Today Kathie commented "I really enjoy visiting your blog. I am always impressed with how much you squeeze into a day. Do you ever sleep?"
First of all thank you Kathie for the compliment about my blog! And secondly I felt I really wanted to answer your question, since I often find myself curious on how others do it and I wish it was something more people would talk about.
The thing is that I am neither a workaholic nor do I excel in efficiency - and I do need a lot of sleep. I am not the sort of person that would say "my life is soo hectic and I love it!!" And while I probably appear fairly composed most of the time, I can be pretty frazzled on the inside. I think I have a tendency to make things look easier than they actually are for me. So I don't have any great time managing tips to spread around! Though I am very fond of list making and taking big tasks and turning them into several mini tasks in order to not be overwhelmed. Also I got a few things going for me, personality wise. For instance I am very project driven and disciplined - I am pretty good at buckling up and getting on with it because I know it will pay off in the end, even though the road there will be less than fun. Also I am a rather optimistic person in general, and that helps too.
But this morning for instance, I had something of a breakdown and was pretty close to calling it quits and even cried a bit. Everything I did went horribly wrong and it didn't help that I felt pressed for time since this is the long Easter holiday and the kids are with their dad so I wanted to squeeze in as much sewing as possible today so that the rest of the weekend could be work free. I feel a little better now, but am still on the fence if I should keep up with this workload or not.
So that is my story! :)
Oh and Kathie also wanted to know more about the red sneakers, they are called Mobile and are also available in a fantastic apple green colour and classic white/black.
