My Name is Michelle, and I'm a Procrastinator

May 31, 2012

Can you believe it's the end of May already? How did that happen? It seems like only yesterday that it was April, and now it's almost June, which means it's almost the middle of the year!  This means that half of 2012 is gone. Finished. Over. Kaput. Done. The middle of the year means that I should have gotten a number of the things on my 2012 to-do list crossed off. Um. Yeah, not so much.
Procrastinator: (noun) Someone who postpones work (especially out of laziness or habitual carelessness).
Sigh. There should probably me a picture of me beside that definition. By my rather generous count I've crossed 5 out of 28 things on that list. That's a measly 18%. I now have 30 days to cross a bunch of stuff off my list. Do you think I can get anywhere in neighbourhood of 30% complete? (Let's be honest - I don't think I have any hope of accomplishing half my list at this point).

Anyways, it's time for my monthly 'I bought myself flowers just because post'. As usual I've waited until the very last day of  the month to do it (see above definition for an explanation).

This month I went with roses. They're always beautiful and classic. I chose them because I wanted to use my small silver vase, and I loved the pale pink hue (I was originally looking for Peonies, but the ones for sale looked rather droopy).

Why are stems on roses so long? Does anyone actually not cut the stems?

Hopefully I'll get some projects completed in the next 30 days. At the very least I hope to be able to complete the refinishing of my new console. What about you? Do you have a list that you're having trouble crossing things off of? Am I alone in my procrastination?

  1. I am right there with you on this one. I am trying to break the habit, but I never seem to get around to it. ;)

  2. Good Lord this post just gave me anxiety because IT'S HALF WAY THROUGH 2012 AND I STILL DON'T HAVE ANYTHING DONE AAAAARRRRRGGHHHH!
    Deep Breath.
    OK, better. Kinda. I think I will join you in the picture beside the dictionary definition.
    Beautiful roses, BTW!

  3. Hahaha! Hmmm - I should probably add 'Stop procrastinating' to my list. Maybe later ;)

  4. Oops - sorry. Didn't mean to cause anxiety. We still have 30 days until the official middle of the year. That's lots of time. Right?

  5. K, 30 days seems like LOTS of time. Feel much better now! Will worry about this tomorrow :-)

  6. Aside from freaking out about the year being half done... I love those roses, they're stunning!

  7. I love the idea of buying yourself flowers once a month, just because. I always hope that the husband might step up and do that for me but, well... that doesn't happen that often. :P

    I try not to make lists like that 'cause I know I'll never get them done. I don't know what's worse... making the list with good intentions and failing or never making the list at all - failure from the start... Good luck crossing things off!

  8. I never used to cut the stems when I was in my early 20's...I was so not with it!

  9. I just can't figure out why they sell roses with such long stems - do people really have vases that are that tall?
