Life happens.....

My life seems to be filled to the brim and speeding by faster than a freight train.  Each day is full of work, kids, activities, household projects, and on very rare occasions, crafting. 

It seems that the more I do, the more I have to do.  I've spent the past 8 months working my guts out trying to pick up the slack at work for vacant positions.  I thought I was doing a good job.  I was TOLD that I was doing a good job by my boss.  But yesterday, he blew up that one thing is not moving fast enough for him.  Suddenly, all I've done is not enough.  As much as I try to remain professional, that hurt.  A lot.  Maybe I'm wrong, but when you give it your all (and then some) and am told that that is not enough, it stings.  I'm really not sure where this will end up.  I've put up with this kind of thing for 3 years now and I'm tired of it.  I love what I do, but maybe it's time for a different path for me.  We shall see. 

But enough doom and gloom.  I thought this card was very appropriate.  Life is more than just that moment yesterday.  I'm trying very hard to remember that today.  This card uses SU's new color Cherry Pie with another new color Blushing Bride.  I honestly can't remember the name of the stamp set, but it's by SU too and in the Summer Mini catalogue.  It's super simple, but that's about all I have time and energy for these days, LOL~ 

Thanks for looking (and listening to me vent).  Have a great day!


  1. Beautiful card! Love the color combo.

    How frustrating about your job. Hope things work out for you soon.

  2. I'm so sorry about your boss--hopefully he'll come to his senses and apologize soon!

    Your card is so lovely, such a beautiful image!

  3. Sorry to hear about your job troubles. I've spent the last six months trying to do the job of three people, and I don't think I've done any of them well. I've called this the Summer of Suck. Things are looking up now, so here's wishing it improves for you, too.
