Always too busy to be bothered with this blog! Got other things I want to be doing. Actually I've been pretty obsessed with ravelry and swaps and gotten over my head in it and all so I haven't had the time to do my other activities. Which is really stupid - it's brought me down a lot. I was doing a lot of praying and devotion, a lot of yoga, and some knitting and crocheting (but in moderation) and I had given up sweets and spending for lent. I was feeling really good about myself! I mean really good. And feeling true peace and joy. And I've gotten of kilter out of whack and all with my priorities. Now I feel stressed about these swap deadlines, stressed that my presents won't be good enough, stressed I won't finish all I want to finish, stressed I won't have enough money for our plane tickets because I spend so much on yarn and swaps, upset that I broke my lenten promise in a big way and haven't managed to recommit, and upsetthat I have to break open my meager savings in order to buy our plane tickets... Why do we do this to ourselves?
I'm sorry to carry on. I think I needed to see alll this in writing to do something about it. I'll keep you up to date on my efforts to turn things around. It's a momentum thing - takes so much more energy to brake and turn around than once you're already sailing smoothly. All prayers would be greatly appreciated!
