Walking into Madness

Otherwise known as "Overcommited, part III".

Because I didn't have enough to do in the next month, I foolishly signed up for a Screenwriting Basics course through the Writer's University.  I was planning on waiting until the summer.  What was I thinking?  Clearly I wasn't.

So let's break this down in what I have commited to over the next month:
  • The Victoria Fibre Fest, in form of teaching a dye class, sponsoring the fashion show, needing to have two knitted tops (one cardigan, one t-shirt) completed for the June 18th-20th weekend, and participating in the Market day at Saxe Point on the 20th.
  • Dyeing and swatching before the end of May for the Harry Potter House Cup "Ancient Runes" class (may not happen in time).
  • Needing to wind and dye as much yarn and spinning fibre as I can from now until the 18th of June.
  • Somehow doing some reading/learning for this Screenwriting class.
And yes, doing my usual daytime job of being a full-time mom.

Yeah, I know.  Madness.

But as I was winding yarn (yet again) tonight, I decided I'm not going to let this drive me batty.  I'm not going to create more pressure and expectations for myself over this next month.  I'm going to do what I can with the time and energy I have and not drive myself into the ground.  The exhaustion and emotional stress just isn't worth it.  If I don't have mounds of yarn and fibre dyed and ready for the Market Day, so be it.  There is only so much time in the day.

I'm going to attempt to be Zen about this.  It's late spring, after all, and I love this time of year.  I'm going to do my best to enjoy it!
