I have been away too long and have missed all of you so very much. I've been preoccupied with life's usual busyness which has not included time spent quilting. I knew this was coming but it doesn't make me any more accepting of the changes I've had to make.
I envy those of you who juggle far more than I and yet manage to accomplish beautiful things, and that's why I keep coming back here for inspiration. I am who I am and I won't beat myself up anymore for not being what I wish I could be but I can strive to do better and this is the right place to find good role models.
I am not an organized person.
There you have it.
I get too distracted by things that need doing while involved doing other things. Such as: I go into the kitchen to unload the dishwasher and in the midst of doing that see that the dishtowels need washing so I take them to the laundry room only to find that there is a load of clothes that need to be folded. So I take the load of clothes to the bedroom to fold, dump them on the unmade bed, fold them, make the bed and while putting the clothes away pass by the kitchen and see I haven't finished unloading the dishwasher but notice the newspapers need to go in the recycling bin but there's an article I want to read before throwing it out so I decide it's time to take a break anyway and fix myself a cup of tea, read the article...but there's still tea in my cup so I think, well I'll check my email and then I think "I wonder what's going on with QWU" and 3 hours later I take my cup to the kitchen and the dishes are STILL not put away!
Am I the only one who does this?
Of course, I realize there was a time not long ago when I held a job and didn't have the luxury of squandering time like this. When you work you do everything in a time crunch or it doesn't get done. Maybe it's because I'm not on a time line that I have lost all sense of time. But that's coming to an end soon as the spectre of the J-O-B looms over head once again.
I still put quilting last though, after the dishes are done, the beds made and the laundry done-which is never done. Why is that?
So before I hit the kitchen to throw together something that resembles supper, I'll read a few of your blogs and discussions, get inspired and make myself get busy.
It's a new day.
Even if it is 6 P.M.
