Full-time momming plus crafting = ??

Being a full-time mom of 2 can be pretty interesting and a lot of fun, but a lot of the time it’s exhausting.  I spend the entire day taking care of the little ones, and by the time I get them off to bed, I’m tired.  Sometimes I’m exhausted.  Sometimes I’m completely spent.  Sometimes I fall asleep while getting the little one to bed.  After dragging myself out of his bed, I generally power through to enjoy a few hours of My Time.  Sure, it would probably be a good idea to go right to bed and get some rest, but if I don’t get in some craft time, I get cranky.  There’s so little time in the day to do things for myself, so I usually power through, get a second wind, and get in at least an hour or two of knitting, spinning, sewing, or whatever I happen to feel like doing.

Well, that’s not at all what I sat down to write, but there you go.  I’m in the moment.  :0

This morning I was looking at Facebook and was very excited to see that there was an article about the Mother Bear Project in the Huffington Post.  It goes into detail about why Amy started the nonprofit and who exactly the hand knitted or crocheted bears are gifted to.  It brought me to tears, and I think it’s enough content for the blog today (did I mention that today was a particularly exhausting day?  It was a good day, though).  Check out the article! (Sorry for the clumsy link, I’m still learning how to link things!  Please accept this photo of a cute bear as my apology)

Now I’m going to spend a precious hour or so spinning!  I’m looking forward to showing you some progress!
