Long time no....

...yeah yeah no nothing. How is it that I turned around for a minute and two months passed? I'm not going to apologize for not writing, by now if you read this blog you know that I am not that type of person. Life happened, plain and simple, and this blog doesn't own my life. I hate it when people sit there and apologize for 5 paragraphs saying things like "Sorry, Susie had the flu, Hubby flew to {some place far away}, and I had to do X, Y, and Z in 2 days!" or "Sorry, guys, I just finished popping out child # {enter # > 0} and it got a little busy, but don't worry 2 days after putting my body through major trauma plus now having a life form that needs me for everything in order to live, I'm right back too it! Hope my absence hasn't caused any of you to go into panic attacks!"

Really?! Nope, I made a promise to myself that I would never do that. Real life takes priority and this blog is only a journal of progress, projects and other miscellaneous stuff should I feel the need to write out my deepest darkest on the internet (not happening).

So what have I been up to? Work, lots of work. I work a schedule that requires I come in every other Saturday. When I do have a weekend to myself or any free time (in exchange for Saturdays I get every other Tuesday off) I do either 1. nothing 2. sleep 3. errands 4. clean.  Ok, Ok, only 1-3, 4 may or may not get done this weekend. Depends how busy I am with 1-3.

I have made 0 progress on any WIPs, but on the bright side I haven't started new projects I can't hope to finish either. Part of the problem is lack of doing #4 on the list stated above. My sewing area is under a pile of clothes and other miscellaneous crap at the moment. The other reason, space. No not outer space with all the pretty stars and planets and wonderful peace and quiet. Nope the teeny tiny corner my sewing has been relegated to in our bedroom in our one bedroom apartment. It has worked in the past, not well mind you, but it has served its purpose. Now I feel too claustrophobic to create and can't concentrate well when I do try to sit down and work on things.I'm hoping when we finally get out of this place in November then I can at least get more than 5 sq feet of room. Maybe a whole room. I can dream right? Then I would feel obligated to sew, right? Right?!

Ok, enough whinning. I'm done for now, that should cover me for another 2 months. See ya when I see ya.
