as we speak......

well.............................i am feeling a little overwhelmed..........trying to get things finished up for the openhouse...........never enough time it seems..................never get things all done that i want.............never get to the great ideas in my head that just don't get there........................so as we speak, emotions are running high................................i am feeling a little blue, and would rather go to bed and pull the covers over my head...................................but instead, i will head back to the shop to clean and rearrange.........................even as we speak.........................i know.............. ............................................... i am blessed

How difficult, to match creativity with energy, it seems there's always a bit of unbalance to the two. A bit much of one, not enough of the other. But you can do it, press on. So many would love to attempt but never try what you are doing. You are very gifted, press on!

I think all of us go to that place you are at now Denise sometime or another, and each in our own way - for me, it's pulling off Christmas for our family - entertaining our extended family on Christmas eve and getting everything ready for our immediate family for Christmas Day. Certainly not as big a production as an open house - but the same tension of ideas and wanna-do's vs. what can actually and practically get done....The days leading up to it and the questions of "why am I doing this to myself?" that march through my head; the pure emotional and physical exhaustion; and then the sigh of satisfaction when it unfolds...just as it should...and those little things that we didn't get done, safely guarded secrets for only us to know. Hang in there - you know why; and you know you wouldn't have it any other way - and you know it will all be so worth it....Wishing you stamina in this last "lap...." Hugs & Blessings ~ Robin
