sounds like you're feeling disconnected! Sam and Hannah are still in NICU, but breathing room air and getting Mommy's milk. They're growing well and Mom and Dad go to hold them and feed them several times a day. big sister Mady hasn't met them yet, being too young for NICU, but knows all about them and talks about them all the time. thanks for asking.

I try to send messages to Pami regularly, and hear from her about every other week. She has been feeling down lately, and her back/ ribs hurt a lot. I heard from her more than a week ago. She can sure use our prayers and warm thoughts. Barbara in SC

I'm here!!! Not doing much tat requires sewing, though I did start a "Princess Ariel" quilt for a friend's daughter and will be working on a superhero (BatMan and SpiderMan) for the same friend's son - she's expecting their third, and I didn't want the 2 older children to feel left out and neglected with all the attention going ot the newest family member.
I'm mending clothing for the family right now and working out what wardrobe additions I need to do to make an all-season wardrobe where everything can be worn with pretty much everything else. Next project is a light-weight jumper and then some more tops!
I've also been busy getting things ready for the upcoming MOPs year - my last after 10 years!!! I'm the "committee head" for Creative Activities, which really doesn't mean that much, but according to one of the outgoing steering team members, it means I do the grunt work...yeah right! When this year's steering team heard that comment, they were livid. However, the "grunt work" involved was shopping for craft supplies, organizing the supplies by the craft that they go with, and making samples of the different crafts, so I'm not upset about it at all. At this itme, there are 6 tablecloths and runners completed, supplies groups and samples made for about 6 different crafts, name badges painted and ready for decoration by the members, centerpieces (flowerpots to hold pens and such) decorated by color, and 34 bottles of "chocolate lover's milk bath" ready to be wrapped in holiday fabric to give out at the CHristmas party...yes, they are almost finished and it isn't even JULY!!!
Today I'm a little stressed because I'm waiting to here where my photo shoot is going ot be - at the newspaper office or at my house. Most likely it will be at the office since we are grey and overcast with a high probability of rain. As to what it's for...I had an hour-long interview with the write of our "CheepSkates" column - where she shares frugal tips and encourages readers to submit their own hints and tips. Because I'm a regular reader/responder to her blog, she asked if she could interview me for an upcoming article (or series of articles) that she is planning. NO PROBLEM!!!! However, the photo session might be an issue - what do I wear?? (something I made, my "uniform" of jeans and a fitted tshirt???), do I *need* to wear makeup since I really can't stand it???, hair up or hair down?? DO they need me to bring anything if I'm going to be at the studio??? YIKES!!! Ah well, nothing to do but wait until she either calls me or emails me, and that will be sometime in the next hour or so.
Other than that, I'm gearing up for summer school and summer fun with the children, trying to get work done so that the garage can finally get finished, and the routine household nonsense. But......I'm still here! Just reading more than responding at this point.

One small suggestion Larisa, so don't get mad at me. BUT when I see a few of the interviews on TV I mostly think that surly the person knew in advance they were going to be interviewed so why didn't they at least wear some make up, and a lipstick that would show up on TV.. Sounds like you will be very busy this next year! Barbara in SC

Thanks,,thought about it.....talked with writer and she checked with photographer....nixed the makeup. Ah well...he said that I was a natural, but needed to smile a bit more, which promptly made me laugh while he kept firing the camera...argh. Took almost an hour from the time I got there until we were done and I had everything bagged back up (LOTS of clothing that I have made as well as other things because they also wanted to mention my business...yay!)....she wanted pictures of me surrounded by fabric mending clothes...didn't happen that way, but did have shots of fabric piles, rotary cutter, quilting ruler, dressmaker's shears, patterns, box of bobbins, and spools of thread.....phew!
Just got off the phone with my mother and she commented that she hasn't heard me sound THIS tired in a long time...lol...told her that I got home 30 minutes before the children got home from school, which was just enough time to get everything put back where it belonged....so basically have been going non-stop since 630 this morning....oh, and I mis-read the cooking instrutions for dinner so had to come up with a substitute (somehow missed the "cook for 1 hour covered with aluminum foil" and only saw the bake for 30-35 minutes part....argh...but we will have it tomorrow night instead. Good thing I had quick back-up meals.
I think I will probably head off ot bead early tonight....unless I get too antsy and decide to go walking to burn off residual stress energy
