Apologies for the lack in posting lately.  This stay at home mom gig is whupping  (sp?) my butt.  That, on top of house hunting, prep for Kindergarten and other transition to the West Coast stuff is just sucking my time out of the air I breathe.  I have had little time for sewing and when I do, I have little energy.

I don’t know how the stay at home mom sewing bloggers manage to churn out the garments that they do. My hat is off to you.  I hope to have something to show by the end of the weekend.  We are taking a break from house hunting this weekend.

    Whooping! (sp)

    Really, I always thought that stay at home moms had so much free time.

    Hang in there…you just made a major life transition. Give yourself a little bit of slack…it goes a long way. Staying at home is not for the faint of heart or the weak, it’s a brutal job. Soon school will start and you’ll have some more free time. Lots of love!

    Transitions always take some time and some getting used to. I expect I will hit a sewing lul at the start of next year myself (or a crazy upturn in productivity… depends on how transition to “real life” goes). Anyway, take your time and enjoy it before school starts and you are stuck in a routine that includes making paper bag lunches and helping with homework.

    I think you should never have to apologize for not blogging especially if you do it for enjoyment. That said, transitions can be difficult and time-consuming…I think we your faithful readers know that and understand. Hope some of it becomes easier soon and that you can get into new rhythms!

    I am a stay at home mom, and it is very time consuming. Add homeschooling(6 kids, 8 in all ) on top of that and there goes my day, when I do have time to sew, I’m pooped.

    I totally hear you about the stay-at-home mom thing. I’m a teacher and it’s as much work (if not more) to do that job as my teaching job. My X always thought is was so unfair that teachers were on “vacation” for the summer. So, he’d stop doing all his usual chores because I was home all day to do them. Turned out he always got the vacation – not me! You know it will settle down soon…just hang in there!

    I’ve been impressed by how much you HAVE been sewing and blogging since your move! I’m a stay-home mom and I have far less time in the summer when my daughter is out of school. I am looking forward to schools starting in about a week!
