the train of thoughts have left the station

I have to constantly remind myself to slow down. 
I know it's not the first time I've blogged about this 
and I am sure it won't be the last.

When I am excited about something my brain goes into hyper speed.
It's hard for David to follow my train of thoughts sometimes.
HA! it's even hard for me to follow sometimes!
He says it's like I'll jump on the Express train while he's 
still standing on the train station checking the time table...

I  get frustrated. Putting unrealistic expectations on myself. 
There is so much I want to do. 
So many things I would like to try. To play with. 
So much!
I am only 32 but I am terrified I am running out of time. 
Crazy I know. But that's me. A little nuts at times :o)

So you're probably wondering what brought on this 
crazy hyper speed train of thoughts today..
Not sure actually. Can't remember where it started! ha ha

Somewhere between planning my new studio space,
deciding that I am going to do craft shows next year, 
realizing I need a booth set up, 
wondering if I should apply for that square thing that lets you
take credit card, 
needing a new iphone to be able to use the square, 
 thinking about Davids truck that died yesterday 
(poor thing.... the truck that is, I think Davis is exciting about a new truck), 
super excited to move into a new place, 
I really need to sort through my wardrobe, 
hmmm wonder if I'll be able to set up a 
proper space for my enameling stuff?

Phew I am exhausting myself today.
I think it's time for another cup of coffee... or a nap maybe?


puss & kram!


  1. Ha I think the last thing you need is another cup of coffee! I totally know this feeling well, we have talked about it. I get the feeling of time running out, I get the 10,000 ideas running through your head ( I used to have sleepless nights over ideas, but now it has all caught up with me and I am so damn tired by the time this weary body gets into bed I am asleep before my head hits the pillow) I know what it is like to have the list get longer and the plans pile up....phew I am exhausted now too!
    I say you take a night (soon) where you do nothing. Just watch tv, or read a book. Nothing that involves work, business, moving, etc. Just a "Tess night"
    Let some of those thoughts filter themselves so they don't feel all jumbled on top of each other.

  2. I hate it when my mind is going faster than my hands which is most of the time. I seem to always have several things going on be in jewelry I am working on or books I am reading.

    You are in a very exciting place right now - slow down and enjoy it!

  3. Haha! Like I was reading about myself! :D know exactly the feeling.
    BTW - love your creations and wait for some new pieces. :)
    Regards from your new follower from Poland. :)

  4. Oh boy..I couldnt have put it better..It was like I was writing this post...


I treasure your words and the fact that you are
taking the time to share them with me.
Please forgive me if I don't respond personally to you.
I always try but sometimes time just flies away!
