I lost a button.
An important button.
On my favorite shorts.
My favorite shorts that actually fit.
And my natural thought process went along these lines:
“Oh, I just don’t have the time to deal with this right now. After school starts, I’ll be able to stop and deal with things like this and do things like sewing on buttons. Plus, the house will be much more organized and I might have a clue where the button is.”
Mmm-hmm. Delusional. That’s me.
Really, if I don’t stop and sew on a button on a summer day, I’m not going to do it on a school day.
Now, I’m not trying to say it’s okay to just ignore clothing repairs because of how my brain works. I’m saying it’s NOT OKAY to ignore them. I should be doing this now. Waiting until I “have more time” is an excuse, and I need to stop making excuses.
And just a little tip in case you’re prone to lame excuses regarding button-sewing, IF the zipper is one that stays up on its own, just fold the button tabs in, and wear a long shirt.
I may be a procrastinator, but I’m also practical.
