Ugh, has it really been over a month since I've posted? What can I say, 3 kids is a bit of an adjustment, apparently.
Have been doing almost no crafting. I bought some fabric about 3 weeks ago and washed and dried it per my usual routine. 3 weeks later, ironing it is still my major activity. That and reading the Folkwear catalogue. I also own the Folkwear Book of Ethnic Clothes but that is apparently a little too challenging. So I'm sticking to the catalogue for now. Not sewing anything, mind you. Just perusing.
Actually Al and I did manage to wrangle all 3 kids to and from a foreign country without misplacing anyone. And (as Al pointed out) for the first time we all returned from a vacation no more sick than when we left.
We were in Mexico for a week with my brother and his lovely little family. My mom was there for a few days as well. Plenty of family bonding and beach time. Unfortunately not very good Mexican food (we didn't get off the beaten track enough and at the fancy resort they apparently think gringoes want 'fusion' cuisine more that actual Mexican food...
Anyway the trip was great and what a treat to come home to some real winter weather and the inauguration of our new president. Did everyone see the video of Obama doing 'the bump' at one of the balls? I love that man.
