Creative Itch

I have been so busy with getting ready and homeschooling that I haven't been doing any sewing! Yikes! I have a definite creative itch and I can hardly wait to get sewing again. I am hoping that we get into a routine that doesn't require as much of me so that I am able to start sewing again :)

I have been doing a lot of reading for myself as well, at night after the kids go to bed. My son has ADHD and I have been doing a lot of reading on that and related topic (parenting etc.) If anyone has any ideas or tips for coping with the challenges that ADHD presents, do tell!!! I read the best book called "All dogs have ADHD" by Kathy Hoopman. If you have a child or a friend of a child who has ADHD, then you need this book! It helps children to understand themselves and others with ADHD. I got another one by the same author called "All cats have Asperger's" to help my kids understand a little bit more about their cousin and his challenges. It is great too!

I also have a friend who writes fiction and I have been reading her unpublished books. They are really good! I am hoping she will get them published soon!

My DD is taking dance classes (something she was never interested in until now- she's 10). It has been going very well and she is enjoying it a lot. We are looking forward to putting DS in football at the YMCA which will start in another month or so. We are definitely keeping busy :)

I know how you feel about not being able to sew! I miss it so much I am going to take a vacation next week to get ready for the holiday season!
Visiting from SITS.

It's hard to take some time for yourself when there are so many other things calling out. I've missed my sewing too this summer. But maybe when we get back into a routine, there will be more time for crafts.
