I’ve never been much of a procrastinator, I don’t think. I’m quite an organized person and I tend to set out schedules for myself so that in appropriate increments things get done as they ought. But for the past few weeks I just can NOT seem to get motivated to get things ready for the boys to go to school.
Their supplies have been cluttering up the dining room table for 3 weeks. No exageration They are piled up haphazardly according to child but they have not been touched. In fact, I’m quite positive there is a layer of dust covering the top pencil case and duotang. Now, of course I’m referring to the supplies that I have actually purchased. To my shame each child still has 2 or 3 things on the list that I have yet to acquire.
Then there’s the issue of uniform clothing. It’s still folded neatly in a box exactly where I put it after it was washed and sorted on the last day of school. I have not bought a new pair of navy pants, nor white polo all summer. I have not checked to make sure that gym strip or inside shoes still fit. I just haven’t.
This morning I was thinking to myself how on earth this may have happened? All I can surmise is this. I don’t want summer to end and I don’t want to send my boys back to school. Perhaps I am completely ridiculous and have concluded that if I’m not ready for them to head off to school – the day won’t come!
So I get that that’s silly. Admittedly I sometimes have silly thoughts. And now I have 3 days to get them all ready cause as we all know, tuesday will come whether I like it or not!
