So what is new? I'm knee deep in potty-training my little guy, Brendan. He will probably be diaper-free in just a few short weeks...and I can't wait! My big guy, Declan went skiing for the first time last weekend - what a trooper! He took a 3 hour ski lesson and then had some lunch and hit the slopes with his big, high-school-ski-team cousin, Kevin. Kevin took my big guy up EVERY chair lift (except the red one) on Schuss Mountain and then, heroically, skiied Declan DOWN the mountain...
I am crocheting again. I took a little break after Christmas - I made my mother-in-law a shawl and it took a l-o-o-n-g tome so I was not anxious to pick up my hooks again. But I just finished a hat for myself and I am starting a baby blanket for a friend who is having a baby in April.
Ok - what else? I've joined the debate about dropping cable TV and watching shows from Netflix, Hulu and iTunes. Could save a couple of bucks and lesson our addiction to television. And when I say "our", I mean mine. Not my husband's or my kids'. My kids each get to watch one TV show per day. After they go to bed, I find myself on the couch for TWO PLUS hours, watching mindless nonsense when I could be crafting, scrapbooking, crocheting, blogging, cooking, working out, etc.
I have lots more to say, but I'm just happy to be getting my feet wet again. They've been dry for too long.
