overy my head in projects

  seriously!  do you ever say "if I wouldn't of committed to this"  or "if I wouldn't of wasted my time" (on Pinterest and words with friends hee!)  so on and so on... that you would have half those projects done? especially when you really want to make time for Randi's May sew along (which I LOVE each month) and now possibly this small projects sew along and have totally slacked on better my home challenge, which would have really helped me tons if I would have kept up!

I have attended a good friends adoption ceremony, which was beautiful, I have done some training with the horses but not ridden enough,  gone to A LOT of track meets and I stopped being a recluse and finally made time for a couple of dates with a few different friends AND have had to do too many college forms and scholarship applications with Zach, can you believe he graduates high school this month?!! a lot mixed feelings about that.

Basically, I want to sew, and I mean sew a lot this month, I also have a few home projects I want to accomplish and I am using the date of May  24-26 as an inspiration deadline since we are having Zachs graduation party!!!

have you checked out Randi's sew along this month? a super cute lap sized quilt!  can't decide if I am using white background with possibly oranges, blues and greens? if you know me, I will probably change my mind :)

also, when I became addicted to Pinterest, I told some friends if I want to spend (waste) time on pinning, I need to actually do a 3-5 projects a month that I pin. I have made 2 meals from recipes I found and then I did this the other night, I love how it turned it, I may need to go find more rocks that we have brought home from various camping/hunting/picnic trips and stamp words on them now!

All of it sounds fun except the application forms. Keeping busy is probably going to help you through this "traumatic" event (graduation). I had to laugh when I saw your list of little things, that should keep you busy for the rest of the year.
