it's spring break here where i live and let me tell you..never in my life would i have thought that i would dislike spring break. aiyayaya. these are going to be 2 very long weeks. my oldest has even drawn a calendar on her easel chalkboard counting down the days until school starts back up. with the hubs busy with overtime it's not a season we can take a vacay in. so it's more of a torture having no school then a fun 2 weeks of holidays in our house. i guess that's just a reminder that i'm a grown up now...lol. gone are the days when i counted down on my own calendar until spring break started to go have fun with my friends and have no school. it struck me as funny how similar the situations are but in reverse. when you are little you love school and then you get older and don't want to go and can't wait for that brief but awesome break of fun. and now here i am again wishing there was school. i think if my hubs could have holidays right now i may feel differently but this is my fate so i'm putting it bravely out there - i. don't. like. spring. break. there, i said it. phew. i feel better now.
i'm still not 100% (waiting to see a specialist next month) so that's making it even harder to entertain these wee ones. top it off with fog, non stop rain pours and you've got a pretty crappy spring break. bleh. i also haven't been able to sew for weeks! with being ill and also having had a procedure done on my upper back near my shoulder it's made it really hard to type, knit and even sew and has me pretty down in the dumps i must say. i'm trying to do it in little stints now. i sewed the other day for about 15 mins and will do a tiny bit more today again. so i apologize for the lack of sewing goodness on the blog lately. there's been a lot of knitting going on around here but that's mostly due to me being unable to sew. at least i can lay down and feel crappy and knit. it's a bit harder to do that while sewing..lol. i can't wait to be fully reunited with poppy though. her and i have some new patterns in the works and this has sure slowed us down.
oh and did i mention we've been living in utter chaos? yep. big time chaos. you know when you redecorate and reorganize and your house turns into a bad episode of hoarders and you have no idea how it got that way? well that's my house. i can't even hardly get into my bedroom. plus my bed? what's a bed? mine's covered in 5 (i'm guessing), count em' 5 + loads of laundry...eeek! i def need a fairy cleaning lady..lol. we had a quick trip to the mainland last weekend and picked up a lot of new lovelies for our condo from ikea. i can't wait to show you all my new office space. i've now taken over our dining area and a good chunk of our living room. oops...lol. oh well....you gotta do what you gotta do right? the joys of condo living. you peeps without houses know what i mean right?
so the hubs and i have slowly been assembling ikea furniture after ikea furniture and watching non stop homeland (LOVE this show) and starting to get our lives back in order. we're selling our old stuff to offset the cost of the new and also to make room for the new stuff...lol. so as the old pieces sell we assemble the new ones. the kids and i definitely do not do well with this kind of living situation though. it's sort of a weird feeling being in limbo. hopefully by the end of this weekend things will be in more of a normal state again.
