How to Procrastinate

--Get up early because you have lots to do.
--Decide you must finish a bridesmaid dress and make a couple of batches of jelly.
--Remember that school starts in a few days and you haven't written anything up that is batting around in your head.
--Eat breakfast and drink lots of coffee while reading your daily devotion.
--Insist you husband give you a big, long hug before he leaves for work.  Remind him a 20 second hug releases lots of feel-good endorphins.  He might be a bit resistant at first but once he realizes he might get a good feel in feeling before work, he will participate, I promise.
--Check out facebook and your blog.  It is imperative that you keep up on your social world!
--Use the flat iron on your hair although you have barely brushed it all summer.
--Fold the mountain of laundry that has been on the chair in your bedroom for days.
--Hunt for the mates to the lonely socks.
--Give up and allow the lone socks to once again become part of the bedroom decor.
--Ponder whether or not to get a motion sensor bathroom faucet so the cat can get her own drink from the sink.
--Contemplate doing more laundry but conclude that it will be counter-productive to your real plans of cooking and sewing and planning for school.
--Read a few more blogs while you drink another cup of coffee and discover a very cute origami house to make!
--Remember the origami paper you have stashed away--This project will only take a minute!
--Curse the numerous cups of coffee you drank while you shakily try to fold sharp creases and assemble the cute 'easy' house.
--search for a ruler and a glue stick for your project and wonder where all those rulers purchased for school supplies have gone over the years.
--discover adorable tiny tape dispenser with pink, blue and green tape for your house!  Better than a glue stick!
--try again to fold with shaking hands.
--SUCCESS!


--Find a spot to display your wonky beautiful cute fun houses and enjoy!

Honestly, you totally KNOW I won't make those. But they are cute. And, that sounds a whole lot like my day. Only I think you got more accomplished!

Great list - - - but I'm afraid I do NOT need lessons in procrastination, I've mastered THAT skill!!! ;-)

I love origami - I have a book and some paper stashed somewhere - intending to "get to it" sometime. And by the way, there is a fine art to procrastinating, I am good at it and I think you might be too. :)

How sturdy are those? How big? It would be cute to place one on someones desk with a half pint of jelly/jam in...or some chocolate truffles...

I don't guess I will start on the houses today. I have 4 pair of wranglers and 5 shirts that I am procastinating about. I think I better do them as these are the ones that the husband likes to wear.

Your houses are cute-so is your list! Origami is hard. I always end up frustrated. I just don't get those one dimensional drawings, I need someone to show me right in front of my face where to crease and bend.
