Procrastination: A Case Study

What I need to do: Begin writing all the bread-and-butter thank-you notes I owe persons who came to Mom's funeral, sent memorial donations, and so forth. I even put myself on what I thought was a fairly gentle schedule: Five a day; just do five a day.

What I did tonight instead: Took an old toothbrush and scrubbed rust stains off my bathroom tile grouting.

Well...it's one way of getting me to scrub the bathroom tiles.

do you do requests?

find your blog more than helpful...

P.S. (an after-thought) said...

I've heard of family slogging through that task together....is there anybody to share that with you?

Kathryn: I am not worthy...

Harbour...Sadly, I don't do requests for cleaning other people's bathrooms (let's just say you'd have to be a committedly Very Special Friend willing to reciprocate in some very special way). If you're just asking if I do requests in general, though -- if asked nicely I've been known to recite the poem at the end of the Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin" -- you know, Breathe deep the gathering gloom..., etc., etc. And, as a previous post noted, I am happy to do my happy chicken impersonation at any time. Because it's a happy sound, and more people should hear it.

P. Softly: One of the downsides of only childhood -- and, really, despite my whingeing on my blog, there really aren't many -- is that, no, there's no one to help. But I'll get them done; the recipients are just going to have to be patient. I am absolutely cashing in my sympathy points here.
