You'd think I'd know better

I really, really didn't want to work on any of my anti-procrastination projects today. However, if I didn't , I'd have to admit it here, so I persevered.

The furnace room in the basement is also a storage area. Last year, I bought a new TV. (It was on Wanda's birthday, but for the record, it's not hers.)

The box has been sitting around in the middle of the furnace room ever since. It's annoying, but up until now, it has been less annoying than reorganizing the boxes to fit that box into the mix. However, today I reorganized the boxes and fit the TV box in so that it's no longer in the middle of the floor. In the process, I found some stuff that had fallen behind the boxes. I also moved the printer box off of the workbench, which gives me more workbench space.

It took probably 10 minutes.

Let me repeat that. I've been procrastinating on doing it for close to a year, and I got it done in 10 minutes.

And ... this is why I decided to work on projects I've been procrastinating on.

In other news, I finally boxed up the patchwork pieces so that I can mail them to my mom. Tomorrow I will mail them.


  1. I keep all of my boxes for electronics and other sensitive stuff. It makes packing/moving so easy. However, I live in a small one bedroom apartment and keeping all the boxes is becoming really difficult!

  2. Yes, I like to keep the boxes for major electronics, but they do take up a lot of room!

    When I had my kitchen re-done, I got an over-the-stove microwave, so I needed to get rid of my old - but perfecly good - one. A few weeks later, my mom came to visit & said that her microwave had just broken - so I packed my microwave up in its original box & sent it on the plane with her. She still has it (I think).
