Goal Oriented

Although I'm a type b kinda girl, I'm also extremely goal oriented.  Oh,  how I want to get things done.  I just don't want to go through all the boring, tedious steps to do it right.  Which leads to a lot of half-assing things.

I skim e-mails from my kids 3 schools.  Sure education is important, but it's like they're forcing me to read The Old Man and the Sea again or something.

I don't read (never mind follow) directions well.  And my sense of direction?  It's horrendous!

I won't bother with things like priming a surface or other things that you can't see with the naked eye.

If the car starts what does it matter that the check engine light has been on for over a year?

I don't think I've ever used ALL the screws that come with the Ikea furniture.

Cleaning the oven?  Really?  News flash:  It's only going to get dirty again.

Same with ironing. It's a vicious, pointless cycle that was meant to be broken.

And I can make a 30-minute workout even shorter by not doing the warm-up or the cool-down.

How often are you supposed to change your toothbrush?  Wait, don't even tell me.

I shove things into my cabinets/closets then unmeticulously arrange it just enough to close the door.

Sudoku?  Crossword puzzles?  No one sees how sharp or dull my mind is.  So, huge waste of time.

I could come up with other examples, but frankly, I'm too lazy.

So basically, my goal is to conserve energy.  
And I think in this day and age we all know how important conservation is.  

(Wait until you see the big reveal on my half-assed home improvement project on Monday.)

A kindred spirit. I am lazy and proud of it. I agree with almost everything you said, except priming (you just have to do it over), and the check engine drives me crazy even though the mechanic usually just whacks it once and it goes off.

Oh, and Ikea packs extras just to play with your mind.

Seriously - are we the same person?

Hehehe....thanks for the giggle, Marie! I feel a bit conflicted about this. I'm too scared of most things so I do my best to read and follow instructions. It doesn't mean I enjoy it though or that I'm not lazy. When painting, I hate the idea of priming too although luckily, I've never had to do it. Painting on the builder's white is pretty straightforward, thank God. Otherwise, we'd have to compare 'notes' / pics this coming week! Anyway, looking forward to the continuation of this.... ;-)
