I keep doing it

Lets see….

  • Flowers bought 4 weeks ago, not planted yet.
  • Finish trimming the dining room, not bought yet.
  • Finish trimming the kitchen ceiling, not started.
  • Paint my front door, spray paint bought.
  • Sell two of my strollers, pictures taken.
  • Put the dog up for adoption, kind of sort of done.
  • Sew hats and put up for sale.

I keep procrastinating on these tasks and believe me, I have some really good excuses for doing so.

  • To much pollen outside, my allergies are bothering me.
  • My brother in law have not bought them yet.
  • My neck hurts to much to work on the ceiling.
  • To cold outside to leave the front door off for a few hours.
  • To scary with all the craigslist murders and robberies.
  • My kids love her too much.
  • To busy with the kids.

So what have I done?

  • I have had a lot of fun with my kids and my husband.
  • I have made two pieces of artwork.
  • I have redone my master bedroom.
  • I have purged and organized.
  • I have washed windows.
  • I have washed kitchen cabinets.
  • I sewed slipcovers for my chairs.
  • I made baby shower gifts.
  • And a whole lot more I can’t even remember.

This week coming up I will

  • Wednesday: Clean my mother in laws house; wash floors at home; do laundry; wash walls at home; clean my netbook; clean grout in kitchen and powder room.
  • Thursday: Clean my bathrooms; cook up my ground meat; bake; ok ok I will plant flowers; clean up my craft table.
  • Friday: Sew something; clean something; if it’s not raining…it is Seattle folks I will do my kitchen ceiling.
  • Saturday: Make a dent in the community mulch pile.
  • Sunday: Organize my calendar; clean up a little; post some ads.
  • Monday: Grocery shop; run errands.

It is now in black and white, a day to day plan. Will I make it?

Linking up to Amy’s Anti Procrastination Tuesday at New Nostalgia.

It sounds like a good plan! It also sounds like you did get a lot don't be too hard on yourself;)
ps. I don't like Craig's list people coming to my house when I'm alone, either!

I am tired just reading this. And I agree about having any strangers come to my house when I am home alone!! I don't even answer the door when my hubby isn't here.

There is a reason why I bought a Mac, it was not to be one of the cool kids that wanted the best of the best. No it was because of the music production I do on it. Hours and hours sitting in front of my Mac copying, pasting, moving, deleting, hour after hour just beating on my Mac in a endless assault to get my work done. That is the key part, my work. I work from home, it is great, but even if it is from home it is still work and it still needs to get done. So my Mac, I have it because it is fast, gets the job done and comes back for more.

But what happens when it doesn't want to do those things anymore?

I move around massive amounts of information and yes even on the almighty Mac this can cause a problem after a while. Things fragment, programs get corrupted issues come up. My light speed Mac slows down to a crawl and all of the sudden I simply can not get any work done. Because I work from home there is no IT guy to call and ask to come fix it. No instead I have to figure out what is wrong. I am lucky, I did, but not after trying everything under the sun first and wasting countless hours looking for one program that can do what I needed instead of ten programs. One program to lead them all….okay that was a lame Lord of the rings reference, but that program was/is Detox My Mac. A simple to use program that did not just fix my issues, it put my Mac on overdrive again. A few clicks and my Mac was clean and ready to rock and roll again.
