#SoCS – Cheers?


I’m so mad at myself. I’ve spent the whole day procrastinating. Problem is, I have too much to do. Strange how that works. So I wonder if I’ll get more done if I open a bottle of wine …

See, thing is, having too much to do makes me uptight. It makes me want to run away and do something I don’t have to worry about getting finished as much. I’m currently (supposed to be) writing two short stories, proofreading my next novel … OH! Did I tell you? I managed to get a really REALLY good deal on a black-and-white-print-only laser printer, and MAN, does it work well! I’ve been using it for various things for the past, like, six weeks or so, and yesterday I printed off my 366-page manuscript and I still have a half-full cartridge of ink … and it’s the one the printer came with! It’s practically already paid for itself! Oh, I’m so happy with it. It’s a Brother … if you’re interested, I can get you the model number.

Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah. And I’ve also been procrastinating on getting this month’s colouring project done THAT HAS TO BE POSTED TOMORROW! Not going to get to admire this one at all. ๐Ÿ˜› And I’ve been putting off writing this post because I didn’t want to open my bottle of wine too early.

But it’s not too early now, is it? Nope. Ten o’clock.

  1. Never too early for a little bit of wine! Cheers! โค


  2. I have procrastinated so much these past few years, I have had to give up a bit. Truth: I feel guilty, but I feel more relief than guilt.
    I am actually fond of Brother in printers AND sewing machines. Ease of use and reliability for both.


    • I’m sure there are things I need to give up. I just have no idea what. Facebook, maybe? ๐Ÿ˜› My excuse is that’s where I’ve found most of my editing business. ๐Ÿ˜›
      Love Brother. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • I’m interested in doubling myself. One of us needs to go to work and bring home the avocados, but the other us needs to color and do puzzles and write… I could even get greedy and say a third of us would be useful for tackling large projects …
        You cannot give up connections when you need connections!


  3. It happens to me all the time. I look around and see all the things I could be doing, and it’s so much, I’m just at a standstill. So, I play computer games instead. I say I’ll do the other stuff ‘tomorrow’ which gets put off, of course. ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers to you for a fun prompt!


  4. Sounds oh sooooooo very familiar!!! LoL.


  5. I understand procrastination, Linda. The list of things I haven’t started is getting long. It’s good to know I’m in good company – cheers!


  6. So I’m not the only one who procrastinates and plays when she has things to do! Thank goodness for that. Cheers.
