This is not about how to procrastinate. I’m sure we all have our own clever ways of not getting to what needs getting to. But I just had an ah-ha moment. And this is it. You are reading actual procrastination right now! I’m sitting here, at this moment, procrastinating!!! (Glad you could join me.)
So what am I avoiding? A back-breaking session in a flower bed that has needed attention for a few years… yes, YEARS. The Hub has been hard at work using the mini- rototiller he gifted me with for Mother’s Day. …a gift I didn’t realize I wanted but evidently he did.
Now we are on the weather-time-crunch schedule. Rains to start up again Sunday night. So this is our window of opportunity to get plants in place for a free watering.
This is part of what I’m facing…
Doesn’t look so bad from this angle but… it is twenty-three feet of 8 inch DEEP, chunked up crab grass roots… which MUST be removed or forever (like our past experience) dealt with. And this is after working on it for a few hours yesterday.
I’m getting dangerously close to having to click publish and declare procrastination time over. I know I’ll be happy with myself later after my fingernails have collected dirt, I’m sweaty, my back aches and the chore is done.
But in the mean time I actually accomplished something even though it’s not what I should be doing… this post!
