     I am a slacker.  I have so many things that I want to do, but I just don't get them done.  I have thoughts in my head that I want to write about, but they don't get written down.  I have projects in various states of completion, but very few completed.  Christmas is coming up and I have a couple of projects that have to be finished.  One year, I didn't get Christmas cards finished until New Years.

     I see and hear so many people accomplish things, and I wonder how they do it.  I hear people talk about clean houses, laundry completed, and dishes washed, I promise that doesn't happen here.  I have one basket of clothes to fold, one to put away and the basket is full of dirty clothes again.  I see pictures of beautiful scrapbooks that people make.  Delainey is 5 and her scrapbooks are at least two years behind.

     My grandpa's birthday was November 5.  I wanted to write about him on his birthday, but I didn't get it done.  I will write it some day because my grandpa was such a wonderful man and so important to me in my life.  I watched "Food Inc" and read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.  I have spent so much time thinking about the food that I eat and feed my family.  I have wanted to write about it, but I just haven't sat down to do it.

     I have stuffed animals to operate on because they have been so well loved.  I have a quilt that my mother in law and her mother started.  I want to finish it and give it to Delainey.  I have started it, but since I am a slacker, it isn't done.  Delainey and I started to make an apron last spring.  It is almost done, I think it would only take thirty minutes to finish, but it isn't finished.

     I know that I am a slacker.  I get distracted easily.  I get sucked into facebook,  I watch to much tv....Bravo, Food Network, TLC, HGTV are my weaknesses.  I take naps instead of working on projects.

     I am a slacker, but I am trying to reform....
