Spring Break

Spring Break has begun! The kids didn't have school today and have all of next week off. We are just planning on hanging around the house. The teen has a few seasons of House and some video games to conquer. The tween needs to clean his room but instead he is spending a lot of time outdoors enjoying the spring weather. The little one just wants to hang out with someone and read books and watch movies. We just returned from a family trip to the library and several DVDs were checked out. All of the regular shows I like are on break right now (except reality ones) so I'll fill the time I would spend on them with watching some movies. Last night I watched Julie & Julia, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Back when it came out I had several people ask if I had seen it because it's a movie about blogging. I highly recommend it!

I spent some time sewing today. I have several more pillowcase doll dresses stitched up. I just need to add ribbon and get photos of them. I'll might add them to my Etsy shop this weekend. I've been having some troubles with my sewing machine so I might need to reinforce some seams first. I also worked on some Cool-Ties to donate to the military. They will be part of a charity basket for an upcoming auction. I have 50 cut & edges serged. My regular machine seems to skip a stitch from time to time, which I need to fix before I finish stitching these up. If there are any loose stitches then the water crystals will leak out, which would be a huge mess!

Other plans for spring break include blog work, organizing the garage, taking the kids to the children's museum with friends, enjoying the outdoors, and hopefully some cleaning & straightening of parts of the house.

Any of you on spring break? What are your plans?
