Responsibility Reschmonsibility


As I sit here refusing to get out of my bed a long list of responsibilities is running through my head. Incessant. Then, I look over and see my book and think to myself, "Self, wouldn't it be awesome to stay in bed all day and read this book?" Then I answer myself, "Yes. Yes it would."

But then my belly gets queasy with anxiety over procrastination, and I wimp out. This is me not wimping, but this is also me not at all sure where to begin! I need a life coach. Where is Jenn Russo when I really need her?! BAH! I think if she were here she would say, "Let's start by getting out of bed. Get dressed and do SOMEthing with that hair- for the sake of everyone with eyes, please. Then, make your bed, cause if you don't I will be thinking about it all day. Next we will eat breakfast, get coffee, and prioritize." Maybe I should just hang a picture of her next to my bed. Highly organized people offend me. OKAY FINE they don't; I am totally jealous of their self control. I heart Jenn Russo AND her organization skills.  So, this isn't a picture of her; I don't have a picture of her because she is all the way in Las Vegas, but this drawer is probably in her house. It looks like something she would do.

Thanks for the motivation, JR. I am going back to bed.

I want a drawer like that! Why don't my drawers look like that?!?!?

Okay, so is it bad that I totally started giggling while typing the above sentence with a mental picture of 1920's style "drawers"??? hehe

We are soul mates. I did stay in bed all day with my book yesterday. I am claiming yesterday as my Sabbath since we didn't really get one with the past weekend. I <3 you friend. You make me smile.
People who have drawers like that, do NOT have lives! I am convinced. At least that's what I tell myself to make my Self feel better.
