I am a procrastinator. I know my sister is too, but I don’t think our mother is and I don’t think our father was. How in the hell did we come to be procrastinators? How did I get this way? It makes life more stressful, more chaotic, more …. I don’t know. Words often fail me, it seems. I just know that I am frazzled feeling today and that it’s my own fault that I’ve ended up this way.
I start my eating healthier tomorrow. I will give up soft drinks and everything I can find with high fructose corn syrup in it. The commercials may say that it’s fine in moderation, but it seems that everything I eat or drink has it, so I don’t get it in moderation. I get it in maximization! I’m nervous about this because I haven’t planned as well as I had hoped to for this major life change. OK, I’m physically “shaking it off” right now. Did you get the visual? I know that I’ll make mistakes. I should just accept that and go on — doing the very best I can do and be done with it. So, on to the next part of the subject.
I’ve started a new blog that I’ll write about my journey to lower weight and better health. If you’d like to read along, here is the link to Lost in Weight and Losing It . I’m sure I’ll mention things about it occasionally on here, but I’ll really try to post all of it on the other blog, so as not to bore you with all of that.
I am also teaching a hand quilting class at the new quilt shop on Tuesday. I am not as prepared as I should be. This makes me very nervous. It’s a new shop and my first time to teach there. I’ve procrastinated until now about starting to gather my supplies and wits about me for the class. I know I don’t need to have these things near me yet, but it makes me feel better if I do have everything found and together and I don’t at this point. Lord help me to stop procrastinating!
My blog has also been acting very odd today. At one point, I started typing words and they came out in Hindi! Other times, the links showed in the body of the post and the font looked different from what it normally looks. I hadn’t changed a thing. I had to go into the setting section to have it stop the translating into Hindi. I don’t know what’s going on. I just know that I’m already frazzled and busy. I don’t need weird today.
