No. I think that you should not use let for leave here. Most native speakers of Standard English would not approve of it. They would regard let in that construction Substandard. Why don't you tell us specifically why you put off some of the work for tomorrow? What specifically kept you from getting all of it done on the previous day?

Inquiring minds want to know. Do not give us excuses.
