Everyone around me has been getting sick and I hadn't. Until Friday. Then it was BAD. I hadn't gotten the flu that bad for years, but luckily my husband was home on Friday for President's Day weekend so I stayed in bed the entire day while he took care of our little ones.
I did have staying in bed stuff to do in between dozing off and on all day.
1. I frogged my silk'n wool scarf and chose a different stitch pattern and got through 1 skein. (Though I did frog it again because I didn't like how wide it was. And then I resized it and have almost gotten through 3 skeins.)
2. I started planning in earnest our spring break trip.
I don't know if I'd mentioned before, but we're going to Iowa for 16-ish days towards the end of March and the beginning of April. We were going to fly, but since we just bought the car, we're going to drive it. It should be interesting with our 2 little ones, but I think if we try to stay positive and make the best of it, it should be fun, or at least interesting. Famous last words, huh. The good thing is, both of them are pretty used to 2-3 hour car trips so with frequent stops I hope the don't get too weary.
We're going to take Route 66 to Oklahoma City and then shoot up through Kansas and then a bit of Nebraska up to the western part of Iowa where my husband's family lives. We've got that part of the trip decided upon, but now we're sort of stuck on the coming back part. We're coming back through South Dakota and then Wyoming, down through Utah, Nevada and then back to California, but I've been trying to figure out how long we'll be in South Dakota since there's a lot of sights I want to see, and then where we'll be spending the night the rest of the trip back.
3. I started planning my mom's birthday gift. I think I'm going to embroider some of the Vogart Mexican transfers that I'd bought a while back onto something and then frame it. Hopefully she'll like it, and if not, it'll at least work with the theme of my sister's baby shower when we get back in April and they can use it as decoration.
4. I also spent some time working on some other little dolls, but haven't been too inspired to make it a top priority. I need to get at least the one done that my little boy keeps asking for, hopefully sometime this week I'll be able to finish that.
Okay, this ended up being longer than I intended, but I needed to update, so hopefully next time I write, I'll be all better. :)
