Procrastination Pays

Nice and alliterative, hey?

And for my current situation - exactly right.

Well, okay, so procrastination doesn't get blog posts written. Believe me, I've got a good one brewing for the weekend before last when we went to the coast to catch up with my little brother and Giggles. But I have been busy with that slightly over-rated thing called "real life" and haven't taken the time to do more than scurry through a few of my favourite blogs to see what they've been doing. Not sufficient time to say what I've been doing. But I've been enjoying it.

However, for the last couple of evenings I've had a little mental list of things I should have been doing. Dusting and vacuuming the house, for example. I was also going to hang out a load of washing last night so that it would be dry to take in at lunchtime today. And the interior of my car certainly needs some cleaning.

I couldn't be bothered.

Surely 'can't be bothered' is not a good state to be in?

Well, it turns out that a significant part of the eastern part of Australia is undergoing a doozy of a dust storm today.

The chance that I would have felt that warm glow of acheivement if I had got all my work done?

I'm with you. I have felt happily justified all day for not having vacuumed and mopped floors which badly need it. I'm not quite sure how to blame the dust storm for my having suspended toilet training...but I'm working on it.

I love it when sloth is rewarded. :) Unfortunately there is no dust down here in Melbourne so I have no excuse.

Welcome back, by the way.

The dust storm has left me depressed..... here's a tip. Dont leave all your windows open all day when there is a dust storm on the way... so much to clean. Blergh :(

Nice to hear from you though :)

I love that it's given me a quiet afternoon to work (and play) on the computer and actually get stuff done that is not just child entertainment.

Oh, you smarty pants. Clear skies today, though, so get to work!

I can still smell the dust in the air, have to get out the duster tomorrow... maybe

When it comes to housework, procrastination always pays. For the longer you leave it between cleanings, the fewer times in your life you actually have to clean.

Lol. I liked this post - you're right, you wouldn't have felt a warm glow of acheivement with a dust storm brewing. Sort of like washing the car and Katrina arrives...
