How Long Has It Been...?

A rhetorical question, if there was one..
I have received some emails about what was going on with me and the blog, so here it is.
I have neglected this blog for a really long time and not for a bad reason. My son is 19 months old and a handful; healthy and happy but very demanding of my time and attention. Then, my daughter, who is in Kindergarten, has her own needs with school and extracurriculars. The family... It has been nonstop.
Before, I was always able to find time after putting my daughter to bed, but now after everyone is asleep the energy and inspiration are just not there. I have only made one maxi skirt about a year ago, nothing else.
I am hoping that things will start changing and I'll be able to carve bits of time for this little hobby.
I find, more and more, the truth about the preciousness of time and have been struggling with it. Sewing is time consuming; moreover, for me it is a process that I cannot split into 10 windows of 20min each. I kind of need a block period of time so that I can focus and submerge.
I know that many of the sewers out there have families and jobs and still sew. I don't know how you all do it!
So, bottom line, hopefully, I will come back to making stuff and posting about it. The "when" part if it is unclear at this time. Crossing my fingers...
