there's just one thing that's getting in the way

I know, I know, I disappeared again. I won't regale you with stories of computer issues and crazy work schedules, because I'm sure no one really cares about all that anyway. I'm here now.

So I'm pretty sure most of you who read this already know about what's going on with my family, but I'll say it anyway... My brother and his wife are right now in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, getting ready to bring my two new beautiful nieces home!! Here's one pic - if you want to see more, you can go to their blog (or my facebook):

I'm working on a craft project for the girls, but I won't post it here until it's done and the gift has been given. Although I have to give mad props to Andrea for sending me on the right path to find the pattern, which is pretty much just awesome. Since I've spent a lot of time crocheting like mad, I haven't had much time to read lately. For some reason it's taking me forever to get through Jesse Stuart's Taps for Private Tussie, probably b/c I don't pic up the book very often with everything else going on. I'm also reading Voyage of the Dawn Treader on the side, but I'm sure you can imagine how that's going as well. I mostly picked it up b/c it was something easy to throw in my purse on my way to the dentist's office to get my root canal. Yes, boys and girls, while the last month has been relatively uneventful for me personally, the eventful things have been not so much on the fun side of things.

Overall, I'm mostly thrilled that we got out of the crazy cold month of January. Friday night was actually pretty warm, so I decided at the last minute to go run around downtown for a bit. I bought some adorable fleece sweatshirts for the girls at the Disney store, had a bird poop in my eye, got hit on by a homeless guy, and crocheted for 2+ hours on the train. It was a pretty productive trip.
Okay, that's all for now. Maybe I'll be better and post again soonish?! Here's hoping.

If it's what I think it is, have fun with all the freaking hand sewing!! You should have told me - I would have mailed you the pattern. If it's not that then, um, never mind.
