End of Crafting Weekend

I’m back from my long weekend of crocheting with my daughter.  I got some stuff done and definitely organized a bunch of other things but I didn’t accomplish as much as I wanted to.  I have two shawls started for her and one I’m hoping to finish this week.

Tonight has been recovery from driving.  I’ve got my feet up but still in a bit of pain from the drive.  I’m trying to stay awake so I can take a second dose of Tylenol before I go to sleep.

It was great to sit at my daughter’s apartment and work.  I got some stuff done but the time with her was wonderful.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time with her.

She had all sorts of goodies for me including the softest most scrumptious afghan she knitted.  It is absolutely lovely.  I LOVE it.  She also made me a shawl and wristers and spoiled me thoroughly.

Now it is back to the regular schedule.  Spring break is over on Monday and I’ll be facing advising issues as well as registration issues which starts next Monday.  It will be a busy month for April.  I have a lot of work to get done for writing and crocheting.

My niece is getting married the beginning of May and my daughters are all going to be home for it.  This in and of itself will be wonderful but I want to have my oldest daughter’s afghan worked on so I can show her it – maybe finish it (it is complicated not holding my breath on that one).

I have two novels I’m working on and hope to finish sooner rather than later but you just never know how the creative flow is going to go.  However, my day job is going to be stressful and busy for the next few weeks with registration so crocheting is generally a better option.

It feels like this year is flying by and I don’t have nearly enough time to get all the things done I want to.  We are already at the end of March, a quarter of the year is gone.  How does this happen so quickly?

It doesn’t matter, I’m just going to work on balancing all the things I have going on.  Bridal shower, wedding, daughters visiting, us traveling, and so much more.  It’s all good.  I just have to keep it all straight and balanced… don’t worry I’m not holding my breath on it… just doing the best I can.
