    Mikey, Ellen is so right on when it comes to making time for yourself. I, too, can never say NO to anyone. I have a consign business and I work with a business owner, when she says she needs product, I step up and work many, many late nights to get her my crafts. But that also means my crafts for my shows slow down, so I have to work late nights and weekends to get enough product made.

    I like her ideas you posted. I actually copied them, printed them larger and have them posted in my workspace at home.

    One thing I do at home when working on crafts, I have a 2 hour timer. I set it, and when it goes off, I stop what I am making. I get up, get something to eat or drink, call a friend to chat and relax for 30 minutes. Then go back to my crafts. When my hubby gets home from work, my work stops until he goes to sleep, then I set that timer again for one last time and go to sleep by midnight each and every night. That way when I wake up in the morning, I am relaxed, I refresh and start the day again.

    All your friends have been telling you this. Hope you do start taking some time outs and hope that your vaca was super wonderful.
