I am anxious to know how you KPers do it - where do you find the time to make all these beautiful creations, keep the house clean, cook the meals, do grocery shopping, sleep, eat meals, attend functions outside the home, do garden, flower, and outside improvement to property. I only have 24 hours in the day but it seems some of you squeeze out more hours to make all these beautiful projects. Please tell me how you do all this?

I don't think any one person does all of these things

I certainly don't. I also don't remember what it's like to just have to attend to just my own personal needs. My house may be dusty and a little shabby, but my autistic son is clean and fed, the cat boxes are scooped, and I'm not a candidate for the loony bin.

When I worked full time I had little to no time for crafts. I have scaled back my work and make time . Not having children at home also frees me up a lot. I do grocery shopping online and it gets delivered so that saves time too. I'm also a very fast knitter which helps. My husband is a pilot and away a fair bit and then I really kick back and knit more because the house is clean and tidy.

I don't! That is for sure. I teach all day, watch my grandsons a few days a week after school, and do all my errands and household chores on the weekend. I am lucky to get an hour or so a day to knit. Many days I'm just too tired to get anything done.

I don't get a lot of knitting and crochet time in but enough time for little projects for my children and grandchildren. I make a point to allow myself at least half and hour to an hour of my private time to do with what I want. Have done this for over 53 years of married life. It is difficult sometimes but even a half an hour of concentrating on one of my projects allows my mind to relax and regroup for next moments work or adventure.

Clean house?! I have two family members here (and pets) who constantly un-do what I have done!

I am blessed to have my two daughters with me. They moved in when my husband got so sick and helped care for him until he died. They are still here and they divide the household chores, cooking and cleaning. That gives me time to run my online business and knit :)

Is "clean house" a verb? Neither verb, nor noun here.

I use power washer to wash floors and leaf blower to dust. Dog washes dishes. I go nude.

We seem to drive - ALOT - so that has become my knit time! Back and forth to colleges, to the kids houses,etc. When ever I'm a passenger in a car, I knit!
