Holiday Plans

Tonight, I walked out of work until January 4th, whew! Boy, am I ready for this break (even though I have my computer and blackberry home, I will be mostly checked out since I am using the rest of my vacation this year). Every year when I get to the end of the year, I think I will get soooo much done over break and then look back at the end and wonder where the time went, so I thought I would set out a list of goals (quilting and not) to keep my on target. 

I already have 4 week days planned - a Euchre day, a Bee day, my Mom's b-day, and Christmas day. Beyond that, I have lots of time (and a few days kid-free days), so here's what I'd like to get done:
- Organize and store kids clothes - pick out those that need to go to goodwill and send them on their way. 
- Post pictures of the Singapore/China trip
- Quilt two of Lois' UFOs 
- Finish teacher presents
- Update Lois' UFO list, my UFO list
- Set annual goals for next year and report on this year's progress. 
- Make another 1/2 dozen or so pet scrap bags for bee/guild members. 
- Eye doctor (at least make appointment, go if I can get in quickly enough)
- Call plumber and heater about annual check/maintenance visits which they are supposed to initiate but haven't done yet! 
- Call Sears about replacing stovetop that has cracked :(
- Pick up batting for our bed quilt (and it doesn't hurt that the shop is having a big sale this week either!)
- Reschedule kids flu shot to a day when they will be home all day so I can get some of that other stuff done!

Seems like a lot right now, but if I get on it tomorrow, hopefully I can make several phone calls and then do some of the quilting/organizing projects while I am waiting for/supervising work in progress. 

Oh, yeah, and I need to finish my Christmas shopping and get the gifts wrapped too!
