Dear Friends and Family,
Please excuse my absence over past month, but, you see, I been very busy reacquainting myself with the family room sofa. It is a nice sofa and I have no major complaints. Sure the leather can be a bit cold on occasion and the arms are a bit high for optimum head resting, but it passed the most important test, it was there for me - the human blob. So, when you didn't see me at a school, the grocery store, Christmas shopping, or at the post office, you can be sure I was warming the sofa. In addition to the nausea and, occasional vomiting, and killer headaches that come with being pregnant, I have had the mother of all colds - it has been a month and I am still coughing. Gotta love winter in Michigan.

The first of which is to exploit, I mean, recruit the children. They practically work for nothing - just a handful of coins for the piggy bank and they're happy campers. The second thing I learned, many socks make light work. Here is how it worked:
Put on socks from the Northwest international kit (any socks will do).
