Celebrate National Procrastination Week! (Contest)
Wednesday, March 9th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is…Mary Preston!

National Procrastination Week is a thing! How exciting is that? It runs March 6th through March 12th, so I’m a little late telling you all about it—but isn’t that the way it’s supposed to work? LOL

Most days, procrastinating is kind of a bad thing. You put off things you should be doing now—which can have consequences, even if the only one is added stress for you. So why celebrate it?

Use the holiday as your excuse to put something off you really don’t want to do now! Say, It’s National Procrastination Week, dear! The trash can pile at the curb; the laundry can build until it overflows the basket. I can start that book next week—I have a holiday to celebrate!

Here’s my procrastination rant: Yup… I have two whole weeks to finish this book. Woops, it’s ten days now. Still, I can push through to finish it next week. I’ve done it before. I work best under pressure. Adrenaline fuels my muse… 

For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, give me your procrastination rant!

    My procrastination is dishes and laundry. I am going to do laundry but I live in an apt complex where we have to share one set washer and dryer. I hear the door so I wait and then it’s too late. With dishes I will do them today, sit and read, get groceries dishes get ignored.

    I’ve put off making the banana muffins I wanted to make for awhile now…and, I’ve been putting off taking the items for the goodwill down there. Why?? It seems I just don’t want to go out or do the baking as I haven’t had the “energy” to do those things. But I’ll have to do that soon….I need those items out of the corner they’re occupying.

    I need to clean up my spare room, but it is a task I am not looking forward to, so I do other things instead.

    Don’t hate me, but I don’t procrastinate. I like to get things done and more forward.

    I put off housework to read a good book. With 425 unread books to go, that’s a lot of housework not getting done.😂

    I actually work better under pressure. If I have an assignment, I’ll do it 2 or 3 days before its due. It forces me to be more careful and make sure every detail is perfect which helps in making my professors think I took a long time to gather all the info. If its housework then I always procrastinate so I can read, especially the dishes.
