Procrastination

I complain about tension and stress and yet I often wait until the last moment to get things done.

I AM A PROCRASTINATOR!!!

I am in a recipe swap that is due on Thursday of this week. (We had MONTHS to do this swap!!)

I received the stamp set that I am going to use last week.
Sunday night I cut and mounted the stamps.
This morning I cut the 14 6x6 pages that are my base for the swap.

I don't know what recipe to use, I haven't stamped my images, I don't have a clear idea of what the layout will be, just a gazillion ideas floating in my head.

I have been consumed with my first scrapbook adventure (see previous post) that I can't seem to get anything else done. Only part of that statement is true because I sat mindlessly working on an afghan last night (5 rows) and knitting a scarf (10 rows) trying to think of a good simple recipe that the people in the swap will want to make. The only thing that came out of my "think fest" was 5 rows on the afghan and 10 rows on the scarf and the background paper.
Yippidy Do Da!!

I actually made a list of 10 things that I wanted to complete last night and was able to only complete 3. How sad is that? I need to give myself a quick kick in the bum and get going.

I also need to get myself one of those little dictaphone tape recorders because I come up with my best card phrases and journaling while I am laying in bed. Of course I am too lazy to sit up, turn on the light and write it down so often those great quips and stories get lost in my brain. I wonder if this is how novelists write their novels with little handheld recording devices or if they simply sit down at their keyboard and the muse takes over. I am really not going to ponder this too much because I don't intend to write a novel anytime soon and really need to get back to coming up with a good recipe.

My recipe for myself, get the swaps done, get a load of laundry done, and read my textbook for class on Saturday. If I get these done tonight I will be SOOOOO HAPPY!!!

Wish me luck!
