Overwhelmed



I had some body/mind issues last weekend and spent a couple of days in bed
trying to escape the world, but now reality is back to bite me in the ass.

This July is super busy for me, with 2 trade fairs in two different countries,
mine and Cinnamon man's anniversary, and hosting his 40th birthday party.
This weekend we are also digging the green house to finally get our pumpkins
in the ground, Monday I am having my wisdom teeth pulled and Wednesday
we are embarking on a major repainting adventure on the house. Two gables,
4 doors and several windows are getting a long overdue overhaul.

You might think these are vacation projects but alas, there's no rest for
self employed retail workers. Needless to say, I am feeling slightly overwhelmed
and the rest of my creative projects have therefore been put on hold
for the time being. The only thing I can say for sure that I'm sticking with
is the Mad Tea Party - because we all know that's going to be a blast!

  1. Just remember -- how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time, my girl, one bite at a time. You'll get it done!

    1. Your comment reminds me of the 2 min video of a tiny Tennessee woman eating 2 kg's of steak in one go... :)

  2. Oooh, I hope your wisdom teeth pulling goes alright, they had to gouge mine out and break them because they were so high in the gum. I ended up with dry socket on three of the four. I'd say it's a good thing they only come once, but I've heard of people who have two sets of wisdom teeth. 0.0

    1. Two sets of wisdom teeth? I wonder if the first set is actually the back teeth in an otherwise small mouth? Sounds horrible either way!

  3. Hooray for busy summers...! ^^ Of course you're overwhelmed by all this, but I'm sure you'll manage, just don't overdo it; take one bit at a time and try to find the fun side of things and remember, that things won't run away while you rest a little...;)

    1. It's not so much the running away as the piling up that I'm worried about... :)

  5. Wow! Busy summer. Best luck with the teeth extraction. What color will you be painting with, when that project is up?

    1. All the wood is a classic Swedish dark red, and I have never liked it. I am going for a blue, with a hint of either purple or gray. I have two samples I am trying out this afternoon.

  11. One step at a time. Best wishes for a smooth recovery from your wisdom teeth. I don't expect you to have problems, but major painting on Wednesday may be a bit ambitious.Don't plan on bending over much for a few days.
    Keeping you in my best thoughts.

  14. Yep that's enough to make me want to crawl into bed and hide for a bit. You will make it through and then there will be moments of peace! Hate looking ahead at the week and feeling overwhelmed! I can relate to that feeling so well.

    1. I know, that feeling sucks. Hiding in bed is one of my favorite pass-times.

  15. Be careful not to overwork yourself right after having your wisdom teeth pulled. Be kind to your healing gums!
