Sorry for the long absence!

Where have I been?

The last couple of years have flown by.  Well that may not be entirely accurate.  They have been filled to the brim with extra work…and that does make time go by faster, doesn’t it?  On Sept 1, 3013 my husband opened the doors to his garage in Gaithersburg.  He has kept his full time IT job and has managed to work some nights and every Saturday at the garage.  The first year was really tough.  He and his partners even redid the lobby and the bathroom themselves.  It looks amazing.  It is so clean and tidy (and well designed)!  Even the bathroom is clean and tidy…of a garage!  Can you believe it!?!?!?  Anyway, here we are now…two years in.

Looking back I can see I stopped posting on my blog almost exactly when the garage opened.  That is no coincidence.  I have been so busy running a household, taking care of three kids and a cat (Totoro passed away this summer and Squeezel is hanging in there with defective lungs).  Sometimes I have felt there is no time for me, my interests or even any fun at all.  That’s a little sad, right?  But…I don’t want to waste any more time complaining.  I have identified the problem and all I want to focus on now, is how to make things more fun.

My brother has helped me redo my blog (Thank you Uncle Fish!) and make it a lovely, inspiring and functional place again.  So it is now ready for new posts!

My friend and I fell into having an antique booth!  That’s fun.  Seriously fun, right?  So far, I have not been able to make much time for it though.  That is frustrating!  This has been a life long dream for me.  I need to make time for it, but how?  How do you prioritize something for you when your kids’ needs trump everything else?  I am really struggling with this.

Anyway, this blog is something for me.  It is all my own.  And I want to start posting regularly again.  Maybe I can post pics of things that I am selling at the booth?  And my current house and crochet projects?  And I will load some pics today and try to post some best of pics from the last couple of years <3
