Is sometimes my middle name. Who am I kidding? It's my middle name a lot of the time. Like today for instance. I'm back at work. Blech. You'd think that after missing 3 days of work I'd have a ton to do. You'd be right. Yet, here I am blogging. Not only have I blogged but I've met with my boss about how crazy my work schedule has been & how I don't like it, I've called the pharmacy, I've called about my mammogram, I've checked Twitter & FB & am all caught up with what's going on in the world. The problem is I look around & see piles of stuff to do & I don't know where to start. So I don't. It's been here 3 days what's another little while? This is often how things go with me around the house when it's time to clean or organize. I start looking around & can't figure out where to start so I give up. It's a curse really.

Did I mention I'm STILL sick? I know I sound like a broken record. Thankfully, I do feel better. Yet every time I talk to someone they say "are you sure you're feeling better?". Considering I felt like death, yes, this is better.  I thought I felt better than I do this morning but once the Robitussin hangover wore off I realized that I don't feel all that great. After a call to my Doctor round 2 of the steroids have been called in. Oh joy. Regardless of the fact that I don't feel great, I'm not taking the first steroid until tomorrow morning. I  need one more good nights sleep. Those things make me crazy. Seriously.

Dean has jury duty today. Last time I heard from him was this morning. He was in a jury pool that would be questioned. I fully expect him to be chosen. He was before. It's so annoying for me because he won't tell me anything about the trial. He's all "I can't discuss it" & I'm all "I'm your wife, you can tell me" He's all "They said I can't discuss it with anyone" Me "they don't mean your wife" & it goes on & on. He's such a rule follower.  I was questioned last time I had jury duty. Now, don't get me wrong, I didn't want to be on a jury. I have nightmares of it being a murder trial & the guy gets convicted & then his peeps send threatening letters. It's all very scary if you think about it. BUT I was questioned & they needed one more alternate & they dismissed me. Now WHY didn't they want me?  They didn't ask any earth shattering questions where they could read anything into my answers. I was offended. Still am a little bit. Trust me, I know it makes zero sense.

Have y'all read any of Jen Lancaster's books? I LOVE her! She's snarky, hilarious & has an opinion on everything! I'm currently reading Jeneration X. Hilarious. All but one of her books are memoirs. She has her 2nd fiction book coming out soon. I liked the fiction but the memoirs are my favorite. 

As of yesterday, all of the Christmas stuff is down. Thanks to Dean most of it is also put away. What's not is all in one room for me to deal with when I'm feeling better. I'm beginning to wonder when that will be!



  1. Traci, you could be my clone! I am such a procrastinator. I always said I have the Scarlet O'Hara syndrome...I'll worry about that tomorrow!

    I do go in spurts. I can get a lot done and other times, I am too overwhelmed to figure out where to start. Makes me crazy!

    If we have people or a party coming up, you would be amazed what I can get done!

    You need to get better soon, girl!

  2. Traci, I always say that I do my very best work, last minute!!
