The Musings, Notes & Book/App reviews of a Children's Writer

Time Factor

There’s been a lot of things that I’ve been meaning to do for the past 15 years but never had the time. As a working mom with two sons, a husband and a cockapoo, things tend to get hectic. Each day is a juggling act between work, home, after school activities and homework, a balance of fun and the mundane. My offspring consists of a 21 year old “Joe” who’s slowly making his way thru college and an eight year old ‘teenager’ Ian in elementary school. There’s a wide age gap, but video games tend to even out the playing field, my husband included, as he also attempts to save the world one strategic war game at a time. 
The garage is filled with unpainted canvases, flowerpots waiting to be filled and fabric
about to be sewn into the most amazing chair covers I saw in a model home. My dream to visit distant lands such as: Thailand, Morocco and Australia remains just that…a dream.
Last summer I went to a childhood friends 50th birthday party & it hit me, that I’m suddenly fortyish (when did that happen?) and I still haven’t done half the things that i’ve planned on doing. When did my “To Do” list become my Bucket List?

First Project on the list: Cover Chairs to give dining room a face lift
If you have Kid’s under 12, Washable slip covers are a necessity. 

Love these chair slip Covers
