365 Writing Prompts: Procrastination
What have you been putting off doing? Why?
I bought some fabric to stitch a blouse and a petticoat to match my sari. I bought it in November or December, one of these months. When I got the fabric I thought I’d stitch it right away, but circumstances are beyond my control, therefore I still have it folded in my closet.
My daughter was supposed to clear out one of the rooms upstairs, I wanted to convert it into a sewing room, it has not happened yet. I don’t want to use the kitchen.
I’m still waiting for my daughter to clear the room, I think I’d have to remind her again that I need it. She can easily get a medal for procrastinating, no one can compete with her.
Today she ran ten kilometers I couldn’t ask her to make the room available for me, she told me she was very tired.
If I did something like this when I was younger my mother would have told me once if it was not done, she’d clear it herself. Why don’t I follow my mother’s example, well things have changed, I’m not at liberty to do so.
Maybe I’d write another post when the room is vacant for me to put my sewing stuff there and start sewing, I’m hoping to get my stitching done before 2015.
