Assessing April Goals, Setting May Goals

I have been having all sorts of issues these past five or six weeks.

The office workload has nearly tripled as we come to the sacrament "season", prep for registration for 2015-16, prepare budgets, take inventory and do all the things that make April and May so very crazy.

Added to that, I have had all sorts of issues with my eyes.  Starting tomorrow, I embark on a series of laser surgeries to repair blood vessels and remove cataracts.  None of this is life threatening or even life altering [except in a good way] but it has diverted my focus from stitching and stitching related activities.  I am way behind on giveaways, blogging and actual stitching.

In fact, all I managed to complete recently are

* Workbasket's Quaker Bat
* The Town Square series' Sandie's Sweet  Shop

I started Prairie Schooler's Year Round for April but still have a few hours worth of stitching to do before completing it.

I don't anticipate getting back into my routines fully much before June.  I expect May will be as hectic as April has been, if not more so.

So, my goal for May is to take things as they come, seeking to carve out a little time for stitching here and there.  My usual elaborate plans and rotations just won't be workable this coming month.  However, I do expect that once all my eye surgeries are done, I'll enjoy such an improvement that I'll be back to my old speed.  At present, I am a s...l...o...w stitcher, running at tortoise like speed.

Good luck!

What poor timing for you to have eye issues. I know how busy you are at the end of the school year. You're right, though, about how much more you'll enjoy your return to stitching; you'll be amazed at how beautiful colors become! I actually sat and moved a hand back and forth to cover one eye and then the other after the first cataract surgery, just to keep comparing the difference, :o)

Prayers that your eye surgeries go smoothly!

Gosh, your life is certainly full! I hope the eye surgery goes well. Our eyesight is so precious.

My cataract surgeries were quick and easy, and instant results! Hoping yours go the same...
