Sorry I've been AWOL.

I haven't be around.
I haven't been sewing.
I had a bit of a meltdown yesterday.
I'm overtired...dealing with stressed, overtired, overexcited kiddos all day.
We're nearing the home stretch of the school year end.
I'm trying to finish grades, grading short stories, end of the year stuff...graduation parties, good byes to families moving, learning 2 dance choreographies (truth be told, learning one...I haven't done anything with the solo).
I've not been doing well trying to hold it all together.  Not enough sleep.  Not enough time for me.  Not enough everything.
So, I haven't been around.  I haven't been sewing.  I haven't been smooshing the dog enough or The Pirate.
Heck, I haven't cleaned the house in far far too long.
Ugh.  Gotta do that this weekend, too.
I missed the SMS giveaway I meant to post.  
I'm behind on some UFOs.
I may be sending a bee block out late.  (I hate being late.   Those of you in my hives know I try to get it all done early.)
I need to learn to manage stress better.  Take better care of myself.  Sleep.
Sleep is good.

Been there, experienced most of that. Take a deep breath, do what you can do, and take care of yourself.

Don't stress about the blog. You are more important. The end is near and think of all that lovely sewing time that you will have when the kids are on holidays!

I feel your pain! I feel the same way. I'm so late on my bee's and a charity quilt that hold be posted. Take a rest and you'll feel better.

Ahh, I am there with you. Time to choose to do what is most important to you. For me it is to have the best possible end of the year with my students. My May bees will be a tad late. They will be better when they do arrive, usually not inconveniencing my bee mates too much. I don't get a do over for ending the school year, so I want to be sure to get that right. My dust bunnies will still be there when school is out. Make them happy, let them live a little longer!

Oh dear that doesn't sound good at all. Sometimes it's better to let off stress by writing.
Hopefully you feel better soon when all the stress and rushing about dies down =D

I'm hosting a new swap over at my blog if anyone is interested please pop over for a look =D
