Multi-tasking?? I Stink at it.

Hi, my name is Amy and I'm the friendly owner of this little blog. You might not remember me because all that has been on this blog for awhile is crickets. I have determined, I cannot multi task. I started a temporary job in early August that has sucked my brain, heart and life dry. It's a good job, I'm good at it, and I LOVE the people I work with. It's a job I believe in, support and could do darn well if I was in a different stage of my life.

But at this brain hurts.

The job was supposed to be six weeks, but as you know, life happens and I will be staying until early January...a date that I said I just cannot stay past, because I needed an end date, a date to reclaim my sanity. I have learned something.

Working Moms do NOT GET ENOUGH CREDIT. Seriously. I am trying to work, just 30 hours a week (yet getting 40 hours worth of work done in it!), take care of the kids, homework, housework, cleaning, cooking, groceries, AND running my handmade business. (I refused to stop my business as I have worked my behind off to build it and it's currently doing well. No way, was I giving that up.) I AM TIRED.

So this is why I've not blogged much, because there isn't a ton to blog about. Very little time to create, zero time to cook other than what I am legally obligated to provide to the small people for them to survive. No time for household management tricks or funny jokes.

I miss that. I miss my happy little handmade home life. And I'll get it back. But in the meantime, I wanted to say hello, I miss you dear readers, whether there is only one of you or a few, or a ton. I love that ANYONE takes their time to read what mindless drivel I have to say and love when someone can use a tutorial or pattern I made for themselves.

So watch out in January...I hope to have a TON of fun stuff to show you!

In the meantime, catch up with me on Flickr and Instagram (I'm "mamaslittlemonkeys") to see the little shots I have been managing to take of life and the things I've created!

I'll leave you with some gratuitous photography shots. :)

Bought myself some roses...

I write this post in an awesome place. I sit, cross legged on a lounge chair on the balcony of a fabulous condo on the bay of Orange Beach, Alabama. One son is downstairs on the doc looking for fish with his dad and one son is inside, playing with his beloved Yoshi. Life is good.

And that is a wonderful thing, because why we're down here is for a reason very few in this world understand. We are celebrating something called the Feast of Tabernacles. Very few understand what this means, very few even care. I won't go into the specifics, but it's a very important Holy Day time for us in our religion. It symbolizes the 1,000 year period after Christ's return when God will rule as the government of this world, instead of the evil, human world we currently live in. It's to be a time of much rejoicing, joy, happiness, and fun. It is to symbolize a time when there will be no more sorrow, hate, tears. The deaf with hear, the blind will see. No more pain, suffering, only joy. It's hard to imagine but many of us dream of that time, wait for it patiently.
   So we will finish our time at the Feast and enjoy it so, knowing we must go back to our lives in the world, but we do our best to learn, listen, and strive to keep God with us every day, all day. It's a very important lesson for me as a mother to teach my children, and they look forward to this time, rightly so, even if not for all the same reasons I do at this time.  Thankfully they have cute little videos like this one, from my old pal Jonathan and his crew. His church put together this cute video explaining what the Feast is to our children. Take a look if you wish. :) 
  I can't wait for a time when my boys can pet a lion and ride a bottlenose dolphin. :) Happy Feast!!Amy
