Taking a break

I thought I had better stick my head in here and leave a note. Between kids birthdays (2), Easter, party for a graduate, going away dinners for two kids, anniversary and remodeling my house, and dealing with a hurt knee, I find that I am a bit overwhelmed. I decided to take a small break from on-line stuff for just a bit. If I have the energy I will stop by but I'm giving myself the freedom to just deal with the other stuff for the month of April. I hope you will come back in May and I am hoping that I will have finished my art studio and have pictures. I am also taking an in-person class with Alisa Burke that I will have something to say about, I'm sure.

If you saw my art studio right now you would know the depth of my overwhelmingness :) I am painting the walls and putting down a faux wood floor all by myself and that is not the overwhelming part. Moving all the stuff out of the room is what has gotten me all in a tither. Oh my, OH MY! I have way too much stuff. I keep buying boxes and then running out. How can this be? I can tell you this. I am determined to limit what goes back into the room when I am all done. I keep telling myself, "One step at a time, just take this one box downstairs and then the next box and then the next. You can do this!" Imagining the room in all it's pink loveliness when it is done is helping too. So, I hope you all will be me cheerleading squad from afar and be patient that I won't be posting much this month.

Love and hugs to you all!

I understand completely Teri. I have seriously thought about it myself. Just so much going on that I am a bit overwhelmed too. I have so much on my "TO DO" list, but I have been home sick for the past 3 days. I believe it is the pollen. I can't breathe, lost my voice Sunday and haven't found it yet! Can't teach reading intervention without it. Oh well, as I always say...and this too shall pass! Got to look on the positive side. I had a little time to visit my bloggy friends.
Take a deep breath, then start filling those boxes again. It will all be worth it in the end! See ya next month.

Just keep at it, I know the process is not always fun, but it will be wonderful when it is finished.
Looking forward to seeing the results - and I know you will have a blast with Alisa!!!

Take breaks too - you don't have to get it all done at once!!!

I can easily imagine the challenge of it all... but I know you will LOVE your studio when your done and yes... we will cheerlead from afar! You go girl!!!

Just think of the sense of accomplishment you will have. And all the exercise you are getting-of course that could partly be the reason for the sore knee. I have a bit of time next week, call me if you need some help.

I hear ya! I'm trying to whittle down my scrap stuff, and it's a mighty overwhelming process! I can't wait to see the finished results of your new art room - I LOVE pink!! BTW, your 2010 verse fits perfectly with some things that I'm doing for myself - I'm going to write it down in my journal. Hugs to you!

Yes, I am sure it was. I want to hear all about it!!!
