Always the Procrastinator!

~ ~ ~ Happy Easter ~ ~ ~
This about sums me up . . .  especially when it comes to doing taxes. 

After waiting until almost the last minute last year, I promised myself I would not do it again.  As you've probably figured out, that promise did not work out.  My taxes are not difficult.  I use a tax program.  They are pretty basic ~ not at all complicated.  I get a small refund (though I always have to pay the state).  I guess it's just a mental block.  I've finally started them.  Well, started and finished and just need to double check . . . sigh.  Maybe next year I'll do better.
My goals for this week were to get my two small rugs bound, the bunny applique (free Woolen Willow Designs pattern, slightly modified) done and a paw print mat hooked.  The rugs are bound (see previous post) and the bunny applique will go to its new home tomorrow, a thank you to my brother's SO for cooking.   
The paw print is started ~ just barely.  I hope to hook a bit more on it tonight. 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. We get money back, so we do them right away so we can get the money, lol. Love how your bunny mat came out. Happy Easter to you and your family.


  2. Sweet bunny. I haven't collected up my stuff for tax time either. Ugh, hate doing that chore

  3. I hope you have a happy and blessed Easter.

  4. Bunny Applique is CUTE. I might procrastinate binding rugs but one thing I do NOT procrastinate is having my taxes done. No way I'd do my own so have them done by an accountant to be sure I'm not sweating.

    Hope you end well with the IRS.


  5. Love the bunny mat....your gifted should be delighted. Hubby takes care of the taxes, otherwise I would be in your boat. Happy Easter.

  6. Lovely bunny mat! lol about the procrastination! It's not April 15 yet so you're doing good. :D

  7. Happy Easter Lauren. I must have had too much candy because I stared at the Procrastination photo, waiting for it to appear. It takes me a while.

  8. HAPPY EASTER Lauren, Procrastinating is a disease and it's becoming an epidemic. Sure hope they find a cure for it soon. My taxes are not done and we have till the end of April to do our taxes.

    I love the bunny applique. The procrastination photo is a real winner.

    It looks like Christmas here this morning. We had a snow storm with high wind and drifting last evening and we didn't even ventured to the church service.

    I hope the Easter Bunny found you.

  9. Love what it says on the pug picture! Too cute! Your bunny mat is sweet Lauren. Happy Easter! Hugs, Lori

  10. I hope you have a lovely day Lauren! Lately, I feel like I have cornered the market on Procrastination. It must be the weather. :)

  11. Easter Blessings Lauren, try and enjoy this wonderful day.Hugs Francine.

  12. Florida is one of the few states without a state income tax or an inheritance tax. I can usually get all of my money back. I could claim a larger exemption and not pay so much in. However, I am one of those who like to see that money appear in my savings account.Just in time to pay for unexpected house-related emergency.

  13. Happy Easter to you and yours Lauren...I am finally out of the kitchen with my feet up...Amen...

  14. Congrats on getting your taxes done, always a good feeling.
    I took a break from the blogging world for a bit, but I'm back. Everything is looking good here at Rugs and Pugs.

  15. We have to take our taxes to our accountant because of my business and the state needs theirs in by a certain date so they have been done since January...glad we don't have to tackle them ouselves.
    Love your project.
