Life is busy right now, hence the lack of updates on the blog. Knitting orders are keeping up, too- which is wonderful and also overwhelming- I always forget about that during the summer then August hits and BLAMMO! orders all over the place. It’s wonderful (Helloooo Christmas money!) but this is the first busy season I’ve had with two kids, both of which demand a lot of love and attention (Being almost 3 is hard, and being 4 months is especially difficult)
So Effie spends a lot of time in the wrap, and Sam is learning to play independently. We have a friend that we are watching a few hours a day and that is wonderful for Sam, he really enjoys spending time with her and they play really well together, and if I can time that with Effie’s naps, well, then I might actually get to sit and knit. Maybe. But the majority of my knitting happens after dinner and kids are to bed. We are still definitely trying to hit our stride, and trying to be as organized as possible helps, I’ve been doing meal planning and chore scheduling to keep up on the housework. It’s so nice to not have the 4:30pm freak-out when you realize you haven’t thought of what to make for dinner.
It’s so funny, all year long I am thinking two months in advance- so it feels later than it really is. I keep forgetting it’s still August, because all of August and September I am focusing on Halloween orders, and then all of October and November I am working on Christmas orders, and just like that, boom, it’s January! I know it’s so cliche, but time really is flying by so fast- and I can’t believe Sam will be three on Wednesday and Effie is already 4 months old. This summer has just been a total blur! Thanks, my loyal readers, for putting up with me while I’ve been so neglectful of this space- But make sure to follow the Facebook page, as I update there a bit more frequently.
