    Yesterday I had a garage sale - I'll post more later....had to drive out of town for my daughters high school soccer play off game - that took care of the hours from 6 a.m. till 11:30 p.m. Now I am procrastinating my field duty at the soccer field - I have 7 minutes to get dressed and get there - good think I live 3 blocks from the soccer field and then my son just called from college to say he and 4 of his friends will be in town tonight and can they stay the night AND can I make lasagna (and no my house isn't clean and I have nothing in the has to make lasagna with). If I make it back to these boards or to my sewing machine and cutting table before tomorrow I'll be lucky...thing is I'm sad just thinking about it and ready to ditch everything I'm supposed to do and call in sick so I can stay here and at my machine!

    I know I cna't be the only one.....

    Many a day I've thought of calling in sick (mental health day) to work on my quilts. I hardly ever do though. I don't get nearly enough time to do my thing. Hopefully this weekend I'll get more done than just thinking and planning!

    Yeah-I find it so annoying anymore if I have to leave the house during the day and can't work on my projects!

    Well, I see a lot of positives in your post. Yes you won't be able to be at the machine until today, however ...

    You had a garage sale, which must have brought in some money - money is always good to have. :thumbup:

    Your son chose your house rather than someone else's house to bring his friends to and he asked for YOUR lasagna, which must be very good or he wouldn't have asked for it. :thumbup:

    You supported the kids by doing your field duty at the soccer field. :thumbup:

    Well okay, so all this kept you from being at the sewing machine, but I consider you to be very lucky to have had so much positivity going on yesterday. And I bet you slept very well last night. :thumbup:

    Now that the busy day is behind you - it's time to get to your sewing machine! :lol:

    I am dying to call in sick...wait...I AM MY OWN BOSS!!!!! I have so many big job with deadlines that I can't call into myself (so sad). I guess this board is my little "fix" until I can return to my sewing. Well...going to get some office work done now...YUCK! :thumbdown:

    I saw a joke once. Someone called in sick and was told they had used up all their sick days so in reponse she said " OK, then I'm calling in dead." hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa♥♥

    that is all so true - and while I love it - every bit of that is for someone else...quilting is for me - my time....so it is frustrating some days.

    I did have fun at the field - although my face is sun burned and after one cup of coffee and as many posts and I can read in that time then I have to go cook and clean up - but your right many positives just not the one I wanted!

    Hey you Quilter7x! Can you come live at my house??? I need someone following me around and pointing out the positives. Right now all I can see are the negative things and it is bringing me down so much that I can't even lift a finger to sew.

    This was a wonderful post. So many times we get bogged down in the darkness...it is just easier to do that.

    I know you intended this post for the original poster but you actually really gave me the boost I needed today!!! Thank you Thank you!!! :thumbup:
