So.....here's the deal.
As much as I wish I could have shared our fall decor with you all, and as much as I would like to share the Christmas decor with you once I get it up, the reality is....I just can't. I can't do it all. I have to face the fact that I am indeed NOT Superwoman. I only have 6 weeks left until this baby is due and we don't even have a crib or a changing table set up. Life has been so busy and I feel SO unprepared for this one.
I also feel like this at this point.
Our other two kiddos are in soccer this year and they're in different age groups so they haven't different game times or sometimes the same game time on different ends of the park so Hubby and I have to do a halftime switcheroo-swap in order to watch both kids play. I'm sure it's quite a site to see me speed waddling back and forth! I've been finishing out my waiting list for the feedsack shower curtains (almost done!) plus packaging up other Etsy sales and getting them shipped out. Combine all of that with the amount of time I've spent running to the bathroom every time baby moves and I've been one busy lady. Homeschooling has been hit or miss during all of this, and the housework has just gone down the tubes and it makes me crazy. I don't function well or happily when the house is constantly in a state of needing to be cleaned.
So....all of that being said, I feel like I need to take a break from blogging for awhile and keep my priorities in line. The Christmas season is almost upon us and I am bound and determined to make it as stress free and fun as possible. Last year was nutso and I felt like I never got to do anything carefree and fun with my kiddos. Not this year though. I've turned down opportunities that would have become obligations, and I'm scaling back on things that just aren't a priority. And as much as I love you guys, you're not more important than time spent with my family or time spent on my duties at home. (I'll be closing down my Etsy shop too.) So I plan to be scarce around these parts for a couple of months.
I might pop in here and there because I do have a couple of projects that if they turn out like I'm hoping I would love to share if I can. But don't expect any sort of regular posts or even that I'll share my seasonal decor. I just don't have the time (or the energy at this point...remember the fat gorilla?) to do it all.
If you don't already follow me on the Facebook page, be sure to do that if you can. It's much quicker and easier to share a cellphone photo and post over there than it is to take a whole series of pictures and then spend the time editing them all, water marking them, and then writing a whole post with it. If you're not a Facebook follower then you've already missed one of my dreams come true. Hubby bought me a Hoosier cabinet for my birthday and I am SO excited about it! I absolutely love it, and it looks amazing in our kitchen.
So anyways, I just wanted to give you a heads up and let you know what's going on and the reason I've been scarce lately and will continue to be scarce in the next couple of months. Baby #3 is due January 9th and we're all getting very excited for her arrival. She will be the ultimate project reveal. :D
But please be patient with me in the meantime.
