Because sometimes you kick butt...


...and sometimes you get your butt kicked.   And my life right now is firmly situated in the latter category.  Apparently I bit off way more than I can chew over the last couple of weeks (and in the next couple of weeks to come) and I've had a constant feeling that I'm holding things together by a very fine thread.  And honestly, I'm doing that with far less grace than I should be.  I'm a little more snappy and a little less pleasant to be around nowadays.  But the fact is that everything that I'm finding overwhelming at the moment are things that I've signed for or agreed to so the pity party stops here.  Yes, there will be no more sewing (aside from obligation sewing) for the next couple of weeks.  And yes, I find myself constantly carrying around a stack of note cards that I should be studying from.  And yes, I'm tired.  Oh so tired.  But things should be calming down around mid June and that is going to make this summer that much sweeter. 


Or at least that's what I keep telling myself.


  1. Yes, school and life must be keeping you pretty busy these days! Keep breathing, summer will be here before you know it! :-)

  2. Oh Carolyn, that sounds hard. But once you're one the other side it's going to feel so good! :) In the meantime, I'll miss you're sewing. :)

  3. I hear ya. You'll get through it!! My motto for the past few weeks is a rather bleak: "oh, it will blow over. eventually." Whatever works, right? But it's also true. This too shall pass.

  4. Oh I hear ya. Sometimes I feel like I'm barely keeping my head above water too. Hang in there and I hope you get a little time to sew just for the fact that it helps clear my head a lot of the time!

  5. I've always thought if only we could harness the static electricity created by kids on a slippery slide and use it for good, but instead it's just us parents who get zapped!
    Best wishes for whatever comes next.

  6. Yep. I hear ya. Or... What you're trying to say is out of the goodness of your heart you are giving others the chance to develop patience and charity. That is so wonderful of you! ;)


A comment? For me? You're the best!
