Putting the "PRO" in PROCRASTINATE!

That title really does sum up how I work. I have always been a "wait to the last minute and then let's do this!" kind of gal. And I usually come out smelling like a rose. You know, I do my best work at the last minute. Some examples:

  • I have a chapter of writing due for an action research paper, I am sick and on meds, and it is now 2 pm and my chapter is due at midnight. Wrote my best chapter, ever that night and made the deadline!
  • Uh Oh! People coming to the house in an hour? The place needs to be cleaned, vacuumed, dusted, shampoo rug, repaint walls (went a little to far on the reality road, huh?) ...Well you get my meaning. I can churn out a full on house cleaning lickety split...if I have people coming over. 

This brings us to my present last-minute-to-do-but-still-come-out-smelling-like-a-rose situation. Getting everything needed to be done before you leave on a trip and you only have 5 hours to do it. 
And go...:
  1. Dr. Appt
  2. Spare key
  3. Allergy pills for Gavin
  4. Pack
  5. Put out trash for "trash day"
  6. Visit with sister
  7. Call folks and tell them I love them. You know, just in case, like wear clean underwear incase you are in an accident.
  8. Triple check itenerary
  9. Love up on Gavin
  10. Make a playlist on iPod
  11. Get snacks
I am sure reality will smack me upside the head and give me a wake up call on what I can and can't do. I will be lucky to get 5 of those things done.

That is ok. I am going to do what I can and move on to enjoy seeing something on my bucket list! This means I am going to take a lesson from our favorite...eCards!
