I promise it won't happen again!

So ... a really weird and ... totally uncharacteristic thing happened to me tonight. I'm not sure I can talk about it, but in the interest of self therapy, here goes:

I hesitated ... for about a half an hour ... when I had the chance to go whole-hog with the Christmas decorating. All the boxes were out of the attic (thank you PDaddy), I had the time, I had ideas as to how I was going to mix it up this year, but still ... I hesitated. I laid on the couch for about a half an hour to muster up the incentive.

What is with that?!?

Of course, once I got going, I ran back and forth between rooms lugging Santas and mini-trees and ribbon. The tree-tree will wait until this weekend, but I pretty much finished everything else. (That is until tomorrow when I will tweak to my heart's content.)

Please ... someone out there in blog-land tell me that they too have hesitated to do something that they love. Please contribute to my request for free therapy.

It's not that you don't still love holiday decorating, it's just that you know what an effort it is - so you needed some time to catch your breathe and garner up the energy.

Basically, you're lazy, but so am I --
I take at least an hour to delve into anything I need to do, even the stuff I love.

I sometimes hestitate to criticize those I love (which those I love know is something I love), but it's almost always momentary. But I've never seen you hestitate on anything where decorating is concerned, I think we better go to the ER.

I don't think your'e lazy, I know that feeling of dread/mixed with anticipation of putting something together, particularly decorating. You have a vision, you want it to work, but ol' brother fear comes along to tell you you just might not be able to do it. Happens to me every time, from painting a still life or portrait to the drive to a new class (I'm always tempted to pull over and quit before it starts) and even decorating for a holiday. I always remind myself, that it is the process that is the most fun, and NOTHING turns out completely like I invisioned. I am usually happy with the outcome or I learned a lot in the trying. I have to commend you for your "keep trying" attitude and willingness to go the extra mile in all you do. That's why we all love you so much...
