A columnist in the local paper (Patty Fisher in the San Jose Mercury) wrote, “I’ve been planning to write this column about procrastination for weeks, but something always seemed to get in the way.” And “I’m intimately familiar with the consequences of putting off until tomorrow what I could have done today.”

The phrases I learned were “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can put off until the day after tomorrow.’
And, “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you should have done yesterday.”

She goes on: “Why do I lie in bed on weekends instead of jumping up and doing my to-do list? Because I still hear my father chastising me for wasting the morning. Now that I’m in charge of my time, I revel in the right to waste it.”

I, too, would like to sleep in some mornings. But Eric comes at set times to make my bed, and other chores, and if he makes the bed with me in it, it makes the bed kinda lumpy.

The following video isn’t really humor, but certainly very touching:
