It’s December 16th (oops – it’s past my bedtime!), 17th. In the beginning of the month I started shopping & wrapping. I started sending cards. I started baking. Why am I not finished with any of these things?
It’s not like I’m too busy writing blog posts. I have several drafts staring at me when I log into my dashboard. They suck, so (count your blessings) you won’t see them anytime soon.
What have I been doing instead of these very important things? Honestly? I keep getting distracted on the way to doing them. I just wanted to check my email, then work on the cards. After spending 10 minutes deleting the spam, and another 30 minutes reading my real mail, I made the mistake of catching up on my favorite blogs. 2 1/2 hours later… I am too tired to do any cards, baking, or whatever. Don’t get me wrong – I have a lot of fun and laughs reading the posts of these prolific and talented writers. Which causes the problem in the first place.
On the way to wrapping gifts I need to clear off the kitchen counter. I wrap there because it’s the perfect height for me to work on. This leads to putting this and that away, loading the dishwasher, and wiping down the stove. I never brought out the wrapping paper or ribbons, so I forget my original plan to wrap gifts and I make cookie dough.
Only God knows what I will accomplish
