Good Bye Sunday

Have you ever heard the song Seven Sundays? Ahhh…so good. And I so wish there were really seven Sundays. I certainly need seven Sunday in a row cuz it seems it is always the day when I finally start to wind down only to have Sunday night appear and voila’ the stress begins.

I’d be lying to you, if I said this has been one of the most trying years. Yes, it has. I’m not sure what it is about 2013 but I feel like I have never worked so hard before. And trust me, I know how to work hard. I’m certain I can name a few that will vouche for me when I say, “I used to time everything I did and then try to beat that time.” And that included things like painting  pull knobs, priming picture frames, beading mirrors to sewing buttons. I’m crazily motivated by time. It was a good thing as one point. I got a ton of work done. I had to because I depended on myself for everything. Flash forward to today and it’s a little ..ummm…not so good cuz I expect everyone to work that way, including myself and it’s just not possible anymore. Especially with kids.

I was going to take Frank for a walk a few minutes ago and thought to myself, “That’ll take 20 minutes and in 20 minutes you could blog, fill out forms for tomorrow, and check emails.”  Ya, I  need to go find that clarity crystal and think clear. Not so much focus cuz my focus is too many places. You ever have that feeling where you can be sitting , say just blogging, and you are typing as fast as you can and you can feel your whole body pretty much shaking cuz your mind is racing and you possibly can’t get all those thoughts done? I mean I have so many thoughts that I can;t even let them in my brain for more than 5 seconds cuz I am on to the next one. I many just be going crazy.

Hmm..maybe I will go take Frank for a walk?

You are not alone! I have literally had to say out loud to myself…”Marcy, you are not allowed to leave this kitchen until the dishes are done.” Because there is always a million thoughts in my head pulling me in a million different directions.

Take time to walk the dog! Just think about the beauty of being able to walk and talk with Franklin. If you don’t take care of you and ratchet it down a notch or two … what then??

Hope you had a nice long relaxing walk 🙂

Just remember to BREATHE and that you are great at what you do!

Yes I have that same problem! I feel torn quite often between work, catching up on craft items, and my family. In the end you need to take the time for your family knowing they won’t be this little again.

Hope that you and Franklin got your walk. I can relate to not being able to calm all the thoughts running through your head, but the walk certainly can’t hurt 🙂

Um…do I spy a quilt and a hint at a swim suit????

You should hold your clarity crystal in one hand while coloring! Both very relaxing! 🙂

In all seriousness, i don’t think my mind knows how not to do 800000 things at once so I def. understand. I am forever onto the next thought and on overload in my mind.
