So Much To Do, Never Enough Time


Mini Goals Chalkboard by MaryKateMcDevitt 

It is Friday night, and both girls are asleep! I have a million things that I should be working on. So I thought I would share my weekend "to-do" list with you! Ya'll ready for this? (The #'s in green are really just things I want to do, but alas, I doubt they will actually happen)
  1. Sew 300+ animal pillows (that's right, 300 for my upcoming Fab.com sale .... le sigh)
  2. Finish laying out as much of issue 7 of La Petite Magazine as possible
  3. Ship wholesale samples to Australia
  4. Clean my pee stained carpet. Yes, every person under the age of 7 (that's how old Wallace is) has peed on the carpet in the past week
  5. Cook a main dish and dessert for a church potluck
  6. Clean the house..... it is looking mighty rough
  7. Get oil changed in car
  8. Clip Schroeder's nails... he has to look purty if we are to find a new home for him!
  9. Cut husband's hair
  10. Exercise! Mama still needs to drop 10 pounds!
  11. Enlarge the waistband on this AWESOME vintage skirt I purchased!
  12. Read my new House Beautiful Magazine
  13. Spend quality time with Violet... she had her last day of daycare today and she has been a sad clown
  14. Work on my NEW blog layout
  15.  Begin work on my wholesale order for Ruche!
 In other completely unrelated news, I miss writing on this blog. I don't have the time to invest in making it a "real" cool DIY/decorating/all-around-awesome blog at the moment. So it may just become my online journal again. I am feeling a bit stuck in my own head. Does that ever happen to you?

In all honesty, I have had a lot of change in my life. Had a baby. Quit my job. Now Violet is home with me the majority of the time too. Gingiber has taken off in a great way, but golly I am feeling stretched thin. I didn't take off much time for maternity leave. And am feeling a bit burned out. Yet I am compelled to work as much as possible.

Workaholic much?

Definitely.

I need a vacation.

Any advice on work/life balance? I know I need to take 2 days a week off, but my plate is so full now I don't feel like I can afford to, ya know?

Thanks for listening to me ramble tonight,

Stacie
