tomorrow-today-yesterdayThere we go, it’s now all set. I’m going to do it tomorrow.

I’ve given this a great deal of thought. Why, even yesterday I was thinking of tomorrow and now look – it’ll be tomorrow, tomorrow.

There’s nothing impulsive about my decision. This has been going on for a long, long time. Careful planning, the weighing in of options and consequences and what the hopeful outcome will be. No, no, I’m not taking this lightly…this tomorrow thing. It’s going to happen and happen soon; why it’ll be tomorrow, as a matter of fact.

Friends have told me, in a nice way that I was delaying when I told them that it’s happening tomorrow. I guess they just don’t listen that well. I’m sticking to my plan, the one I’ve had since the beginning – it is tomorrow.

You know, for years people have said that I’m a procrastinator but I’ve always believed that I can’t be anything I cannot spell. (Spell check fixed it for me.)  So there.

Tomorrow gives me enough time for the final preparations. I have all of today to prepare for that next day which is called tomorrow.

You know, it’s funny. I could have done all of this last week or even a year ago for that matter but then I wouldn’t be able to do it tomorrow which I’ve already told you is my firm, unchanging plan.

Annie was correct when she sang, “the sun will come up…”

When tomorrow comes, I’ll be awake, fresh, ready and all set to go with my prepared plans. It’ll be a cinch once I begin all this tomorrow. Just you wait. You’ll see.

I don’t like this “just get it done” mentality that some people have. What if there are errors or mistakes. What do you do about them then? Then it’s too late. You can’t go back. Waiting isn’t the worst thing in the world, is it? Diligence is the best practice.
Well, okay, let’s see. Do I have everything for tomorrow? Am I all set? Do I need to reshape or rethink anything more? Let’s see, when is tomorrow? Oh, how silly of me, tomorrow is the next day.
Then tomorrow suddenly becomes today.
