I am so half-baked, and to give you an idea of what I mean, here are a couple of recent examples. I have been staring forever at a cookie sheet on top of my toaster oven that has dried herbs on it. However, instead of drying the herbs how the books and internet said I should, I just cut them and threw them on a cookie sheet. They did eventually dry. Now I just leave the cookie sheet there and take from it when I need it. I know I should crumble and store the herbs, but I just don't. The next example is the shop-vac. Every Wed. Francis uses it to vacuum his room,( he's the only one with carpet). A few days ago, I took it apart to clean the filters. The filters stayed laying on the side of my bathtub for about 2 days after they were dry and another 2-3 days sitting next to the vacuum, where they still currently are today. I only have to slide the filters back in place and put the top back on, but have I done it..haha...nope! What is it about starting things and not finishing? I have started scrapbooks that who knows if they will ever get done. I have put many articles of clothing that needs stitching up in my 'fix it' pile, just to forget it and see it again later after my kids have already grown out of it. Yikes. Talk about procrastinating. I guess it's all about what is important to me. I mean, some days I get the organizing itch so bad that I lug things out of shelves and closets until everything is in the 'new' place where I visualized it. How weird to get so obsessed with something like that, but then not care about stuff laying around waiting to be put away. This is me though, this is part of who I am and how I work and I know there are others like me...believe me, I've seen it with my own eyes. :)
