I has motivations

Guess what? (chicken butt) Remember all the stuff I was boo hooin' about a couple of posts ago? The stuff that I start and never finish? Of course you do. I know you studiously study and take notes on every aspect of my fascinating and titillating existence. Well, I guess admitting my laziness triggered some modicum of shame in my poor battered psyche and girlfriends' done got some shiz done! Yes I have.

I have finished! one page of Silas' scrapbook. The tennis page is done and I've started on the swimming page. And I hope you're happy, I went to Michael's today and spent a bazillion $$ on stuff to do pages for the dogs. This could be showing signs of becoming a full fledged addiction. Please keep me in check.

I programmed speed dials into my crackberry and downloaded my google calendar. I know! There's no stopping me!

I installed the Family Tree Maker software on my laptop and transferred all of my information. I made quite a bit of progress on Sams' side as well. Plus I saw "Heritage" scrapbook stuff and had quite the brainstorm. For Christmas I'll make family tree scrapbooks for the parents and grandparents! Score! Little money, lots of sentimental value.

No progress on the picture organization yet, but I have been taking hundreds for my photography class. Hopefully I'll get those uploaded and ready to torment entertain you with soon. You know, like when you go to someones house and they have you trapped and show you home movies of their vacation. Entertained like that.

Now I wonder. If I confess that I never made it to the kitchen in my spring cleaning, would that inspire me to get that done? Naaah. Better not press my luck.

So are you saying that if you want to get motivated, you simply post a blog about needing to get it done and Wa-LAH you get motivated? This could be a new trick! :)

Well done. I'm exhausted just reading about what you've been up to. I need a nap now!

I made THE LIST last week, and I've actually gotten some things done on it. I keep THE LIST on the table next to my laptop, so that when I'm lollygagging around reading blogs, I start to feel guilty and tell myself if I do JUST ONE THING on THE LIST, then I can do whatever I want. It got the curtains washed and re-hung. Yes it did.

Just found your blog through my sis's blog (Storms Never Last) and oh my are you funny! I'll be back, but not in the scary Arnold way.

Did you just say chicken butt?! I thought I was the only one who annoyed people with that response to a simple question! We are soul mates, my friend.

When you are finished with the flurry of activity on your end, please come organize my life. I know you want to - being that I'm your soul mate n' all.

I had to laugh because the recurring answer to "Guess what" in our household is exactly the same as yours! Guess why? (chicken thigh) LOL.

Can you come over to my house and motivate me?

Meg said...

Glad it's going well!

I really need to get my butt into a photography class, too...

Congrats on getting things accomplished! There is no better feeling...well, ok, there are, but you know what we mean. :o)

You just may have inspired me to get things done, all the little annoying things that need doing. I think I must set aside a day and do them all!
