Note to self: Slow Down!

Okay, the creative energy has been buzzing around here for the last couple of weeks, and that's great and fun. I'm way pumped about all the great stuff I have planned. The problem enthusiasm is about to get the best of me, and I'm about to take on one or two or four projects too many.

Let's see what I've got going on right now:

I'm participating in the Sweet Goodness Swaps' Paris in the Springtime Swap. That's due on April 28.

I'm at the stage where I can start quilting my quilt.

I'm DONE with my one niece's birthday gifts. At least that's one done!

Caroline has a birthday party to go to in two weeks--I'm making a bag for that girl.

Two nieces and my mother-in-law have birthdays in early May (May 1, 3 and 4)

In the past two years, my daughters have been invited to about four birthdays (between the two of them) in May, and I see no reason for this year to be any different.

So that's it for the crafty stuff--now let's see, is there anything else I have going on? Oh yeah, LIFE! That giant pile of laundry that greeted me this morning (it's 9:00 and I'm on load #2). Hey, what's all that stuff all over the carpet? Isn't there some kind of device that will magically suck all that stuff up? It's called a vacuum cleaner? And we have one? Who was in charge of buying dog food?

Ugh! I need to stop things for a minute and prioritize and then achieve some kind of peace between the craft warrior and the domestic goddess (although we may have to file a missing persons report on the domestic goddess...).

I can hear my washing machine beeping at me right now--and it's not the "all done" beep, it's the "error code" beep--meaning I put too many clothes in and now it's out of balance.

Sigh. As much as I love blogging and reading blogs and making new virtual friends, I'm afraid that my precious computer time is going to have to be cut back a little bit. I'll still check in, but I can't get all this stuff done if I'm on the computer as much as I have been. Of course, I'll probably post daily--that usually happens when I tell myself to cut back. I will have pictures of my latest creations when I do post--that way you'll know what I've been up to. Maybe you'll hear from me on Thursday. Have a good week.

You sound like you're getting it together ok. Computer time might suffer a little but we all might need to sacrifice a little of that (I definitely know I do). It will all work out.
