    I realize it's snacktime already and I completely missed feeding the little ones lunch!! (Only when they're upstairs playing quietly, if they're down here bugging me, it's a little hard to forget it's lunch or dinner time!) If it was just me, I could sew all day, but I'm sorta responsible for others!

    me too! and I try threading the needle and the needle hole starts moving because I need to sit back. Usually I go downstairs for a snack around this time. Then when I go back up I feel better and start round 2!
