My friends and I locally have a tradition. Rather than exchanging Christmas Cards you drop off freshly baked goods. Some make tasty breads while others make yummy cookies. We received countless sweet treats and warm wishes. Planning ahead at the beginning of December I bought lots of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey Kisses, and rolls of Pillsbury gingerbread cookie dough. The PB cups are gone b/c of Chris' slow raiding of the bags, the dough sits sadly in my refrigerator and the kisses will be finding a new purpose. What do you think my friends will think if they get Christmas cookies in March?
Yes, my name is Francisca and I'm a serial procrastinator! I really do try to be on the ball but I've always been this way. Working I've always had to follow the Franklin Covey rules so I don't miss deadlines and I keep piles moving. Unfortunately I've never learned this type of planning for the rest of my life! This is why meals are never made, grocery shopping is spotty, and yes, I forgot to put my son's birthday party together.
I'm repenting! I planned Harm's party today and I made the cupcakes for Harm's class tonight instead of trying to bribe Miriam our nanny to do it tomorrow morning for me. I caught up on all my old Facebook messages. I even bought Chris' Valentines day gift for the first time before February 14.
But I'm still not there yet... I was supposed to clean either my office, closet, or the garage today. I need to file for Social Security Disability for Rachel. Etc. etc. etc. Honestly though eating stale popcorn and chicharones, watching a "My Fair Wedding" marathon with Chris and browsing big boy bedding sounded like so much fun. How could I resist? When I'm crying on this blog about not being ready to move or whatever else I've procrastinated on at least I had a peaceful Sunday afternoon!
