Gaining Traction

 Do you ever feel overwhelmed? That you have too much to do?  And although you run from sun up to sun down the list never gets smaller.  Instead it seems to grow. Almost like your spinning your wheels?

I’ve felt this way for the last week.  Fortunately, today as I dashed about doing errands I found some help.

 I’ve been asked to help build a float to be in parades this summer.  The part my hubby and I are in charge of is building the base.  This would be so much easier if our boys were not in the middle of finals and won’t be done until after our part of the float needs to be complete.  They did after all build a half pipe while we were in the hospital when my hubby’s appendix burst.  And they had a lot less knowledge then than they do now.

But like I said I found help in two of my friend’s hubby’s that are contractors.  I’m feeling much calmer now and can get back to my sewing obligations.  Something I know much more about.

    Good for you! Yes, I feel this way often too! Hang in there!

    Oh yes. I think having a family makes that feeling inevitable from time to time.:)

    I have been feeling like that all day today. I would really rather be sewing/reading than dealing with the day-to-day managing a household stuff.

    Yes, I feel like that right now – playing chauffeur and keeping up with two littles full time with no time for sewing to settle my brain is making me crazy! But it's worth it! They are sweet girls and don't seem to notice that Nana is whackadoo!!

    I know what you mean…every time I feel like I'm really getting caught up…things start piling up again! Maybe summer will be relaxing.

    thanks for inspiring me with these beautiful blocks/quilt!
