaning was kept at a minimum. Laundry done as needed, but not folded. Grocery shopping was limited as well.
I do have my priorities though. Given a choice between folding laundry during nap time or putting up Christmas decorations, I chose decorations. All. The. Way.
That choice, however, left me with a scene that looks like this:
And there's more where that came from.
To make matters worse, this is what awaits me at work:
To be reviewed.
My to-do list is so long, I pretty much need to take this home to review it. But who has the time? I'm trying to find a way to dig down deeps and get everything accomplished.
And there is one thing that will always be at the top of my list...
Spending time with this guy.
If someone can help me figure out a way to get everything done, find 2 more hours in the day, or perhaps ways to have a little more energy, I would greatly appreciate it.
We are almost to the finish line of graduate school! I just need to keep my head down and priorities straight until then.
