How do they do it?

Ahh!  I can’t believe I haven’t blogged in TWO WEEKS!  I’m so sorry for the accidental hiatus, I’ve just been buried in work.

I swear, I don’t know how these people do it.   How do all these bloggers have time to sew, cook, craft, take pictures and write blog posts ON TOP OF raising kids, shopping, eating, cleaning and sleeping?  Do they sleep?  Most of the bloggers I follow have 2-6 children.  How do they do it!??  I wish I knew their secret . . .

I must say, I was completely unprepared for this holiday season.  I opened my shop with only 3 items, sold all three and my shop was “closed” for the season within a week.  Had I been more prepared, I would have stocked the shop with ready to ship items – but maybe next year.

I’ve barely done anything related to the holidays.  We finally put the lights on our tree and decorated it, but I haven’t finished making the tree skirt yet.  I made one yummy holiday treat and FINALLY sent out our cards.  But that’s it.  No shopping, no other decorations, no handmade gifts or party dresses made.  I feel like this holiday is going to pass me before I catch up!

BUT – Hideko and Yuki are off on a mini-vacation with Hideko’s mom for two days and two nights!  That means it’s just me!  With TIME.  No work, no kid, just time.  And here’s how I spent my time today:

1. Made a to do list.
2. Took a nap.
3. Sent out holiday cards
4. Had a hot dog.
5. Watched a gorgeous sunset.

Hmmm . . . I was only able to cross one thing off my to do list.  So, not the most productive day, but I still have the night ahead of me and all day tomorrow!  I have tons of sewing to do and plenty to blog about too.  Let’s see how much I can get done in the next day and a half!

How are your holiday preparations going?

Hope they are going well 🙂
