I had a dream the other night…  that I had written out 15 blog posts and posted them all online in one day.. I was having an anxiety attack that I should have spread them out over two weeks…

Luckily I woke up.. then I had an anxiety attack that I didn’t even write one blog post in the last two weeks..

What in the world has Haggy Housewife been doing? You ask…

Well… being haggy for one.. two writing a cookbook…

Oh that sounds easy …

Yeaaahhh ok…

First lets go back four months ago..
A friend of mine is getting married in a month or so and she had requested some recipes from me for a shower gift.. and because I have the Jarvis blood “cruising” through my veins I wanted to wait till the last possible moment to start thinking about this collection of recipes.. I knew of people who had books printed of their wedding pictures with blurbs of words and what not so I thought there should be a site where I could get a cookbook printed… half searching I finally found one and settled down to upload the recipes..

Then they changed the shower date on me…

I wasn’t even close to having this book completed so I put it on the back burner for several weeks because that deadline was quickly approaching  and why have anything done weeks ahead of time… those last minutes is when everything should be done.. right?

You would think being 30 some years old I would have learned that nothing is gained by rushing.. it is like my justification on cleaning house for company.. if I do it too early everything will get trashed before they get here so lets wait till the day of…
Anyways back to my procrastination issues (something I had made a resolution not to do this year.. but I have been procrastinating on starting to not procrastinate.) So I poured myself into this book… the template this site had was not what I wanted but for the price is what I needed.. I had to pour over each and every recipe to make sure of the spelling, grammar and flow of the recipe was right.. Mama and Jessica started helping… Dishes started piling up..Laundry baskets are over flowing and I kept a headache since last week.

But it is done.

It is like when you open the fridge and it spells like something crawled in there and died… when you finally clean it all out and find that open container of beans you forgot to use last month and now when you open it everything is organized and sparkly… this is what it feels like..

Ok maybe not everyone has a fridge like mine.. or keeps one like me.. just picture something that bugs you so much you have dreams of it and once you have completed the task that weight is lifted and you can now turn that focus on something else.

For me it is blogging..

I do enjoy blogging but sometimes to sit down and make any sense of my thoughts can be a uphill battle…
If I am in a foul mood because of X Y and Z then all that comes out of me is hate hate hate grump grump whine whine point fingers at this person blame that person.. so on and so on..

But now that I have completed this book I have no more excuses right?

Give me a few minutes and I will think of several.

Hope your friend truly appreciates the sacrifice your chilluns made while they
were chained to the kitchen sink.
