A little update

Hi. I've been too busy to post on here, and I'm really still too busy, so this will be brief.

A friend mentioned Flylady, and I think my life will never be the same again (that's the hope, at least).

Last week we went with my sister & her kids to the Woodland Park Zoo. It was fun, and some of the animals put on a show for us. It was COLD, though. My favorite part of the zoo this time was the zoomasium. They had big green stuffed chairs in a corner with pictures of mama animals feeding their babies (Babe had her meal in that corner, as I'm sure many many babies have done before her). Very cool. Also in there they had these coool blocks called Tree Blocks. I totally want some (I guess I could make them....).

Babe had her 4 month checkup and though she's longer than Chick was at that age (75%), she's only in the 10th percentile for weight! She barely gained anything since 2 months, so it's been a busy week just trying to nurse her extra often & drink Mother's milk tea, etc. She went in this week for a reweigh and had gained enough that the Dr isn't concerned anymore.

This week has been layout...

...and in my spare time (ha ha ha), Easter prep. I'm doing these decorated cookies & stuffed mushrooms to take to my sister's house for the gathering. I'm making Chick an apron & a dress to match Babe's.

I'm afraid the quiet book won't get done, and I don't want to stress out trying to do it--I have enough going on right now.

Last night I had a wonderful dream...HH, Chick, Babe, and I went to Italy for a vacation. I was young and thin with thick black tights and a very cute fitted black wool coat on. HH and I were running through Piazza San Marco in Venice & watching the pidgeons fly up around us (don't know where the girls were at that point). Guess I'd better keep teaching Chick to speak Italian so that I can make that dream a reality.

Ciao ciao.

Italy sounds like fun. Take me with you.

The dress looks great. I adore pintucks!

I did flylady a bit a while back. I never really did it to a "t", but learned some tricks here and there that I still use.

Where do you find all these cool things? I love the cookies, and I love the blocks, and i don't understand about the clean sink, even with Flylady's help.
