Lack of motivation

Today is a "blah" day.  While lacing up my Elizabethan (this time without cats attempting to "help") it occurs to me I so need a new corset.  Glancing at the local weather forecast, it occurs to me I so need a new coat and therefore need to get busy on the planned mockups.  We have a week of daytime temps getting above the freezing point and nighttime staying above the mid-20s (Fahrenheit) and therefore the perfect time to get cracking on at least one of the mockups.

I also have two "UFOs" - UnFinished Objects.  One is the denim slacks I have already cut out for Simplicity 2562 and the other is the doublet from Simplicity 4059 for my friend's Renn Faire garb (that I was supposed to have done for last spring's Faire!) where I have the fitting part done but haven't cut into the actual fabric that has been in my sewing area since ... late March of 2010.

So ... am I doing anything?  Other than contemplating a third cup of coffee - and my coffee mugs are 14-16 ounces - not a thing.  Of course, another mug of coffee requires I make another pot of coffee as hubby had his schedule shifted and helped me kill off this morning's pot.

There's gotta be some motivation here somewhere ...

Sometimes the only place to find motivation is in the dictionary.
