  1. I feel like standing up and applauding you! well done! I,however feel ashamed, I have ignored the tax return for too long(yikes!!!)I have a bag of clothes waiting to go on ebay, the staircase is half painted….and Christmas…Oh God, the Christmas shopping is yet to be tackled!!
    Inspire me more Alison, I need to get a move on!

  2. That is EXACTLY how I am…I leave things until the very very last minute, the second reminder bill, kind of hoping that someone else will deal with it… But the worst thing is that while I am ignoring the things and putting them off, I am quietly worrying about them! So hurray for you taking action… and I agree with Gena, more inspiration please for those of us who still need a kick up the bum!

  4. Hurrah! Hurrah!
    I'm so happy that you have found your swing again!
    It was bound to happen eventually. Such a lovely person couldn't stay down forever. πŸ™‚

  6. Way to go girl!! You should be very proud of yourself! You done good.
    God bless!

    P.S. My husband thinks you are a babe. He didn't seem to think there was anything wrong with you your face.
    Frankly, I'm glad you and your enticing British accent are safely on the other side of the ocean!

  7. Dear Alison-
    I have been reading your blog for quite a while. It is a life-affirming thing to read the trials and tribulations of a normal woman who loves dangly hoops, silly red pumps and tousled hair. My good thoughts and wishes go out to you. You have created an interesting, very readable on-line community. That’s quite an accomplishment. From one domestic goddess to another…keep on moving forward, sister, life gets better every day…well almost!
    Love-
    Kate

  9. What a wonderful feeling to accomplish a task or two that has been put off for a little too long…I do this ALL the time! I spend so much more time dreading a task, thinking about how much I really, truly, absolutely don't want to do it, and when I finally just get it over with it's usually much less painful than I anticipated.
    Good for you and thanks for the inspiration today! πŸ™‚

  11. A round of applause no, two or three. I understand you so well " because I am a procrastinator of the highest order" too. But I want to be what I know I can be, my true self, that is much more than being a procratinator.

  13. Well done lady! I need a rocket up my posterior to get things done (apart from bills, although lately they've been big enough to be called Williams, I'm alright with them) its the ironing, tidying up etc… however Bill Oddie and Kate Humble on Autumn watch told me not to clear too much out of my garden so all the little creatures could have somewhere to hibernate…. so….. I'm taking them at their word!!

  15. Dearest Alison!!
    Good for you girl!! Never forget, you're only human with alot, I say: alot of kindred spirits here!! But, yes I say but: take care that you don't burn up too fast…everything in good time and thought over aswell! That's what I've learned over the years and it still works!
    Reminding you and your darlingboy in my prayers! Love & hugs!

  17. Well done you! So very glad you've got your positive spirit back again. Your little break last week must have really worked. As ever, thank you so much for the inspiration.

  19. Applauding here in the state of Michigan.
    I'd stand, but I'm lazy. I would have to dislodge a warm kitty and put down my laptop.
    I needed this inspiration today (can you tell?).

  21. Bravo, Bravo! I so know how you are…because that's how I am too for the most part.
    I'm proud of you! Thanks for reminding us that sometimes we just need to give ourselves a swift kick in the hind end with our gorgeous red heels and get it in gear!
    Tonight I tackle my filing system that has swallowed last year's taxes that hubby needed today and now can't locate.

  23. Good for you Alison!
    I am just as proud of myself in the same way. I was busy like this yesterday and finsihed almost 1/3 of my must do list in just a few hours.
    Of course having projects that I wanted to get back to finishing helped.

  25. Whazzat? Can you say foggy blue funk? I loved your day… Isn't it simply frightful to "wake up" and realize what is swimming in your tank? Love you!

  31. Do try to find out what it was that stimulated that rush of energy.You could bottle it up in old glass milk bottles and sell it to us.I'm sure there be plenty of willing buyers out there and you could make quite a killing as well! Hehehehe

  33. Oh, I'm so glad that I'm not the only one with heaps of bills to pay and weeds to pull. It's a rainy day and I'm going to get every paper off of my desk. I'm trying to type this with my elbows resting on a four-inch-deep pile of mail, clipped recipes, store coupons, etc. They all need action and you have inspired me!
