Question Putting things off

Yeah! I finally got my hair cut this morning. It's been 8 weeks since my last one. How about you? Have you been putting off doing something?


There is no path to yesterday.

lol...8 whole weeks! I get mine cut once every six months or so.

I put off putting the clean clothes away. I wash dry and fold them and stick them in the basket and there they sit until Paul needs them. I just don't like putting them away.

Lots of stuff!
Folding Laundry
I haven't cut my hair in about 2 years! It's getting too long. Next month, I promise!
Going to the doctor
Anything I can put off, I usually do.

Cleaning house.

In the summer, I am outside all the time, unless I am at work. I only clean on rainy days, and we just haven't had any rain this summer at all.

I do sweep up the dog hair from time to time--whenever it eddies into the corners and starts to look like it might grow legs and take over the dog food dish.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

I'm sure no one around here ever puts anything off!

Moi! Moi! shoooooooooooooot! procrastination might as well be my middle name! If I could get done (promptly) even half the things I "mean to," my house would be neat as a pin. As it is,

I always have 8-10 emails that "I'll get to tomorrow".
But, you see, if "tomorrow" comes, then we call it "today", so then I still have "tomorrow" to take care of them.

What things do I put off doing? Ummm, Maybe I'll just post it tomorrow, or whenever I get around to actually doing it... :-D
