Why do I procrastinate?

I am sitting here with a huge list of things I need to do before I leave on Wednesday morning.

And what am I doing with this "huge list?"

Just looking at it. And looking. Not doing. Just Looking.

I will tell you that I work better under pressure. I do.

That is why I love tight deadlines. I can get it together!!

But with things like getting ready for a trip or doing things around the house, I am the Queen of Procrastination!!

Running around like a crazy woman. Thinking I forgot something. Knowing I forgot something. It can get quite ugly. LOL

And I have always been a procrastinator.

I did when I was in school. So, I had a few weeks to do a project or essay. No problem! Plenty of time! Then why did it always seem like I was scrambling the night before to get it all done?

I was 45 minutes late for my wedding. Ok, the photographer was in a car accident and the bridesmaids dresses were coming apart at the seams, but 45 minutes???? Ugggh!

And I am leaving for Talladega in two days! Two days! My girlfriends and I have been planning this for almost a year. I thought we had all our ducks in a row, but once again we are scrambling with the last minute details.

Have I packed?

nope.

Do I know what I am packing?

nope.

Am I getting ready to pack?

nope.

It is par for the course. LOL

It is definitely something I need to work on.

So, there it is. I am a procrastinator.

I am pretty sure I will not be posting anything else until I get back next week.

But I know I will have stories to tell. LOL

It is going to be a blast. Once I get there.

It is getting ready to get there that will be a process. LOL

So, wish me luck.

Procrastinator. Out.

(have a great week)
