It’s so funny …. or is it ironic? Procrastination.

Here I am, procrastinating on packing for my move to Florida; from making those few important calls; even procrastinating on eating, because once I’m done breakfast, I really don’t have an excuse for not doing the other things.

(Is it “procrastinating on,” or “…from”?)

(Does that question mark belong inside the quotation marks? Or outside?)

(Should I have used those semicolons?)

(You’re procrastinating again).

Oh, let’s face it. There are a number of things I could do to procrastinate even further.

Here’s how it works. As I said, procrastinating on breakfast leads into lunch time, and we all know that those offices will be closed from 12 to 1, thus further delaying my completion of those important calls!

Packing: What it is, actually, is re-packing. And I can’t start re-packing til the phone calls are done, else I will be so engrossed in the task I’ll forget to get back to the phone calls.

What I think is high-larious is the fact that right now I am using writing to procrastinate on the other things I’m supposed to be doing.

Whereas, ordinarily, I will use other things to procrastinate on writing.

Isn’t it ironic?

(Would that really qualify as “irony”?)

(Thinks about looking up Alanis Morissette song, “Isn’t It Ironic”)

So what methods do you use to procrastinate? And how do you fool yourself into thinking you’re not?

Answer quick, so I can procrastinate some more!

    I like the question, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” The only way I can ever figure it out is to break things down into smaller steps, figure that the process is going to take longer than I anticipate (even if I’m trying my best), put on some peppy music (I like Bluegrass for that (make sure the following is on your playlist….) “Gone at Last” by Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9ys4WnGrv8 , Michael Cleveland (Just won the 2015 International Bluegrass Music Award for best fiddle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEXH5i-5BTM , Ricky Skaggs “Country Boy”…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ri_YvesIahA , Ricky Skaggs “Uncle Pen”…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ri_YvesIahA , Some people I’ve never heard of, but slightly peppy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DksfYL2J85w ) So Kathy, if you can’t get this wrapped up listening to that line-up, hate it, but…Lol! Love ya and hang in there!
