Rosie On The Veranda At Biltmore.

I was cleaning cabinets and drawers all day 
because I'm procrastinating.
I don't want to do my tax preparation
and update my Quicken. 
Actually, all transactions are up to date.
I just haven't categorized all the credit card statements.
That's the worst part.
It's the part I hate.
Every year,
I tell myself,
"Self, you will update in a timely manner.
You will NOT get 13 months behind.
You WILL update your Quicken 
every time you go online to pay bills.
Just so this doesn't happen to you
late March/early April every year!"

 Yeah, right.

Self never listens to me.

So, instead of doing what I was supposed to do,
I cleaned out my computer station.
And I found this picture of Rosie
 on the veranda at the Biltmore Estate.

Hey, E.A.M.,
do you think this is worthy of your consideration?

It sorta reminded me of the last pic you painted of me.

Hi Vera, We've been to Biltmore several times. It gets better and better each time. I highly recommend taking the behind-the-scenes tours. Fascinating. I've never been at Christmas time. That's on my to-do list.

I have the same dilemma every year. I wait until March to update Quicken, and promise I will update timely the next year. I think I was good until June this year, but now I have to do the other half of the year. Maybe 2012 will be better.

I'll believe Mr. P when I see it. He was going to start a club for procrastinators, but he never got around to it.
