A severe case of the dontwannas

Gratuitous super cute Hobbit shot
I have a list of things that I need to do - clean the house for company, wash clothes for modesty and pack for moving.  Nothing on there is small which leaves me with a severe case of the dontwannas.  I don't wanna do it... I just don't.

When projects get too big, both good and bad, I get overwhelmed. I may be the most organized soul on the planet when it comes to most things but there are times when it all gets to be too much and I kind of shut down... not a "Rainman" moment, more of a Scarlett O'Hara pause.

So I will sluff off for another day until I look at the calendar and realize that I must now double time it to get it done.  I don't mean to be this way. I don't like to be this way. I just am this way - and I know it. So instead of doing what I should be, today I am going to indulge my case of the dontwannas and I'm going to sit down and finish my Nerd Wars Dissertation. Once that is done, I'll work some more on my shawl... or my scary sweater that has been hibernating for over a year and a half... or my Christmas tree skirt... or anything else at all.

To quote the great Southern belle - "I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow.."


  1. Wooo boy, do I ever know what you are talking about. I get that way from time to time.

  2. Break it up...do a (smallish) 'gotta do' job, and then do the 'i dont wanna do it so I will just sit and...' job....
