Too Much to Do

  6. Carry-on size bag for Princess Ivi

  8. Gift for Princess Ivi’s dad(??)
  9. Stocking Stuffers
  10. Gift for Mom

To Assemble

  1. Two pairs of wristers
  2. Two surprise gifts for Princess Ivi

To Visit

  1. Princess Ivi's dad for Christmas
  2. Brother's family prior to Christmas day

To Wrap

  1. All presents

To Stuff

  1. Two Stockings (mom's and Princess Ivi's)

To Do

  1. Ship package to sister on or around 12/18
  2. Charge and load ipods before Christmas
  3. Charge batteries for camera
  4. Pack for trip to sister's house (leaving Jacksonville at 11:50 a.m. on 12/25) -of course this includes making sure there are sufficient clean clothes for said trip as well as pulling out our cold weather gear (which thankfully isn’t too far in the closet)

This seems so overwhelming especially when I consider that I have one pay check between now and Christmas (I am not counting the check I will receive on Christmas Eve). Thankfully Princess Ivi is out of school starting on the 21st and she is really good about helping with laundry and stuff. She will also make sure she has what she needs to keep herself occupied on the plane.

Judging from this list, my life will be very crazy for the next few weeks.
