Five pictures are worth a thousand words? In our house chaos reigns. It's a wonder that I get anything done at all, and indeed I feel like I get very little done. But my website, and my Ravelry designer page say otherwise. It's exhausting, being a work at home mom. But I feel in a much better place (mentally, emotionally) than I was a year ago. Last holiday season was not the best for us. My dad had back surgery, and came home post-snowstorm on Thanksgiving to a house without power. When we returned home our children fell ill, and our baby girl ended up spending a few days in the children's hospital. I hadn't realized how much stress and anxiety I had been carrying around from those events until it started to lift. And while I still don't feel quite myself again (does any mom with young children?), things don't seem quite as gray as they did.
My house is a disaster, daily. And those children of mine, whew, those children. (Do you see those two above? Every. Single. Day.) But I'm finding more joy in the daily madness. And I have some very exciting projects happening behind the scenes that inspire and excite me.
Hoping you all do to in this very busy season.
