I watch the grand kids every day, Monday through Friday. I get to their house a little before 6 am. I get the two oldest kids up at 7 am. They get dressed, brush their teeth and are out the door to catch the bus. I don't have to feed them breakfast, or make them lunches because the school district provides free breakfast and lunch for all students. I then get the middle boy up, he attends a different school, and he gets dressed, sometimes he eats, sometimes he just hangs out until it is time to go catch his bus. Then it is just The Finn and I. Most days Finn is up when I get there.
Finn is a bit of an insomniac, he wanders the house all night long. He is put to bed around 7:30 pm every night. The nights he sleeps 12 hours he gets up happy as a little clam, he is easy to get along with, and behaves. Nights he is up and down, Oh boy! It is a struggle between us both all day long. The biggest kids get home at about 4 and the middle boy about 5. I make sure homework is done, some nights I make them dinner, and make sure they get their chores done. Many nights their mom and dad don't get home until well after 8 pm. Long day for all of us.
Where is this going you wonder? Well I don't cook hardly at all at my own home. I text DH on my way out the door to let him know I am on my way, and he has dinner ready for me when I get home. So imagine my surprise when I opened the pantry the other day, pulled out the shelf with the pots and pans and discovered this.
I get wee bits done every now and then. I got my hexie table topper sewn together. What do you think? Should I finish it off with some half hexie rounds? Or leave it as is, and put a backing on it?
While I am watching Finn I do handwork. I have been making yoyos. I have a plan, I need to draw it out better, but I know I need a whole bunch of these.
All I know is like so many others lately I am just too busy, and tired to sew. Do you miss it when you don't have time to sew? Even if it is only a few minutes a day?
