Excuses Excuses

We all have excuses for why we don't get done those things that we're supposed to be doing.  So, in honor of those little things that help us procrastinate, here are a few of today's excuses up front.

- I cut my right index finger yesterday and typing makes it hurt

- Today is the Michigan vs Michigan State game!  Go Blue! (They lost.) =o(

- I really need to take a shower.

- The cat needs her claws clipped.

- I started Kristen Painter's Blood Rights last night and I really really want to know what happens. (read three chapters)

- I bought that stuff to make cake cookies over a week ago and I really should make those before my husband eats all the chocolate stars.

- The blanket I'm making for my oldest sister isn't going to crochet itself. (crocheted a few rows)

- During yesterday's procrastinatory cleaning, I missed dusting that thingy-bob under the mirror and all the geegaws on it.

Okay, now that those are out there for the world to see, I can move on and get some writing done.  After all, I've only got two hours until FOOTBALL!

What excuses are keeping you from doing what you need to do today?

Updated @ 1:48pm - Still haven't written and still not feeling the urge to.  Maybe tonight.


  1. All great excutse, B.E.!

    No excuses yet - got out for my run first thing (gorgeous day here).

    Notice I said 'yet'.

  2. Hey, good job on getting out for your run. Maybe I should've added 'take a walk' to my list of excuses. It's a pretty day here, too. =o)

  3. Haha I'm laughing. Because right now I'm sitting in the nail sAlon waiting to get my nails done. I left the kitchen a mess and my laptop open . I'll get to it later . Me time :)

  4. I usually end up reading, watching tv, or even ironing when I can't face my writing.

  5. Oh boy... is completely brain dead and overwhelmed allowed to be an excuse for like a month? Too much work at my day job is slowing my writing roll... and by slowing I mean has come to a complete stop. Sigh.
