I'm sorry. I'm lame. I really do feel like I have good stuff to blog about- but am tired of the computer when I get home from work.

Ideas to explore later:

-awesome new apartment stuff
-we might have a social life?
-upcoming New York trip
-thoughts on Boston
-Chicago trip
-children? ha! not for a long time.

to sew

Today I learned how to thread a sewing machine (thanks to youtube) and stitched a few stitches. Sometimes the result was a glob of thread coming from the bottom (any idea why?), but for the most part I think I can handle it.  I think I need a few more practice rounds before I can hem a curtain. I feel like such a housewife... but you know I do have a job and sewing seems so useful, and possibly even fun. So we'll see. I also have a scheme planned of joining a sewing class and meeting some much needed friends.  At least the machine is no longer sitting around, and now when I look at it, it won't feel like another failed project.
