Talk About Tuesday

I’m joining up with The Lazy Organizer’s Talk About Tuesday, where you can talk about accomplishments, good news, anything positive that you want, and link to her blog.
It’s important to think about the things we DO accomplish, and not just dwell on the things we DIDN’T get done. Or is that just me.

I have a couple of things to talk about this Tuesday, but no pictures because Blogger is having issues.

1. I finished our paperwork and got our taxes done! Sounds like a small accomplishment, especially since it was due, say, 6 months ago, but I am procrastinator extraordinaire. I’ve taken procrastinating to the next level. I DID remember to get an extension, though, so don’t worry. The feds won’t be taking me away anytime soon.


2. I decided to pull out an old project to work on while watching conference this past weekend. This is embarrassing to admit, but I began this little cross-stitching project oooooooohhhhhhh 11 years or so ago. The magazine is dated 1994. You know how it goes, out of sight, out of mind. I may not get it done for this Halloween but there’s always hope for next year. And I’m not going to sweat the small stuff.

Don't tell anyone but my husband doesn't file taxes on time either. You don't have to file an extension if you don't owe any money. I won't tell you how long it takes him to get them done but let's just say it's a lot longer than six months!

Do one row of cross stitch a day and you'll have it done in no time!

I love those projects that last a long time; not the taxes, the craft I mean. I had a crewel embroidery piece around for about 10 years before I finally finished it. Sadly, I failed to take the metal hoop off the fabric and it left a rust stain.

Kudos! I rarely finish things I started that long ago...I'm proud of you!

Good for you for trying to finish the cross-stitch. I have a quilt top I started 14 years ago. It's finally done but I haven't attached the back yet or quilted it. Maybe sometime in the next 14 years it will get done.

Add me to the list of late tax-return people. I actually like getting the $$ back late in the year, just in time for Christmas.

Why is it so easy to be a started and so hard to be a finisher????
Good Job and Good Luck!

I won't even talk about how long that cross-stitch project that will probably take less than an hour to finish has been sitting in my stash. Good for you for pulling it out and getting it done.

Congrats on the taxes and the project progress! Definetily something to feel good about! I think it's great to celebrate those little things instead of stressing out about stuff NOT done. Also, I noticed that you're a sister scrapper! On Mondays I host a little blog carnival, Masterpiece Monday, to display my scrappy works of art! You should come by some time and post if you have any you'd like to display, I always get inspired by other people's creativity!

I had the same photo uploading issues with blogger - every other attempt failed but eventually went through. I'm sure getting tax stuff taken care of is a relief. Good luck on your cross stitching!

Hey, I am just impressed you remembered where you left the cross stitch :) !!
