I'm a 26 percenter

Last Friday on The Leonard Lopate Show they were discussing how according to a recent study, 26% percent of Americans consider themselves to be chronic procrastinators. I immediately realized "Hey that's ME!" (And the infrequent posting to this blog is evidence.) I hadn't realized it was such a pervasive problem.

The two guest psychologists answered questions on why we put things off and how it affects our health, wealth, and happiness. There was some stuff I've already read or heard about and, unfortunately, no magic bullets or cures. It was nice to get some recognition though.

Estrogen squared

More often than not, my waking hours on the weekend are spent surrounded only by the women I love and appreciate. This New Year's Day was no exception with the added bonus of also having my mother, my mother-in-law, and my wife's grandmother around. Late in the day, I was either being playfully pummeled by one of my pint-sized princesses or getting caught in the snark crossfire coming from those over 15.

I believe I just managed to keep myself out of trouble, with God's grace, and survive to see the second day of 2007. Since my Tigress was happy this morning, all's well that ends well.
