paralysed by obligation

There is so much stuff I *have* to do that I put it off by doing nothing. That's right! I keep not doing anything because I seem to be afraid that if I start on one project I'll miss out on doing another one. So I don't do anything.

But look, I'm blogging and that's something I feel I *should* do, so maybe I'm not doing so bad. I make a list because they are my friend.

Things I must do before I leave the Country:
- finish and tidy up at work
- finish sorting out flat mate for Muggle
- sew 3 wrap arounds and 1 baby's outfit
- sew bunting
- tidy up house (skip required)
- sell or gift food processor
- sell, gift, pack or throw away many personal goods (skip required)
- book motel for Napier
- farewell people
- get email and phone numbers of overseas people
- call rellies in Thailand to make sure they know we are coming
- change return date on tickets
- update CV
- send CV to irish employment agencies
- remind people about written references
- make lemonade
- bake a cake
- drive around visiting people and drop off gifted/lent items
- miraculously lose weight before going to Thailand
- get power of attorney forms sorted
- get will sorted
- get abeyance of insurance etc sorted (waiting on new itinerary)
- get international drivers license sorted (started)
- sort out what's happening with couch
- return any borrowed items (people will still be able to get off Muggle)
- go to pole and collect my shoes/any other stuff I have there
- teach Ruggle the ways of the Bapmobile
- get wedding presents
- buy portable hard drive
- send out wedding thank-you letters
