I am a PROCRASTINATOR!
This kind of weather automatically makes me loose all motivation to be creative or organized and it is a chore to think of what to cook for dinner each night without turning the oven on. Oh did I mention that I am at the age where I get hot flashes? Well. I am!
The other day I made a list of things I have been procrastinating doing since summer hit us right between the eyes! My husband scrawled : "It's the hormones talking" across the top of the page and I guess he is right about that! Most things I have been putting off aren't all that important, like painting the brass chandelier in the dining room, painting the kitchen cabinets, painting some bookshelves on the porch, etc. these are just things to change somethings looks but we can function just fine with the color that they are. You see, our AC was just recently fixed but at 100 plus degree heat indexes it's not like the house gets sooo cool. (high ceilings and old house combined make for heating and cooling challenges) So.... I am not that in to painting in the kitchen which heats up every day just by using the stove top! And the other things need to be painted outside, so....forget about it!
Putting away my clean clothes and my husband's clean clothes, so we don't have to rummage through laundry baskets every morning. I know from previous experience that I always find something at the bottom of the basket that I forgot I had! But...it doesn't kill us to rummage around a little now does it?
My closet is a mess and needs to be emptied of things I haven't worn in ages, which would probably help me with the putting the laundry away thing, since there actually would be room to hang things up!
The truth be told, the reason the laundry and closet thing are such issues are because I am not an organized thinker, I am just a thinker, so it is hard to come up with a practical system of storage. Hence my food pantry issues too which is also on my "list".
I have still been exercising inside, using my dvd's, but I am counting the days till I can resume my outside morning walks which clear my mind and help me to focus throughout the day!
Sorry for my whining! I know that I have nothing to complain about since my husband actually works OUTSIDE and IN cars and has managed to do so this summer without complaining or whining at all!
Alls I can say now is thank God for the invention of AC and we can make it to the days of September, where in Alabama, the high 90 degree weather usually fades in to the high 80s, then the low 80s, then the beautiful, glorious 70s!
I love you Fall and can't wait till you get here!
