I’ve been struggling with this space for a while. I’d created it to be cutesy crafty place to show off my crafty side. A place for fond, happy, kid moments; trying, in an unconscious way to copy the format of some of my favorite blogs.
The thing is.
That’s not me.
Well – me anymore.
My kids are almost “done” I like to say. At 14 and 19 I don’t parent as much as give advice or guide, (or bitch and moan as my oldest likes to think). Sometimes yell.
One’s in COLLEGE!
Hell when did that happen??
I have a freshman in high school and a freshman at community college. I homeschool(ed) both of them.
One has anxiety and the other over compensates and helps all the time around the house.
I cuss, I struggle, I gripe, I do yoga, I “pray” for growth. The personal kind. I work in a fabric shop! I’m having weird, feminine health issues and I think I need to reclaim ME.
I drink wine, and Old Fashions and Manhattans.
I want to be skinner. But I’m not.
And I worry to much.
I love fall and to have the windows open all the time.
I really want a nicer back yard, but can’t seem to bring myself to do the work to make it happen.
Or maybe I simply need to create a new me.
I haven’t figured it out yet.
We don’t necessarily craft. But I love to sew and cook, and do a great many other things that I just don’t make time for – and a great portion of my days is chauffeuring my girls around.
This blog is growing and changing, and it probably will for a while. I think I need a less cutesy blog and a more “this is my life” blog. Bear with me? (Still with fond, happy, young adult memories?)
Hi – My name is Sarah
