It's Wednesday, March 4, which means...

The definition of my topic today, according to Wikipedia is:

Procrastination -  the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before a deadline.


 I was so proud of myself for going to Oyster Creek Park this morning and walking 3 miles. The way my mind works is that should carry me through the rest of the week…but I digress. Having my chested puffed out and headed home I remembered today, the first Wednesday of the month, was blog post day for IWSG. Well flip! 

I could have written it over the weekend or even last week…yesterday would have been acceptable, but nooooooo. I’d like to say I just plain forgot, but that would be a lie because I thought about it over the weekend, last week…and yesterday.

I consider myself to be one of those “fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants” gals, although my broomstick doesn’t seem to function unless it’s on fire.

Remember the song Anticipation by Carly Simon?

My version:
Pro-cras-ti-nation, Pro-cras-ti-naaaa-tion
Is making me late
Is keeping me waiting…

On an end note, I find that most tasks do get done and everything works out just fine...with the exception of completing my next novel…



  1. I'm quite opposite. I can't procrastinate, because then I'll obsessively worry and not enjoy the thing I'm doing instead of the thing I should be doing. I've known many a procrastinator though! Maybe do half and half. One thing you need to do, one thing you want to do, need to, want to... get a little balance in there :)

    1. I've heard of people like you! I really like the half and half suggestion. Balance...will look up the word:)
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I loved this post, Terry! Procrastination comes naturally to me! I was finishing my post up after midnight, LOL! I thoroughly enjoyed your humor and your images! I'm one of the IWSG co-hosts today, and it's such fun member blogs I haven't discovered before! Have a great day!

    1. Fundy Blue, glad you are able to enjoy my humor. Can't seem to write much without it and LOVE using images as I'm such a visual gal. Thanks for stopping by and have fun being a co-host!

  3. Oh how I love Carly Simon (we always did have similar music taste MamaT :) and oh how I also love to procrastinate. Boy am I hating myself for that now!

    1. You walked into the party
      Like you were walking onto a yacht
      Your hat strategically tipped below one eye
      Your scarf, it was apricot...

      Love her too! And I've done it again for April...procrastinated
      Love you girlie...:)
