Am I the only one that has things sitting around the house that are just waiting to get done? Not major things, I know there are always things like laundry and home improvement that need to take care of. I'm talking more about the little things - the ones that are so insignificant that you just keep putting them off because they really aren't that big of a deal and they are really easy to do and won't take very long. That's the thing - they won't take very long, yet some of them have been sitting around for several months. Let me show you what I mean:
Christmas presents that I found when I was putting the wrapping stuff away. They just need to be mailed, but instead, they are sitting on the dresser in one of the guest rooms. (Amy, I swear I was going to mail it but have decided not to for reasons which cannot be disclosed at this point in time.)
Other examples include:
Sorting the many greeting cards that I buy when I'm hanging out in the card aisle or when they are on sale. (Found some sweet deals at Papyrus while at the Houston Galleria, I was very excited about that.) I got this cute little portfolio so that I could sort them by Birthday/Just Because/Baby Shower, etc. Seriously? That would take like 5 minutes. But eh - I'll do it as soon as I get around to it.
I dog-ear magazines when I see a recipe or gift idea or something I like. So now I have this pile of Glamour, Redbook and Rachael Ray magazines that I need to go through again and cut stuff out of. It is growing by the day, but I'll get around to it soon.
The boyfriend used to have a room where he hung all of his race medals and pictures. When he remodeled, they had to be taken down. Well, I was around when it was time to redecorate, and the room that was formerly known as "The Bragging Room" is now just a guest room. But I feel kind of bad about that, because he is a very good athlete and has lots of memorabilia to show for it. So, I decided I would make the storage/laundry room into a new bragging room. For now, the pictures are collecting dust. I'll hang them soon,as soon as I have a free weekend.
I've been in school for almost two months. Yet my textbooks and assorted resources are just sitting in a pile, waiting to be organized. I even bought a brand new copy of the APA manual, which I haven't even opened. I just fake my way through it and it is working so far. I'll get it organized before the semester ends - you guessed it.... just as soon as I get around to it.
Just curious if there is anyone else that has these piles hidden somewhere in their house. Maybe I will get off of the computer and go take care of one of them. Ha, right.
