    Lightbulb March '09 Procrastinate-No-More Challenge

    This challenge is for those of us whose philosophy is, if it can be put off until tomorrow, there's no point in doing it today.

    This month we're going to focus on finishing up some of those annoying small jobs that won't take long to do, but yet they keep hanging over our heads, unfinished, mocking us.

    We're starting off by working on installing the last of the laminate that's been living in front of our TV in the living room for six years. All that's left is to install it in a small walk-in closet in the master bedroom, a job that shouldn't be difficult or take very long. With any luck at all, it'll easily be done today.

    Then later in the month, we'll tackle some other small, simple tasks that have been waiting to be completed for a long time.

    Who is with us in this challenge?

    Thanks for the challenge!

    We got the laminate down. Doubt if it took two hours.

    Now I have the same problem you do, Debbie, which little job to do next. But I have a lot to choose from, sadly.

    Same here, minus the company.

    I really need to deal with my kitchen cabinets. I'm almost done sorting, organizing, and decluttering the entire kitchen. You'd think I could manage to finish it.
