Frazzled Friday – Sometimes I Can’t Do All The Things (and what I have been doing)

Tap, tap, tap. Anyone there?? I knew it had been a while since I sat down to blog, but I didn’t really think it had been two months!  😯  I’ve missed it so much honestly. I think I mentioned before that after Christmas I took a temporary part time job. And, it has literally rocked my world. I’m so used to having all the time in the world to do all the things. But, now I have about half the time that I had before, and I can’t seem to get anything but the necessities done. And, even those aren’t always getting done because I’m so ridiculously tired!! UGH! I’m glad it’s only temporary! But, don’t be surprised if I go dark again for another few weeks after this post. lol

Craft Room + Home Office

Hey there friends! I’ve been sharing lately on Instagram of the #greatroomswapof2019 that’s been happening here at our house. As soon as our older kids started moving on to college and beyond the younger kids were always vieing for the larger room. Out of the three bedrooms, one is in the corner and quite a big bigger than the other two. So, as always, when our daughter moved out, our middle son was asking to switch rooms. This always means painting, moving furniture, taking stuff off the wall, putting stuff on the wall, etc. This time also included making my youngest son go through his hoard stuff. And, yes, since middle son was moving, youngest son decided he would move too, so more of all of the same. But….the best part of it all was I realized we would actually have an empty bedroom. I thought about (for about a second) making it into an official guest room, but then I decided to make it all mine. That’s right, a dedicated craft room + home office! I’m so excited!! Here is what we are starting with.
