It turns out I am still alive and the house is now spider free. Well, mostly spider free.
Anyway,while I was gone, I had a guest post go up at Or So She Says about beginning tips for making birthday cakes. Today I have another post there on making mini tote bags. I even have a nifty new button for my side bar! Head on over and enjoy!
The great news is that we still have three whole weeks of summer left to enjoy before school starts. The sad news is that when you add in the doctor appointments, school shopping, dentist appointments, and fixing mixed up internal clocks, I'm left with about 2 hours of summer left to enjoy before school starts.
I thought I'd take a minute to let everyone know how my parents are doing after their motorcycle accident a few months ago. I've appreciated all the emails and inquiries about their recovery, but wanted to wait till I saw them with my very own eyeballs before I said anything. They are doing well. Their road rash is almost entirely gone (SEE MY MOM'S ARM IN RIGHT OF PICTURE) and the bones are healing nicely. My dad lost a bit of weight through it all and has to check his oxygen levels often, but he is still telling silly puns and has the same teasing smile. His wrist will never be the same (CAN YOU SEE THE CAST HE HAS ON NOW?), especially since they x-rayed it wrong and let him leave the hospital without a much needed cast.
They do, however, tire much more easily than I've ever seen. Some things broken in an accident like that don't ever heal perfectly. I'm just glad they're here to tire!
