Things That Inspire Me

I just recently read this article from an eletter of Threads magazine. This textile art is a stitched autobiography of Sally Mavor from Cape Cod. Click on the link and read the information about this artists inspiration and techniques she used. I would like to get her book - I am up for creating some "wee" folks.

I have had the whole day to do homework. And what was finished? Only one 2 page paper that was due 10 days ago. However, I did talk to 3 of my children - that was good. And I made breakfast, lunch and dinner for my husband - and some cookies - which by the way were somewhat fluffy and good.

I keep thinking the following week of school will be less demanding, but it hasn't happened yet. And then not taking care of school work today does not help - and only will add to the stress next week.

I reapplied to the PR program. I have done all that was asked, and now await to hear from the Communications department as to whether or not I got accepted. If I don't get in, I will need to change jobs.

I really enjoy my job, but working with the students that I do, and have class with them - it is a conflict of interest. Two issues happened this past week that caused way too much angst in my heart. I don't need this. Maybe that is why I didn't accomplish anything useful.

Can I say, I am just tired today and still be good?
