Busy

What a crazy week! We were away from home every day this week. I am such a home-body! I love being at home with my kids, there is this quiet rhythm that is so peaceful. I wouldn't call it a routine because it's not the same everyday but it's more of a flow. Weeks like this really make my head spin. I feel overwhelmed by the smallest projects, and I'm easily discouraged. I feel like I haven't been recharged. I always wanted my home to be that place, and now, sometimes I'm surprised at how strong that pull has become. That need for everyone to be here together, doing their own thing, but just near. Ben was out of town last week and it felt so good for us to all be home together last night. We ate pizza, drank coke, and watched a silly movie. I woke up feeling tons better!
Maddie had a trip to the ER. She had been limping so we went for x-rays. Turns out she pulled a ligament in the bottom of her foot. Of course before they came to that conclusion we had to have a million (OK not a million but it felt like it!) x-rays, blood work, and 6hrs in a hospital room.
I taught a two day crochet class at Elizabeth Anne's. The second day Molly came with me and taught a kid class. They were just too cute! Molly had them making crocheted bracelets, bows, and necklaces. They even sold a couple of things to customers! Needless to say Molly loved her first Crochet class!
And just for being gone so much I had this waiting on me last night! And there is more in the laundry room waiting to be washed. I better get to it. Oliver Rain, I haven't forgotten you! I'm still trying to come up with something. LOL!

Wow. Don't even worry about it. With a week like that, a meme is the least of your concerns. I am so impressed that Molly taught a kid class. What a little marvel!

I hope little Maddie is feeling better. What a sweet little one she is.

I am a home body, too. I love all the things connected to hom and home-keeping for my family. I love the flow that you talked about, it's so rejuvenating to my spirit. You are a great Mom with a young daughter who can already teach crochet class! It shows alot of teaching by you to her! I'm inspired. I love your blog and check it every day. It's part of my daily round. Shelly in Utah
