How did this happen?

Today there seems to be a mountain of tiny things weighing on my mind. Laundry, vacuuming, taxes (both sales tax and income tax) inventory, garbage to go to the dump, post office, bank, library, office supplies, get my passport renewed, water houseplants, unload the dishwasher so the sink full of dirty ones can go in there, update my class notes, lay in groceries before the next big snow storm.... UGH! How did this happen? And, I also need to make some jewelry! Just last week I thought everything was smooth sailing. I guess being obsessed with my art journal has taken up more time than I thought it did. Today is a day to get caught up, just waiting for the temperature to rise a little and melt the dusting of snow we got last night before I go out. Then nose to the grindstone with the jewelry. I wish that all I had to do was strut my stuff in a chorus line, like the Tom Turkeys above. Wish me luck.

I DO wish you luck! It's crazy when you have a "trioity" (three things that all need to be done first). Sounds like you have a "tenority!" Best advice: don't try to eat the whole elephant. Toenail at a time.

Been there... Done that (too often.) Lots of luck and take it one thing at a time so you don't go crazy. (Been there too!)

Give yourself a HUGE pat on the back for working so hard on your art journal...and everytime you think, i'm behind, remind yourself of what you accomplished instead of what you haven't done...pat pat pat is what i say! xoxo

Passport renewed? What's the hurry?
