On Procrastination

I just spent twenty minutes organizing my receipts into little tidy piles which I will now combine and shove in a drawer to someday enter into a spreadsheet before tossing them. I've managed to tape two Christmas cards to my front door and I'm trying to convince myself that's enough decorating for this year.

This is a comment in response to my post on dawdling rather than addressing immediate responsibility. Perhaps the best comment ever:  validation, connection, humor. Thanks for the laugh BugginWord.
And for material for today's "post".  I used your Toe-gina yesterday too. It was nice.


  1. I'm one of the procrastinators of the world too. However, organizing my receipts will never happen. Not when I can shove them all into my purse.

  2. Amen BlueViolet. Look no futehr than the bottom of my purse or the little bucket i my car console for those receipts. And hey without putting off other things when would we mommies EVER have time to blog? I put everything off and see - here I am blogging and commenting at 1 am! Looks like I need to put more really important junk on the back burner.

  3. I do my best Xmas decorating under pressure. If we don't invite people over to see the tree, it doesn't happen.

  4. Today is the day I decorate..after a nap and lunch with the girls...who am I kidding.

  5. I have been using quicken since 1996... I stopped working on it since this July and on Thanksgiving day it took me the whole day (until 3 am) to catch up on the "back log". It was due to necessity since I have had to pay late fees to a couple of CC bills. I also failed to pay a doctor's bill that was sent to me in July. Good thing they didn't send me to the collection agency.


Your thoughts are welcome here. As long as they are kind. Or maybe just not unkind.
