Oh, for the love of Thanksgiving! We are staying in Prosper (no traveling!) and spending it at the in-laws. And my good friend Paula is coming to Moorhead for the Thanksgiving holiday and I get to see her, yeah!!
Anyway, back to a new groove thing. I feel I'm always in a slump and I just want to get out. I'm not sure what that will take besides not being sick, getting enough sleep & food and just finding the motivation. Plus a little time alone might help too. SO...
What I have decided I can do is put on hold and resist any sewing for the store that I contribute to. I have also set the goal of getting some stuff done for my family and friends and made a check list (those are important for me to get things done). I just need to figure out the alone time (delegation maybe? or friends?). I'll keep you posted on how things go. You can bet, I'll be trying to find my motivation by getting my sewing room prepped for a few good cuttings, a lap quilts, a wall hanging and possible a small table runner. I'm getting excited already!
The one thing that isn't in a slump which I'm quite impressed about is, I've gotten good at pre-planning meals for at least 3 nights a week. This is super sweet when I know what I'm going to make and how long it will take. And Jim loves this too because dinner will be ready by 5:30 just after he gets home and then he has the rest of the night to do what he wants. It's also nice because after you clean up, you actually have some of your evening to get something done, like sewing and putting my kid-o to bed (which her dad does frequently!).
So, wish me luck with getting a new groove and say a couple of good prayers for us, CMW and I need them each and everyday to make it through.
