I came home from visiting Justin in California to realize that Halloween was less than two weeks away. Suddenly, I am feeling the pressure to wrap up Jackson's Halloween costume.
I was at Target today and saw Halloween costumes hanging on hangers and calling my name. I could see the hours I still have left of working on Jackson's costume floating away. I realized the hours I still had left of asking my mom questions only to have her simply explain them - and yet I still would have rip out every stitch I had made in those last 30 minutes. I could see Jackson looking adorable in those Target costumes - yet I just pushed my cart to the next aisle.
I am spending a lot of time at my Mom's bridal shop. She works and I sew. She stops every once and awhile to calm me down when I start swearing, or to instruct me when my stitching is crooked. I will admit, sewing isn't my calling. It is a lot harder than I expected. Yet, I am still committed to finishing the costume. Will I go this route again next year? Maybe - but I am grateful Halloween only comes once a year.
Wish me luck!
