Quartered

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?

  2. Yes, I understand....my hubby keeps telling me I am doing too much. He never wants to sympathize because he wants me to say NO more often, but NOT to him...;-)

  3. I think we all feel this. What I love about your post is that you don't seem weighted down by it...you are in acceptance mode. It is what it is and you embrace it. If you do find balance let us all in on the trick?

    Oh and if you do find ten "me" minutes don't forget to join in the linky fun.

  4. I know how you feel about spending my time on a DVD, can I really give it 2 hours, and undivided attention? I don't think so. It sounds like you have your hands full! Just take it one thing at a time.

    P.s do watch the English Patient. I liked it...but then again I like looking at Ralph Fienes :)

  6. Mmmm....the ever present dilemma of mommy-dom! And although I'd like to believe the older they get, the easier it will get, I'm learning maybe I need to re-adjust my thinking! Keep up the fantastic work!
