Times a-wastin'

Do you ever get that feelin'? That you're falling behind. But not just on one thing. It's all a game of this-begets that-begets that-begets this! I feel so behind but I can't just pinpoint one thing that would get me back on track.

If only...
I
could catch up on my laundry, I could
straighten up the basement, then I could
have the guy come to fix the air conditioner (so we can be cool this summer!), and I could
also have my art room moved downstairs.
If only I could catch up on homeschool, I could
clean my art room and
organize my bedroom and
list all that homeschool I have to sell.
Then I could have money from the sales to fund our much needed summer vacation.
If only...

It's all a catch 22 really. *sigh*
Okay, enough moaning. I've been sick for almost a week now, except for a surprisingly good-feeling day on Friday when I artsied (is that a verb?) with a friend. I paid for it on Sat/Sun with being ill in bed. That is probably why I feel so behind. I did start some ATCs then that I finally finished up today while the kids were doing spelling words and taking a science test.

Saw Audrey's gorgeous work in the May/June Somerset Studio (p. 101). Also saw another favorite artist of mine, Misty (p.12 & featured on 37).Have you picked up your copy yet?!

I'm drooling over these new stamps sheets I've seen around:
Oxford Impressions Bird Sheet
Invoke Arts Blackbirds, Build Your Nest
Do you sense a theme to my envy? lol

Okay, back to cleaning my art room. I finally saw a corner of my long buried table today! Hurrah!

Kris....I know exactly what you mean about falling behind and then just when i think i am caught up i have to start all over again, lol. Love your creation....'fragile' says it all. That little baby looks so precious nestled there. Just got my Somerset a few days ago and i have to say it is one of my favorites. How is the art room cleaning coming along? :o)

Ever heard of Fly Lady? My favorite quote from her: "You are not behind. Just jump in where we are."
