10 Loads of Laundry – Really?

I have a confession. I just folded ten loads of laundry. How did I get so far behind? I could blame sickness, I could blame balancing the new school schedule, I could blame that life is just too busy. All that is true but what is the real reason. Procrastination.

One of those funny signs of facebook went by the other day. “Don’t do today what you can put off until tomorrow.”

I laughed but the sad thing is that too often I live my life by that philosophy. In fact, when I was a freshman in high school, I had perfected this philosophy. I actually did my homework in the class before.  I must say I am not that bad any more but I still fall into the American mindset of – reward now, work later.

The more I evaluate this life style, the more I think it short changes me from a lot of joy in my life. By procrastinating I always have stuff hanging over my head to do. I want to change – now the challenging part – actually changing.

I know we are a long way from January but this is my new resolution. I want to seek God first and let him lay out my day. Pushing hard all day so I can feel good about what I accomplished at the end. Even if I can’t do it all, if I have done my best then I have a lot to be proud of. I will check in with updates.

What about you? What is one bad habit you could break that would change your life for the good?

    Laundry–blech! I am very thankful for my washing machine and dryer, but the folding and putting it away is a chore. Several years ago, I decided enough was enough. I would do laundry once a week. Get it all done. I do it on Mondays, and I usually have a load in the dryer Tuesday morning, but I buckle down and put it away. It’s really freeing to not have to do laundry the rest of the week!

      Hey Jill thanks for stopping by – I need to get back to doing this regularly. ;) Since I first read your comment I have tried to do the once a week thing though. It has helped – now to get back on track after vacation.
