Too busy to crochet is just too busy…

My yarn calls to me. I’m behind in the challenge I’m doing. In the evenings, my hands are too tired and my mind too preoccupied to crochet. During the day, chores, laundry, and cooking call to me and I feel too guilty to do anything to relax.

too busy

That needs to change.

When I’m too busy for the little things, I’m too busy.

The moment I stopped having time to crochet, I also stopped having time to read and pray.

Funny how things like that go hand in hand.

If you ask my family…

I’ve probably also been a bit grouchier.

(so don’t ask them, ‘k? Thanks!)

My goals for tomorrow –

slow down

pray

read

crochet

enjoy the little things.

Of course, that’s after homeschooling, cleaning, blogging, and cooking. (except the read and pray part. That needs to be first. Ok. That needs to be ALL day.)

What do you do to relax?

  1. I started a granny square blanket a few years ago then I started blogging and I stopped entirely. Seems like a lost cause now but I still would like to finish it. The things I really would like to get to everyday are reading and walking and I haven’t been. Sometimes I say just a 5 minute walk or read just a few pages and I know that strategy works for me. Must be a lot harder with homeschooling though!

    • I’m determined to keep up crocheting. My favorite activity in homeschooling (even though we haven’t done it this year) is do a family read a loud and crochet while my kids pass the book and read. I keep saying we’re going to start back! It’s hard with teens!!!
