i've been teaching mod*tot how to sew. she draws dolly dress designs, then picks out fabrics from my colorful fabric stash + we cut the fabric together with scissors (normally, i use a rotary cutter, but it's too sharp to practice with). then we pin the pieces together + i show her all the settings + parts of the sewing machine + we sew the dresses + try them on the dollies. it was also fun to show her little tricks for handsewing, like threading a needle + making a knot. they're things i do automatically + seem simple, but take a lot of dexterity + look like magic tricks to her.

mod*mom review: hewlett packard touchsmart pc is phenomenal!
hp sent me a loaner unit to try out for a month + we just set it up + LOVE it!
i can already tell we're going to have to buy one. it's got an amazing picture, sound, dvd burner, webcam, flat screen, wireless keyboard + mouse, superfast response time (i'm on my old pc because my family is hogging it).
here's my description of it so far... a computer screen that's okay for your kids to write on? get in touch with technology + keep your family connected, organized + entertained with the hp touchsmart pc. touch the screen to get instant access to the internet, television, music, movies, photos, family schedules + information on your pc. it’s easy enough for the whole family to use. manage your family’s schedule by updating calendar events + creating your choice of voice, written or typed messages. the 19" flat panel monitor space-saving all-in-one design looks amazing in any décor, especially mod!
($1,699 after rebate

vital monitoring system :: blood pressure, pulse + temperature cuff
"effortlessly take + record a patient's vital signs"

patient swipes temperature sensor across forehead, which activates blood pressure + pulse sensor inside monitor next to wrist. data is sent wirelessly to a paperless charting system that records + logs patient's vital signs.

these cuffs would be in my dream doctor's offices + first aid kit at home.

time to scope out, scan + squeeze your lemons for lumps + signs of breast cancer. i'm off to the oncology office for a clinical exam + blood test.
even though i've been having a lot of fun this past week + weekend, i'm having an extra hard time concentrating + i think it's partly because of this exam. i'll be relieved when it's done. it's been 1 year since my mastectomy + underarm surgery + 7 months since my last radiation + chemotherapy. my arm is still a mess + i'm out of shape, but my heart is getting stronger + i'm excited about the future. well, here i go to the chemo office.
