This One's For The Procrastinators

It's important that you know a couple of things about me:
  • I'm the eldest child.  Therefore, I burden myself with responsiblities that sometimes aren't even mine.
  • I am responsible.  For me, getting to work at 6:30 a.m. instead of 6:00 or 6:15 a.m. (when we're required to be there at 7:15) is my idea of being late.
  • I don't live beyond my means.  I have to be in a mood to go shopping, especially for clothes.  I'm not a big shoe shopper, but if I don't have a cute purse (that matches the season nonetheless), watchout!  You never know when you're going to be sick, need car repairs, going to lose a job, etc. so it's important to save your pennies.
All of the above illustrates I don't spend a dollar without thinking about it.  I go to work each day, do my tasks, and act like a responsible citizen.  Every now and then I may leave my desk cluttered, but that's the extent of my procrastinating.  I don't wait until the last minute to do something. 

Which is why I started looking at spring break destinations back in November.  I thought about going to Sanibel, but then saw the price.  Being the responsible woman I am, that was out.  I looked at South Padre, and it was half the price of Sanibel.  I mulled it over, then finally decided against it.  I love Texas, but just wasn't feeling it this spring break.


(If you've ever been to UK Basketball game, you know they have an enormous blue flag and pyramid they use during this song.  All of us UK fans honor this sacred moment by not recording it.  Seriously, you can't even find it on Youtube.  Try.)

So after UK whupped UNC in the Elite Eight, I had spring break plans. 

And even though Saturday's game didn't turn out quite the way we wanted (or Monday's-go Butler!), it was fun for once in my life to procrastinate and have something work out in my favor.

Now I just have to get my taxes complete before next Friday!  I think I hear the EZ form calling!
