Anything But Work. Please...

Okay, I just don't feel like working. All right? I mean, I need to work. I should work. It's time for work...

But I don't wanna work.

I consulted Santa--as played by Yoda. He said, "Here, have a candy cane. And may the force be with you."

Thanks a bunch, Santa.

Last year, I had a 12/28 deadline. Now that was fun. Not. This year, I planned better. My deadline is February 1, '08. Plenty of time to write Tanner's story and enjoy the holidays.

And yet, here I am. Typing a sentence. Not liking it. Hitting the backspace button until, once again, I face a screen as blank as a field of new-fallen snow. And really, I think, I simply can't sit here one single minute longer.

So I get up to pour a fresh glass of iced tea--and find myself distracted by the burning need to hear White Christmas just one more time, to plug in the tree lights and bask in the seasonal glow. To wrap a few presents, make a holiday phone call or two.

Yes. It's true. I'm a Christmas junkie.

Should I simply resign myself? Should I accept the fact that, no matter how carefully I plan, I am destined to end up in January, sweating bullets, racing to meet a deadline that is suddenly upon me, bearing down on me, looming before me, undeniable. Terrifying. Implacable. And other words with more than three syllables.

By then, of course, I'm appalled that I didn't have the sense to spend my December more wisely.

What's a girl to do?

Work smart? Or give it up and get seriously festive and pay the price after the dawn of the New Year?

Festive is better. I mean, really. It's only once a year...

ROFL yes I know it's only once a year but it seems to take from Nov-Jan! I haven't been a good Holiday person this year. Of course it seems we just did this a month a two ago not a whole year. Well I better get busy cause I have a lot to do yet. I feel like the Grinch this year and Christmas Eve and Day are at our house, oh well as I said I better get busy and I better have LOL or a lot to drink!!

Grinchy Barb. Hmmm. There's an image. *g* A lot to drink is always good. But I know you. You'll rise to the occasion. You always do...

Many hugs and ho-ho-ho

Hey Christine!

Maybe you just do your best work under pressure? That's why you are just avoiding being on top of things?

Ok, it should probably be said that my DH would say that I could find a way to justify almost anything. "It's all about the spin, baby!" That is why I am so good at marketing and promotions! LOL (there I go again!)

Seriously, do what you need to do--and have a most FABULOUS HOLIDAY!

I still have to bake, and I am finding about a dozen things I would rather do. So I am doing a bit of my own procrastinating. Darn writers strike, I cannot even watch tv.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all in your house!

Kim, that's it! I need that pressure. And by golly, now I've got it! LOL

I know your Christmas was merry, so I'm wishing the best of New Years. And yes, DH is so right, it's all about the spin!

PS Kim--love right back at ya!
