Cruise anyone?

So my family is considering taking a cruise. I would love to! I want to hit different ports like PR, Haiti, Grenada…but we will see. Of course I cannot do any of this without a passport. So that “thing” may be moved off of the list if we get this trip going.

I will surely be happy to strike something off of the list.

I had the chance to go to Hawaii…no $$. I have a chance to go to New Orleans, LA (I have been before so I don’t want to include it, but I guess I can since it would be travel and it has been soooo long.) I just have to get airfare. I think I should be able to handle that…no? Well, with my credit cards maxxed out…not so much. Hence that is also on the list.

It is all so intertwined…but I need to pull out my tweezers and separate them and attack.

I am ready. Let’s go!



Get my CMP certification. (read all 3 entries…)
ELIGIBLE!

I received my letter of eligibility today! Woo hoo!
Completed the first step. Next steps…pay exam fees, select testing date, study, study, study.

Excited!



stop procrastinating (read all 10 entries…)
Hmm...maybe later.

That was a joke.

I find that I procrastinate because I am avoiding something, or I think it is going to be hard or take a lot of time.

This just leads to more anxiety as the deadline looms over my head. But what I have found, more often than not, is that the task usually is not that bad. In most cases it is way less complicated and could have been done eons ago. I just won’t start sooner.

I know better, but I don’t do better.

Any tips?
