Here's a random observation for a Friday morning...

Friday, June 18, 2004
normally I get up and start getting dressed about 30 minutes before I have to leave for work. Yeah, I am rushed a bit, but I always get out the door in plenty of time and make it to work either on time or early. But on days where I get up extra early I am always late. Today I got out of bed an hour before I had to leave. I made some coffee, went out on my patio and watered my plants (my poor, neglected plants), skipped through a few channels on the TV while drinking my coffee, surfed a bit, read my email, and then looked at the clock and realized that I had to be out the door in fifteen minutes!! Unbelievable!

It's always like that with me, whether it's getting ready for work or anything else. If there is something that has to be done I work much better when I am under a tight timeline...when I have all the time in the world I tend to procrastinate even more. I know I have written about this before - at least I think I have.

When I have a project, whether it be here at work or when I was in college, in the beginning I might be all gung-ho (is that right) getting started on it. Then when I realize how much time I have I put it to the side...until about a week or so, depending on the project, before it's due ~ then I kick it into high gear and get it done! And usually done well!

I'm even that way with the wedding. The first three months or so, we were working on something every day - then after some of the major stuff got done, the plan sort of fell off. Now we're within four months (Wow - can you believe in four months we'll be married!!!) and we're back in high gear. Current tasks: Flower girl dresses & flowers!!!

So, I guess it isn't always bad to procrastinate, unless you don't work well under pressure. I find that I work better under pressure, so even though I know sometimes it drives those people around me crazy, I know that whatever it is I'll get it done on time...and done well!
