Here's to quilting, cookies and chocolate. With cookies and chocolate there will be no dishes to wash, so at least the kitchen will stay clean.
    I never get mad at me for sewing instead of cleaning---------hubby is another story!

That is to quilt. Believe me I miss him.
    I do not envy you building a home 700 mi away. We did it 5 years ago but neither of us were retired. What a night mare!! Glad he is able to oversee the "project" himself. As for you .... well quilt on!! Can not wait to see what you accomplish!

    The ONE time a year the house gets a GOOD cleaning is before vacation because we have someone come to stay at the house to pet sit and I don't want her to be grossed out! Haha! Other than that, it's sort of a 'lick and a promise' as the saying goes!

    I feel the same as many do here. I miss him when he is gone but I enjoy the time alone, less picking up, cooking, laundry etc. I can get so much more done by myself, but yes it can get lonely. Yes it is hard to got through the whole building phase. I hope you are getting a very special craft room in your new home. That's my dream, a special craft room, so I don't have to pack and unpack my stuff. Or having my dining area utilized by my stuff. I have a long table and at one end is my machine and pile up my tools and supplies at days end and we eat at the other end. Can't wait to have my own room. I know I would craft more if I didn't have to dig things out of my bedroom closet.

    Oh yes, it has a craft room. It is 16 x 28. DH already has his shop built. He knew better that to argue about my sewing room. Besides, as he says, If momma is happy, we all are happy! :0)

    Mustangquilts, I certainly understand the joy of alone time and love having it myself.
