Feeling Trapped

With Kid # 5 in a full leg cast, it is not easy to get around and go places.  We both feel a little trapped in the house.  Hopefully as she gets better with her crutches and more confident moving around this feeling will go away.  We had a friend loan us a portable wheelchair, so that has helped some in being able to get out and go places.

One would think since we have been spending so much time at home, I would have more to show for it, but really I don't lol.  I guess if I really think about it, my laundry is done and my house is clean.  I just need more motivation to get my projects done.

I have started a curtain for my closet in my bedroom.  It is really the last project to do so that I can call my bedroom done.  Started it the key word here though, I am not really motivated to finish it :(

I have a skirt I made for myself that I need to finish.  Today I plan to stop and pick up the elastic I need for it.  Hopefully I will be able to show it all to you by tomorrow.

I  have started a wall gallery project in my hallway, key work again is started.  I really need to finish that and decide what pictures I would like to place there.  Right now there is just cutouts from newspaper of the frames taped to the wall.

I spend alot of time waiting on Kid # 5.  You just don't realize how self reliant a 10 year old really is until they can't get around on their own.  Right now she can't even shower, so we are having to do sponge bathes and wash her hair in the sink.  Next week she will get a different leg cast which will be water proof so then we can go back to showering.

Anyway, that is my little pitty party for the day.  Really the summer has not been that bad and I do like that I have been spending alot of time with Kid #5, she won't always be 10 and before I know it she will be grown too :(


  1. Bummer for the little one, bummer for you. But get to work on those projects and post a picture so I can be inspired.

  2. Oh, I feel so bad for both of you!! I hope, the new cast will make your lives a little easier! As for projects, I know how you feel. I have so many "starts" here, I want to cry!! I wish, I could go without sleep for a week...sigh...
