lack of crafting. *whine*

I have been so busy with Christmas and work (seriously, the most busy 2 weeks of the year at my job) that I have gotten nothing crafted. For Christmas, we go to 5 houses and wind up with a car full of gifts for every house. My house looks like a department store that just got hit by a tornado. The only difference is, I am the only employee working on putting it back together. I have been going nonstop since before Christmas trying to get it in order for the flood of gifts we always get. I's not working. I have thrown out 12 bags of trash, 6 bags of recycling, and 4 bags of toys and we still can't see the floor in 75% of the house. I get about 5 hours of cleaning in EVERY day, plus 10 hours of work (plus drive time) and attempt sleep. I am running on fumes and I can't wait for things to calm down around here. I have so many great new projects in mind! I am hoping to finish the playroom, the kids' room, the kitchen and the laundry tomorrow (later today). Then, I can tackle the livingroom, diningroom, and master bed/bath on Monday. Tuesday will be my crafting area, hubby's desk, and the guest bathroom. Wednesday, the quick pick up, vacuum, sweep, mop, and wash the linens and week's laundry. I need it all done by thursday (my first day off in 9 days) so I can do something fun with the kids before Emma goes back to school and get some sewing and crocheting done.

Thanks for reading if you made it through. If you didn't, just cheers me with a glass of wine :) Hell, cheers me anyway, I need a glass of wine BAD!

I understand.. Christmas bogged me down too. I have finally started working on a few projects. The house still needs a little work though...

I miss picking my dd up from school. It was the only time of day, every day that I couldn't do anything to pass the time waiting in line but crochet.

I feel for you! Yesterday was the first time I was able to craft in a long time! Good luck getting everything cleaned up!

Take a night off, have a glass of wine, and create something! You deserve it! Hang in there!

I wish! I don't get home from work until 1-2am every night. I can't even find my craft desk at the moment. It's on the list to clean this week, so I can get into something.
