Do you ever feel as though life is running by you and you can't keep up?  I'm feeling that way this morning.

I've got a million things to do for school, housework to catch up on, and family & friend obligations that I've set for myself.  What was I thinking?

I wish I could hire a housekeeper, but then again, I wouldn't want one to see the state of my house right now.

I am also procrastinating on my 'homework' for Tuesday.  It's a debate, and I have never debated in my life.  That's why I don't usually talk politics or controversial topics with people I don't know, or even friends.  I am just not a quick-thinker.  I need to form my ideas and then answer.  And even then, sometimes I have trouble forming my thoughts.

I have a lot of work to do on it, and instead I'd rather be outside with my nieces, photographing the Spring buds bursting out on the trees, or cooking up a new recipe.   I'm sitting here typing this instead of working.    Although I know what I should be doing, I'm trying to talk myself out of working on it.  I guess I need to make myself a deal.  If I work for two hours on the debate, I'm allowed 2 hours out doing something else.  It's going to be 68 degrees and sunny today.  I don't want to miss it, so I'm going to go work now.

Do you ever have to have a discussion with yourself like this?  What are you procrastinating about?  I'm sure I'm not the only one.   Or at least I hope not!

Thanks for listening.

  1. I hope the debate went well! I think you made a very good deal with yourself...a little bit of play mixed with work is always the way to go.

    Who? Me? Procrastinate? Never! ;)
