You know those days when it feels like everything that needs to be done finally catches up with you and there is no way you will ever finish it all? I'm having one of those days. I've got a million things going on all at once and I feel like I'm running behind.
First there's the things I need to do, including but not limited to:
-Gather all the supplies, print, and assemble the invitations for my cousin's bridal shower next month (and yes, I do have to make them because this cousin saw the invites I made for my other cousin's shower)
-Plan said bridal shower
-Design wedding invitations for the same cousin
-Finish designing the menu for The White House
-Tweak the design and order drink tokens for The White House (from Bullfrog Laserworks, they've been great to work with!)
-Design and print business cards for The White House
Did you know I'm now a graphic designer? Because I didn't. I like helping my family when it comes to design stuff, but it all happened to be piled on all at once.
Then there are the things I should do, even though I should probably be focusing on the "need" list
-Make a quilt to donate for the AHA Heart Walk
-Sew together the first items for my shop
-Finish my wedding recaps
-Blog here daily (because I need my daily fix from all of you!)
-Actually get some exercise for once
Of course there are always things I want to do (this is where most of the sewing comes in)
-Finish my Nicey Jane patchwork quilts
-Make myself a dress
-Finally put together the tutorial for the ruffle quilt
-Make a market tote for my mom
-Make the million other quilts that are constantly running through my mind
Oh yes, I also need to clean my apartment (we have company coming this weekend) and work a 40 hour week at the job that actually puts food on the table, where there is another list that is just as long as this one if not longer.
So when am I supposed to rest to get rid of this sinus infection and ear infections in both ears? I think I need an assistant! And a nap.
I'm sure most of you are in the same boat as I am... what do you do when you're feeling overwhelmed?
