Should I be cleaning? Or Blogging?

Hi folks – sorry I haven’t posted for a bit, you see I think I am ill!….Yes ill!!!!! Now most of you know by now that I am a self confessed perfectionista/procrastinator, well lately I have been at my worst….I can’t focus on anything. This morning I got up at 6.30 am ready to start the housework, but all I done was surf the net, change my blog a few times (not sure if I liked it!) so I changed it all back again! and I wasn’t supposed to be doing that at all! I then started to try to design a new template, but didnt like it so I scrapped it!  still not starting work, I decided to try to put a third column into my blog only to mess it all up and loose everything! lucky I had downloaded a copy!

By this time it was 2.30pm and I still hadn’t started any work, I haven’t listed anything onto my new website (sorry if you are waiting!) and I have neglected ebay….although I have been sitting in my office, with my backside growing into the shape of my chair, a definate lack of excercise…although my fingers are very thin! Oh yes, this IS looking rather like me at the moment!

I have been in this mood for several weeks now…..I get all excited about working and then I sit in front of the computer and get side tracked into doing things that I want to do but can’t!…..I have been trying for months now to try to learn HTML coding, but I am getting too old I think, because I just can’t get the hang of it….I can do lovely pictures in photoshop, but unless you know the code, there is no way you can make a business out of it… I think to-day I have got to decide, that I am just too old and must resign from thinking that I can! and leave it to the experts from now on.

…Its the creative side of me that wants to do it though, but I have wasted so much time trying to do it……does anyone out there get my drift! We’ll its now 20.39 I think my computer clock is WRONG…..surely it can’t be 8.39pm, I mean I got up early especially to get everything done…why oh why is it 8.39pm!!…I have got to pick Darryl up from work at 9pm (I bet I’m late!) Anyway off I go again day-dreaming instead of getting on with what I am supposed to be doing!

aaaahhhhh! sigh!…..I think I had better get up even earlier tomorrow!

Are you as focussed as me LOL?

    I’m with you, I can spend a whole day on the pc,I tell myself “just for an hour or so” and before I know it the day’s passed and I haven’t acheived anything much. But oh isn’t it fun!? And are we bothered? Naaa….not me.

    Keep trying – I learned HTML on my own via tutorials on the internet. Here’s one that was a big help – I now design & maintain our church’s website because I have this ability…all through self-teaching and online tutorials. DON’T GIVE UP IF YOU REALLY WANT TO LEARN IT – YOU CAN DO IT !!!

    Know the feeling well, we too are working at starting a little internet business and go to the computer with all good intentions only to have found some hours later that nothing has been achieved. Must stop blog hopping!!!

    If you don’t mind, could you tell me how you “download” a copy of your blog? I have been wanting to play around with my template for a while now, but I don’t have a backup at all, so I am scared to! Thanks!

    LOL I love that your husband has to contact you through your blog comments section Ha ha ha! Seriously though you sound like my twin. If I didn’t have a day job I’d never get a thing done. I blame it on the hormones myself. And how the heck did you get hold of a picture of me on the beach???

    I’m so with you. I’ve only been looking forward to the children going back to school so I can get on with getting the house back into some sort of order and making crafty type stuff. Unfortunately this has morphed into too much surfing and far to much cheese ‘n’ cracker eating (makes less mess than cake). Yet every morning I wake up full of good intentions (and cheese). It’s just no good…..

    Your post sounds oddly familiar. I’m glad to hear that others get side tracked as well. We all start out with good intentions, don’t we?
