Anti-Procrastination Day


Every once in awhile I make myself take an Anti-Procrastination Day.

This is one of those every once in a whiles.

Today I'm paying the bills I've put off paying.... sending the emails I should have sent ages ago..... ordering the postage stamps online I've been meaning to order... answering your comments in my blog.... catching up on my ironing... actually reading the instructions to the new juicer I found at a yard sale--five weeks ago... and finding recipes online for my new homemade cookbook, one I'll create like the ones here. Well, you know ... that stuff which is so very easy to put off and put off and put off and ...

(Look out--if I've owed you an email for eons, you may just receive one from me today.)

I am greatly anticipating tomorrow when I'll feel fabulous without all that procrastination weight upon my shoulders and head! Woo hoo! Earlier this morning I paid the bills and ordered the stamps... I think I feel lighter already (I am so not kidding)...


Anyone want to join me today by celebrating Anti-Procrastination Day at your house?

I have those days every now and then. I did a little anti-procrastination work last night and a little more this morning. It helps me to lose my to-do list every now and then because I tend to keep myself far too busy with things that don't have to be done.

Good for you on catching up! Have I told you yet that I like your new look?

Maybe tomorrow. ;-)

I'm laughing because I'm totally serious. I think it's a great idea, but I have to take my 8 year old to the dentist to have a tooth pulled today and that stresses me out quite a bit because she'll be frightened. Tomorrow might be a great day for taking care of things I've been avoiding. (notice how I said "might"? I'm very cagey that way.)

I'm moving, and if there were any way to put it off, I would.

I will be SO happy though, to get on the other side of 'this'.

Oh, I really need to give myself one of those days - it's those little things I put off that seem so big....till I actually tackle them and then wonder what I was waiting for!

I really needed that post. I have been putting off organizing my scrapbooking supplies and journal supplies.

That was the little nudge I needed!! All organized now.

Must be going around. I got some out of the way yesterday, too.
