Procrastination At It's Finest!

It is now 10:24 am on my Writing Wednesday when I purposely stay home from work to give a whole day to my writing venture. Have I written anything so far today? What do you think? I am sitting here in my dirty hair and bathrobe with an empty coffee cup and cereal bowl next to me. The only way this could appear to be a productive writing morning would be to allow Facebook comments and talking on the phone about writing to count.

Oh and I also spent a ridiculous amount of time searching for these fun pics to illustrate some good news for you!
Maybe if I did my hair like that....

My specialty!

If I smile they'll think it was done on purpose.

The opposite of Bree is me.

My fun news is that this Sunday is my birthday and instead of going out for an expensive dinner with my sons and their ladies, I have asked them to come to my house and cook a meal for us. I HATE TO COOK, and my DIL and Rocker Son's Girlfriend LOVE TO COOK, so it all works out wonderfully for me!!

They all love the idea and are brimming over with enthusiastic ideas!! 

It's a total WIN - WIN! Happy Birthday to me. If we went to a restaurant it would be over too soon and we'd all go our separate ways. This way they will come over all day! Yay me!

Okay, I think I will go shower and then write. I will! I promise!


  1. What a great birthday idea. It's pretty clear your kids adore you. So special.

  2. It sounds like a great birthday plan.

    I'm sure that your procrastinating is just allowing more ideas to percolate in your brain, right?

    Hugs & love,

  3. Good thinking girl! What a great idea.
    Hope you enjoy your birthday!

  4. You were re-charging your batteries today, that's all :0) I hope you have a wonderful Birthday on Sunday and enjoy that meal!! Sounds like fun!

  5. Early congratulations on your birthday (you 39th, perhaps). And on the planning for the others to cook. Well done!

    About procrastination. Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow, especially if there is a chance someone else will do it for you tomorrow. Surely you've heard of "ghost writers"?

  6. Oh you guys are great encouragers.......or enablers?

  7. Happy Birthday, and um, I hope you got some writing done. :)

  8. One of the best things about having an empty nest is when they all come home for a night, or a weekend!

  9. How wonderful to have your birthday meal cooked in your own home. Better and healtheir food, by far. In case I don't get to on Sunday, Wonderful birthday with your famiy. A marvelous tribute to your life.
    Love and Peace

  10. how nice for family to cook you a meal. happy birthday. rose
