Today I Love Productivity NOT Procrastination! Slice of Life 29 of 31

     It is a well known and firmly established fact that I am the QUEEN of Procrastination.  If I could put off breathing to do something I found more interesting at the time, I probably would.  I am easily distracted.  I am impulsive.  And yes, I can be at times a little hyperactive.  My sixth grade teacher told me that I came into her class scatter-brained and she'd be (bleeped) if I left that way.  Surprise, Mrs. H!  I'm still that way!  (This was, in her defense, in response to my request to sit next to the new cute boy who had just joined our class.  I think she was afraid I would rub off on him.)  
     But today...ooh, more procrastination for me!  Today I achieved.  I was productive.  I stayed the course.  I kept my head down and focused.  I got stuff done!  And...GASP!  I had fun doing it!  Today I accomplished!  In no particular order, today I...

Today I lovelovelovelovelovelove PRODUCTIVITY!



  1. Wow, you make me feel guilty. Tomorrow I hope to get a bunch done!

  2. How good it must feel to have accomplished all of this!

  3. Wow! You had a very busy day, but it still sounds like you enjoyed each part. I love productivity as well, but I must say that I've been making an effort to have some 'do-nothing' days this year. I need time set aside with no plans, just to move in my own rhythm and to see where the day takes me. I suppose each of us seeks a balance between the two: productivity and time to just be.
