Chasing Rabbits and Then Some......

Every once in awhile I feel just like "Alice" chasing that proverbial white rabbit. I wake up in the morning with all the best intentions of having a productive day and I end up with a mountain of unfinished business! It never fails, all my best intentions always seem to sprout wings and take flight right out the window....WHY ME? 

I am an intelligent, somewhat organized woman. I've done the lists, memos to self and even taped off my keyboard so not to get caught up on the internet....why can't I finish what I have planned for the day.
 

I day-dream! Yep, I'm admitting to this most common malady of ALL artists! The simplest of sights will send my mind somersaulting into a kaleidoscope of ideas and stories. Just as one character starts to take life on paper my hand starts to jerk and I start on another. After a mountain of white paper begins to grow in the corner of my workroom I realize that I didn't finish the dishes or finish printing out my orders. The order for Mrs. P is still undressed while Mr. C's character still needs his legs and the day is half over! 

There are seriously days I feel like I am chasing that little white fur-ball down the hole into oblivion! ARGH!!!!! Some seem to think it's my approaching old age! WELL! Whose old? Isn't old just a three letter word or in some cases a four (olde).....Do I need a twelve step program for day-dreaming? Now I'm doing it again, Here I sit writing when I should be dressing Mrs. P's character and helping Mr. C's to walk....and cleaning up the white paper mountain in my corner! 

 I'm thinking "paper plates" are good, as I listen to my printer humming along and spitting out my orders!

I call is procrastinating, that is what I am best at, lol.
I need to get myself organized in thoughts and hopefully get things done before the holidays.

A lady after my own heart. Where does the day go?????
I have know idea, although I do know they go some where very quickly.
Age is only a number it certainly is NOT what is in my head.

Day dreaming is a good thing, and clearly it has not hurt your creativity, Dream away my friend dream away, and perhaps, we will be lucky enough to dream along with you
