I think it’s a general lack of self-confidence that leads me to procrastinate sometimes, even on little things–like I don’t want to go to bed on time, because I feel like I ought to have done more that day. So I do the logical thing and stay up surfing the Net instead. 🙂
My husband isn’t like that; he wants to do something, he does it. I have a student right now and he isn’t like that either. He’s gotten more done in a couple of weeks than I have in months. I need to learn from these guys just to move forward without thinking.
I am becoming more aware of my tendency to procrastinate, so I had a productive day today. I made palak paneer again via this recipe this time, and wrote some code. (The recipe worked great; added some yogurt too. Prep time was much more than 20 minutes though). Taking the laptop out of my bedroom really helped. When it was there I used to just surf the Internet for hours sometimes, because it was more interesting than sleeping. Or sometimes because I was looking for information on cancer.
My mom went grocery shopping today. Last week her white blood cell count was borderline low. I wish she would just stay home.
I am feeling weird burblings in my tummy. I think it is the baby moving, but I’m not completely sure.
These posts need to be more focused. I guess they reflect my state of mind: I am pulled in so many different directions these days; mom, baby, new marriage, relatively new house, and job. I’m exhausted, and it’s hard to focus.
