Midnight snacks ...

Since I'm sleeping like ... well, I'm not sleeping really, so why bother pretending.  Rather, I've been up late at night, getting in some sewing. 

Like last night ... I went to bed at 1 a.m.  Why?  Because I was up making a sandwich.  Not just any kind of sandwich, but the good ol' quilty kind. 

I figured this was the perfect opportunity to finish one last project in my studio (not including the quilt blocks that I owe to my bee peeps).  I'm talking one last, honest to goodness, quilt for yours truly. 

This quilt was actually started this time LAST year.  So, I guess it's time to finish it anyway.  Right?  And who is really going to pay attention to the fact that the label was incorporated into the back piecing of the quilt (last year) and that it's dated 2009 ... no one's going to look at that, right!?

It's good to stay up late and get things accomplished.  Now if I could only feel that way about packing ...

I have no words ...

I have started, and stopped, this post about a million times in my head.  How do I say the words?  How do I explain what's going on?  I feel like I can't.

What I can tell you is that my husband isn't here. 

He hasn't been for about a month. 

Yes, I am still married, but I'll be doing the "single mom thing" for a while.  And I hate it.  I don't know how you single moms out there do it.  Granted, I was a single mom before I married my husband, but that seems like ages ago, and things have changed (gotten harder) due to the economy. 

I just have no words right now, but please understand that I'm still here, still sewing (when I have time), still working, and still holding the fort down.  I just may not be posting as often. 

Hope you all are doing better than I am!
