back to it


It is time to get back to life.  I need to get some things done.

Some.  Nice try.

Try Lots.

I return to work part-time December 3.

Between now and then I have counselling appointments, Dr. appointment(s), a meeting with the insurer to ensure I receive payment the hours I am not at work in December.  I need funds to facilitate the ‘back-to-work part-time plan’.  I need to continue my progress with reconnecting with friends and I have planned a much looked forward to lunch with my boss which will include a trip into the office, the first one since the end of July.

I have also started cleaning out my closet and making sure all the work duds are cleaned, ironed and ready to go!

Ok.  Deep breath.

I am looking forward to the lunch.  It will be good to catch up with my boss.  I want to be able to get right back to my daily work routine on December 3.  My idea is to go pick her up from the office so that I can say hello to the women at work.  That way I will get all the chit-chat, questions, and much looked forward to hugs out of the way before I go back to work.  Because December 3 I plan on getting down to the business of being the best damn legal assistant in Vancouver!

I need a day planner.  A small one I can carry with me.  I cannot keep up with these appointments on the wall calendar I use at home. 

So the plan for today – Power walk in the rain, a stop at Capers to pick up some veggies and fruit, and a stop at Office Depot to treat myself to a cheap planner.

I just love lists, planners, anything really that makes me feel organized.  Yippee!

    I love my planner! I’m not sure I use it correctly because I’m certainly not very organized but when I hold it and look at it and scribble in it, I feel like I’m on the right track.
    Good luck! I’m happy for you!

    I keep writing down my plans for the next day, trying to put things in a logical order. Sadly, I usually only get about halfway down the list before I run out of time…

    It sounds like you have this all much more figured out than I!
