Random Tuesday and Coffee Chat

Feel free to link up with Stacy Uncorked for some randomness.

Well... As soon as my daughter returns, she leaves!  The nerve!  She came home from England, and now she's headed back up to her college home to reconnect with some friends there.  She'll be back in a couple of days, but I worry so much when she's out on the road by herself for a six hour drive.  Typical mom here!  And next year when her twin brother is living off at college, too... I don't know what I'll do!

And another daughter is coming back home for a couple of weeks!  Her school is even further away.  Nine hours!  She'll be able to stay a couple of weeks before her summer session starts.  She'll be headed back about the time I get out of school.  Eventually, we have a wedding to plan.

And speaking of school... Twelve days left including today.  That equals 96 hours.  Or 5,760 minutes. Or 345,600 seconds, not that I'm counting!

And our lovely hostess at Coffee Chat asks...

My home has several projects requiring starting/finishing.  
I hate leaving something unfinished.  
 Are you a starter or a finisher?

Well, it depends.  There used to be a time when I left nothing unfinished.  I've relaxed a lot, or you could say I just don't care as much as I probably should.  One thing I have a very hard not leaving unfinished is a book.  If I start one, chances are high that I will finish it, eventually.  I may put it down and come back to it later, but it annoys me to start one and not finish it.

If we're talking scrapbooking - well, that is a job that is never finished. I used to have difficulty with scrapbooking my photos out of order, but when you're at least ten years behind, who's going to notice if you stop and do a vacation scrapbook from 2009 before you do the chronological photos from 2006?

For household projects, I'm a finisher.  If I start cleaning out a room, closet, folder, cabinet, I want to finish it.  If it doesn't have anything to do with crafts, I'm definitely a finisher.  Creating crafts, though?  I'm a starter.

And there you have it.  Me and of my neuroses!

You just made me realize there is only just over a month left of school!!! yikes! I had better nap more. ha

I cannot leave a book unfinished. No. Just No. Who does that? How can you live not knowing the end? Even books I was not really enjoying - I finish them! I have to know how it ends. I cannot be left dangling. Nope.

Crafts. I only start and finish because I have to. If not for my duties, I would never do one. I'd rather clean my junk drawers. LOL
