Long Time, No Post -- Well Not Really

My last post was on 27 Feb almost one month ago. I am on the computer daily, but I just can't manage to take the time to post. Sorry!!!! I am sure many of you with kids, jobs, husbands an spring fever know how time can just slip away from you. Don't even mention the laundry that continues to fall out of the sky. That is what I am doing at this very moment (which happens to be 5am) -- Laundry!!!

I have been busy, I joined swap-bot, lots of fun. The swaps I have joined so far have gone well. I have four more coming up in the next few weeks. If you are interested in swapping I highly recommend it. I have swapped notecards and tea so far. Upcoming are handmade cards, small cross stitch and chocolate. I am sending my handmade cards to Australia and South Africa -- how cool is that.

So far I have two stitching finishes and an update for the month but I cannot find my camera since coming home from my MIL. Took the kids to see her during Spring Break. I am still unpacking I am sure it is in one of my bags. I hate to unpack, that is the last thing I want to do when I get home, so it takes me days and days to get it done. Yuk!!

Here is something I found out last week which I thought was really "wow, what a coincidence". My BFF is on Facebook (as well as my hubby), I refuse to Facebook -- I like my privacy. Anyway, my BFF has been renewing friendships with many of our old HS classmates -- we graduated in 1980. One person who contacted her was the guy who took me to the Senior Prom. Mind you we were not dating, just two kids with no date and our mutual friends wanted us to be there so, well you can figure the rest out for yourself. Anyway, she found out that he and his wife have two children adopted from China, so now you ask what is the big deal. I have three kids adopted from China. You may be thinking "Okay" and I am thinking WOW. Hopefully, we can get together via e-mail and exchange adoption stories. I love hearing adoption stories, it is a great way to bring people together. That was my bit of excitement last week.

Anyway that is it for me, I am subbing today so off to the shower. Hopefully I will have some pictures for you later this week. Wish me luck on the search to find my camera.

See ya!!

Boy you have been very busy. I hope life is not too rushed.
I loved the story of the adoptions of your two families. I hope you enjoy meeting and sharing the stories

I think it's great that you and some old friends reaquainted and discovered such exciting similarities! Isn't it a small world??

I was thinking WOW, too! What a neat coincidence that you both adopted kids from China. :)
