to count behind during hide and seek...

The UFO class from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I'm being totally lazy this morning. I think I'm exhausted from the lack of sleep the night before. And travel days can be crazy even though you don't really seem to be doing anything.

I have to tell you about the plane ride. I get a check-in notification 24 hours in advance, but often don't get a chance to check in right away. DH tells me that I NEED to do it immediately as that is why I keep getting in a middle seat. Yep - in the middle seat again. Not a big deal. It's ...
