Hesitation, and not the good kind

1. indecision in speech or action
2. a certain degree of unwillingness; "a reluctance to commit himself"; "his hesitancy revealed his basic indisposition"; "after some hesitation he agreed" [syn:
3. the act of pausing uncertainly; "there was a hesitation in is "speech."

This can be a good thing if you have to make a decision as to spending a lot of money for a frivolous item, or whether to wear that certain pair of jeans that may be a little too tight...but hesitation in a car? Not a good thing. I drove almost 300 miles yesterday I my lovely POS car, which has done well for me over the years, but I know deep down that it's probably "time." Ugh. Another car payment, higher insurance, blah, blah, blah. You know the deal.

So this morning, bright and early, I was on my way to see Moxie (oh, yeah, and Nadine, too!) to finish our project, but every stop light...hesitation. Did it want to stall out, or not? I'm not going to drive 1-1/2 hours away to stall. So, hesitantly, I had to cancel. :-(...but again, that's the "okay" kind of hesitation. So off to the car doctor tomorrow to see how much longer I can keep my Honda going...

But, on a positive note, I had a blast at Rubberbuggy. Kris had a steady, busy day! I had fun demoing the Distress Crackle Paint and creating a frame for Kris at the same time (she's going to send me pictures!) I also helped with some fun MITIs. The day was topped off by the very talented MaryJo McGraw. I've known MaryJo from when I first started stamping and teaching; I've not seen her in a few years, so it was a blast to catch up. Little did I realize how much of Ranger product she used! She used the Non-Stick Craft Sheet like no one I've ever seen...a mixed medium paint palette of extraordinary proportions as well as Color Wash and Adirondack(r) Acrylic Paint Dabbers and Reinkers. And all with no apron! I was extremely impressed.
I also got two pumpkins on my way home...if you're in the Lancaster, PA, you've got to get at least something there. So, being it's fall, pumpkins!

So, it's going to be a day home to work on my projects and to keep my fingers crossed that the car is not going to be too much!

Happy Sunday to all!
