I am SUCH a Procrastinator

Why do I think I am such a procrastinator, you may ask? Well, please...have a seat, and let me tell you.

  • The daughter of one of my friends had a birthday in early April. Her card is still sitting here.

  • Another friend sent me a very nice letter in the mail, I might add, and I have yet to respond to her. Oh yeah, that letter arrived before Easter. I've yet to even thank her for it.

  • The same friend who sent the letter also sent me an email dated 4/12, with some pertinent questions. Yep, you guessed it. I haven't answered her yet.

  • Another friend has emailed me several times over the last few months. I have yet to answer her. This is especially bad because they've just been smacked with the trickle effect of the downturn in the economy.

  • My sister-in-law's birthday was March 29. That's right...the card is still sitting here, and I don't even have it signed yet. Here's the kicker...they live within shouting distance and we've seen them several times since her birthday.

  • My brother in law's (sister-in-law's husband and Ted's brother) birthday was April 3. SEE LAST BULLET.

  • Their daughter, our beautiful niece Holly, had a birthday on April 16. Again, SEE ABOVE.

  • Another friend who lives in town said for me to call her sometime, and I said I would. Let's see...that was in February of 2008 I believe.

So basically, not only am I procrastinator, but I'm a lousy friend too.

It's not that I don't WANT to take care of these things, but that I just never get around to it.

I definitely need to get my act together.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this....

And on that note, I'm going to leave you with a picture of Joe when he was five years old. One afternoon we went to a small field near my parents' house and flew kites. We both had a great time that day!

Oy, me too. I have an unmailed thank you card sitting here on my desk that should have been sent in December.

Well, soon as you get those cards mailed and that call or two made, come see my posts with some new flowers. A friend loaned me her old digital camera until I can solve my problem with mine. I didn't miss all the tulips, etc. after all!

That reminds me, I need to go get a few cards made and sent off too, including some thank you cards.

I have cross stitch projects from the 80's.

I have iunsent mother's and father's day cards for probably abotu the last ten years - all filed in my "card organizer"!

You would think that since I made cards for a living that I would actually SEND the cards too. Nope - I'm horrible at it! I really wish I was better at this.

Hmmmm...I would rather know you were a procrastinator than find out you were too sick or mad at me to respond. I think everyone feels that way. But this time I refuse to let it take over 20 years to be in touch :o)knowing you procrastinate makes it easier to keep bugging you. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Ohio when school is out...I will call and your pool better be open LOL Love you, T
