I have been trying to keep up with your blogs (which I enjoy very much), but some days, well........... My DD has decided to keep us (for now) as her parents, so after several months of not seeing DD and 18 mo. old DGD, we are again Mom & Dad, and Gramma & Grandpa. I've changed my profile pic to one of Miss Piper McGee wearing my DH's family heirloom glasses, upside down. So strange after not being able to "grandparent" Piper, we are now having her for three out of four weekends. Great but at first it made me think of running the Boston Marathon without any training! She is breaking us in tho, and we love it! My DD has some serious mental health diagnoses, leading to a life full of challenges, changes and drama. I have finally taken steps to find myself a therapist, so perhaps I will make it after all!
My poor Sewing Room has a tick layer of undisturbed (but very disturbing) dust on it and I miss it very much. My DH and I seem to be eternally optimistic tho, and keep planning to catch up "when things calm down". I do have a project I'm working on by hand, a smocked bishop dress for miss McGee for Easter. Also trying to make a coat and bonnet for her. Piper does not hold still long enough for me to accurately measure her, so I'm taking a risk, size wise. Funny, but I just don't remember my kids being so , hmmm, shall we say, energetic as Piper?
