Year End

There is cheer everywhere. People are celebrating. Everyone has a smile on their face. I as usual stand on the other end of the spectrum.

The ever so organized me (NOT!) pushes out the non-important things like err..eye appointments, dental checkups, yearly doctor visits to when I will have some time and then come December the clock starts ticking. There is mad dash to get all the various appointments before the benefits for the year expire, schedules are checked and rechecked to shuffle all the various visits. Add to the mix are the kids’ pick up and drop offs for their various doctors’ visits and work that does not stop.

End result is a crazy, cranky, stressed out me.

We almost always add last minute unplanned vacation to the already crazy timeline, which ends up needing figuring out airplane tickets, accommodations, car rentals, packing.. argh

Between D and I, we  dropped Buzz off to school, attended work for half a day, went to my doctor, dropped eye glasses prescription, went to D’s doctor, went shoe shopping (yes yes all me :D), searched for and booked airline tickets, planned the trip and booked various hotel rooms, booked rental car, picked Buzz up, shopped for gifts for a friend’s kids, visited the said friend’s house and spend a couple of hours there, clean the house (yes that is also all me. Stupid idiot that I am, needs the house clean before I go on a trip), pack up for the trip. All in one day!

Is it any wonder that I am not fond of end of the year? And not fond is putting it mildly.

But finally all the i’s have been dotted and t’s have been crossed. Vacation, here I come. Year end, I am ready to enjoy everything you can throw my way. Life, I am ready to unwind for a bit.

Hope you guys have a great last few days of 2012 now that the world has not ended. See you all on the other side of 2013.

  1. Enjoy your well-deserved vacation! I must admit, this year end has been less stressful for me. Possibly has to do with being single this year and not having to stress out about someone else 😉

  2. Haha we are off on our vacation by tomorrow evening…. and its a mad dash just like yours, to finish and see through doctor’s appointments, all the packing, drycleaning, instructing the maids etc etc
    Zillion and one things to do while running a house. But I guess the vacation we go on, makes it worth it.

    Here’s wishing you a super wonderful 2013! Hope u have a fab vacation!

    The last minute craziness is still worth it when you sit down on that airplane and let a smile out, isn’t it? 🙂

    Oh, the cleaning up the house before leaving for a trip – Ditto here babes! Laundry done, counters cleaned, trash thrown,beds made and all that before locking up the house to leave 😀
