3 Things

I have had the same three things on my to do list since last Thursday. Occasionally I'll add another item or two so I'll have some things to check off, but I just can't get myself to do these other three things. They aren't even difficult or tedious things--it would take me less than an hour and I've spent at least that much time seeing them on the list, thinking about doing them or making a plan to do them later.

A few minutes ago I was like, "I'm going to go do those three things! That will feel good!" and then I decided, "I'm going to go blog about how much I don't feel like doing those three things and how long I've spent putting it off," which wasn't a good step towards accomplishing these things.

These things could be done tomorrow. There's no deadline really. Monday would even work. Maybe I could do one of these things today and one tomorrow and one Monday (because I don't do things on the weekend).

I did just download a new book and reading is more important than things, right?

This is the story of my life lol. I've had laundry, cleaning my bedroom & scrubbing the tub on my 'to do' list but all I've done is stare at the list & find other more interesting things to do. Maybe Sunday I'll actually tackle one those...maybe.

Procrastination FTW!

I did 2 of the 3 things! So now if I do the 3rd thing tomorrow, I can celebrate being ahead of schedule since the original extended deadline was Monday. ;-)

Lin, I don't even put laundry on the lists any more because it NEVER gets checked off. There's no satisfaction in that!

This is so me. We need to talk more often about our lists and life plans and whatnot.
