L'autre dead guy

Lauren goes back to France today :(
We had a mommy and Lauren morning yesterday -- we cut up old sweaters and t shirts and made new ones! I now have 2 new cool cardigans and a new t shirt. I made Lauren this dead guy -- she wanted one (I think that she felt left out because I make cute things for the doggie). I've wrapped it in a soft silk bag -- so she can use it as a little face cushion on the plane.
Lauren won't be back until the end of June -- so I won't see her for awhile, so I'm sad.... although my mom says that she'll be back in 4 short months (I'll live with this strange math....)(maybe you just count the in between months...). She's taking a whole suitcase full of groceries back with her -- lots of maple syrup, peanut butter, tahini, spices -- and tons of cookies and candies that everyone gave her for Christmas. I had to buy a new suitcase yesterday, because the last new suitcase has jammed wheels (you think maybe it's the weight???)
So later this afternoon we'll be braving the frigid weather to take the TTC (transit) to the airport. Lots of people offered rides, but we're pretty happy with our non-car, save the environment independence!

I love your happy little dead guy - I do see a bit of cheer in his face. I know it must be terribly hard for you to say so long to Lauren. I'm sending you a big comforting hug!
