Procrastination is a Bitch!

I have always been the biggest procrastinator!  I remember in high school, I would wait until the night before a huge project was due and I would frantically gather all my supplies and somehow throw together a final product that looked as if I had spent days, maybe even weeks on.  Even in college, I could never make myself study ahead of time for the big exam.  I tried on numerous occasions, but I always ended up sitting at my desk looking at my notes with a blank stare and absolutely no motivation.  Without that adrenalin rush, I just can't get anything done.  It's like stress is what motivates me in life.  (I guess that explains a lot...)

Unfortunately I am using this same bad habit with my wedding planning and it is stressing me out, big time!  I have decided that from this point on, now that I am getting down the the final months of planning, I must make to-do lists for myself.  I have always loved making lists when I have a lot going on, mostly because of the feeling of accomplishment I get when I check an item off my list.  Shoot, I even get excited when I remember everything on my grocery list! (I'm a little weird, I know!)

So for that extra little push that I think I need for myself, I am going to post my to-do list for tomorrow on here.  That way, I'll have to get it all done and scratched off the list, or else you guys will know how worthless I've been throughout the day!  So here goes nothing:


-Print wedding invitations
-Print response cards
-Type up Reception/Hotel information
-Print reception/hotel info
-Print envelopes
-Assemble Invitations
-Buy postage for invitations
-Get the final addresses from mom/dad/hubby
-Decide on readings for wedding

Okay, I think that's enough for tomorrow! If I get all of this done, I will be happy! And while we're at it, let's go ahead and do a to-do list for Tuesday also!


-Take lil guy to his Check-up (flu-shot round 2... poor baby)
-Take my other lil one to Great-grandmas for his weekly date!
-Send out invitations in the mail! WOO HOO!
-Meeting with Priest
-Meeting with ceremony music coordinator

Okay!  That's good for now! Now I'm getting stressed just thinking of all the things I have to do this week! Now I just need to get to bed so I can actually function tomorrow!


  1. Good luck with your to-do list! I'm a terrible procrastinator, too. I'm still amazed I made it through college. 10-15 page research due next week? I can do it the night before, right?

    I keep saying I should start a Procrastinators Anonymous group, but hey, there's always next week for that... ;-p

  2. Great post and blog. I found your blog on SocialMoms. Please check out mines.:)

  3. I am so motivated if I know I don't HAVE to do something as soon as there is any outward pressure in the form of a deadline - even a loose one - hello mega-procrastination! Very frustrating... Good luck with the wedding they're tough to organise.
