Some unfinished business

Well, fiddlesticks.

It recently dawned on me that there are several ongoing projects of mine that I have yet to get around to finishing.  I am the world’s worst about starting something, forgetting about it, then moving on to the next super cool thing.

Josh has suffered the most from my weakened motivation.  I promised him months ago that I would crochet an awesome super comfy hat for him for the winter.  It’s now mid November and this is as far as I’ve gotten…

I’m currently failing around the world  in a failboat.

I also need to finish this book.

I started reading it on our trip home from Gulf Shores, AL this past summer and I’m over halfway finished with it.  I had every intention of picking it up again, but unless I’m forced to sit still for long periods of time (such as during a long, monotonous road trip for example), it’s difficult for me to make myself sit down, focus on the story, and NOT have my mind telling me about the other 643726264720 things I should be doing instead. (It’s been a really great read though).

I also have craploads of photos on multiple SD cards that I’ve collected for the past couple of years that I haven’t yet printed.  Again, good intentions, lack of motivation.  When I think about the hundreds and hundreds of pictures I’ll have to edit, save, upload, print…makes my head spin!  So clearly the logical thing to do is keep taking MOAR PIKSHURS to add to the problem.

I’ve decided to dedicate at least part of this weekend to finishing up these things.  Yay for productivity!

    Wow, this is so me!! Except for the reading part… lol I have a bucket full of craft stuff that should be cellphone and wine glass charms, bookmarks and any number of other little beady things. I also have hundreds of pictures to go through from the last six years, more so to clear space on my hard drive and get rid of useless images than print (I haven’t even come close to that part!), but trying to be a money making photographer the two memory cards with pictures that aren’t backed up yet is really bad for me. I found your blog through caity.nu and was surprised to see the first post be so relatable (<my spell checker doesn't think this is a word). Hope you don't mind my slightly long comment :/

    I tried so hard once to crochet and knit. I failed, miserably. It hurt my fingers, or something… or maybe that was just an excuse I used I DONT KNOW… it’s over now… you brought back haunting memories of my failure 😦

    I miss reading. Every time I go to read a book that isn’t work-related, I feel guilty because I should be reading something that has to do with work so I don’t fail this miserable test coing up. I can’t wait until my days and nights aren’t filled with numbers and stupid stock market lingo.
