Christmas Among the Costumes

Mad Hatter hats, colourful wigs, sparkly dresses, and spooky masks adorn the aisles of the second-hand store... my stationary section has been rearranged so it took me a while to find the Christmas and birthday cards I was searching for.  Slightly ahead of the season, I know, but it takes me a while to get over 300 cards ready to go for the end of the year.  I wiped myself out though trying to peruse through a few stores.  I can't believe how much energy this tonsillectomy has taken away from me. 

Tonight I started compiling my lists for Canadian, US, and International mailings and smiled as I remembered about how rare it is for me to actually create lists.  Then I started thinking that maybe I should start making a list about all that needs to be done in the next month and a half before I hope to move to Uganda.... here is a rough sketch of what crossed my mind:
  • raise the other 30% needed to live and serve in Uganda
  • spend time with my niece and nephews
  • speak at Rehoboth Fellowship CRC in Bowmanville on November 6th
  • finish my role as support worker on November 12th
  • speak at Williamsburg CRC on November 13th
  • visit old friends and family from the area where I grew up
  • take a road trip to Grand Rapids, MI to catch up with college mates
  • and maybe take in American Thanksgiving in St. Louis, MO
  • decide whether to have a good-bye party, or a Coffee House fundraiser, or both
  • have a commissioning service with my sending church - Bethel CRC
  • pack my bags or bins, after doing some last minute shopping for necessities and wants
  • write 300+ Christmas cards
  • follow-up with my surgeon
  • and so much more  :)
