An old idea, I know, but hey, starting this thread is another genius way to continue my procrastination...

Each day my collection of photos of DD and DS is growing larger, and I still haven't put them all in one place. I have only a few actual physical photos, the rest are on my camera and two mobiles. I need to get them all off there, onto my single USB I bought specifically for this purpose, and eventually edit them all, get them onto CDs and take them into Kmart or upload to Snapfish to have printed copies made so I can make scrapbooks for each of my grandmothers for Mother's Day next year.

Sure, that's ages away. But... I actually planned to do it a while ago. Like... a year ago. And I now have thousands of photos to sort through. I don't wanna sit here and sift through all those photos. Wahhh.

First world problems and all that.

What are you putting off right now?

Making a decision whether to go to a funeral on Friday or my work luncheon. Frankly I'd rather do neither and stay in bed sad.gif

I've read the internet.

I've played all of WoW.

Now I don't know what to do.  And I'm procrastinating about making a decision.

I promised to give student input into a review of my college's "essay guidelines" document.  It's a monster of a thing.  I can't bring myself to look at it.

Another one needing to sort photos.It's always in the back of my mind, but I just can't get motivated to do it. I've also got thousands and thousands of photos stored on the laptop and my phone, and I know if something happens to either of those things I'll be devastated..yet it still doesn't push me into sorting through them all and transferring them, let alone printing them and actually making photo books/albums with them.
DD1 will be 3 in feb and I still haven't made any kind of album for her, so DD2 obviously has nothing either, and I really should start before we have another baby lol. I really thought I'd find this such a 'fun' mummy thing to do, but there's so many now I don't even know where to start wacko.gif

At least we're taking lots of photos in the first place, right? That's a good thing happy.gif

Folding all the clean washing so we can actually see what we want to pack for our holiday. I know the holiday is an exciting thing, but just CBF.

Also, wrapping presents. I've had all the presents for a while, just CBF wrapping them. We leave in 3 days and I need to have them wrapped and delivered before we leave. I think part of it was I couldn't find the right wrapping stuff this year so am not inspired. Also, can't do it during DS2's awake hours which feels like forever. By the time he goes to sleep at night, I'm knacks and couldn't be bothered about wrapping.

Kids books. I normally have them contacted and named before we go on holidays so the box is ready for school next year and I don't have to think about it at all in Jan. not happening this time.

Ohh me too!! I have the books. I have the contact. I lack the motivation. The uniforms are all clean and ironed, but the books haven't been done yet!

You lot are a bit organised! School only just finished! I got as far as checking which shirts still had buttons as they came out the wash.

There you go, another thing I'm putting off ...

Everything!need to get organized, cook, clean, get my life in order but have noooooo motivation. DH's depression doesn't help either. We have been home together all day every day for nearly 6 weeks (except my work days) and we are about ready to kill each other.
