Procrastinator? Or Welcome to Mamaville?

I've never been a procrastinator. I've always been an OCPD list maker, task master kinda person. If there's a job to be done, do it thoroughly to perfection, and do it now. Crossing items off a list has always given me a high of sorts. I always felt empowered by a clean slate. (Sheesh, get a life, eh?!) I don't know if becoming a mom has made me start to loosen up or if leaving the corporate workforce has made me a bit less rigid about my to-do lists and the thought of deadlines. I feel like I'm slacking off.

I am reading about 4 books (7 if you include the other 3 I haven't picked up in more than 30 days) and can't seem to get them finished. I have 3 new ones waiting in queue. I have 4 letters I need to write (yes, I still have snail-mail pen friends!), two self-help "projects" I am floundering on, two products to finish & review, and I am behind on visiting blogs and social groups....Yikes! (Not to mention a few household things...and the whole art room full of crafty/artsy projects abandoned when Isaac entered my life). But I did clean the fridge the other day! I saw that BBQ sauce had been spilled in the door compartment, so I stopped and cleaned the whole fridge! Yay me!

Maybe I'm not a procrastinator...maybe I lack focus? Maybe I lack direction? Maybe I need to slow down? Maybe I need to take all my lists and make one master list? Tell that to my 21 month old tasmanian devil...heheh.

Maybe I just need to stop obsessing and just do what I can, when I can and realize that time passes differently in Mamaville...

So if I owe you a visit & comment, a letter, an email, or a phone call...bear with me!

Yes, you are definitely in Mamaville! Before I got pregnant, I used to stay at my job until my desk was cleared. Sometimes that meant 6pm, other times 8pm. Then I got pregnant and I realized that not everything was as important as I thought it was and decided that I could not simply do everything anymore. You are there my friend! But it is so much better, because we shouldn't sweat the small stuff, and things will get done when they get done.
