Overwhelmed

spottedhorse

Do you ever feel just totally overwhelmed? I do. And I am right now.

We've had a horrible sickness invade our household. A yucky sort of sickness with fevers that make you want to sleep 18 hours a day and chest congestion that leaves you feeling weak due to lack of oxygen and all that effort spent on coughing. It's finally on its way out the door now. But if you've been wondering where I've been, I've been in bed, sleeping and coughing.

Bendy doll order

During the holiday season I take a break from many of my responsibilities as I just get too busy with business crafting. My husband helps out more around the house and we take a break from homeschooling. This frees up time so I can do crafties as a full time job.

Right now my to do list is long and I'm wishing I could just have two more weeks of full time crafting so I could knock out the list. But school has resumed and my husband has returned the apron and laundry basket to me. Health is returning (yahoo!). And I have managed to cross a few things off the to do list, as evidenced by the pictures in this post. Progress is being made. It really does help to see it in pictures.

Glad health is returning

Everything is so very sweet Danielle. I hope that your energy returns and the sense of being overwhelmed leaves you soon. I hate that feeling.

Oh, and I love your pictures, pretend that it is a visual checklist and keep on posting!

Aww, sweetie, big hugs. I always feel overwhelmed. I have 4 kids, 2 jobs, a blog (which is my fun stuff) and quilting, who wants to give THAT up!? LOL. Oh ya, and a house that is always needing my attention. I made a committment to myself this year 2008 to simplify as much as possible. Not do TOO much. I'm now on b/p medication for hypertension! I know, I need to lose, but it's my stress levels too. Don't overdo! Take a bath, Do something for YOU! you deserve it!
