sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things


I crave sleep. Really, I do. Failing that, I guess I’ll just drink more coffee.


I used to be fairly organized. I need to get that way again. It’s going to take a tight schedule to get everything done. I know I said that a couple days ago, but now I really mean it. In addition to the feeding and pumping and schooling, we have 3 dates with the nebulizer each day, plus morning and evening meds.


My house is a wreck. No, I mean really. Like, there is a cobweb behind my bathroom door that has been there for at least 2 weeks. I see it everytime I leave the bathroom. But since I am always flying out of there to go do “the next thing”, it’s still there. And then there is the laundry. And the meals. And the people. They need cleaning too, you know.

Mental weight

Did I mention that Grandmother suddenly can’t walk? And that I was supposed to get over there and see her yesterday, but never found time to get there?

That dh still doesn’t have a full call load? That’s been great this week that I have spent in the ER or at the doc’s office, but I worry about finances a couple of weeks from now.

That I need to work with DD#5 to get her on the breast again, but can’t seem to find time to do it? We’re only nursing at night now.


I’ve been trying to make a pair socks since the baby came. She’ll be 4 weeks Monday, and I am on the heel flap if the first sock. Yeah, sounds trivial, but it’s important to me. It’s my one outlet.

What I need

  • more time or
  • more hands or
  • a mother’s helper or
  • a vacation

I guess I am just overwhelmed. My mind is rebelling against all there is to do, but I know there is a way to get it done. I hold to the promise of the Savior. He said that there would not be more put on us than we could bear.

So now, on to the next thing. That’s a bath for me and the baby, clearing off the freezer that’s been a catch-all for 4 weeks now, and more laundry.
