Yesterday morning, I struggled and struggled and finally gave up. Trying to think of a word that I know only too well. I could think of every known synonym, every application...and yet--the damned word itself evaded my crumbling memory drive. It drove me a little crazy...not crazy enough to get off my ass and look it up inh the thesaurus or anything...lol IS THIS HOW IT STARTS ??????
The word, gentle readers, was ...PROCRASTINATE. lol And here I sit this morning...looking around me, making a list (over an hour ago) of things I need to get done today...and the things are still not getting done. What is it with me???? I can find a gazillion things to do except the things that I need to do. And thank GOD for the computer...it helps me lose hours and hours of my life that would have been spent doing nasty and menial chores like cleaning the fridge or vacuuming. (Both of which are in dire need of doing!)
Ah well. There's always tomorrow. And that, dear ones, is where the problem lies. I do much better under pressure and with deadlines than I will ever do with too much time to get things done. In all fairness, I have cleaned all the yucky things out of the fridge, just haven't washed the shelves yet. And I did get the garbage to the curb. But still...
The dogs are all outside. It looks like today is the first day of the end of the heatwave. Only supposed to get to the high 80's today, which will be a welcome relief. I need to go out back and check on the garden, pick some peppers and some more tomatoes. Thinking I'll make marinara with the rest. Maybe I'll even get the pepper jelly made. (NO--I HAVEN'T DONE THAT YET EITHER!!!!!!!!!) But, first things first, and I'll get the vacuuming and dusting done while the critters are all outside. That won't take long. Then I need to spot clean some places on the rug. Nothing serious.
I won't get home tonight until about 10...but tomorrow I am off for four glorious days. Gonna start it off with coffee at a friends house. It'll be all downhill from there. My niece will probably arrive around noon, and then the fun begins.
Alright. Here I go.
