Bridgesburning is Comment Weary

Bridgesburning is Comment Weary

 

I love to read blogs and when someone takes the time to write their thoughts I love to comment. It’s an affirmation of your work. 

 The comment sections are driving me crazy with having to fill in so much information that has cut my commenting time way down.  Way down.  Actually the time is the same but the comments are fewer.

 Jumping hoops to comment?  I know much of it is to cut down on spam but holy cow!  There are some I try to comment on and then for some reason it won’t go so I just give up.  By the time I fill in my name, email and site I have forgotten what my brilliant comment was.

 Next I suppose we will have to provide photo ID to comment, or a blood test to prove we are human, or DNA at a cost of course.

 I am enjoying your posts but time is of the essence.  The ideal?  Comment, hit the button and move on.

 So to all of you I may not get to:

Great post! 

I’m with you on that!

Wow! That’s incredible!

Really? I didn’t know that.

Great pics I love what you did with light!

You made my day!

What a lovely tribute!

 Well back to commenting.  Today it was Mama Kats Prompts and I want to hit everyone but alas I won’t.  Nuts.  But y’all keep writing and I will find a way to comment!

I Washed a Door Today

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!
