I’ve used this word before but it was nearly two years ago so I think I’m allowed to use it again.
weird sad thing is, a lot of the things on the list I put in my last post are still the same.
I like writing lists, it helps me to focus on what needs doing. But sometimes those lists of things to do need doing over and over, so I’m not beating my self up for them being there again.
I wrote a list and put it on the fridge about two weeks ago. The three things on this list that are the same as last time are; clean the girls and little man’s bedrooms and sort out my wardrobe.
Now, please understand that the bedrooms have been cleaned and the wardrobe de-cluttered a few times in the last two years, but they are continuous jobs that need doing, and ones that I don’t relish doing. I have to have help because I can’t pick things up on the floor. Well, maybe one or two things but it hurts. Try it yourself, pick a few things up without bending your knees and see how far you get. It makes you dizzy too!
I’m looking forward to getting the girls room done because we have some new bed linen and toy boxes. The Little Man’s room is fairly tidy (why is it that both my boys are far more tidier than my three girls?) but I want to move things around and fit in some new furniture.
A new job is to re-decorate the family bathroom. I have a new bathroom cabinet a cupboard and new shower curtain. We have paint for the walls, and new bath mats. But, we’ve had these for over a year now and the bathroom still hasn’t been done. I get so frustrated because if I was well I know I could do it all in a day, I’ve done it before. I even decorated the living room in the old house when I was seven months pregnant with Star. But now I can’t do it and I have to wait for hubby….
and he’s always got something better to do….and he’s a number one procrastinator.
It Drives Me Nuts!
The kids break up from school today, we seem to be a week behind everyone else in the country. We have a day out planned for Monday, but the rest of the week is going to be spent working through my new list and Procrastination is going to be BANNED in our house.
So, give me two weeks and I will be back telling you of all the things we have achieved. Just you wait and see!
Do you procrastinate?
