What was I thinking...



Sometimes I really have to wonder why I commit to things. Tonight I'm teaching a bow making class for an Enrichment craft group (I was feeling bad that our Ward wasn't doing any crafts so I volunteered).




I agreed to make a wedding cake for a friend's brother. Plus, I'm in the middle of removing wallpaper to redecorate DD's bedroom. I'm the secretary for our Ward Book Group. I have three half-sewn dresses waiting to be finished. Besides the fact that I haven't even begun making my cards for this month's card group exchange in two days.




I always think things sound so fun and challenging. I love to be creative and teach other people. I just tend to get overextended and with the kids home for spring break last week, I didn't accomplish as much as I'd hoped. Oh well. I'll get it done and have fun in the process, but like I said, sometimes I should have myself committed for volunteering!

I had to figure out about volunteering for things the hard way. It was when I realized that I was neglecting my kids, because I was doing so much for my kids, that I finally made some changes. Now instead of offering to be incharge I am just the pleasant surprise who shows up when I can. Kinda pathetic now that I think about it. But certainly a lot less stressful Ü

Thanks for your comment! It is always fun to open my mail and see a comment from someone new.

Did you make that cake? It is gorgeous! And I wish you lived closer I would convince you to make me a stock of hairbows. Yours look great! Mine always look too dinky...
