Procrastinator Extraordinaire....

Has anyone noticed lately that I am... ummm... here? I do recall that I was going to spend all of my time getting the guest house and the main house ready to put on the market by Christmas. Hahahaha! What a pipe dream that was!

It suddenly turned colder approximately a whole month early this year. I've been forced to switch over my winter clothes a month early (Oh, the horror!) as well as spending the better part of the day preparing plants to come inside for the winter. None of the plants like to come indoors for the winter because they all know. They've obviously heard from their plant friends how I tend to neglect plants during the colder months, often allowing them to meet an untimely demise. They were so scared they were shaking. Really! Besides, I'm sure they have seen the dead carcasses of their plant friends when I have to toss them out in the spring.

That's not to say it won't be 85 degrees again anytime soon, because it will. It will probably be on Christmas Day, when we want warm weather about as much as a root canal. We haven't had a white Christmas since the children were teenagers which would make it approximately 8 or 10 years ago. Actually, I think there was a white Christmas the last time we went skiing for Christmas, but we were already gone so we missed it (which basically means it never happened).

So, not only is the weather hampering my progress around here but it's also preventing me from playing golf as well. And... what am I doing? I'm blogging away while watching my ass grow in size, realizing I'm not accomplishing much of anything at this point. I am, however, growing less fit by the day because I'd rather work on the guest house than get out in the cold and exercise. It wouldn't matter, really. I just hate to exercise or clean out anything. Oddly enough, I don't seem to be able to get much of anything done these days, which includes the main house, the guest house, scrap-booking or exercise. I am, however, caught up on my ironing which is nearly unheard of in my world.

While the guest house does have an air conditioner, it does not have a heater (that works anyway). It can get bitterly cold out there in that tiny space. I know. I'm just making excuses, aren't I? I seem to be doing everything I can to avoid doing that which I really need to be doing. Procrastinator extraordinaire. That's me. I suppose you could say I'm honing that particular skill. Not that it needed honing. I've been sharpening my procrastination skills since I could talk.

 I'm assuming that what I really need to do is work on those *cleaning out* skills that I claim to have....

You're just waiting until the housing market recovers a little more before you really have those areas ready. See how that works?!

Your progress sounds about like my progress in unpacking. I should be unpacking but what do I do? Blog, facebook, surf youtube,...

All in due time, my friend. All in due time....

Where are you moving? I am going to put my house on the market in January. I am looking forward to that about as much as a broken foot.

Oh, I hear that. We're just moving to a more easily manageable size place. Like with NO yard and nothing but swimming pool, LOL!

Hell you're just busy working on your blog, so you don't have time for anything else. That's what I tell people and it always seems to work. Or at least they shut up. :o)

A-haaaa, now we really see why you're doing the post-a-day thing ;-) Must Blog! No time for working out, gotta blog post to do! Can't be spending all day on the guest house when there's a post being born.
It'll all get done eventually.

First you are blogging everyday, now you are caught up on the laundry. Snooty, I hate you! j/k

I'd always rather golf than clean. Thus my cluttered closets, dirty house, and wrinkled clothes.

I was just getting ready to twitter: "the great purge has begun!" (HA - how many times have I said that?? One look at my cluttered home and you'd know the answer is in double digit number!)
And I could certainly give you a run for your money as far as possessing procrastination skills above and beyond the ordinary!

GAH .. add to my list of 'gotta do' the final packing up of the Florida condo which has been sold ... closing is mid December and between now and then there's work to be done ... OY

I SO do that too! This has been a terrible "exercise" season for me. And all my pants are too tight-yuck. Some times when I don't feel like doing something I figure God is trying to tell me something. So I go and do what I feel like (which is hopefully not eat). xoxo

Are the plants dead yet?

I know the feeling... I have stuff I should be doing too, like exercising, but here I am blogging! It all gets done eventually.
