i've had such a nice week, so many good things happening all around me:
:: mae is suddenly starting to get into a sleep pattern, happy to have naps and settling down quickly the one or two times she wakes up at night (probably jinxed it now...)
:: we finally found a new (used) car for me, after four or five months of looking. toyota camry wagons are hard to come by in this baby boom but i gots me my champagne model sitting in the driveway. we now have two stationwagons. oh my.
:: a post office box finally came available for me at our local post office. i've been on a waiting list for a year and had pretty much given up hope. but now, you can send me whatever magical goodness your little heart desires at po box 155, kingsville, vic 3012 and i can stop worrying about sending our home address all over the globe.
:: i finished a big quilt top and backing for our new couch quilt last night. the fabric has been sitting in my WIP box since before christmas and i planned to baste it at sewjourn, where i will hopefully have the room i don't have here. can't wait to get to the quilting, i'm going to try something a bit different (for me) on this one.
:: and the biggest, most exciting news: i finally booked our flights to canada for july/august this year! i'm so glad to have this done and settled, it's been on my mind for months. i got a GREAT deal through quantas, so cheap that i booked mae her own seat so that we can all be a bit more comfortable on our FIFTEEN HOUR flight to los angeles. i'd be lying if i didn't say i am totally worried about how she is going to handle the flight but at least there are two of us and we have a bit of room. can't wait to see my family!
