The Day the Music Died
Things Fall Apart . . . A Riff

Tomorrow . . . Is Another Day





A mystical land where 99% of all human productivity, motivation, and achievement is stored.


Tomorrow . . . always seems like a good day to get something done!  I'm generally a get-things-done kind of gal.  But -- there tend to be certain things that I just . . . put off.  

(For another day.)  

(You know.)

So . . . what's on my list of things I need to do NOW . . . but I just keep procrastinating?

  1. Set up the external hard drive to back up my laptop.  (It's sitting right there.  I just need to hook it up.)
  2. Organize my photo files.  (Oh my god.  Just get this done.)  (And move on.)
  3. Treat the wood floor in the kitchen.  (There is never a convenient time.  Accept this.)
  4. KonMari the craft closet.  (Deep breaths.)
  5. Go through the yarn bins.  (Just do it.)
  6. Call the plumber to fix the broken sink.  (SUCCESS!)
  7. Take down the hideous valance in the library.  (Yes.  After awhile, you just don't notice it any more.  But . . . I'm telling you . . . it's still there.)
  8. Put away the Christmas china.  (Yes.  It's still on display in my china cabinet.)  (This one is so embarrassing. . . )
  9. Write up the dang committee notes and turn them in.  (It will take you . . . oh . . . all of 5 minutes.)
  10. Get out there in the scary front wooded garden and deal with it.  (Take a big shovel.  Dig those problems out.)

How about YOU?  What are you putting off . . . until tomorrow?

There is still a lone Christmas stocking hanging in our family room and it's been there so long I don't always recognize that it doesn't belong there. Then when I do decide I will take it down and put it up in the attic where it belongs, I get distracted before I do it. So, I feel you on the china, and you are not alone.


OMG, I think the Christmas stockings are still hanging at my house!! This is the latest EVER.


See, now I've been sitting here thinking that you are getting everything done in a timely fashion and, well, I feel SO much better now.


I love that you already have one item crossed off! I'm right there with you on 1, 2, 4, and 5.


Oh the weight of committee freaking heavy. Been there done that and procrastinated every single time. I think I'm Christmas free! Thanks for the reminder about the plumber, I'll do that right now too!!


I'm surprised about the external hard drive. That's the easiest thing ever...just do it. Good luck with the craft closet!
Hope you called a reputable plumper, that's all I have to say about that.


You did a great job with action plans for most of the stuff you've put off. (Is just do it an action plan?)

kathy b

Great list.
Weeds are just around the corner here...and I tend to give up and give in. Not this year


You mentioned Kon Marie in your post...I am reading her book right now. I am wondering how it will work. That is why I put going through clothes on my list! We'll see!! I am visiting from Carol's Ten on Tuesday.


I wonder if I can make that my phone screen saver? We will feel so much better when we move some of this crap off our lists, huh?


yes - huge fan of crossing off the done things! photo files is on my list too... but I have a feeling your files aren't manilla folders with multiple envelopes of developed film? I hope they are, though, and you'll let me know how you do it. (and btw, your #1 should've been on my list too...let me know how that goes ;-)


Ha...I love the Christmas Dishes. If it makes you feel any better I still have all of the Easter decorations up. ;-)
