2) My life is overflowing with Water Polo (My High Schooler), Reading Groups (My 2nd grader) and Lunch/Recess Duty (My 3rd Grader). Yup, all fun and games. Literally.
3) Yes, Helga (my sewing machine) has been giving me the 'Silent Treatment'. (Passive-Aggressive German...) It's mutual.
4) BUT - I have been doing some 'crafty' things... here's a sampling!
