I'm sure many of you mothers feel this way.Pulled in four directions by obligation, not horses. Children maybe. And only pretend swords.
That's how I feel this week. Too many things I want to enjoy and accomplish, the short list being knitting, blogging, working on inventory for my future Etsy shop that I'd like to have up by October, cooking, fall cleaning, doing a graphic design project for a friend, organizing our chaotic basement mess, finishing the flower beds around the garage, painting exterior doors, knitting, wait, I said that already. And of course, spending time with SoJo. And some part time work on art activities for another project that has re-emerged (non-blog-related). Oh, and I was at the museum again yesterday, working, so I didn't get much time to be online, yet again.
I was fantasizing on the ride home from my friend Shana's house this afternoon about movies that I'd like to watch, even random ones like Yentil and The English Patient, neither of which are among my favorites. But thinking of spending two hours watching DVDs is not an option: there are just too many other exciting things to spend my time on.
So here I am, quartered by many things, and am in need of extra arms and legs to be pulled. Any takers?
