IS THIS SPRING?
In the last two days, I have been preoccupied and haven't been able to devote more time to my blog as well as read and respond to comments left on my blog. Is this August? Well, why am I Spring Cleaning? My sister, said " Aren't you a little behind in months to Spring Clean"? Have you ever did something that made no sense and then decided to go forward to address the issue? As much, I loved my Mother, you won't catch me at 4 a.m. cleaning the house. The word of today is PROCRASTINATION.. PROCRASTINATION, according to Roget's Thesaurus, means to hesitate, a play for time,stall, slackness. So why do we PROCRASTINATE ? We PROCRASTINATE for different reasons;to delay to make a better decision about an issue, laziness, fear, anger ex. husband pushing wife to clean up the kitchen,and changing priorities. Is PROCRASTINATION GOOD or BAD? It could both,if we have to make a decision that will affect others ex. relocating to another city. This would be a decision that isn't taken lightly. To delay paying a bill, which could affect you having or not having electricity. Let's procrastinate and we our out of clean underwear. When traveling, we might delay making arrangements in order to find the less expensive air fare. So, why am I spring cleaning in August? I, know that I've seen this issue to be less important than other issues. I, also know that I go NUTS and won't stop and will do more than I planned.My house is 2400 sq. feet. The size requires me to pull out more cleaning products, rags, mop as well as a bunch of other items. Getting older, as much as I try to keep things together there's the problem ,did the mop run off with the broom? I thought I put the furniture polish over there. Where is the furniture polish? So far, I've been working for two days, and still have plenty of housekeeping to do.It's tempting to give up. Can I, just take one day off and will I go back "on track"? I, remember I had a saying,"I'll move so I won't have to SPRING CLEAN". This is my 5Th. house that I have bought and occupied in my hometown. No, I'm not planning to move unless it's to Texas to be near our granddaughter and her parents. I, have put photos with this post. Note, the dogs in the kitchen, no table, it's getting refinished.Oh! I forgot, is anyone interested in pantie hose? My husband has said on a no. of occasions" you buy things that you already have". Back to the pantie hose, note the Great selection , I think I have over 20 pairs of hose. I lost track,and pantie hose is important. So the pantie hose shop is open for business. I, think,I'll stop buying hose. This might be another reason to Spring Clean so I will not forget what items I have in "bulk". Time soon to "hit the hay" another day tomorrow to continue my quest. As you are reading this post, what issue do you tend to PROCRASTINATE? Will try to read some posts on other blogs, if I'm not dead or have fallen asleep in the closet I'm cleaning
