I used to always be on time for everything, and procrastination was never part of my vocabulary. Then I had kids. Everything changed. Now I’m frequently late and I tend to leave things to the last minute. But I’m working on it, and I’m certainly getting better. For now, I’m thankful for services that help people like me. Although I seriously procrastinated on some Christmas gift-purchasing, I didn’t have to worry about running out of time to do wrapping. I think Mastermind Toys gets some serious business because of their free gift wrapping year-round. But here’s a little known fact: Chapters also provides gift wrapping – you just have to go to the children’s area. They’ll wrap anything purchased in store. So, today’s nice thing is free gift wrapping for the procrastinators, lazy, non-crafty, harried, busy, or all of the above.
Another nice thing: homeschooling friends. Today the kids played all day at their friends’ house while I got some work done. Tomorrow friends from New Zealand are coming for a playdate before heading back home – they were here for 6 months, and it doesn’t seem like it’s been that long! It’s so nice for the kids to have friennds that they can play with anytime.
