Procrastinate. Try it, it's fun.

procrastination

I like to think of life as a big test.
There are problems to solve.
There are successes.
Failures.
And along the way you learn alot about yourself.

I have learned that I am a procrastinator.

When my "To Do List" is long and I get a little overwhelmed, I plop myself on my ass and don't do any of it.

Until I absolutely have to.

I have not wrapped.
I have not finished my Christmas shopping.
I have no idea what food I will be serving when we host Christmas Eve.
I haven't done any baking.
I haven't sent out all of my Christmas cards.
The kids haven't seen Santa at the mall.
They need haircuts.
And showers.
And new socks.

But here I sit.

Just like I always do, until I get so overwhelmed and stressed out that I am no fun to be around and everyone wants to run away from home.

Story of my life.

On a side note, my husband cleaned our shower head with some small "scrapey" tool and it is sparkly clean.

And I painted my toenails.

I'm a firm believer that as long as you have pretty toes, the rest doesn't matter. ;)

I'm a fellow procrastinator and I'm proud to admit it! :)

Well, pretty toes are much more important so your priorities are in order! Here's to getting at least 1/5th of the stuff done.

You know, toenails need attention too.

Having a clean showerhead (courtesy of your husband) and pretty toes - priceless!

The rest of it can wait.

Procrastination stresses me out... but I do it anyways... until the stress screams at me. Yikes!

Oh, I love having someone who understands my procrastinator-nature! THANK YOU! To-Do Lists be damned!

LOL You sound just like me. At least your toenails look nice. That's way down at the bottom of my To Do list, but here I sit blogging instead. ;-)
