I’m Done…


This morning I did something that I’ve been putting off for a long time…even as I type that…I realize how many things that could have been…seems I have the slightest tendency to procrastinate…especially when it’s something that I don’t want to do in the first place…

Case in point…cleaning the wooden blinds…they’ve been dusty for a while…I tried ignoring them…that didn’t help…I bought one of those little blind cleaner things…but…since I never took it out of the package…it hasn’t helped either…it’s in the laundry room now…

You get my drift…it’s been a while…so…why did I decide to do it this morning…what happened to spur me on…honestly…I’m not real sure…but…last night…the neighborhood dogs were all barking and just wouldn’t quit…that kind of spooked me a bit…so…after making certain that all the doors were locked…including my bedroom door…which I never even close…I closed the bedroom blinds…again something I never do because I like the light to come through in the morning…and…where my house is…and what it would take to look in my windows…well…I just take my chances…

Anyway…this morning…as I was opening the blinds…I couldn’t help but notice all the dust…so…without really thinking…I took a tissue…and wiped some of it off…it came off much more easily than I had anticipated…I wiped some more…I liked what I saw…or didn’t see…I got the Swiffer duster…that window was clean in about two minutes…I went to the other one…same thing…I quickly made my rounds…bathroom…kitchen…dining room…living room…guest room…I was done…

I was shocked…it was just like the commercials on TV…I kept thinking…I’m done…I’m done…and I had to wonder…should I read a book…take a quiz to see if I’m Mamalicious…or squirt my husband with a water gun…

Bertha…said…no…just blog about it…then she said some more stuff about the wisdom of doing things when I feel inspired…instead of trying to force myself to do them when I don’t…and how much better things seem to go…

Hmmm…I think she’s right…after all…I’m done

  1. Maybe this is contagious! I did my ceiling fans, which were rich in fur!! I walked by them daily for months now, thinking “I should clean them.” Of course the fur flew and then the vacuum had to make an appearance. And while it was out, I also moved the fridge!
    It’s about 75 degrees today so Spring cleaning in January is not so odd after all!!

    • Arlene…we have the same weather…gonna be 42 tomorrow afternoon…yikes! Wow…you are getting a lot done…I think my fans are clean…but just in case…don’t think I’ll look at them today…LOL!

  2. I’m a world class procrastinator over here too. I keep looking at the front walk that needs shoveling after last night’s storm, and then longingly at the story I’m working on. I think I have to shovel the sidewalk though, the mailman gets upset and stops delivering the mail if I don’t. But, I’ll wait until it gets 2 or 3 degrees warmer this afternoon, and work on the story until the inspiration is spent. Have a wonderful day, Jane.

    • Donna…I’m not sure I consider waiting for a bit of warmth before shoveling to be procrastination…LOL! Enjoy your writing…and just know that the moment you decide to shovel will the be best one!
