dizzy, whizzy, busy ....


...... dizzy, whizzy, busy .... that's my day today ... i am, in general, no more or less busy than anyone else ... don't we all fill our days a little too full ... get most of it done ... let lots of it slide ... but at the end of the day you just go to sleep anyway and start all over tomorrow?

well .. not me ... not today ... today i had nothing on my calendar in the morning .. nothing ... that never happens .... and i should have painted ... but i planned that for the end of the morning ... i was going to do TEN things that i'd been putting off .... ten things i had been procrastinating ... then things that i was ALWAYS putting off doing ... that were absolutely not hard to do ... just easy to skip ... do you have things like that?

the one i'm most proud of? i hung up pictures in my bedroom ... we moved back into this house last june ... and i had cleverly leaned paintings around the room right below the spots where they needed to be hung ... and yet? ten months later? still leaning ... but no longer ... all hung up .... it took a whopping ten whole minutes of my day ... why on earth did i wait so long? ... so dorky !

so , have i told you about the happiness project? it is a super groovy blog ... perfect for me .. and probably perfect for you too ....last night i read this article there ....scroll right on down to number six ... she's right ... so right ... it's kind of exhilarating to knock out a bunch a bunch a bunch of things ....
and, because on my short list of bloggy rules it says: e, you should always try to have a picture ... i give you this picture ... of the most unprofessional package i've ever mailed .... i'd procrastinated getting it boxed up for more than a week because the recipient was on a trip ... but mostly, i procrastinated boxing it because it was hard! it is a 10 by 30 canvas ... and boxes just don't come in that size ... so i cut up a packing box ... and MEANT to turn it inside out and use the blank inside on the outside ... but i forgot ... in the midst of my box wrestling (can you picture it? ) i wrestled it wrong (wrongly?) .... so it looks wonky odd ... but i'm ok with that ... cause i'm pleased with then innards ....

so ... back to my list of bloggy rules .... e, it's always nice to end in a question or two or ten ... so you might get some comments (who doesn't love comments?) .... so ... the question is ... if you hung FIVE pictures up in your bedroom, how long would it take for your lovely significant bedroom sharer to notice? ....

and ... a final question ... what is your current great procrastination?

dizzy, whizzy, busy ... sometimes that's the best way to be ....

immediately - because he won't let me hang anything without his manly tools. Trust me, he's probably right.

ROFL Packaging looks great to me, and it's the innards that matter anyway. I'm home Sunday and will send the check out Monday assuming I can find the checkbook... :)

Oh, and my Harvard diploma - which you'd think I'd want to show off prominently - has been leaning against MY bedroom wall for at least 4 or 5 months, because I don't have a better place to put it. So don't feel bad. :)

I tend to procrastinate daily...but as I am a list maker and love to cross things off, my procrastinating has diminished lately as a result of last # on the list - :do it all today"!


Enjoy the unboxing Lavinia! I assume the package is for you!

I should never procrastinate the proofreading!!

see you there! said...

Procraste in my middle name. I just wrote about it on Very Mary's blog and come here and you ask about it.

Maybe the Universe is sending me a message. If that's the case I guess I should stop procrastinating and open it.

Hmmmmm
