This blog chronicles my life as I try to balance healthy lifestyle habits with my husband's penchant for pizza rolls and my daughter's desire to watch iCarly 8 hours a day. It contains a mostly humorous, kind, and somewhat spiritual look at everyday life and the people who live it.

A Day Late and a Dollar Short
I tell myself that my tendency toward procrastination isn't a problem because I work best under pressure. I think the truth is that I get a bigger high from "pulling it off" than I do from crafting a reasonable schedule and accomplishing my goals.
I'm also not so good at confrontation. Recently I have been "confronting" a lot, and while I thought "the more you do it, the better you'll become" the truth is the more I do it the more I realize how much I don't like confrontation. I have taken on the Massachusetts RMV (record: 1 loss, 1 win), the insurance company (1 win, 1 draw), BMW (2 losses, 1 win), and the Social Security office (1 win, and it was soooo satisfying!). Frankly I probably wouldn't have had to do so much confronting had I not allowed myself to get into a do-or-die timeframe due to ...yeah, I'll say it...procrastination. Now I know I have one more confrontation to make: my realtor, but I'll blog about that another time....
