I’m a Terrible… bored now, brb… PROCRASTINATOR

You may be wondering why I didn’t finish the March Photo-a-Day Challenge or you may know me well enough to have expected this outcome.  Here’s what happened.

We got to Day 15 and hit a snag.  See, Day 15 was “Car”.  I considered this throughout the day but could not come up with anything worth sharing.  Then I got discouraged and quit.  Lather, rinse, repeat – the story of my life.  If I’m going to put in the work to succeed at something, I have to really want it.  It’s why I graduated second to last in my class at Bible College (because someone beat me out for the very bottom spot) but carried a 3.8 in nursing school.  It’s the reason I read only one of the assigned books in my C.S. Lewis class and then read all of them the following summer.  I’m obstinate (my early childhood ed professor was convinced I had ADD and/or Oppositional Defiance Disorder), I don’t handle authority well and maybe I’m just snobby enough to not bother with things that don’t interest me.  Mix in the depression and other assorted mental health disorders and you have a perfect storm of QUIT.

So I’m picking up the Photo Challenge again but I may not do every single one.  We’ll see.  Here is the April Schedule from Fat Mum Slim:
Today’s photo is “Mail”.

A care package I have yet to mail

These are the contents of a package I put together to send to my friend who lives in the computer (her computer is in Chile).  Funny thing is, I set out to mail her some coffee LAST AUGUST.  Don’t worry, each time my mom brings me more coffee (every other week or so), I replace the bag I’m intending to ship so it’s fresh.  And that “Very Late Holiday Card”?  It’s one of 150 that I addressed and never mailed LAST NOVEMBER.  I’m thinking of doing a “Christmas in July” thing because what else can you do with last year’s holiday cards?!


About Just Vegas

I'm a 30-something married SAHM which means the nightmare scenario that plagued my early 20's has become reality. Funny thing is, I kinda like it. I have 3 lovely daughters who are educated at home and at a part-time alternative school. I love animals and I love people (in the general sense, not everybody all the time). I have no income to speak of, I'm not crafty and I hate cooking. My skills include reading the internet, watching tv on the internet and conversing with people on the internet. I'm an armchair philosopher, spiritualist, agnostic, feminist, liberal, activist, political pundit and tv critic.

    I love that you’re doing your photos again, and being easy on yourself. You can always look at me (posting ZERO photos) and feel better. ; )

    Love your idea of sending Christmas in July cards. Because we always go out-of-town for the holidays, then it seems like my schedule is off for 3 weeks (preparing to leave, being gone, and recovering), so I never have my act together to send holiday cards. I always aspire to sending New Year’s cards, Valentine’s Day cards, etc. I “might” be able to handle Christmas in June cards. July is probably out for me, because we usually go back to KC for the week of 4th of July. Sort of a repeat in July for me of December. And again usually in August for a trip to visit my in-laws in Santa Rosa, CA.
