What was I thinking!

I don't know if I'm the only one out there that does this. I have a tendency of overdoing things. Then it takes me forever to organize my life. I have now joined about a dozen KAL's and or Swaps. I have no idea how I'm going to keep up with all of this. I'm new to the blog world so I got a little excited when I saw how many crazy knitters there are out there. No one in my world understands my knitting needs. Everyone in blogland does! Then I learned about Ravelry. OH BOY. Now I can't keep off of it. There's millions of us! So on Ravelry comes the swaps and KAL's. I can't say no. Now I'm up to my neck in knitting and I'm so happy. But nothing else is getting done around my house. Today's project is clearing out all the magazines I collected over the holidays. YIKES. It's like I think I'm somehow going to magically find the time to read all this stuff and then I'll make everything. Now look at one months worth of magazines.Can you believe I thought I could handle all this and the stress of the holiday? Oh, and here's just one magazine. Notice all the sticky notes. I thought I could just whip up all these recipes in my spare time. HA. And this is just one. Well, needless to say I failed. I did make a few and found some good recipes. Now I have to decide if I need to throw this away or keep. Geez. Being an adult is hard work! I should listen to my husband when he says "Simplify". But now I'm off to check Ravelry and see if there's any new patterns I must do.

I can lose hours on Ravelry too, and can't imagine ever having the time to do everything I want to do. Aren't you just shocked and amazed (and maybe a bit disgusted) when someone says that they are bored?

I love Paula Deen's recipes, but so many of them start with a stick of butter! I'd be stickying that many of them too!

Keep the Paula Dean.
Keep the knitting magazines.
Throw out all the cataloges.
