I am finding there are not enough hours in the day. I guess I have taken on too much to do and am now looking for a way to fit it all in. I know something will have to suffer and I am trying to make sure it is not me.
So Christmas is creeping up on us and I have nothing ready for it yet. I cannot get myself in the mood to shop and finding time to do so has proven to be a challenge. Work is extremely busy and they are pushing me to get more done which will mean taking work home (something I am not willing to do at this time). Myself and some friends have committed to making quilts for the Hurricane Sandy victims and this has become my number 1 priority for my off time. We are trying to get them completed before Christmas so we can get them sent to those who need them most. This means I need to put something else on hold.
My family understands this commitment and are willing to help so my daughter will be putting up our Christmas decorations this weekend and helping with whatever she can. My husband helps where he can with the housework and cleaning up from meals but he does not cook, so I still have to do that. Workouts are being fit into small pockets wherever I can find 10 minutes or so and I have set up my quilting area so I have to walk further between steps to ensure I keep moving. We still take the dogs for a 5K walk every day so that helps.
I guess my biggest choice right now is to maintain until I get the quilts done and Christmas over with. Then I will have to ramp up again. I just cannot make anymore changes at this time. So far I am holding my own but I really want to be moving forward.
