Why we procrastinate

We feel overwhelmed.

We overestimate the amount of time needed.

We would rather be doing something else.

We think that if we wait long enough, the task will go away.

We fear failure.

We fear success.

We enjoy the last-minute adrenaline rush.

Things I did today...

Today was a pretty darn productive day for me... In case you are wondering, here is what I did:

went to Healthsport (the gym)
cleaned out our garage (big job!)
made a dump run to get rid of garage stuff and recycle cardboard
hauled some stuff to a friend's storage unit
did two loads of laundry
did my best not to strangle my children
got caught up in the office

and that was all before noon.... very good day!

2 of my favorite things!

I took this photo for Glamorous Boutique in Fortuna a couple of weeks ago. It combines two of my very favorite things.... jeans and photography!! Anyone who knows me probably knows that I have a jeans addiction... and I really like the ones with the sparkly pockets. Go check out Glamorous if you are in town....

Dance Circus

I photographed the dancers of the "Dance Circus" put on by No Limits from Arcata and McKinleyville a couple weekends ago. Here's one shot of our good friends, the Alto kids.... Aren't they adorable?!

Popcorn for dinner!

The picture was taken with my phone but they actually appear to like each other! I let them have popcorn for dinner and watch a movie. Mother of the year, I know!
