Procrastination!

Just in case anyone thinks I am some kind of wonder woman getting all kinds of things done, here are just a couple of examples of how I am badly lacking in the "get it done" department.

THE MENDING PILE:



The items in this lowly little pile of clothes have been stacked on the couch in our living room, near my chair, for months. I am not kidding! In fact one item has been there for a couple of years. There is a pair of my husband's pants that need a button sewn on that have been there since last Spring. There is a lady's top that I bought on the clearance rack that needed the spare button that came with it sewn on where one is missing. There are two pairs of pants I bought my mother last Christmas, that need to be hemmed. There is a pair of shorts that need to be hemmed, but at least this one item has only been there a couple of weeks.

EXERCISE/WALKING VIDEO:



This wonderful video has 5 one mile walks on it. Each walk only takes 14 minutes. I've had the video for 3 or 4 months and have only done one of the one mile walks once!

So there you have it, just a small glimpse into how I procrastinate.

I am happy to report that after I took the picture of the "mending pile", I went to work on it and have finished a few of the items. After I sewed the button on my husband's pants, I wondered why I had put it off, since it only took about 5 minutes!

Do any of you procrastinate like I do sometimes?

Debbie, you are in good company. I don't know why people think I am on top of everything, because I'm certainly not! There's so much to do each day and in life in general.

I think we are all a memeber of that club. It is much more fun to do fun projects than ones that need doing. I think my stack is bigger than yours.

Oh yes.

I haven't taken the time to comment much lately because I procrastinated on yard work. I'm trying to get caught up with it now after work!
