thursdays confessions

I am addicted to Pinterest
I have to admit, at first I was skeptical.  
But now I am addicted. It is simple and amazing and of course absolutely inspiring.
I found this picture there. Oh my golly goshes, how I love this room.

One of my failures as a working mother is that I am worn down too easily at the end of the day.
I work at a K-8 school, and all day hundreds of kids (and I am not kidding) try to get things from me, try to get away with things, need me to fix it, solve it, do it for them.
By the end of the day I have a hard time being the bad guy anymore. I also have a hard time being helpful.
This is not good for my kids or our family.
I am working on it but I am not beating myself up, but I am not letting myself off the hook either.

I am writing a book. A real book that has a real publisher.
The book is non-fiction and will be about things crafty and faith related.
That is all I am going to say because I am still wrapping my head around it all and I don't want to say too much for fear that everything I have to go in the book will spill out and run downhill never to be recovered.
The next 6 months are going to be intense. A lot of things in my life are going to have to be put on hold.
I am going to have to say "no" to a lot of great things, which is going to be VERY hard for me. Sweet Man is going to have to be my guard dog, helping me stay focused and out of trouble.

This also means that I will probably blog less (or not at all) from time to time, but I do hope that when I come around you will still be here.
Am I excited? Yes! Am I overwhelmed? Yes! Is that normal? I think so...

So there you have it. Thursday's confessions. Oh, and if you come to visit this week please excuse the pile of dirty clothes in the bathroom and the sticky stuff on the kitchen floor. It is what it is.
