Wow time flies

First off I would like to apologize for my absence.  I have been busy dealing with a family issue and I am still deeply involved with cleaning up the mess in my home at the moment.  G took some pictures of my 'mess' and I will post them later with a more elaborate explanation to my absence.

I have missed spending time with you all and trying to get my house in order before Xmas season officially starts.  My health is holding in by a thread at the moment and feel a burn out coming quickly but I can no longer stand the chaos in my home.

G is still looking for work and actually has an interview today and a friend has passed on G's resume to his own business and when the owner saw it, he said, "This guy sounds perfect for a new job opening." So we really hope he gets the later job because it seems like something he would love to do and has experience in doing it.

My stress levels are ridiculously high the last couple of weeks and am trying to relax for a couple of hours in the early morning and late evenings.  Not sure if it is working LOL.

I do have some projects that I will be working on soon.  Some of them are Christmas presents that I need to work on for the kids this year.  I need to make my way down to the Re Store and go shopping.  Any excuse to go shopping right girls?  LOL  I am looking for cabinet doors for one of the projects.I need four of them.  I also have to start working on getting addresses for Xmas cards this year.

My mom and her boyfriend have been gone for only 10 days and I miss them horribly.  I do try and call them at least once a day, especially since they are my support at the moment for my 'mess'.  I don't know how I am going to be like after 5 months without my best friend around.  I am not sure if I will ever get used to her leaving each year.  But I am trying not to be selfish but its very hard.  As we grow,  I cherish her time with me more and more and am afraid that the time she is away from me is time wasted.  *see trying really hard not to be selfish but I think I am failing :(

I have a few more ideas for homemade solutions like I did for the 31 days Nester challenge I did in October.      I was able to get all my posts done but I have more in my head I would love to share with you.  I am also going to try and get a few things to host a small giveaway.  If you have a product or service and would like to donate to our readers then please email me at homemakerhaven at gmail dot com and I will see if we can get set up for a december giveaway.

Well back to work for me.  I do hope you all are still around and look forward to spending more time back on the blog and I am still in the process of designing a new self hosted/domain blog that I will eventually switch over to.  I do admit that I have just been too exhausted to even reach over and open my laptop.

Have any of you started your Christmas decorations yet?s  If so, are you finished or is it a work in progress?  What is your most loved Christmas decor piece and why?

I was kind of exhausted after the 31 days thing. Looking forward to more posts!

I love ReStore! I have gotten some pretty awesome stuff there for DIYing. Sorry to hear things have been rough and I hope they just get better from here!

I hope G got the job! My husband and I are both losing our jobs at the end of March. The positions are being eliminated. I'm very, very stressed over this. I feel your pain!

Please remember to take care of yourself and find ways to be peaceful and relaxed this winter.
