I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

sometimes things seem so unfair

I am so annoyed. DH's work has decided to send him to Mobile, Alabama for 2 months. His job is not a travelling one and he rarely has to go anywhere. Usually when he does he has time to plan and he is gone for 2 days at the most. He was supposed to be told last week as he is leaving next Tuesday, but he now has only a week including a holiday to get everything ready. He had dentist and Dr. appointments for next month. Snow will start at any time and I am going to have to deal with that by myself. I am also going to have to do all of the Christmas shopping, deal with our frequent power outages and everything else without help. I am not looking forward to being alone for 2 months. If I can find someone to take care of my babies I might go down and work remotely for a week or 2. Does anyone know of anything fun to do in Mobile? Any really good quilt shops? His company has been rotating people in and out every 8 weeks. I want to know why we get stuck with the worst winter months?
My SSCS is on it's way to it's destination. Pictures have been sent to Chookyblue and I feel good getting all my swaps sent off , and on time. ;) I hope the recipients enjoy what I sent. My Advent swap arrived here today. I can't wait to get started opening all my little gifties. Maybe it will keep me occupied while DH is gone. :`(
I have so many finishes this week and I can't post pictures of any of them. :( Two finishes for my SSCS and part of my nephew's Christmas present. I can, however, count them as finishes for my OPAM Challenge! November is turning out to be a great month. Maybe I can win the drawing this month. :D

lots of sewing time in the evenings will keep you busy

Sorry to hear - it's tough if you weren't expecting it at this time - short notice isn't fun.

Having grown up in the military I can assure you that you are very capable of taking care of business on your own there at home... there are thousands of women doing this each and every day. You'll be fine - repeat after me... I am woman hear me roar! LOL

Last winter when my husband was working out of TX - I told him to make sure that what ever hotel he was at would take dogs. Then I threw the dogs in the car and we went and spent 6 weeks down there. Can't remember what pets you have off hand... but if you can work remotely and have someone clear snow while you are gone... I'd be programing the GPS and packing my stuff!
