creative energy

So I went and started a new job last week.  Now mind you I do not need nor do I have time for another job.  Being a full-time mom, plus bookkeeper/keep-it-together-person of the 2 family businesses and then starting the Stitch Lounge this past fall...yes, you get the idea.  Actually the real reason is I need to replace my 13 year old car and having been without any payments for many years and knowing exactly the car I want which of course is allowing for the expanded family now and whatever else...well, I'm working for my new (used) car.  And for fabric.

But with the addition of this new responsiblity I'm finding it odd that I'm sewing and cleaning more than ever!  I couldn't find the time to get everything done before, how the heck am I doing it now?!  I even got the quilting bug back which I haven't done in literally 2 years!!  I just can't stop myself from creating new things.  Everyone else seems to be happy in the family too.  Is it really true the saying...If Momma ain't happy...ain't no one happy?  Hmmmm....just maybe in our case. 

I'm wondering if I've hit that sweet spot, the one where I've got just enough going on that I don't have time to be lazy or dilly-dally around.  I have to get it done now or it's not gonna get done or it's gonna drag me down and get in my way!  And I don't feel like I'm stressed or over worked... yet.  Or maybe I'm headed for a major breakdown... Guess we'll just have to wait and see but until then I'm taking this new creative energy and running with it.
