Keeping Calm

Can someone explain something to me? What's with all the "Keep Calm" signs? Keep Calm and Carry On. Keep Calm and Write On. Keep Calm and blah blah blah.

I don't get it.

I don't want to keep calm! You can't make me!

I have a son starting second grade tomorrow who is having a tantrum because I haven't taken him to the water park yet this summer.

I have a son that has a dentist appointment today, a TB test tomorrow, and a thousand odd jobs to cross off his list before he begins college next week.

I have another son who is packing for his move to college this Saturday. And did I mention that his method of packing is to leave piles and boxes all over the house?

Calm? Far from it!

But I can craft. And for a few moments, it brings me to my happy place. And if you saw my craft studio right now, you'd say that it's a lot more frenetic than calm at the moment. But that's okay.

Calm is highly overrated.

Hope your day is frenetically fun, too!


  1. I'm with you, why keep calm.

    New job on monday next week, school gear to get, car to m.o.t. & tax......

    Be a swan, graceful on the top, paddling like crazy underneath....

  2. I love the "keep calm" stuff! I first saw it in Seattle last summer at a stamp shop! A cute little button/pin and I bought it! I think it's the best advise to all life's problems. You may know the history of this.....but if not it was used as a poster slogan during WWII in England. Now that would be quite a job for such a little quote!

  3. Funny! Good for you for taking time out for yourself no matter what is going on. ;) LorieR
