I got a little lazy about my word "go" last weekend. This is how my day started off yesterday.
That is SO 2009. And 2008. 2007, 6, 5, 4 . . . 1992. Since this is where I ended up by Monday morning after a weekend of procrastinating, my whole day was like this. At 2:55, I was standing in Wal Mart trying trying to decide what side dish and dessert to make for my bible study group last night. My to-do list between 2:55-5:20 when I was to leave was:
pick Caelan up from school at 3
make dinner for my family
make the side dish and dessert
do dishes so I didn't come home to de ja vu of my morning
finish the book we were reading for the bible study
I was 15 minutes late picking Caelan up
Chipotle Pork Stew was simmering on the stove when I left
the kitchen was clean
Cheesy Corn Casserole and killer Pinapple Cake left with me
I read the last page of the book as my ride pulled in the driveway
Too close for comfort to that unorganized girl that used to reside in me. It's such a distant memory in my mind. I sent her packing a whole month ago. If I could only go back to 1992 and tell that girl, "Do your dishes before bed and your whole life will be instantly transformed into a fairy tale existence."
Oh who am I kidding? This is what I woke up to this morning.
But I still have 2 projects to do for Fiskars before tomorrow night. Old habits die hard. And since I haven't figured out where to redeem my empty-sink-in-the-morning tickets for a magic wand, I'm going to have to resign myself to continuing to work harder at this. And a late night tonight. But I'm not giving up!
