Procrastination & Motivation

I have LOADS of stuff I should be doing .. LOADS. And How much have I done? Very little. I am the Queen of procrastination and I have ZERO Motivation. I really WANT to want to do stuff. I want to get off the couch, turn the TV and computer off and create, but it feels like too hard of a job. I want to do it but I just don't seem to be able to. I know I am a little depressed, I miss Jason like crazy and having him not here does stop me from doing a lot of things, I am very lonely, lonely for Jase, lonely for that one person I can sit and chat to about nothing after the kids go to bed. Lonely for that other person to make an effort for. Anyway enough groaning and griping ...

Today the procrastination of the day ....

We have HEAPS of wooden blocks, the kids love them and play with them often. But I wanted to make them a little more exciting. I had a 'light bulb' moment the other day and remembered I had these stamps from Stampin' Up ....



So this afternoon we spent a very long time procrastinating from what I should be doing to turning our blocks from looking like this ....



to looking like this ....



The kids enjoyed themselves and they love the new look blocks!!

Great procrastination I say!
