Hello December


Thank you all for your concern and love. The situation isn't something I can talk about now -- or hopefully ever -- but I do appreciate your messages. Truthfully, out of everyone affected by this, I'll be affected the least. I should be grateful for that even while I do hurt for the others. This will end up being a pretty long, drawn-out thing and all I can hope for is for us to make it through. It's completely out of any one's hands at this point. Thank you so much for your friendship though, all of you. You girls are the best. Please don't worry about me.

So, on to something else now. Thanksgiving. We spent 8 days in Utah with my whole family and we had a blast. We flew up and William did great -- he slept the entire time on all four flights we had up and back. My side of the family got to meet Will for the first time and everyone was stoked and loved him (of course).

So, I'm a huge procrastinator. I've been getting better in my old age, but I still do it from time to time. I planned on getting all these birthday presents done before baby showed up but kept putting some of them off and now they're late. I finally finished these two aprons that were supposed to get to Kelly and Christie last month. Oops! Forgive me, I have a new baby. At least now I have an excuse for procrastinating. :) Also forgive the bad photos. It was really bad lighting. The pattern is based pretty much on the Vintage Apron pattern in, of course, Bend-The-Rules.

(Pretend to be surprised when these get to you, girls. They're going in the mail today!)

Will and I took a walk today. It's pretty chilly and windy, but the sun and sky are beautiful. It was really nice and helped me clear my mind a bit. Though it was depressing to put on a sweatshirt that used to be too big, only to find out that it's pretty tight now. I've got some serious work to do on my fitness.

Happy December all!

Man-oh-man those are some cute aprons! I have to get that sewing book already.

That snowy picture is just the best thing ever and I want to be there right now.

I seriously need a winter home that I can live in when California is all sunny.

Sorry about all of the stuff that is going on. Hopefully the "long, drawn-out thing" won't be so long.

I am glad to hear that William was good for you on the plane. We just got home from Hawaii and I was pretty nervous about my big babies on the plane, but they did better than I expected. I got a lot of sunshine and I'm happy to be home to Christmas weather. I hope you start feeling happy soon. Your last post made me want to cry when I read it. It is good to know that you have so many people that love you though.

Those aprons are unbelieveably adorable. You crafty little mommy, you. And yes, having babies is really the best excuse ever, for a lot of things - being late, staying home from events you don't want to go to, not cleaning your house....oh, and one of the best ones - getting out of jury duty!

I'm good at pretending I'm surprised. After I turned about 14 my mom got sick of buying my presents without my imput, so we'd go shopping, I'd buy, and then she'd wrap. Ha! (It continues to this day, she called me to ask me if her idea for my present was good.)

You are so talented - can I have some of the credit? :-)

Keep taking those walks, they are good for mental health too.

I think everything is going to be OK.
