what a difference a day makes

yesterday i was in such a glorious mood…but today that all changed when i worked with my school clients…sometimes i really regret ever agreeing to taking that school contract…

i don’t typically compose poems, but this is what came to me after a tiresome day at school (my creative effort for AEM)…thread.jpg

hanging by a thread

there are days when

i am overwhelmed.

stuffed to the point

i start bursting at the seams.

sometimes it is joyful.

other times, it’s not.

i just wish there was some way

to pull a few strings

to let out the seams…

so that i wouldn’t have to be continually

hanging by a thread.


i don’t know if that all exactly makes sense…but the feeling of  i’m hanging by a thread, i assure you, is very real.    so many {what i feel are} unreasonable demands are being imposed on me &  my limited time at one of my schools…i swore that i wasn’t going to dwell & i won’t…this urge to post this “poem” was tugging at me.  thank goodness there is no school next week on account of good ol’ thanksgiving!  ooooh, i can’t wait…it will be such a welcome break! 

also, i think i have project runway on the brain, lol…as the new season premieres in less than 2 hours, cst.  woo-hoo!  this will be a nice way to get my mind off things…

plus, i have got to get crack-a-lacking on this swap wip.  it’ due next tuesday, yikers!!!  scwip.jpg i’ve been procrastinating on turning these li’l matchboxes into something fabulous & shabby chic…i just got a reminder email today from my blog pal, danielle to get my matchbox christmas ornaments to her ASAP.  welp, looks like i’ve got to at least start covering these matchboxes while i await my show.  maybe i will have something to share by tomorrow night? 

anyway, thanks for bearing with me in my attempt at poetry…& to borrow a phrase, i will, for sure, carry on. 🙂

  1. I am sorry that today wiped you out so much…..maybe creating your ornaments will take your mind off of things…and take some stress away!
    I do like your poem….it does not have to mean anything to anyone…if it came from your heart and mind…that is all that matters.
    I hope tomorrow is a glorious day for you!!!

  2. I feel for you Mary Ann. You do such good and important work. Sending you love and energy!

  3. Hello my precious Karma Queen! 😀 Mar, you are so not alone in how you’re feeling, believe me…
