It's 8:57 pm. I need to read a student's paper, as I promised her I'd proof it and give her feedback. It's due Thursday, so I really need to do it today so she has time to make any changes.

I need to make a few minor changes to my proposal and send it back to the chair. Should take about an hour.

I need to finish the powerpoint presentation and practice.

Yet I've done nothing all day. Well, not nothing. I've washed the sheets, blankets, and sofa cover. Vaccuumed the house. Done a few loads of dishes. Brewed two pots of my decaf iced tea with splenda. Done my nails. Made my fav potato/onion/meatball casserole and had two servings. Even emptied the ice cube trays into the cube bin and refilled them.

What else can I do to avoid doing what I know I need to do? Watch Yul Brynner in the Magnificent Seven, that's what.

You all just might get an hour-by-hour blogging series between now and Monday that demonstrates once and for all my inability to face this particular challenge in my life.

It is so scary! And this is completely normal way of dealing with it.

Take a deep breath, drink some go- go juice, and do one paragraph at a time.

Then I am going to try to do the same. :0)
I hope you have better luck than me!
