I'm so looking forward to the long holiday weekend. I worked really hard last weekend to do the more difficult chores at home, carpets have been cleaned, storage room emptied and then reorganzied. (No pictures, I couldn't do it to myself.) I still have a few bins to sort out, mostly books the girls said they did not want, but from which they already pulled out several to read. I can do the final cleaning this weekend and it will be ok. Mostly clothes to sort and purge through. The worst of it is done.
Which means, I can have more down time over the holiday. Being a single working mom who also shares a home with my mom means I have a lot of things to take care of. Most of the time it is ok, I can handle it. Sometimes it can get overwhelming being the sole person that is responsible to manage everyone's appointments and care. Which is where my knitting/spinning comes in. That is where I pour me into. Where I can find solace and peace. I don't know where I would be without my knitting. And I don't want to know!
