Martha Stewart I am not…
It’s about to be another one of those crazy/wonderful two weeks in which blogging will probably languish down somewhere near the bottom of my to-do list.
Family is coming into town, friends are coming into town.
Will’s first birthday is coming up.
I’m pulling an absurd amount of dried strawberry pulp out of the carpeting in our (rental!) apartment and cleaning up dust bunnies.
Chris’ sister is leaving for Delhi on Sunday.
We need to eat a lot of Vietnamese/Chinese/crabs before Sunday.
Stupid Pinterest inspired me to take up sewing. I measure six times, cut once, pin my totally-not-even-close-to-straight-edged pieces together, mess up the directions three times, curse like a sailor and end up with rhombus-shaped cosmetic bags that, on Pinterest, look suspiciously, perfectly square. It’s fun!
Oh and it seems like we’re in the process of buying everything ever sold at Target or on the internet. Because who doesn’t do that one month before they leave the country?
This week I’m doing some non-blog writing. Next week I’m doing an “All Things Baby” mini, mini-series. It’s mini in that it’s only one week long and also in that the posts themselves will probably be pretty mini. I’ve got all sorts of drafts that I’ve written over the last year, about Will, about babies, about baby gear, and I thought I’d take the best of the short ones and post them all in the week leading up to Will’s birthday.
Never fear though for those of you who would rather not read about babies. After Will’s birthday we’ve only got 2.5 weeks until we leave (finally!) for New Delhi…
What are you up to this week? Do you sew? What’s the secret to cutting right angles and straight lines?
