My 3 Monsters: Uggghhh!

Recent Posts



We have a little saying in our house -- "Everything seems like a good idea when it's three weeks away".  We get all excited things, but as the time actually approaches we realize that we don't actually want to do it at all.  Or that we have over-committed ourselves or whatever.  Going into this 31 Days challenge I knew that the last week of this month was going to be crazy.  I have Halloween costumes to figure out, Trunk-or-Treat at church to plan, Youth Conference to plan next weekend, birthday parties, pumpkin walk, and Halloween parties to help with. I knew ALL of that.  And yet three weeks ago I thought, "No problem!  I gots this.  {I talk all slangy like that in my head.}  I can do all of that AND a craft project everyday, all month long.  No bigs."  Here I sit tonight with today's project only half finished on the coffee table, tomorrow's project not yet begun, no Halloween costumes and no food in the refrigerator.  I'M NOT SUPERWOMAN!!  I'm sure that doesn't surprise any of you.  And as long as I'm confessing, I went to a movie with my husband tonight instead of doing anything about any of those things.  I'm not throwing in the towel, I'm just letting y'all know that I'm going to be a few days behind . . . and that my kids' costumes may end up being a couple of my remaining projects.  Thanks for all the support and kind comments you've left here this month.  I really do appreciate it!

Be back tomorrow {I hope} with the scrappy Christmas garland I had planned for today and a t-shirt makeover.  Maybe.


  1. Honestly, I don't understand how you made it this far! I can't even take a photo each week for a Project 52 or get more than 3 craft projects done in a month! We are all super impressed with you and after your confession that you're not superwoman, we love you more because you're real and honest. :-) Good luck with the last few projects and the Halloween costumes!

  2. I love that saying--it is SO TRUE. Was it a good movie?

  3. I have been reading your blog for the last hour and a half. Can I just tell you that I absolutely LOVE YOU!!! You are so honest and refreshing.

    Thank you for such a great blog!!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I try to respond to every one, even if it takes me a little while!
