I get about 10-15 minutes to myself then:
& he still ain't saying ma-ma
By week's end he will have to be surgically removed from my hip. The few naps he maybe takes last 10-30 minutes. But honestly, I am not mad. Though Kiddo & I spent every waking moment together, she keeps herself entertained-not detached-just independent & totally into Dad and still is! I'm liking Jr's attachment, he's my sweet little Mama's Boy and he knows it.
He is still sleeping well at night, but by 10:00pm my brain completely shuts down. The only thing I can focus on at this point is moving furniture. So AGAIN for the 300th time I rearranged my basement sewing area. Though this time, I think I got it right.
A few weeks ago I managed to kick hubby out by convincing him that Jr needed a play area, & because he is wanting to walk. Once I set up the play-yard, I rearranged my stuff. My only issue in the area is hubby's EMPTY fish tank. If he doesn't add fish by summer, it's going on Craigslist.
I converted my craft armoire into a computer armoire by removing the extension. Moved all my computer/work related junk in there.
Next, setup a new sewing & cutting area & rearranged my stash. Got rid of the crappy Joann cutting table that is completely destroyed, and opted to again use my old dining table. I added a 3/4"x40"x70" piece of plywood on top, cut & purchased at Home Depot.
The height is OK at 32" since I am cutting & sewing on the same table. I tried adding bed risers to bring it to 36" but it was too tall & overwhelmed the area. I stapled on a stash-busting skirt to cover up the stash
1. pajama pants for Jr, cut from dad's old shirts 2. Vogue 8561 just needing elastic 3. bibs for Jr cut from old t-shirts, needing neck ties 4. Vogue 8480 about 3/4 finished
(Yes, that is a new sewing machine, and no, I don't want to talk about it.)
This is my view from the machines. Jr's new play area, he likes it pretty good, except when he needs me, which has been ALL DAY for the last 2 days. It keeps him busy when he wants to practice standing/climbing/yelling. Soon I will need to expand it because he wants to walk.
Patterns & stuff
more junk. All four drawers are FULL.
Lower shelving area with notions & stuff
even more junk
I am going to try my best to break through this slump & have something to show for this snowy shut-in.
Wish me luck.
