RES: Final Countdown

Those that know me know a bit about this...for those who may be new (or forgetful like me) a brief recap

My wife was 'downsized' out of a job (after 20 years) about 6 weeks ago, we are currently fixing up our house to rent out, searching for an RV (trailer) to live in, and are going to be relocating to Florida probably sometime mid-July (the 15th is the goal date to move, we have to be out of the house by the last week of June!) The move is dependent on me finishing up my course I'm working on (for Dietary Management, because I work in a hospital and have to work in this type of facility to complete it)...also have my oldest son getting married next weekend, things are very crazy for me at work with departmental cuts being made left and right and every expense being examined under a microscope and questioned, and me trying to save my staff members from being cut :( 

My challenges while all this has been going on have been very basic, this one will probably be even more so...this place keeps me sane and accountable and I need that right now (not that I claim to be sane)

Every day get some type of movement, walking, yoga, housework...this should not be difficult to do right now!

Every day work on homework, no NF or anything else till this is done!

Participate in the new minis, I'm super excited to see how this is going to go

The real challenge this time is trying to remember and do everything I need to (lists are my friends!) and not get overwhelmed by all of it...take one thing at a time and work through it, most importantly do not be afraid to ask for help!! She is out of town the majority of time now (driving charter buses) so it's falling on me to get it done

Yeah, every time I look at this thread it is going to take hours to get the song out of my head!

 

Wish I lived closer to help out.  You are so strong and I am sure even more productive when you are under pressure of a deadline.  You can do this.  Take it one day at a time.  Make a list of three things to get done then once they are done make a list of three more.   I can end up taking more time making a long list of what I have to do rather than getting anything done.

This is very good advice.

Also, remember to breathe. I know it sounds corny, but it really makes a difference.

Structure will be your friend through this.

Remeber that we love you.
