On the up side it motivated me to work on one of my novels last night, rather than coming up with internet related excuses not to write (i.e. "let's see what's going on in the Catholic News tonight at 8:09 pm... I'm sure there's some big story that wasn't posted this afternoon at nap time...").
I've also been working on our taxes. I don't know why the idea of doing taxes causes me so much stress each year... once I get started it's never that painful or difficult. It's just a matter of actually sitting down and starting. And when I weigh projects taxes never come out very high on the list. When I have limited (hands free) time I have to decide between knitting, crocheting, needle point or sewing (if I can steal away to the sewing machine that is) and taxes just don't seem to win out over the other options. I try not to ask myself which is more important: finishing Sadie's cute little merino wool easter sweater or finishing our taxes, because the sweater would be bound to lose and that's just not the choice I want to make.
But I did buckle down and finish (almost) everything yesterday. I think tomorrow they will be done and my procrastination can end for another year.... and then I can spend an entire month coming up with reasons not to take a few hours to do something that never ends up being that bad!
