Wednesday, November 28th, Day Eighty-Five, To Do List

 

Evening

 
If you would like to join me in this journey from the beginning, please start with Day One.
 
I just got off the phone with the Colorado Crisis Line.  I am not suicidal or depressed.  However, I am overwhelmed and stressed.  I found out this evening that my father passed today.  My mind started racing with a zillion things I need to do in the next 48 hours.  The helper on the line recommended writing a to do list.

To Do
Done
1
First, I need to decide when to leave for Utah to be with my family there.  My husband wanted to come with me, but when we started arranging transportation by rail, I quickly became overwhelmed with the logistics of transporting my husband in a wheelchair.  He offered to stay home to make things easier for me.

I ordered a shower bench for my husband earlier today and arranged for delivery at the new address.  I canceled the order earlier tonight.  I just confirmed that the order has been canceled.

3
We bought a mattress that is supposed to be delivered Thursday, December 6th.  I could come back by that date, but I may want to stay a few days.   So I may have to re-schedule the mattress delivery date.

Tonight the HOA building manager called me.  I told him our move-in date would be later, but I could not tell him exactly when.  He wants to know when it will be, so I need to get back with him when I figure that out.  Let me see if he has emailed me.  It does not look like it.  Fortunately, I have his phone number.

The move-out coordinator for this retirement complex said today that I need to let her know our new move-out date.

6
The movers need to know our move-out date has been changed.  We have not confirmed a move appointment with them yet, so that is fortunate.
11/29
7
My mother is likely to forget that we would like her to UPS my vacuum to Colorado.  Of course, it will have to be done later than originally planned.  I could possibly do it myself while in Utah.
8
I need to fill my husband’s pill containers before I leave.
11/30
9
I need to fill my own pill containers before I leave.
10
We still need to get property or liability insurance for our new place.  We worked on that today but did not finish up.
11/29
11
We need to see if the title company gets all the utilities transferred into our names.  (No.)
11/30
12
We need to make sure all my husband’s therapy appointments will happen at the right location, which will depend on our move-out date.
11/29
13
We need to attend closing and take our drivers licenses.
11/30
14
I need to order airplane tickets.  I need to decide what day I am leaving and coming back first.  I will also need to checkin online.  I hope I do not need to print anything because we still do not have a printer.
11/29
15
I need to recharge my spare external cell phone battery so it is ready in case I need it.
11/29
16
I need to determine how long it takes to get to the airport on Saturday, so I am sure to get there in time for my flight.
11/29
17
I need to pack the bare necessities I need to take, relying as much as I can on things I already have in Utah.
18
I made a list of groceries to buy for my husband before I leave.  I can get those ordered tomorrow or the next day.
11/29
19
Alex, our realtor, gave us two more documents to sign, which are in my starred email, so I need to sign those tomorrow with my husband.
11/29
20
I left a message for my step-son tonight but did not hear back.  I need to get with him tomorrow and make sure he can look after my husband while I am gone.
11/29
21
I have a psychiatrist appointment tomorrow.  I may want to take Lyft rather than drive to reduce stress and fatigue.
