The Lights came down today!

Everyone will be pleased to know that the lights came down TODAY...March 11th.....
I hadn't even read my wife's post...http://some-times-i-wish.blogspot.com/2008/03/my-house-was-free-of-christmas-lights.html, but I did hear Rachel call and tell Missy she was going to come take the lights down....

I took my neighbor up on his offer to let me use his ladder and took them down today. It took all of 10 minutes so yes, it's embarassing to to be taking them down in March, but I'm glad it's done.
I almost took them down between Christmas and New Years, but thought that was too quick. In hindsight, that's what should have been done. This year won't be as bad b/c I'm not planning on opening any new offices.

Tax Season is an excuse, but that's all it really is. An excuse.

I'm still planning on putting up lights this year after Thanksgiving...........I'm not making any promises as to when they come down.

Next year Missy won't be pregnant, so we'll see what happens.

I am not going to say a word here...if you don't have anything good to say, say nothing at all, right?

there is a gold gene, that is all i am saying....procrastination.

And, there is a WILLS gene, it's called we can't keep our mouths shut, look at that, I couldn't even live up to three sentences ago.

I am proud that you did finally get out there, and we are laughing so hard about the next year comment, "well, missy won't be pregnant next year"....good one

Missy won't be pregnant next year, or any year thereafter....I think.

It's not just procrastination, it's the combination of working 18 hour days, not having my own ladder, and having Gold procrastination genes.

I got my brother Grant a really cool shirt that says:

"Procrastinators UNITE!
.......tomorrow."
