Coming Together

I have been at home and not at work for just over 2 weeks now.  It has been a little bit of an adjustment for everyone.  There have been good days and there have been bad days and there have been days where I have been called "the worst mother in the world" (thanks, S).  

Last week, my parents took the children on a trip to B.C.  I had a whole week to get it together - to figure out work, get things done around the house, etc. etc.  etc.  (I am fully aware that I have the most awesome parents on the planet).

The week started with me crying all the way home after dropping off the boys off with my parents.  All 15 minutes were spent in a total sob fest.  The worst mom in the world thing kinda got to me.  And having them leave ... Broke my heart, I tell you.  


Work got done.  11 loads of laundry got done.  Sewing did not get done.

Then D and I went to B.C. for the weekend to be with the boys and my parents.

And somehow, things just turned themselves around.  I had the best weekend ever.  We swam.  The boys hit buckets of balls.  We ate ice cream and had sleepover parties.  Wonderful.

And today.  Wonderful again.  

The sewing room is almost all organized (when I say sewing room, I should say basement because I took out 11 bags of toys for Goodwill and 4 bags of garbage while organizing the "sewing room").  

The boys went to tennis.  I did grocery shopping.

I made dinner and my family actually ate it.

And I went to hot yoga for the first time in weeks and weeks and spent 75 minutes just saying "thank you".

See, it is all coming together.  Everything feels right again.

PS - I have really missed my blog.  Really.

It is An Epidemic

PS - Funny to be able to say you know exactly what a person is going through.  But I do.

Let Me Tell You

I have no idea where time has gone.  No idea.  How could my last post have been July 26th?  I have had more than enough to write about.  Maybe that's the problem.  So much to write about because so much going on.  So much going on, no time for me.  No time for me, no blogging.  This makes me a little sad.

My last day of work in the office was July 29th.  I have been working ever since.  Don't get me wrong, I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work from home but between the boys, work, a house that needs a huge amount of work, visitors and on and on and on ... not much getting done sewing wise.

And if you could see my sewing room.  Yikes.  I started to reorganize and I just made a bigger mess. It is still in mess form.  Maybe today is the day for that room.  We shall see.

Anyhow, hopefully you will bear with me while we find our groove over here.  I don't suspect it will takes us long.

PS - we got our pictures taken by Blue Lily Photography on Sunday.  I can't tell you how much I love Wendy and Tyler.  They are amazing people.  Absolutely lovely.  My only regret ... I wore a grey dress. Had a massive headache and put the first thing on that I could find.  No worries though.  I know the pictures are going to be amazing.  And I am hoping that we can get Wendy and Tyler to take our pictures for years and years to come.  (thank you thank you thank you, Wendy and Tyler).

PPS - Wendy and Tyler taught me how to use my camera in one of their workshops.  Amazing.  I know all about my camera now.  And I so want to take their next workshop .... how to get to Washington, D.C. in October .... hmmm ...
