have I told you about my bad habit?

Well, I have many.

MANY.

OK, but just one for today. I could probably make this like a weekly feature and not finish until sometime in 2008.

Drumroll please.......I'm a big time procrastinator. I know, I know, we ALL say that. I am though in a BIG, BAD way. See this picture? We got that crack in MARCH. The picture was taken in APRIL. the crack is STILL THERE.

(and I apologize for looking so psychotic in the pic)

Phone calls, paying the bills, going to the post office...they are just a huge pain in the ass. They all get done but man do I put it off until the last possible instant. This is why I made such a big deal about starting my Christmas shopping so early, I am normally *starting* right around this time. I have a todo list a mile long and if I put my mind to it, I could probably knock half of it out tomorrow. If I put my mind to it. Which I won't. Because I have more important things to do (like lay around, read a book, read blogs, scrap, wash dishes, change diapers, feed the kids, etc, etc, etc) Seriously, I'm gonna make at least one important phone call tomorrow...and if I make one, maybe I'll make another. And the post office is a must for tomorrow too...yeah, gotta do the PO too.

Seriously, bug me tomorrow and make sure I've done it.

Thanks bunches.

  1. Girl you are cracking me...I think that I am there with you...I wait until the very last snippet before I do anything...I don't know why...nor do I plan to change it...it works for me, and when I manage to get something accomplished that I put off, for some strange reason, I feel good about it...I am never late on DT projects or bills, but they just wait till the last minute...thank god for online bill pay, eh?

    Have a great Friday...and I am not one to motivate, but I will try!

  4. I think this problem is more common than you think...you're in the majority here! Those Christmas Cards I bought, what...two weeks ago? Yeah, still in the boxes, in the Hallmark bag, on my kitchen table. And that dent in Jeremy's passenger side door that mysteriously appeared by itself? ;) Yep - that's still there too.

  7. you and me both girl! Have I mentioned we have had two star bursts in our windshield since we bought our truck (a year and a half ago) and a new one just sprouted last week? yep. it ain't getting fixed anytime soon.

    I'm the queen of procrastination, especially when it comes to laundry and dishes. and post office mailing too ;). Maybe you should try stamps.com! Can't you print the stamps at home or something with that?

  15. You know, I was stressing out today about this project that had to be finished by today. But in the midst of it I realized that I had actually spent waaaaaaaayyy more time stressing over it than actually being productive. But sometimes I just feel like I can't....get.....started. And fix that window before the snow starts to fall inside the car! ; )
