Maybe you have been wondering what has happened to me as I haven't been posting for awhile? I have been finding it very difficult to divide my time between work, crafting for an upcoming show and sale, and trying to spend a little bit of time with my family.
I feel I have been falling flat on all accounts. I haven't been to work in a week, as I somehow managed to get an inner ear abscess, that pretty much had me down and out for a few days and left me deaf in the affected ear. It seems every spare minute I have, I've been working on my craft show and sale stuff, and yet when I look at my inventory, it seems like I have done very little. My house is a disaster, the cookie jar is empty and my guys are complaining that I never have time for them anymore.
So it seems I am not accomplishing much.
As I started to feel a bit better last week I decided to put the crochet hook down and do some house cleaning... wow... my house really needed it, so that was one improvement. When I went grocery shopping I deliberately stayed away from the fast-meal preparation areas and went for the more wholesome choices... which also actually require some cooking time! And then on Sunday I started starching some of my sale items.
So now I feel like I am back on track - somewhat. Although I have yet to fill the cookie jar, I have a clean house - even re potted some plants, I have stew cooking in the crock pot and bread rising in the oven, and I have starched and glued together, 39 bears, 4 mice, several hats, soldiers, and dressed 9 angels....
And staying off the computer definitely helped me accomplish these tasks.
Tomorrow I hope to share some pictures of my productive few days... stay tuned!
