If you know me at all, you're probably aware of the fact that I'm the queen of procrastinating, whether it comes to chores, taxes, or cleaning... you name it, I'm not doing it. However, I will say it's only the beginning of April and I already have my Easter baskets planned. Do I deserve a trophy? Maybe honorable mention? To be honest, I'm not sure.
