Do You Plan Your Time, Or Are You A Spur Of The Moment Kind Of Person?!

      I know it's kind of a deep question for 'Hump Day' (Wednesday), but since I'm a time planner ^_^ I planned it for today!! Also, something came up...again!...this morning between hubby and I, and I thought now would be the time to find out if it's me, or if it's just another one of those cases of "It's not YOU, it's me"! ^_^
       As I tell you what happened I'll share some of the great finds from the Etsy activity feed I found!...

      So here's the story...I'm a planner. Wait! I already told you that! LOL...But what I didn't tell you is that my constantly planning and checking to make sure all of my 'ducks are in a row' sometimes drives my husband crazy!!...You see, he's a 'spur of the moment'...I'm talking sometimes LAST MOMENT! UGH!...kind of person. O_O
      I can't tell you how many arguments...Well, maybe argument is too strong of a word...struggles...butting of heads...disagreements...fracases...blow-outs...Okay, I guess arguments does work! ^_^ ...we've had about his timing. Or lack thereof, in my opinion! Grrrr!

      This morning it happened again!...I was getting my schedule set for today's activities, writing my list of 'To Dos', when he interrupted my train of thought to tell me he was leaving early. O_O 
      "What?!...Wait! I need to coordinate some plans with you for later before you leave! O_O And I need you to get some things out of the back room for me!...And there's some things we need to do together that I can't do by myself, and now I'll have to wait on you before I can start them! Ugh! O_O" ... His usual:
     " can wait a little while, right?!...I have to do something for the boss earlier than usual, and I have to go now!!" ... ME: "Why didn't you give me a 'heads up'?!"...HIM: "I didn't think it would matter."...*steam rising from my head*...I better show you some of my latest crochet pins NOW!!! LOL...

      Is it a man/woman thing?! Or just a me and my hubby thing?! ^_^ ... I HATE getting things dropped on me at the last minute!! HATE it!!...H-A-T-E!!!! Grrr! And when I make a point of the fact that all he has to do is give me a 'heads up' and I would be fine. He says: "No you wouldn't!!"...I say: "How do you know?! I never get the chance to find out. Stuff keeps getting dropped on me at the last minute!!!" LOL
      I think it's simple courtesy to say: "Hey, Babe...tomorrow morning I have to leave a little earlier than usual."...Obviously my planning ahead for things is not his idea of a great thing to do!! ^_^
      Don't get me wrong, I think spontaneity has it's place! You know, like when he plans a special 'virtual date night', or he brings me an unexpected gift, or when we plan to do something nice for someone else at the last minute!...But, as a general rule, that 'last minute' thing drives me crazy!!!!!
      I don't like to find out that he wants to go out and fix the car at the same time that I thought we were flipping the bedroom mattress, or doing the grocery list, or folding the clothes!...Could I do those things alone?!...Yes!...But when you have it in your mind that you are doing those things 'with' someone, it's really aggravating to find out 'at the last minute' that you're doing them alone!!...especially when, like I do!, you give your husband a 'heads up' the day before, to let him know what you plan to do the next day...and he agrees!!!...but then the next day....HE FORGETS!!!...and says: "Oh can do it without me though, right?" Grrrr!
       Suffice it to I just did! LOL...I do not like last minute, spur of the moment, plans dropped on me! ^_^ Now if only I could get my husband to think this is as big of a deal as I just alluded to! LOL

      Rant Over!! LOL...I'm still working on my 'To Do' list for today and I have to do my hair now. :-) {I didn't get the hair cream I needed until late yesterday so that I could do it. So, 'Do Hair' went on the list for today instead. :-)) ...Hubby forgot to pick it up from the store! LOL He had forgotten to get vinegar for me the day before that, and vinegar was the only thing on his mind when he went into the store yesterday...not hair cream! Hair cream required a 'last minute' run! ^_^}

      I give him a hard time, but the truth is he has a lot on his plate right now. His job, me, his mom, me, cooking, me! LOL I'm gonna try to ease up a bit on my expectations...while trying to gently get it through his head that I HATE last minute, spur of the minute, things dropped on me!!!!! LOL...Do I need coffee?! ^_^

      Have a good day, Everybody! :-)

Ease, By Rhyme

To ease my mind,
I jot down a rhyme.

When forced to think,
my brain cells link.

With emotions on paper,
anxieties taper.

With the flow of my pen,
I'm  at peace again.

And to jot down this rhyme,
brought ease to my mind.     


  1. You write so easy, it reads so easy, like two friends having a cup of coffee and chatting. Thanks for sharing and also for sharing my photography! Blessings on your day.

    1. Awwww!...Thank you so much, Carla! ♥ The truth is I write my blog from the perspective of talking to a friend...editing every once in a while as I go, of course! :-)) I wish I could say I work hard at it, but honestly, talking and writing comes really easy to me. I only wish I had know that back when I could've made a living doing it! LOL...By the way, it was my pleasure sharing your photo!! :-) Have a good one!

  2. Lol I agree with Carla, it's so easy to read what you write. I also think it's a bit of both a man/woman thing and just a person thing. There's always one who likes to plan and one who likes to fly by the seat of their pants lol.

    Thanks so much for including my crochet pizza blanket and chef hat =D

    1. Ha! Ha!...Yeah! I forgot 'fly by the seat of your pants'!!! LOL That's a good way to put it!! ^_^ ... And, my pleasure sharing your pizza blanket. I wish I thought of crocheting one myself!! I' not that creative though...and I don't have a cute baby for inspiration. :-)

  3. I thoroughly enjoyed reading and thank you for including my blueberry candle!

    1. Thank you, Jennifer! :-) And the pleasure was all mine! :-) I wish I had 'smell-O-puter!! LOL
