Procrastination Poetry, or ‘To Do’ Tanka

Many tasks to do

Too much for one day, really

Yet I’m here again,

Checking my mail and Facebook.

‘It’s lunch time!’ is my excuse.


I need to pay bills

Should go shopping at Costco

Maybe do banking.

There’s baking I want to do

And, oh, yeah, cook some dinner.


I’ll get back to work.

Outside is drizzle and cold.

Inside it’s cozy

But I’ll go run those errands.

Hey, a little chill won’t hurt.

    Cute! I too do love those cozy days at home–just snuggled in with a good book and a fast internet connection!

    Hey Momma,
    I love your blog. It’s always so cute, and the way you write is awesome. You’re poems are always amazing and fun to read… Everything about it is really nice, and I’m glad that you like blogging so much, and it’s something you have tons of fun doing.
    Don’t worry about not getting enough done around the house. The house always looks great to me and I’m always amazed by how much you do get done and how you keep everything going so well.
    And just being our mom is enough.
    You’re so awesome.
    I love you. 🙂
