In the sewing department…I’ve worked on nothing. I knew last week that I likely wouldn’t touch a sewing machine and that was almost true. Let me outline the last week for you. It was FILLED with kids and family.
-Kelli’s kids were here. Kelli slept upstairs after working the overnight shift as a nurse.
-Kalissa’s kids were here in the morning as she had doctor appointments.
Kalissa’s boys were here back in the late afternoon.
We had big family supper. Karl and Craig were here for that too. We played Ticket to Ride that night.
-Kelli and the kids stayed overnight.
-Kelli’s kids were here until early afternoon
-Carver and Gannon were here all day. Kalissa picked them up but I Craig got stuck at work so I got the boys back.
-Carver and Gannon were here all day. I invited my old childcare kids back for a play day.
-Carver and Gannon were here. Kayla and Jasper came too. They stayed overnight.
-I had Carver here. Jasper was here while Kayla ran errands. Kelli and her three kids were back here on Friday evening. They stayed overnight as did Kayla and Jasper.
We had big family supper. The adults stayed up WAY late. It was 1am when I finally was the first to go to bed.
We were playing Ticket to Ride. We played two games of the Rails and Sails version and then two of the Original Version. We like the Expansion Pack to the original. If you like games at all. I highly recommend Ticket to Ride.
Kelli is all smiles because she finally won a game!!
She even did “WOW” hands.
Kayla couldn’t believe it.
Karl was happy for her…as was I. Kelli NEVER wins. We think it’s because she finally got to play without herding children so she could finally concentrate.
The overall winner of the night was me. I smoked them once we added all the scores together. I was so happy Kayla played as she typically avoids playing. I think she had fun in the end.
-Jasper and Kayla were here. Kelli and kids were here. Kelli slept in the afternoon as she had to work the night shift that night. Another big family supper happened. Kayla and Jasper stayed overnight.
-Kayla and Jasper were here but left mid-morning.
-Karl was here late afternoon and stayed for supper.
As I write this, it is Sunday evening. I’ve been writing blog posts all afternoon trying to catch up for the days I didn’t write any posts because there was no time at all in the day.
Of course, like I typically do, I leave the one post that HAS to be written, the one for today, this post I’m writing now, for last. I couldn’t decide if I should run up to the sewing room and sew something so that I had something to share. I decided I’m not going to. I’m just going to tell it like it is. I didn’t sew except for a tiny bit.
The little bit of sewing I did was on Saturday morning. Kelli, Kayla, and I were working on a project making the Oui Jar pincushions. You can find the tutorial HERE.
Kayla was busy making the covered buttons and then switch to another project on the computer.
I’ve so missed crafting and doing stuff with the girls. I love the grandkids and love spending time with them…but honestly, I miss my girls. So much of our time is wrapped up in the grandkids, their kids, and not nearly enough time is spent with us doing adult things.
I know it’s just a season of life and things will slowly allow us to do more stuff without being so overwhelmed by just the kids so I’m trying really hard to appreciate this time…yet look forward to the next season of life too.
It’s heading towards supper time. I’m signing off. I’ll make some supper and then I’m treating myself to some time on the couch cross stitching. It’s been a long week!!
