New Stuff

First- Wyatt's head is healing nicely. The glue is still there but it is slowly peeling off. I don't know if he will have any kind of scar but he seems to think it will be cool if he does.

Second- I love fabric stores. I have always loved then, but San Antonio really didn't have my kind of store. I called them *country bumpkin* stores. All super Little House On The Prairie kinda flowery. Not my kind of thing. I love big bold prints and lots of color. So all in all shopping in the stores there was not my kinda thing. So online I would go. Fun, but not the instant gratification that going to a shop is. I still check my favorite online shop a lot . But I love to go into this shop now that I am back home. I think I could live there, or at the very least spend gobs of money. When I walked in last week they had the entire line of the super wonderful Wonderland prints. I was a good girl and I didn't get the whole thing. I wanted to, but I didn't. Now I have to decide what to do with it. Other then a decoration.

Third- I got me a few new toys. A laptop. I don't have room for my desk top out in the main parts of the house. So it has been set up back in my room. When I am back there I cannot hear what shenanigans my very mischievous boys are into. And let me tell you they can make some trouble. So I have not been spending the time I like to with my virtual buddies. Makes me sad. So I got me a new toy. It has taken me a few days and one funny trip back to the store to get it so I know kinda what I am doing. But now I am here and feeling good. But I am telling you the wireless mouse thing was a stumper. The magical Geek Squad dude was wonderful with his cool firework hair and fixed it with a touch of his magical hands. Or proved that technology is not really my thing.
I also got an ipod-iphone music dock thing. I did get that to work without any assistance. So I guess I am not totally inept. Because we all know how hard it is to plug something in. But because I have mastered that skill all went well.
then I got some strange little device that is called a thumb drive. I wanted to move all my pictures from the one computer to the new one. I wanted one shaped like a thumb. Not something they have in normal stores. So I got a boring black stick like thing. So me being me went online when I got home and found a thumb shaped thumb drive on ebay. Happy me. I won and soon I will have the wonderful contraption. What great fun that will be.

Last of all. I did a personal swap with the wonderful and super amazing LauraJ. She sent me this wonderful little quilt. I am so in love with it. Green being my new obsession. It is beautiful. She also sent that super cute dotty bowl and a calender that will remain photo less because it is of questionable content. Cracks is all I will say. Made me laugh. Some chocolate was also included and disappeared really fast as soon as Lucas saw it. Last of all some pencil cases for the kids. They were very quickly filled with various objects. Thank you Laura, your package will be flying your way tomorrow.

It is so hard to get back to the computer during the day. Before our move back to Cali the computer was set up with my sewing stuff in the dining room that I had taken over as my sewing room. Here in the new place of living there is no room for that. So it is tucked back in my bedroom far away from my very mischievous boys. So all in all not much time is spent on the computer. Sad, I miss my virtual friends. But very soon I will be able to get me a laptop and all will be right in my little world.

I have been getting a bit of sewing done. Bags and quilts. Happy me.
Look what Mr. W did to his head. Who knew sewing tables could be so dangerous.

A trip to urgent care, some glue and a $600 bill later he is all fixed and I am wishing that there wasn't a 3 month period with no insurance.

Life is Crazy

Sorry it has been so long. So many thing have happened I don't know were to start. We are back in California, happy me! It all happened so fast it kinda left me spinning. But after a 4 day drive and a nice stop at the biggest hole in the world, AKA. the Grand Canyon, we are home. And it feels like home. Sorry Texas people but that place never felt right. I am a Calli girl.

Madelyn has started her new school and is doing well, making friends and wrapping people around her finger as always. Wyatt, who always seems to have a hard time adjusting to things is doing great and Lucas just loves having more people around to charm.

I was fast to get a sewing area set up but the other unpacking is slow going.
