Apparently, my friend felt the same way. As we were leaving the coffee shop after our visit, she confessed that she had wanted to cancel. "You know, it was so gloomy out...and I felt so gloomy. But I don't feel gloomy now!"
And it's true. Just getting up the energy to begin is often the hardest thing. Once you get going, it's not hard to follow through and even - gosh, really? - enjoy yourself.
Today was the second day in a row that I missed the chance to "sleep when the baby sleeps" (rather, attempt to sleep.) I am really tired, bone tired; but I just rolled up my sleeves and dug into two memorization projects anyway. One is now complete (yay!) and the other is halfway there.
