Wow, so adjusting to DH being with us full time has thrown off my normal schedule more than it ever did when he would come home on visits! Y’all, I don’t think I’ve crossed a single x since my last post. And that was only boring yellow border on BoInk. I don’t think I realized how much I used stitching to keep my mind off of him being gone. I mean, intellectually, I knew that’s what I was doing, but I didn’t realize how much I relied on it. There were days when I would stitch about 6 hours. Plus housework and kid-stuff and church stuff…
So now that he’s home, and I’m settling into a new routine, and trying to remember to take my anti-depressant, and trying to figure out what to do with 2 kids at home all day, and thinking about looking for part-time work…I’m exhausted just thinking about it! I’ve been reading a lot, and doing a little bit of crochet. But none of my WIPs have made their way into my fingers.
I did accomplish something pretty amazing this last week – I turned this:
Yay me! I can finally see all my fabric for sewing clothing and for finishing. I can see how much yarn I
need have. I can get to my wrapping papers without digging through coats! The ironing board needs to find a new home, and I still have a bunch of “organizing clutter” on my finishing table. But I think I’ll be able to get back to sewing things during the days on Monday. And that makes me very happy. Because my children need summer clothes, and I have piles of fabric and patterns to accomplish that feat.
