Anybody besides me eat to put off doing something we know we should be doing but don't want to? I hate housework. Have you ever had dishes to do, laundry piled up, dust you could write your name in, can't see through the windows, stuff knee deep on the floor, and it's staring at you to be done and you decide you better eat something?
I am basically a lazy person. I have to be committed to someone or something else for getting something done. There has to be a deadline. Someone has to be noticing if I am accomplishing anything. I could never sell real estate or insurance because those people set their own workday and are self-starters. I take on too many commitments as a rule because I don't know when to quit - is this a trait of people with eating problems? How long of a stretch can you sit still and do nothing but maybe watch TV or read? This isn't a real calorie burner I have found.
I do love flowers, so, of course, I have more flower beds and flowers than a small army could handle. If I get on a daylily kick, for example, I think I have to have every color - same with clematis vines, etc. I love to quilt, so, of course, I have stacks of fabric that should last me until oh, say, the next Haley's Comet passes by. I have so much food around this place. I have thrown out more celery and other produce than I care to think about. If there is some kind of disaster, all of you are invited to my house, I've got the canned goods to cover it.
Do any of you eat as a means of procrastination? Can you identify with any of these other stunts of mine?
