Dave and I would do about anything for our kids. We're in AZ right now letting Dave recuperate from his surgery. We got to looking at Kara's bedroom. Right now it's standard issue off white but we're about to help her transform it into a tropical oasis. Her husband Mark is working in Mexico right now and when he comes home on Friday night, he's going to be amazed at what he finds!
I used to sew a lot: quilts, clothing, you name it. Since I started writing, there's been little time for that kind of thing, but we bought fabric and I'm going to make her a couple of duvet covers and some pillows from the fabric we found. And we're about to plunge into painting. Mark will NOT believe it when he gets here.
I love surprising people. The worst thing is keeping it quiet. I'm one of those people who has to buy Christmas gifts at the last minute because I can't stand not to give the gift for very long. I can't keep my mouth shut about it. I'm always eager to see what the recipient thinks of the gift. :)
How about you? Can you keep a surprise a secret for very long? Or are you like me and have to make sure not too long of a time elapses before revealing all?
