Hee! Love it, HOA! I thought I was the only one. Thanks for sharing.

Donna Cummings

Sounds like you're an HOA aficionado already--woo hoo!


So THIS is why I can all of a sudden find the inspiration to wash my kitchen floor RIGHT WHEN it's time to clean out the filing cabinet....

You're a genius!

Donna Cummings

Coco, you're exactly right! Well, not about me being a genius -- LOL -- but about feeling inspired to do one task rather than another one. :)

Linda Reyburn

YESSSSS- avoidance can be so productive!! I concur.

Donna Cummings

Linda, I'm glad you feel the same way! I always love to see more avoiders. :)


Doesn't this imply that the horrible task at the bottom of the pile NEVER gets done, or is there ALWAYS something worse that needs doing?

Dona your ingenuity leaves my mind boggling! LOL

Donna Cummings

Q, to be honest, I don't think I *ever* get to the bottom of the pile. LOL It seems like there is always something I'm avoiding (I've got a LONG list of things I'm hoping to avoid today!)

I kind of boggle my own mind sometimes. :)

Mae Clair

You are hysterical!! You need to take this puppy out of beta form and sell it, LOL. Every time I have a task I don't want to do, I'm going to apply your HOA theory and run with it.

This was just what I needed today because I'm currently avoiding several tasks I don't want to do. Now I'm going to start thinking of them in terms of most awful, next most awful and so forth. Yep, goldmine, Donna! :)

Donna Cummings

Mae, I'm glad you enjoyed this. :) I actually wrote it a while ago, and I decided to update it (while I was avoiding something else!) -- and somehow it ended up publishing itself again. But I figured it had been a while and people needed this valuable information. LOL

I did a TON of great avoiding yesterday -- so much so, I'm nearly done with the draft of this novella-that-wants-to-be-a-novel. Yes, avoiding works!

Pam Abbott

So. Love. This.

You crack me up. And I can't hear you explaining it so straight faced...with a big ole smile at the end asking me if I get it! I'm assuming you used to use this one in your former profession...it's all so clear now.


Donna Cummings

Shhh, Pammie, you're gonna give away all my secrets. LOL I probably got a lot of the initial beta testing done at that time. So now it's closer to perfection. :)
