Life of a Shiny New Idea (in pictures)

Once upon a time, a shiny new idea popped into my head, and I was like:
 

And to all my friends I was like, "Yeah, I got a shiny new idea.":


But then I had to think a lot:


And I was like, "I thought shiny new ideas came all assembled!":


But I wrote and I wrote until I was like:


And, "Squirrel!":


And "Oooh! Housecleaning!":


I was going to get back to it, but then I saw this book that looked MUCH more interesting than mine:


And wait, "Is that another squirrel?":


And then Darling Husband asked how my book was coming, and I'm like, "GET OFF MY BACK, I'll get to it!":


"I just really like housecleaning.":


And then I'm like, "What am I saying?":


"There are way better ways to waste my time!":


So how do ya'll stay on task?

I just do because I have to. After all, no one else is going to write my story for me!

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! The last one made me burst out laughing. Nice post, Janet. I can definitely relate! (though your toilet is much cleaner than mine, so maybe I'm not procrastinating ENOUGH?)
