Oh wait, I’ll write a blog post instead … No FFS
I’ll just let my creativity flow … No FFS
There are hundreds of drafts waiting to be finished … FFS
Hmmm, I am beginning to notice a pattern here … FFS
Then I notice all the other windows that are still opened on my computer … FFS
I never did finalise our London accommodation earlier today … FFS
Let’s just read a few more hotel reviews first just in case the first 99 weren’t accurate … FFS
And matching carry on luggage would be lovely for the trip but wait you’re supposed to be decluttering … FFS
My mind wanders to running and I ponder the thought of running after the school run tomorrow or in the evening with HB … No FFS
Then I open up a new window because I just remembered I promised to order HB some new running socks and I am almost out body glide … FFS

But he’s putting Maggie to sleep and if I walk in there I may have to parent and I am pretty much done for the day … FFS
Wait, what was I doing again?
Hang on, I need to check my email and I have some Facebook notifications to check… FFS
I am a chronic procrastinator
I went to Google and searched for answers ‘Why do I procrastinate?’, but I got a little sidetracked when I saw the other options that popped up… FFS
What The Heck ?!
At the end of the day, I get stuff done and I do work exceptionally well when I know I have a deadline or I’m under pressure … No FFS
This week I have been trying to implement Gretchen Rubin’s rule ‘If it can be done in one minute do it now’ and it seems to be working well … No FFS
