Starting The New Year Off Late

January 3, 2013

New Year 2013.

Yep the New Year is barely started and I’m already procrastinating.

I would love to blame it all on my hubby. After all if he hadn’t hurt his back I would been able to get a lot more done.

I don’t know why but when he is hanging out at home I just don’t seem to get much of anything done. Not housework. Not blogging. Not organizing. The animals are lucky they still get fed.

He doesn’t really get in the way all that much most of the time. He mostly hangs out in the recliner or the bed (when his back was really hurting). But somehow or another when he is home I just can’t seem to concentrate.

Of course it isn’t all him. The housework doesn’t need concentration. There are lots of things to be done that being interrupted wouldn’t hurt…but I haven’t done some of those either.

I did manage to get some dishes washed but only got the fridge cleaned out this morning so now there are MORE dishes waiting.

This doesn’t bode well. If things continue like this I might get all the winter stuff done by summer, and then the summer stuff will be done by winter, and this years goals met by next year…

How are you doing so far this year?

Yea my hubby was talking about organizing the house and losing weight and several other things. I told him there is no way I can do more than one thing. Not even sure about that.

I feel worse if I say I’m gonna and then I don’t than if I never say anything at all.

AMEN! I think it must be surely one of Murphey’s Laws isn’t it? When the man is at home nothing gets done by the woman? I’m the same way and have no excuse.

I had no plans the entire Christmas to New Years week and I planned on getting so much work done. However I got sick and got nothing done so I am so behind where I wanted to be. And I know what you mean about having your husband at home. I can’t get any work done.

Blogging has gone much better since I’ve come up with some goals for where I want the direction of my blog to go.

Around the home..Ha! Cats, kids, and adults are fed…dishes are halfway kept up and laundry is washed but needing folded and put away. Otherwise there’s dust and clutter..slowly but surely getting into the swing again.

I wish I was doing better. I still have everything to keep me organized but now I just need time to use the organizational tools that will then keep me on track in the future. Been busy at it and well, better late then never! :-D
