forever

It has been forever since I have "blogged". Please accept my apologies. things have been crazy and I've been busy -- not too busy to play Mafia Wars or some other stupid computer games, but too busy to blog. Sorry. Christmas has come and gone. It was really nice. A little stressful, but nice. The whole family was here, for a while any way.. Brieanna had to work so she wasn't able to be with us for most of the day, but everyone else was here for most of the time. We opened gifts and ate and had a nice time. Mikey seemed to enjoy his gifts.

I'm going to do a list of 52 things to do in 2010 like Katie did last year. I'm going to get it together and post it on 1/1/10.

So, are we calling it twenty ten or two thousand ten?
I'll post some pictures soon.
We also need to get a New Year's card out, since I missed Christmas .. I'll shoot for January 10.

The Olympics are going to be in Vancouver this winter .. I had a friend who said we'd go there together but I don't think that's going to happen -- probably need tickets and I don't have them. Ah, well.

I should have called this randomness since I'm just rambling .

bags




Here are two of the bags that I'm making for Christmas. The purple one is done. The other is almost. I'm making one for each of the girls - four for now: Kelly, Robin, Brieanna, and Carolina.

You can't really tell from the pictures but I actually quilted the bags completely. I think I'm getting brave enough to actually quilt an entire blanket. I did quilt the star quilt - I stitched around each star.

I hope that the girls like these.

Status Updates ??

So, yesterday I posted that I was very sad on facebook because Michael and Brieanna's dog Colin was "put to sleep" last night. I got many sympathetic, understanding comments, but then decided that I shouldn't have that as my status. So I changed it to "needs to change her status .. at work .. back to work, now." or something like that -- however, that apparently could be or was interpreted to mean that I wanted to change my status at work, not change my fb status ... so I deleted that and said I was at lunch. Much less controversial and the only mis-interpretation I can imaging is that I am "out to lunch", similar to "out in left field", which is okay with me. Better than someone thinking I'm quitting or totally dissatisfied or something like that.
