Organization is Key

So, I have 3 projects on the go: The Patchwork Throw, that involves medium-sized hexagons, the Door Catch-all, which is a fairly large rectangle, with pockets that will be added at the very end, and the Lover's Knot afghan , which is a huge project that was ordered by a friend of mine.  This afghan was made even MORE huge, due to the fact that her bed is queen size, and the original pattern is for single beds, or for cuddling on a chair, reading.  So I added 4 panels, and made my needles larger.  I started yesterday, and I have 4 rows done, so I'm quite happy with my speed.   However, if I want to make a go of this business, and still maintain a liveable area, I need to prioritize, and organize.  So, I have squeezed those projects into my everyday schedule.  So, my plan is, everyday, I will finish one hexagon, work 5 rows of my Catch-all, and 1 hour of the Lover's Knot. Sounds pretty awesome, eh?

Right now, I'm excited to get to all my projects, but I'm also feeling a little overwhelmed by all the stuff I need to do.  I started working out again 2 days ago, and I have to remember to keep the house tidy, the kids fed, bathed and entertained, do some studying on one course that DH is teaching and I promised I would keep up with, catalogue his poli sci books for insurance purposes, help my mum-in-law with her house at least once a week... What else??? Oh yeah, keep up to date with this blog, write in my 2 magazines (which includes interviewing a variety of people).. And I'm pretty sure I'm missing about 5 things, but you all get the jist of it, right?   Busy, busy girl.
