I'm realizing (okay, maybe I've known for awhile) that I have commitment issues. Another way of saying that is that I'm a procrastinator in the worst sense.

Evidence point #1: my blog. I haven't updated in more than a month.

Evidence point #2: I still have benefits claims for some ancillary services from 2007 that I never submitted. It's money that belongs to me, but I just never got around to claiming it. It's always on my "to do" list, but hasn't been done yet.

Evidence point #3: My thesis. I finished my coursework last January. I still haven't really started my thesis proposal yet. That's a whole year wasted.


I hate this personality trait.

On another completely unrelated note, our satellite signal disappeared yesterday. Because of our schedules, the earliest we could have someone come in is tomorrow afternoon. That's a full 2.5 days without TV. Did I mention we have a 4 and 2 yr old in the house?

It's like we're on Survivor or something. My only hope is that it gets restored before LOST comes on Wednesday.

Our 11-month old 52 inch flatscreen went out on us. We didn't have it for 1 1/2 weeks! At least it happened one month before the warranty was over. All the shows we had saved on the DVR were erased because the DVR kept recording.

I hope you have a stock of kid videos on hand!

When you said you had commitment issues, I thought this was going to be a very different post. whew.

But yikes. That's a long time to go without tv.

Does anybody remember the show Kidd Video? (Puffy brought it up)

I'm very afraid of the same thing happening with my thesis. I think I'll stay on track with the classes, but will have a hard time getting to the independent work. Tis the story of my life.

Just checking in to see how you are doing on your procrastination. :-)
