The first few days of start up hours, for my husband's work can be crazy. It's a time of feeling whack-a-doodle, as far as routine goes. He's either working 2nd or 3rd or who knows what shift, and it throws me off completely.
It takes us a good few days to try and get flow to our daily routine, mornings, evenings, all of it. I took the day off from purging and organizing and moving stuff, but it has been overwhelming for me. I love to create crafty items, but it's sort of at the point, where I don't need to create so many items anymore. I have to come to a point of deciding what to get rid of what to keep, in that area.
I used to make homemade gifts, that required bottles, or jars or whatnot. Not anymore. The kids are all grown, and do not put up Christmas trees, so I'm not making ornaments like I used to. By the way, the "starbucks" ornaments in the making, made their way to the trash. I took off what could be useable, and tossed the rest. The kids did not want one for their homes/apt.
I used an old bookshelf to store craft items in my closet, so that is the focus, but now I'm trying to decide if I want to paint the bookshelf and put it in the upstairs bedroom. It is a solid wood bookshelf, so I will think a bit longer on that decision.
