"Procrastination is like a credit card...

... it's a lot of fun until you get the bill." -Christopher Parker

I don't know about you, but I find this to be oh so true for me. I can be a terrible procrastinator when it comes to some areas of my life. Like cleaning the house (which I kind of hate)- going to the gym (which really I need) or even historical sewing (which I actually really love). Whereas other things I simply do not procrastinate on EVER. Like paying my bills (bleh) or filing taxes (double bleh).

What is up with that?

Well, I'm trying to not be such a procrastinator anymore. I made a schedule for cleaning my house. I've built in historical sewing time to my life on a weekly basis (with monthly sewing dates with friends to keep me honest). I'm also hoping if I continue to post my successes (and inevitably, failures) on this blog that it will keep me honest, too.

Now if I could just get to the gym...

How do you all deal with the ugly procrastination monster?


  1. I tend to use 'productive procrastination' I don't feel like doing the dishes, so I do some sewing. I don't feel like sewing, so I organize my beads. I don't get any closer to doing what I'm supposed to be doing, but at least I feel like I'm moving forward.

    1. OooOo. I like that! I think I may try this out next time I want to least then I'll be getting something done!


I would sincerely love to hear your thoughts on all this, so please feel welcome to comment here :-)
