Hi there. My name is CMerie and I used to blog here. I made a New Years Resolution to blog twice a week. I failed before I even started. You know how it is, you don't blog, and don't blog and pretty soon it's hard to blog. You feel as if you have to update every little thing that happened, (because it's important!) and then you get so far behind you feel you'll never catch up. So consider this a catch up post and an attempt to get back in the blogging saddle. Skip it if you want. Or don't.
I had a little inspiration (driven largely by a Joann's gift card) to create a case of some sort to house this particular project and all the tools needed for it. My thought was this would inspire me to work on the project itself. And that reasoning (while a little....strange) has actually seemed to help.

|And when I'm not working on the project, it folds up and velcros shut to keep out curious little hands.|
Because of this little case, I've worked on my project more in the past few weeks than I have in the past few months. Success!
On to other bits of randomness.
Recently we signed Fritter up for karate, and he has really been doing well. This week he tested for his orange belt. Hi-ya!
Ladybug and Sunflower are taking a ballet/tap class together. It is my biased opinion that nothing is cuter than little girls in tutus.
Fritter's Blue Knight's Club has been making a Mass kit this year, and so my children had the inspiration to play Mass. He used the past week's Magnifikid as his missal. I love it when this kind of stuff happens without my bidding.

Unfortunately we only manage to stay for a very short time. My poor dear husband had succumbed to the flu and then Fritter came down with it too. They were dropping like flies all around me and we needed to rush to get home so we could hunker down for the duration.
