Anyway, Jade Lady comments, on my blog and in private email, that I inspire her. It always astonishes me when someone tells me that -- somehow I never seem to think I could inspire anyone, I'm just me.
But JL's "Carpe Diem" post has inspired me. Seize the day, get 'er done!
I am a procrastinator par excellence. I could probably win the State Championship. Which State should be no problem.... living in our RV, we hit all of 'em.
Like, just now, I walked past the cat box, noted that it needs new litter (*sniff*), and continued past it to the computer. Actually I noticed it yesterday, too. The cat box would have taken 3 minutes and it would have been done. Now it's still hanging over my head.
This morning is rainy and muddy and we work-campers can't continue for now in our fire-ant-infested field (see my last post, "Ants in My Pants"). So I have the "Diem" to:
- Clean the litter box
- Straighten the living room (which consists of a sofa and keyboard-piano, shouldn't take that long to fix up, eh?)
- Do laundry (2-hour undertaking, have to walk down to the laundry room 3 times)
- I could probably even run, while the laundry's in the washer....
......before I head out to mind the munchkins at the daycare center, where I've given my 2-week notice by now (we're heading back north April 1.) Actually I didn't procrastinate on that one. I turned it in a week ago, with 3 weeks' notice.... I couldn't stand it hanging over my head making me feel guilty. Now they know, and it's a big relief.
I already "practiced" for the AT today by getting up and getting started even though it was raining. (Knowing we wouldn't be working outdoors, I could have stayed in bed, and felt like it.)
Thanks for the push, Jade Lady!
