Yeh, my oldest daughter's been having to deal with a virus going through their family all last week. Today's her first time out in a long time. They had a Christmas party tonight they went to without the kids. Yeah for her! I hate hearing about anyone sick during any holiday, especially now.
I'm glad you told me about it being slow posting. I thought maybe it's my computer and not just eBay's doings about the slow over there thing. lol
adding... about Mom, she said she has a 20s dress that was her Mom's when she was a teenager. She took it apart at the waist but it can easily be reattached and I can have it to fix it and sell if I want. It's black crushed velvet. Can't wait to see it. I'll be nervous about fixing it and may just have it professionally done instead of tackling it myself.
I sure am rambling on. lol
