    to get around to sth

    I'm busy person and I often have no time to do everything what I plan. Is it correct if I say for example:

    1. I meant to do it, but somehow I never got around to it.
    2. I meant to do it, but somehow I never get around to it.

    Use #1.
    Otherwise, for a habitual action you can say:

    I mean to do it, but somehow I never get around to it.
