This has been me the past couple of weeks, juggling too many plates – coordinating a community event for over 300 people, writing a research unit, redesigning a publication, programming three mini children’s events, attending more meetings than I can count, and teaching. Needless to say, that unlike the picture, I have had to drop a few plates, blogging being among them. In fact, the busyness of the past month has made it difficult to achieve the vast majority of the monthly goals I established for my over-aspirational self last year, but I’m okay with that because I’m still achieving, and that’s what keeps me moving.
That said, I knew I needed to take some time for myself this weekend or I’d be the next cracking plate. As much as I wanted to write and work on Project Life, these tasks seemed too daunting for the energy level I had, and so I did like a kid and took to coloring, adding one completed page and one background to my art journal.
