Distractions and Procrastination

My last blog post was March 14, and it's hard to pinpoint the biggest distraction that's kept me from posting since then.  The list is long:  Pinterest, the nice weather, my grandson Jack, my television addiction, reading The Hunger Games trilogy, Twitter, reading other people's blogs, my new exercise program, etc etc.  I haven't done any of my homework for the 1940 Census release, which is probably for the best since I've read (on blogs and Twitter!) that it's running slow this morning.  I still have stacks and boxes of photographs to sort through, scan, and tag; data needs to be entered into Family Tree Maker; podcasts are piling up; and several new genealogy books are waiting for me to crack the cover.  I haven't done any real research in a couple of months.  Sad state of affairs, wouldn't you agree??!!
Perhaps today will be the day I'll skip Pinterest, Twitter, television, and other people's blogs, and get organized and make a plan to stop the distractions and procrastination.
