Overcoming Procrastination - Schedule those Appointments!

As a foster mom for four teenage girls, part of my job includes making doctor, dentist, dermatologist, orthodontist, optometrist, etc. appointments. 

Sometimes I'm not as kind to myself. Last week I made three appointments I've been putting off for months. I've heard of some people who make all their annual appointments at the beginning of the year. I like that idea, but didn't do it. So now it's done! And it took me all of 15 minutes!

What about you? Do you have appointments you've been avoiding? We all have good reasons: it costs too much, mammograms hurt, colonoscopies are scary, it takes too much time, a root canal is no fun, I have to take off all my clothes, and on and on.
Take a few minutes and get it over with! You'll be so glad you did.
