Failure to Launch

I made myself a list for today - two tasks I had to finish for my course.

After they were completed, I could do whatever I chose to do.

I chose to cut out my dress.

But now I'm suffering from Failure to Launch. It's all cut out and ready to go...but I'm not ready to sew. I'm afraid I won't be skilled enough to make it, or that it won't fit me when it's done, or that I won't like it. Or worse...that I won't get it finished in time to pack it for San Antonio next week.

Or maybe the truth is that I was feeling a bit lazy and preferred to mess around in my sewing room, cleaning and rethreading my machine while watching an episode and a half of Pushing Daisies. Maybe.

After my tasks are complete tomorrow, I'll try again.

Sometimes...we need the slow down day. Leave a spot for me on the sofa, I'll watch with you....

Tomorrow is a new day...give yourself permission to have a "failure to launch" day every so often!

Yet another person going to San Antonio -- my home town -- I might get homesick!
