My sister has come and gone. She's wonderful to have around...she's a lot of fun, makes herself useful, and always has interesting things to talk about. I like where I live, but I dislike being so far away from my family :(.
I have a few more touches to add to the boys' bedroom before I post any photos. We painted it in pretty quick time, but progress was slowed down due to a sickie boy who needed to stay home instead of going to IKEA. Ah well...
But anyway, I wanted to pop by to tell you about a great discovery. I needed a new pair of fabric scissors--my good ones always seem to be messed up by people who quick grab whatever scissors are nearby to cut cardboard, paper, string, you-name-it. So, when I was at my grocery store I picked these up for around ten dollars. How can a person go wrong when the scissors claim to be able to cut through 18 layers of denim? Right? Check this out:
24 layers of fabric. No sweat.
