Anything to Avoid my Chores

picture is from farmersmarketonline dot com

I'll do anything else when I have chores staring me in the face. I'm incorrigible! But I do usually perform, eventually, when deadlines loom (such as a wedding) and pressure is increasing (time to get the house ready is shrinking). So I have not yet given up on myself.

Today, however, just about takes the cake. I have been saving recipes from a quilty group I'm part of. This has been over a number of Years. Today, suddenly, it was imperative that I start organizing these recipes and start preparing a cookbook to sell as a fundraiser.

Ha! Is there some house cleaning to be done? You betcha! That's why the cookbook is suddenly so urgent to get done. Incorrigible... that's the word.

Today is ONE MONTH from my son's wedding. Wheee! It's fun, exciting, and I'm starting to feel the pressure. One of these days (I hope) I can report to you that the house has been totally cleaned and prepped. Just watch (and wait, and listen, and please be patient with me)!

Gosh, you sound just like me. I sewed my mother-in-law outfit and it got done just two days before the big day. I was doing good (it's usually the night before - shameless.) I remember washing the kitchen floor just before company was coming over too.

Oh, Carol, it is WHOLE month away. Your house will get dirty by then anyway if you clean it now. See? Don't you feel better now? ;)
