I feel like I've been ignoring my blogs. I guess life is just busy. Hectic even.
Okay, so I'm pretty sure I add to the mess quite a bit. I mean, I have to cook and bake. With a kitchen as small as ours (and it isn't even as small as some that I've had in the past) it is pretty easy to make a huge mess. My sewing (which is an art - you know, that messy business) is definitely a mess maker. One day I might just figure out how to be organized enough not to make a huge mess when I sew. Probably not, though. (Hey, I'm just being realistic.) Of course, travel adds to the hectic lifestyle. I don't travel on a regular basis- it is usually a last minute thing. Which makes it even more hectic than normal travel. I flew to Virginia to see my grandparents last week. I was able to see her one last time. She passed away last Saturday.
Things are beginning to slow down now. I am settling into a routine again. We set up a new cleaning schedule. Fridays after school (yes, we stole this from my sister). Then we can have pizza and a movie night when they finish. It isn't just them cleaning, I have to clean as well. I think having the movie as a reward for cleaning will really help motivate them. Maybe then when people stop by I won't feel bad when I open the front door! It might also free up some time so I can get some sewing (and blogging) done.
I might even have time to pull out my camera.
