Procrastinating Again

Well, after telling myself to get onto my studies for a number of weeks, I finally got enough time at home in a semi alert condition last week to start to go over the materials we’d been given. Don’t myself see how we’re to finish it all by mid June through work, but if I use it as a training exercise, it should help if I do it through TAFE later. I hope.

I’m going to start to actually go through the exercises and assignments….any minute now. Really.

Since the sun is shining on this side of the house, I have to work in the bedroom, as it should start to thaw out shortly. One must be comfortable, after all, if work is to be done.

Then I had a look at the bedroom and decided that before any work could get done, it really had to be vacuumed, as it would be too annoying otherwise. I’m not the world’s greatest housekeeper. Day-to-day things like bed making, cooking, dishes, laundry, etc, get done, but dusting and vacuuming get put to the bottom of my list--until the appropriate time, of course.

Well, once you go to all the trouble of getting the vacuum out, you really shouldn’t waste your enthusiasm by stopping there, so a quick vacuum all about obviously needed to get done.

Then I remembered we have a supper after church tonight, so I have to make a slice. Honestly, I really do. So, the oven’s now on heating up. It takes a half an hour to warm up, as it’s a very old oven, which leaves me with a half an hour to fill.

It’s a bit useless to get stuck into the assignments for such a limited period of time, as it would totally disrupt my chain of thought, so I thought I’d better get on here and do some blogging, which I don’t think I’ve done for about a week.

One thing that has always totally annoyed me about my son is the number of excuses he can find for not getting down to his studies. For a minute today, I started to worry that maybe he was getting it from me. Then, to my relief, I realised that this wasn't so at all, for the obvious reason that my excuses are perfectly valid.
