A Minor Case o' Aiiieee!

It's 1330 hrs and I'm still workin' on the coffee, haven't hit the shower, and the blog-rounds are only half-done as we speak.  On top o' that I have company comin' this weekend and have housecleaning and grocery shopping to do.  I need a haircut, too, but that ain't gonna happen today, either.

Is this a First World Problem or just a simple case of acute and possibly terminal laziness?  Enquiring Minds™ wanna know.

  1. I'm going with "acute and possibly terminal laziness."

    I swear, Buck...as wonderful, and decent, and respected, and mildly successful as my Daddy is, the man is the King of procrastination.

    I've had to fight it my whole life, and know it to be genetic at the root. I've "trained" myself out of most of it (due to necessity), but MAN!!!!!!It's a tough fight that I often lose.

    Especially when it comes to the "haircut" thing.

    Maybe I ought to back off on the "terminal laziness" deal, though. Daddy don't have a lazy bone in his body, nor do any of his chirrens. But, we ALL seem to be able to focus our energy on more pleasant tasks than the ones that currently really need doing (from time to time).

    I think it's probably just a temporary laziness you're going through, which shall disappear when the pressure is really on.

    Hope you have a good visit with your "company!"

    1. I have to agree with ya on the procrastination vs. lazy thang, coz I was in NO way lazy in the days before I got retarded. Just to update ya, we did the bare minimum required where the shopping thang is concerned, makin' a three-item quick hit in the grocery store after a stop at the likker locker to replenish the beer inventory. As I said: the bare minimum, and that will apply to the housework, too... AFTER Happy Hour.

      In re: company... it's family, actually. DIL Erma and the grandchilluns will be in town this weekend.

    1. Heh. If they're on the premises they'll have NO choice in the matter. We make allowances for a lot o' thangs in life, but we do have our priorities.

  6. Nowadays, Joyce and I have this saying we fall back on when we feel any kind of pressure to do something in a hurry...It's just three little words: We are retired.

    Oddly though, in preparing for my career and the career itself, I always liked having an objective, externally imposed deadline to keep me honest and on track.

    1. You and Joyce... and you during your working days... work(ed) it exactly as I do. I find it amazing these days to realize how much "things" really DON'T matter; it's the people in your life that are important.
