Procrastination?

Oh what would I do without my Blackberry?  It has text messaging, emailing and a CAMERA! It's the best!  Although, I would like to one day trade it in for the "Storm", blackberry touch phone, but that's another day and another post.  For now my blackberry ROCKS, and always comes to back me up for photos I want to capture when I do not have my other cameras on me.
  
This first picture and thus the title of my post 'Procrastination' is my honey's car sitting on the entrance ramp to the turnpike southbound, heading to work Wednesday morning. 

He has been getting up early for the last few weeks, and when I say early I mean like 4:30 AM early.  He has decided he wants to get up early in the morning to do the work that he would normally do in the evenings taking up his time with his family.  Getting up this early in the morning allows him to get in his devotional reading, his work charts ready for the days work and even a early workout in.  The family is sleeping sound, so he isn't doing this stuff on his time with the family.  I am proud of him.  He has said for so long he would do this, but it isn't easy getting up that early in the morning, and me not being a morning person, I don't wish this on anyone.  HA!  However, honey LIKES it.  It's his choice and he said he really feels like he gets off to a better day doing things like this, because it allows him to be the first one in to the office, misses all the traffic in the mornings, and then comes home and spends 3 hours with all of us before we are off to bed again. 

Well, maybe off to a better start most of the time.....

Wednesday, I get a call as I am about to head out the door to take Hunter to school.  I hear honey tell me on the phone that he is sitting on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck and he may need me to come and get him.  

Getting to the point..... (hold on you impatient ones). 

Honey was told several weeks ago, and I say several weeks ago, because it doesn't sound as bad as a few months ago, to get his belts changed on his car.  He is 150 mile away from having 100,000 miles on his car. In which the belts have to be replaced at this time.  The guy at BMW told him this at his last service. Telling him "don't wait to your next service to get the belts replaced or you will be sitting on the side of the road." Honey assured the guy that he would get them done, being the responsible person he appears to be. 

What do you think happened? 

Yes, the belt popped this morning on his way to work causing him to be stranded on the side of the road EXACTLY as the BMW guy told him.  My honey I think was blushing a little bit this morning, when he had to call the guy at BMW for a tow and admitted he was right. He had PROCRASTINATED doing this for so long. 

Honey sent me a text saying "Lesson in procrastination today." I like that word.... when I go weeks or months asking him to do something around the house, I will use this word as his reminder of something that could have been done a long time ago and cost less if only he didn't procrastinate. HA! 

As I am sitting there on the side of the road with Morgan and honey, he says to me "yea, take a picture of this and post that on your blog." Knowing he was joking.... a light bulb went off and I thought "you know I will do just that." I get out the cell phone, walk around the back of my car in pj's, Ugg boots and all, just to snap this picture here of my honey on the side of the road.

Anytime he is refusing to "JUST DO IT" when it comes to anything in the future, I will point him back to this post and this image.  

This is a lesson to be learn by many of us, not just by honey.  Honey gets to be used for an example today.  I love you, babe!

"Just Do It" - Don't Procrastinate!!!
Now on to something much cuter and more colorful to look at.  Morgan was watching Hunter practice last Tuesday night in baseball.  She had this look on her of so much excitement and awe, and it being so cold out, she was all bundled up.  She looked so cute with all those teeth shining and her little hoodie on. I love my baby girl. I love my baby boy.  I love my honey. And I LOVE MY CELL PHONE CAMERA, for capturing so many images I love to look back on and share.

Good for Mark, getting up so early when he doesn't HAVE to! That takes discipline.

Morgan does look very excited in that picture!

What a good hubby you have (going in early so he can have more family time at night), but I'm sorry he had to learn a lesson the hard way on procrastination. lol It's great you have a picture to remember the moment, or at least remind him of the moment!

Darling pic of your little pumpkin!! She looks great in those colors!
