Two Weeks

I was on a short roll writing every Sunday, and then my husband went fishing for four days last weekend, and left me with the two ADHD boys. What a weekend we had, by the end of the weekend I was ready to take their drugs instead of them. But we did make it, and I did get a chance to do some sewing and crafting, without a husband at home you can make a much bigger mess, and not have to worry about cleaning it up. This weekend my daughter came home from college. I love her dearly, and this little guys misses her terribly, but it was time for her to go back. It is just not the same when she comes to visit as it is when she lives here. I think that is why I was so depressed and cried so much when she was leaving for the first time, as I new it would never again be the same. It is now like she is a guest when she comes home, and we don't really get the best of her. She is tired, wants to run around and spend our money, which we did, socks, pants. power bars, sports drinks and UGGS because it is cold where she is at. We can't afford for her to come home to often. I pray for her to have a safe trip home, as it is a dangerous drive.

I have been rather busy this week sewing after work, as much as I can, sometimes it is just total therapy for me. Right now my embroidery machine is busily sewing in the background as I type. I am still so amazed by that machine. I still have a lot to learn and get really frustrated with it sometimes but I absolutely love it. I just wish I had more time to play. I have been at Home Depot looking at scroll saws, think I will go to Harbor Freight and see if they are cheaper there. That will be my next purchase. I have a ton of things I would like to be cutting out and my jig saw is just to rough.
