I am a time waster. I don't mean to be. I just get distracted easily am basically slow. I am what people call a laid back person so I am not in a hurry I guess. (Except when I am trying to get out the door to leave somewhere because then I am late). For example, yesterday I was cleaning the kitchen. But the newspaper was on the counter so I started reading it. Then I found the lid to the empty ice cream bucket on the counter which reminded me that I needed to put it with the bucket because I was going to use it for Cameron's big wooden string beads. So then I left the kitchen to find the bucket, which I knew was downstairs. I then sorted the beads from the other toys and put them in the bucket and with the lid on, proudly put it on the shelf. I don't know how long it took me to clean the kitchen, but it did get done eventually. I am not sure how many other distrations I had along the way. Cleaning the kitchen should only take like 10 minutes, 15 tops.

I really do try. I have been trying for years. But trying, according to my husband, isn't doing.

I suppose this "time wasting" wouldn't be a problem except that there are so many things I would like to do. As a mother of a busy household there are so many things that I have to do that it leaves little time for the things I want to do. If I would just stick to tasks and hurry myself along and focus, then I would have oodles of time. (maybe not oodles...) So I pledge to work on being more effecient with my time. I am not going to try, but do. Which means I better get off the computer!
