End of year update

First off, I was the super lucky recipient of an iPad, and I’m posting from it… Some things are easy, others not so much… So we’ll see.

Most recent FO is the coat rack… I’ve been complaining and complaining about how coats stack up in the shoe shelf… Finally did something about it… Completed New Year’s Eve, about 4 pm…

Now, to do something about those butt f’in ugly plastic bins…

Then there was a lot of christmas knitting… A dozen or more fingerless mitts… Doctor who sonic screwdriver (#11′s), the “can ya hear me now” ornaments… Made with audio tape and hearing aids… And something that is as I type on it’s way to my brother.

The photo link copy business is a real PITA on this iPad, so I’ll save this and come back to it.

All the mitts…

For mom, who is mostly deaf…

I was the elf at the Department’s “holiday luncheon” (downgraded from Christmas Party long ago to Holiday Party to this most recent incarnation)

We eventually did get Zuzu to lay on the other bed, but I don’t have a photo…

The girls love opening their own gifts… total chaos,

We went to friends’ house for xmas dinner, and when we got back… mischief… or really odd happenings…

And there ya have it. Between family, life, and, admittedly, facebook and Ravelry forums, the blog has been rather neglected. I’m not good with New Year’s Resolutions, so I won’t make one about posting more. I did, however, promise in a holiday note to our sponsor girl (Maria in Guatemala), that I would try to write to her more often. It’s just so hard, because I have a hard time writing about interesting stuff without pointing out the obvious differences between we have and they do not. Mostly I tell her about family and interesting natural stuff. “I’m too busy at work” and “my printer doesn’t work” just aren’t things I would even begin to share with her (and besides, they’re excuses).

Hope you had a good 2011, and that 2012 is even better!
