Do you ever get that feeling that you are drowning in work and responsibilities?
Like you are always on the edge of some great abyss,
trying to catch your breath,
searching a moment of calm and contentment?

Welcome to my world.
I try to keep my blog postings
brief, pretty, and positive
(Pretty we have today with pics of a new ring I just finished).
But, this week has brought a crushing workload
and financial burdens to boot.

So, I need to vent today.

I'm not going to talk about what my specific burden may be at the moment.
Simply, I'm overwhelmed, anxious, and irritated
and that I crave a week alone with no phone, no computer, far away
on a beach with a frosty beverage at hand.

Thank you for listening.
Next posting will be in better spirits.
Pinky promise.


  1. You have my empathy, that's for sure.. Organization always helps me to get things done when I'm floundering (which is always :S). I make myself do so many certain things done in a certain amount of time and before I know it the crisis is over.

    I hope everything is fine soon and the weather is warmer and the frothy drink is colder :)

    Beautiful ring, by the way... I'm just amazed at your work.

  2. Thanks, Jude! Today is better and the warmer weather has perked me up a bit.

  3. Well, I'm a little late, but I do hope you are feeling better about things today! It's difficult to say no, and even more difficult to keep your head above water when there are so many things that must be done. I'm still trying to figure out how to get it all done.

    Beautiful ring!
