Ever have a party and no one wants to come?

Sent out the notice about the department picnic last week, and the directions today (serving as a reminder). Now, I know - no weekend is gonna work for everyone. And it's slightly short notice (just short of 4 weeks), so many people already have plans. But out of the first 12+ responses, I've got only ONE person (and her husband and kids) who are coming. One. Out of 14 so far.

And me.

So. The department wants to do social things, except that they don't.

The tide will turn. I know there are people who will come but just haven't told me (please, let this be true). I know that this department in particular is REALLY BAD about rsvp-ing. For anything. So I think it's not as bad as it feels. But still, gotta say, what's running through my heart is: Why don't they like me? j/k, sorta.

And it's got to start somewhere. So even if it's just me and one family, we'll have a great time.

And if by next week I still have no other takers, well... Anyone want to have a picnic in Chestnut Hill on September 10th?

That was a thoroughly embarrassing audition.

I don't expect a callback.

I hate not being able to dance like a dancer anymore.

Ah, well. Moving on.

(In other news, I am the worst daughter ever, For the first time I can recall I did not talk to my mother on her birthday. Oops. I did call her - only four days late. Oops.)

So, I'm nearly packed - or at least, I've selected most of the clothes I'm bringing. But I'm in between on two different items.

So help me decide!

I've got to choose between two pairs of boots and two pairs of cropped trousers. (Why, yes, we are the land of people who cannot make decisions!) Descriptions and Pictures (sorry, the images are HUGE) behind the cut: )

I think the hardest thing about these is that they really are almost 6 of one, half-dozen of the other: IOW, it probably doesn't make a huge difference which ones I take. I just can't take both - I don't need both while I'm down there.

So which ones??

Remember a couple weeks ago when I posted asking for a do-over?

I'm not alone:

If you're maybe noticing that you're older than you used to be, and are feeling sad / angry / confused / worried / frustrated that you haven't accomplished as much as you/other people in your present or past / annoyingly critical voices inside your head think you should have, and if you're maybe feeling something like "I'm not a real grownup like everyone else," and if you're maybe also feeling sad / angry / confused / worried / frustrated that your body isn't working the way it used to, and you're maybe thinking, "if that's true then how am I going to DO all those accomplishments that I / other people / voices in my head think I ought or want to do?", and maybe you're also wondering how are you going to dig out from under the accumulation of habit and procrastination and self-doubt to some sense of satisfaction in your life again, then post this same sentence in your journal.
