For today!

Yesterday was supposed to be a good day. I was gonna run, say my good-byes to Adam (he was over the night before), and then get to work! I was really, really, really going to get some sewing shit done. And then do you know what happened? Mother nature intervened in the form of my period and some seriously painful cramps. Adam and I got up and went to this awesome tailor where he was measured and we picked out fabric for his wedding suit. It was a FANTASTIC experience! I came home and indulged in junk food, took a nap, and did nothing more but water the garden. I didn't feel guilty, exactly, just like I want to get shit done. So I did what I always do at the end of the day and visited my to do list from Monday. There was nothing to cross off. So I'm going to write out today exactly what I want to accomplish and then I'm gonna do it!

I didn't finish some things. It turns out, I had a FUCKTON of diaper fabric. So I cut out a BUNCH of small diaper covers (but only the outer layer, not the lining.) It took a while...plus it's kinda hot and I took breaks when I was sweaty. But also, after so much cutting, my hand gets sore. So I did finish a TON of cutting and have a much more manageable pile, but I also didn't finish everything. It's ok, though! I didn't get to the packages. I might get them done in the morning before work. And I am slacking on the passport. You'd think, after waiting SIX YEARS to finally have the money set aside, I'd be on that shit. But I just have so much else going on and I have to get a couple of things together for it. I'm gonna ask mom to get them while I'm at work and then try to put it together tomorrow. Anyway, I feel super accomplished and I ain't mad about everything left undone. I did SO MUCH today, and it was awesome!!!

It probably seems like a lot, but it's not really. It's only a few hours of work, if I just actually fucking do it. I hope it's really not super fucking hot, just mildly hot, and I just wanna get up and stick with it! But I guess check back later today to see if I've done it!
