Day Two Hundred Thirty.

When Jason first left I thought I would have plenty of time to finish projects and most importantly learn how to sew. I have been begging for a sewing machine for a few years now and for my birthday (in January ha) Jason sent me one with everything I would need. Good hubby!However, I haven't had the time to sit down and learn. After work I go take care of Emmie, have dinner, workout, go back to the house, shower, get ready for bed. By the time my day really ends it is past 9:00pm. All the time I thought I would have to learn just hasn't happened. I enjoy my routine now because it really is keeping me busy and before I know it each week it is the weekend. I am looking forward to going back to Alaska though and spending some me time teaching myself to finally use my sewing machine, finish the apron I started embroidering, finish our scrapbooks, and make a fleece blanket. I just don't feel like in the past eight months I have had that time to really throw myself into my crafts like I usually do. That could be a good thing too though meaning time is really passing!

I also know since Jason saw the sewing machine still in the box on his leave he hasn't let me live it down haha. By the time he gets home I seriously better be queen of sewing. ;)

It's soooo easy to settle into a routine. Today I broke mine and I was kind of "off" all day! I recommend sticking to it... but you know making time for things that are important- if that makes sense. ha ha

Oh my gosh, I really salute women who can sew. I grew up amish for a good part of my life and when my mom tried teaching me all the home maker stuff, like sewing, I baulked and refused. I might of had to dress like a home maker but I wasn't going to act like one:p That was in my teen years where I was trying to find myself. Now there are days that I kick myself because I don't even know how to sew on a button, HA! Where are you two stationed in Alaska? The hubby asked me this tonight:)

This made me smile. I really appreciate people who can sew as well. I think it's super hard! I tried once and it was a complete failure. I did complete a pin cushion once!
Good luck!!

We all have such big ambitions for our year long deployments, but in the end it's an accomplishment just to make it through each day in one piece!

Good luck! I bought a sewing machine a couple of years ago so I could sew my Halloween costume. Yeah, it was sad. My mom ended up making it for me :) haha!

I desperately want a sewing machine, although I feel like I'm in your boat -- I've been keeping so busy that I haven't had time to be really crafty.

The apron sounds really fun!
