It’s been a busy month. For some CRAZY reason, I thought the past few weeks would be a little more relaxed. That is most definitely NOT the case. I still haven’t had much extra time to sit and write. In fact, I’m supposed to be grading some papers now, but I’ve decided to let you know- I’m still here! Just a little exhausted, but still kicking!
The past few weeks have been really focused on getting the new puppy potty trained, finishing Christmas related activities, and wrapping up homeschool for the holidays. We’ve put a floor down on our newly enclosed patio, and I actually moved the homeschool room again. (my poor husband)
Our “big” room used to be an entertainment/guest room. But I since moved the bed downstairs where it would be easier for our guests to stay. I was using the space that opened up as a place to sew with the kids. However, after spending some time sewing with the kids, I realized that I really miss my sewing/craft room. And then I realized that the new open space without the bed would fit the homeschool desks!… (It also seemed fitting because my kids like to sit on the couch on rainy/cold days to read their books or study.) SOOO, I figured- why not just make our “big” room the homeschool room.
Trying to make this long story short- we moved the school room yet again. I really liked it where it was, but I also really missed having a room where I can escape too and the kids got me into crafting and sewing again. So much so, that my husband bought me a new sewing machine for my birthday! And I’ve been busy making a few things.
With the kids learning to sew, I’ve started learning to quilt. It’s been fun. And my husband always tells me that I seem a little happier when I’ve had time to be creative. As much as he didn’t want to move the homeschool room again, he was happy to give me my art room back again.
Now that the holidays are right around the corner and family is coming in, I will be spending some time cleaning and baking- and I’m hoping to throw in a smidge of resting. I’ve been sick a few times recently (currently I’ve been sick since Friday night), and I’m thinking it’s been from some stress the past few weeks. And Momma is Tired. So, If I don’t get to it before the holidays I pray you all have a wonderful Christmas!
I’m hoping to be back here again soon. I’ve been taking some of this time to consider what to do with my blog for the upcoming year. I’ve been testing the waters this first year and I want to start narrowing down a few goals with it. So as I prayerfully consider that, I hope to be back by New Years time with some fresh goals. If you have any suggestions for me, please feel free to comment. (Comments are also open on my blog).
