I know I’ve been away from the blog the last week or so. I’ve had a lot going on around the house. I’ve sorted through the boys clothes and separating what fits the boys into 3 piles, what will fit Little T in the future, what will fit Drama King in the future, and what doesn’t fit either of them anymore. I have about three huge boxes of clothes to put out at the yard sale. Whatever doesn’t sell, we’ll give to a friend in need. Tim and I also helped Grandma Cindy go through portions of the garage and will continue to do that each weekend until we’ve sorted the entire garage. We’re putting things into three piles, our stuff to move, their stuff to move, and stuff for the yard sale.
Another thing taking up my time is designing, web and print items. I designed a cute photo for the photo frames we’ll be sending out this winter. I’ve also been working on our annual family newsletter and trying to design some universal reusable yard signs. I just don’t have any ideas but it’s bouncing around my head so I’ll come up with something soon.
A few years ago I thought it would be an interesting feat if I could locate my half sister whom I have never met. When I set out, I never actually expected to find enough information to locate her but I did. I found an article about the untimely death of her mother. The article provided some information about relatives that might have taken her into their home. So my quest began simply with a name and ended with a reconnection of sisters.
I’m also working on the final pieces of our new blog design. I want to keep a purple primary color but need to figure out some other colors that fit perfectly. I’ve been tweaking the background color on this theme trying to find a nice light purple but haven’t quite gotten the right shade yet but I will.
