You even have one of those days where Procrastination stops by uninvited?
Tuesday started off a normal day. I was a bit tired after a busy weekend and Monday we had a fun time having Biker Witch and her Biker Hubby over for dinner. They helped by bringing two dishes; my favorite vegetables and one of Wizard’s favorite desserts. Dinner prep and the cooking wasn’t hard at all, but I had to add more things in like making a bruschetta because, well, I’m me, LOL So by Tuesday I was a bit tired, but once I did my morning walk, I loosened up and was ready to take on the day. I had plans of grocery shopping, floor washing, a second walk and trying a new short yoga class that looked fun.
Things were going according to plan and I was putting away groceries, when I decided to boil some extra eggs for quick breakfasts. Sometime later — 2 minutes? 20 minutes? I remembered the eggs. I now have boiled eggs in my fridge that could be anywhere between soft boiled to ancient fossils. My breakfast tomorrow will be an adventure But still, that’s a minor glitch, and I wasn’t procrastinating, just distracted by…something…I don’t remember what.
By then it was almost 11 so obviously I should wait until after lunch to clean the floors. Looking back, I could have done it, but something was whispering in my ear to wait until after lunch. So I cleared email and finally figured out an AOL problem. Then I had to think why I even still have AOL???? So I made a mental list of why…
And wait, this isn’t important. I have a G-mail account too, and why am I wasting time thinking about AOL? So i started thinking about lunch instead. I wandered into the kitchen and found leftover beautiful, colorful vegetables and rice from the previous night and turned lunch into a cooking project. I cut the veggies, made a stirfry, added the rice, then some cashews I had on hand and topped it with left over bruschetta. Sounds odd (it probably is weird, LOL) but it was good. Again, more time slips by and now there’s no time for an extra walk.
But I washed the floors! Finally! However, I had to cut out the yoga plan due to time, but I had over an hour to write a blog. Yay! I got my sparkling water and sat down to think up a brilliant blog. While pondering, I thought, “I’ll just take a quick look at FB…wait what’s this reel? A dog????” A minute or 60 later, I looked up and realized I’d been watching FB reels for an hour! Most of them were dog videos
Then Wizard needed the computer.
And so it wasn’t until late (for me) last night that I was thinking, Why haven’t I written a blog? It’s not hard, what happened? And that’s when I realized that it wasn’t my fault, I clearly had an unexpected visitor from Procrastination!
Has this ever happened to you?
