Countdown

T minus…
… 6 weeks until 2010.
… 5 weeks until Christmas.
… 1 month until I turn 40.
… 3 weeks until our birthday trip to Vegas.
… 2 weeks until my dental check-up.
… 6 days until Thanksgiving.
… 2 days until I am the father of a 12-year-old daughter.
… 1 day until the weekend.

      kapgar – November and December are always pretty busy. That’s not even everything as we have a soccer tournament, a band concert, a choir concert and probably some more stuff I’m forgetting. And, of course, Christmas shopping somewhere in there.

      B.E. Earl – But this list is mostly the good stuff, the non-stressful stuff. Well, I guess the holidays themselves are stress-inducing, but I don’t think of them that way.

    This list make me nervous. My coming weeks are not known as efficiently as yours. I better get with it.

      Yum Yucky – The next 6 weeks are probably most people’s most hectic time of the year, so you’re far from alone.

    Only 5 weeks until Christmas? Seriously? Bugger – so much to do. And quite frankly, where the hell did this year go eh?

      Kevin Spencer – Right? As we get older, every day, month, year, etc. is a smaller portion of the life we have lived, so they just go by faster and faster. At least, that’s my theory on the phenomenon.

    My list would consist of some of those and:

    9 days until my husband leaves for India. Hmm, that’s the first time I’ve typed that. I’m still a bit freaked out about the whole thing.

    Happy Birthday to your daughter!

      Employee No. 3699 – Yikes! How long will he be gone? My wife travels pretty often, but she’s seldom gone more than a week or two at a time.

    Dental checkup. I have one of those on Wednesday. The day before Thanksgiving. Clean teeth before I smear turkey gravy and cranberry sauce on them.

      martymankins – Interesting scheduling. I never know what our pre-Thanksgiving Wednesday plans are that far in advance, so I avoid scheduling things for that day — or for the whole week, really.
