I am alive. We had an interesting event on July 6. We got struck by lighting. Not just struck, but like hit the tree in front of your house and blow grass and mud all over our car and knock stuff off of the walls and blow out our Direct tv and obliterate my computer struck. But now, I have a new Dell Studio Laptop in Spring Green. I have lots to update... Liam's first birthday, and many new sewing endeavors. I suppose I will be back, I have so much to catch up on.
