I really should have learned by now

I should have learned that procrastination doesn’t pay.  So often, when I decide that I can put off a pile of tasks, something unexpected happens.  Days like that require me to put aside birthday shopping and black-pants-finding plans, and instead spend the day, from 4am on, holding a barf bucket for a poor little person with a surprise stomach bug.

Wonderful timing, as usual.   It’s almost funny!
