A day in my life, one year ago: http://minted.us/1sPyTps

I'm still striving for work/life balance—maybe that will always be a work in progress. It did make me smile, though, that we do some of the same things:

1. Drink too much mulled apple cider in the fall. (By the way, add a little caramel sauce and some cinnamon and you have a cheaper-than-Starbucks version of a Caramel Apple Spice).

2. Shop at Trader Joe's. It's the only grocery store the hubby doesn't mind going to. We love it because you can be in and out in no time.

3. Spiced pecan pumpkin bread. Need I say more?

4. Having at least one day of rest/reading/reconnecting. 

So, I'm wondering, how have you changed in the last year? What's stayed the same?

There’s a certain feeling I dread. An uneasiness, a tension that follows me around like a shadow. It nudges my elbow when I’m cleaning the dishes. It interrupts me when I’m checking Twitter. It wakes me up from a perfectly good nap. It’s that thing I know I need to do…but haven’t started yet. 

But some days, even the draw of accomplishing a goal can’t stand up to the urge I have to put things off…waste time…procrastinate. My procrastination sometimes revolves around food. So, I'm wondering, how do you procrastinate?
