I’ve had three days off work in a row this week. I cold have used my time wisely, crossed some things off the
little long to do list in my head, but alas that hasn’t happened.
I’ve been a bit lazy. In fact, I’ve been very lazy… and I feel crap for it.
So my word of the week has to be lazy.
There is so much I could have been doing. I have a mental to-do list the length of my arm, it would have been sensible to try and cross some of the things off the list. Instead, I’ve sat around on my bum, thinking about the things I could be doing rather than actually doing them.
Sometimes I think I just shouldn’t sit down in the morning, because when I do the rest of the day is doomed to be rubbish. I take the kids to the school bus at 8.30. Some days I come back and start doing things, and these are generally productive days. Other days I decide to reward myself with a wee coffee,you know, to reward myself for making it out of bed that morning. After the cuppa comes the TV show I have recorded on sky, and then something else comes up. All the while my wet washing sits in the machine from the night before, the breakfast bowls still sit on the kitchen table waiting to be cleared away. I add the tasks to my mental to-do list.
Why is it that one act of procrastination always leads to another? Before you know it, it’s lunch time and you have spent the whole morning on the sofa…
Days like that are OK on the odd occasion. Sunday morning maybe. Certainly not three days in a row when you really have other things to be getting on with. I only have myself to blame though, I haven’t been getting to bed until 1.30 most nights this week, and I’m stumbling out of bed at 6.30 each morning wondering if you can get coffee administered by drip.
I feel annoyed at myself, thinking of all the things I could have done. All of the time I’ve had.
So I’m declaring this week a bit of a write off. It’s ok though, next week is a new week and I can start fresh. I’m going to write some of my to-do list down on to paper instead of storing it on random post-it notes floating around my head. It’s so much easier to get things done when you have a physical list in front of you.
I hope you have all had a more productive week than I have…. Enjoy your weekend my lovelies!
