T-minus ONE MONTH: Nesting and the Beginnings of Panic Mode

Holy shit.  One more month.

My head is swimming right now.  I have so much to do in preparation - mainly getting my house organized - and I can't seem to get a handle on any of it.

You have to understand that my house is a disorganized clusterfuck of epic proportions, and my bedroom has been largely unusable for the better part of the last year or so.  I promise I'll post photos and detailed commentary on the bedroom project in another post, but for now I'm just trying to get everything out so I can rearrange it into something more user-friendly.  I have a ton of clothes to sort through, and a lot of useless shit to get rid of. I've been working on this thing on and off for the last three days, and I've barely made a dent.  In the meantime, the REST of my house is filled with all the shit I've hauled out of the bedroom, and it's just really out of hand.  And if my past performance dictates future results, my landlord (who also happens to be my uncle) will surely stop by at the height of the chaos - and most definitely while I'm not even home to defend my position.  It's stressing me out super fucking bad, and I want to get it done.  But there's a LOT of shit to wade through, and a LOT of dust which triggers my asthma, so it's taking FOREVER to get it done. 

On the 19th I go for my pre-admission tests.  On March 31st I start my pre-op liquid diet.  April 1st I go for my medical clearance exam.  April 2nd I go for my last pre-op nutrition class and fitness center orientation at Synergy Bariatrics.  That same day I have my final pre-op exam with the surgeon.  And then...April 10th is the day.

This is all happening a lot faster than it was a month or so ago when I got my surgery date.  But on the plus side, I have some free time coming up. Because I'm not performing in either chorus concert in April, I'll be out of rehearsals for the next seven weeks.  So that frees up my Monday nights.  I also have five days off from work in the near future as well (week after next).  I had taken vacation time to go out of town, but my trip got waylaid by a snafu on the other end.  So while I could say, "hey, I'm not going out of town, so never mind the vacation," I'm opting to keep the time off and (hopefully) utilize it to tie up all my loose ends.

Even still, knowing myself as well as I do, I'll be running around on April 9th like a chicken with my head cut off.
