    I don't use my oven often and at some time previous I had bought a can of oven cleaner. Spilled something in the oven and went and dug out the cleaner and it had lost it's pressure, was 5 years old by the date

    I put off plumbing jobs until they can't be ignored any longer... We live in an older house, and sometimes a simple job turns into a lot bigger problem due to aged pipes and fixtures.....

    I would be embarrassed and it would give me anxiety if I wrote it all down. not that it is not already written down here on the table. mostly all fixing the disaster of a yard I inherited upon purchase of this home and making it look decent.

    glancing at my daily to do list, which I keep broken up into blocks of days off, I can already tell you that most of it, ain't getting done. I am off this weekend and will be off again Wed/Thurs. Maybe then....likely not. I've been off since 0530, but need to go back to the office at 0800. Started work at 1700 yesterday. So yeah when I get done with all that I'll be lucky to take a crap before passing out.

    I know that doing one job always leads to another, there is never a quick fix.

    Wife nags me if I put stuff off too long. Sometimes she explains a job she wants done, and I jump right on it..............she's like, I didn't mean right now

    Sometimes, if you do procrastinate long enough the "task" gets done by "someone else", becomes redundant, (you sell the car, House, gun) or it just falls off and is no longer needed !! :outtahere:
