To Do Lists

I have been working with my own to do list that I made based on a Real Simple Wedding list and a book we purchased (and I have avoided the Knot's list with one-million to dos like the plague). We are behind!! But, I was reviewing our list and realized there were a lot of things scheduled to do by July 1st, that I'm not planning to do until August. Because I am leaving my current job mid-August and won't be starting a new one until after the wedding, I will have almost a month to get settled and do some projects. Things I was planning to do: programs, favors (unless they get scratched), other signage, welcome baskets. I noticed that my list has me scheduled to be done with everything by August 12 (one month pre-wedding). While I know that's ideal, I think for me it makes time to use that time to do projects since I won't be working. Any thoughts? I'd love to know if you think I'm crazy for planning to do so much in the last month? I think it might actually be nice to have something to keep me busy and keep my anxiety down.

Hey, if you know for sure you will be off from work..., then wait, but you might want to do an ocassional thing before then, just in case something else comes up...?

Just a thought.

I'm only focusing on the big to-dos that I'm behind on (I've only got 10 weeks to go). Do a few little things just to feel like you are accomplishing something, otherwise you could be hit with no "omg" phase of "I'm so behind and overwhealmed." I used the same list as a base. I'm convinced some of that timeline is off.
