I’m a “J” in MBTI Type.
I’m a type “A” personality.
I’m a first born child.
I’m slightly obsessive and OCD.
Call it what you like but I like to plan and be productive. My idea of fun is making a list, including those items that I’ve already done, just so I can check things “COMPLETE” (Bless my husband for putting up with me).
I actually have been working on my need to always be productive but it’s still a work in progress. I can usually get to about 10:30 on Sunday before the ‘Productive Patty’ in me kicks in and I feel the need to start checking things off the list. I feel like I’m wasting my day if there’s not a check list of things that I’m checking off.
Believe me I’m better than I used to be, but I’m still not there yet. I wish I could just relax through Sunday if I want to. Maybe some weekends there just isn’t anything for me to do, or there’s a better night to get those pesky tasks that haunt me done (laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping), so I can just relax all weekend.
There is a balance in here. Between being uber productive and not accomplishing anything. Between having to always get things done and wasting away the weekend.
I think that getting to 10:30 on Sunday before ‘Productive Patty’ kicks in is pretty good (but want to be ok if I never get to her on the weekend too…)
