  • i do not understand. the housework and kids keep me more than busy to have time for anything else. but when the kids are in bed and the house is clean and i either miraculously have all the laundry done or just am putting it off, i love to scrapbook.

  • I've been getting really invested in cooking new stuff. so I research recipies a lot, and spend quite a bit of time trying to combine ingredients to make things cheaper. other than that, I clean a lot lol. the house is super tidy and I deep clean everything once a week. next year I'm prolly gonna be taking online classes, though.

  • I love to cook and bake, scrapbook, sew, make hairbows, and I love to read. Seems like I'm always busy with the kids and housework, so I don't have as much free time as I used to.

  • Housework is enough to keep me busy all of the time. But I also bake and crochet when I get time. A book here or there. Then driving little ones to and from school. Then time in the classroom. Somehow it all keeps me very busy.
