What’s Stopping You?

Earlier today, I looked out the window and everything looked gray and wet.  Yet, the sky kinda’ had a hit of promise.  And I thought to myself, how wonderful it would be to pull out my watercolor paints and try to paint it.

But I didn’t.

Because the dog’s colon was beyond disagreeable. . .

And the kid got up early. . .

And I had to flip the laundry. . .

And I was supposed to be packing for a trip. . .

And the basement was a mess. . .

Now it’s midnight and that lovely light has become darkness.

And I’m exhausted. . .

And I still have to flip the laundry. . .

And now I have to unpack for the not-taken trip. . .

And the basement is still a mess. . .

And the dog could still be sick or the kid could awake at any moment. . .

And I wonder. . .

What was really stopping me?
