I saw this quote in a sig line on one of my email lists:

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
- Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

I can definitely relate. I find that I sometimes have a mental block when it comes to deadlines…if I know that I have to do something, then I tend to not want to do it…even if it is something that I enjoy. I work much better without the pressure of a deadline…

About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Me too! I am not [b]at all[/b] fond of deadlines. I had a deadline to finish a scrapbook, and suddenly it was sooo boring to do my scrapbook.

    One of my fave quotes, and also the second post about Hitchhiker’s Guide I read this week. Weird. The universe is telling me something.
