Thank goodness that I don’t have to entertain my boys 24/7 anymore. They are getting older and enjoy alone time, for which I’m grateful. We’ve tried to instill that in our boys by not over scheduling them –like so many of their friends are. You only get one childhood. They need time to be bored, right?
Since nothing is happening in Cumberland Creek because we are pretty much snowbound, I’m at home, too. I’ve cleaned and sorted so much that I simply can’t do it anymore. I’ve been catching up on some reading, plus I’ve discovered a new guilty pleasure—craft blogs. Ohmigoodness. These craft blogs make it look so easy to make a pom-pom rug, or a birdhouse, or a handbag out of an old sweater. Plus they make life look so manageable and beautiful in the mean time. As long as I really don’t hold myself to their standards, I’m fine. The minute I do, I start to feel pretty inadequate. But I tend keep them in my fantasy world. There’s no way I’d ever really have the time to become a hardcore crafter—or even really much of a crafter at all. (Except for now, snowed in, but with NO craft supplies. Imagine that.) My job, kids, house, and scrapbooking keep me occupied.
