I Washed a Door Today
Well technically not yet. But I am working up to it.
You see when I have a task I must do I will find anything else to do.
Canadian taxes are due April 30th and this was the day to search through papers to make sure I have it all together. The problem is there are LOTS of papers and every time I get company I do a quick file into any drawer available. So the plan today was…..
Anyway I started the day optimistically. But then I realized I had laundry. So…
After getting that started I thought about my brother and sister in law leaving for sun, sand, and margaritas tomorrow and then I got lost in my memories of previous trips.
Friends came for dinner last night and brought a book they thought I might like. I felt obligated to at least look at it. So….
The book is The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. I can recommend this book as I have quickly read all 902 pages. NOT my fault I swear! After all this talk this week on WordPress about writers finding time to read I felt it was my duty.
So I am quickly running out of excuses, I mean reasons for not doing taxes. The laundry is almost done, and it isn’t like I actually DO the laundry but I feel I must support my machine while it does it.
I certainly have the time today. But then it occurred to me the walls were looking a little dingy and my common sense told me there was no way I could wash all the walls today so I thought I could start with a door and work my way from there.
Then of course I decided I had not posted today so….
Hmmm what should I do next?
Question: Are you a procrastinator and what do you do to achieve it? Really I want to know as I am running out of ideas!
