In general, I am not a procrastinator. But I am practicing now. I have a few things I should be doing but instead I am writing to pass the time, knowing full well the other things I need to do will be there and one may be overdue. A chance I'm willing to take.
Are you wondering why I go to this place and put myself through this five days a week? I'll tell you why...because it is working.
Food is also taking up much of my time. Not so much eating it, but shopping, preparing and cooking it is very time consuming. I have always prided myself that I cooked most meals from scratch and cooked with fresh,raw food to begin with, rarely boxed or canned. But my eating habits were different and if I was too tired or couldn't be bothered to cook I didn't. We ate out or had popcorn for dinner. Not really an option now. So I plan, shop, and prepare three meals plus one or two snacks a day, every day, for me and my husband. Thankfully he cleans up and shops if I give him a list. But that means I have to plan and since I am practicing procrastination, well, you see the problem.
Monday I had a very good day getting things done but having lots of fun. But I was practicing procrastination on the items on my to do list I didn't want to do. We had the day off for Columbus Day so I went to the mall with a girlfriend to buy supportive undergarments (I don't want to embarrass any man who might be reading)and some fun things as well. Then I went to pick up my sewing machine and saw a friend from ten years ago. That was the highlight of my day. We chatted, traded numbers and will be in touch again when she returns from a trip to help her daughter who is having a baby.
Monday was near perfect, but everyday can't be daisies and butterflies.
Well, I've been procrastinating almost an hour now, so I think I'll stop now and work on a few other things. I hope tomorrow is a daisy and butterfly day, for all of us!
