so it’s been a while since my last post and i wish i had some awesome fun explanation for what i’ve been up to, but i really don’t. i think a full force of cabin fever and a self overloaded plate have taken me over. meaning … have you ever had so much to do or so much you wanted to do that you actually can’t seem to get it anything done? make sense? or maybe i’m the only one.
so, i really haven’t worked on my room that was supposed to be finished last friday. fail. i haven’t pieced any more pieces of my quilt. fail. i haven’t made any more beautiful signs. fail. and my posts here have become few and far between. fail.
but there have been some successes. and pretty important successes. last monday i visited my brother and his family. my nephew invited me to be his ‘special person’ at his preschool. i spent a couple hours with him at his school on valentines day. he sang with his classmates, we played games and decorated cookies. best. day. ever.
after returning home i did come down with a pretty nasty head cold which drove my already shrinking motivation deeper in the hole. the later part of the week was spent preparing for this past weekend when we celebrate both my niece’s and mom’s birthday. another wonderful success.
which brings me to this morning when i woke up to ten inches of the heaviest snow i’ve ever had to shovel. hence the cabin fever. i am beyond sick of snow. especially after being teased with a couple days in the 50’s last week.
it has also been rather unseasonably busy here at the bed and breakfast. which, i’m not complaining, but i suppose i’m finding myself a bit overwhelmed and i can’t say i’m a person that reacts very well under stressful situations. but i’m trying to organize and get stuff done and de-stress.
i often found that when i have a lot of things on my plate i tend to cut out things i really enjoy doing, like blogging, for things i don’t really like doing. but i’m making a concerted effort to make more time for things i enjoy doing like watching dexter and painting signs and quilting and (and of course sharing it with you.)
so thanks for hanging in there and my regular posting will continue.
and i’m curious … what do you do to de-stress? or to clear your already overloaded plate?
and does anyone live where it’s sunny and warm? and if so, can i come and visit?
