Well, before starting college classes last summer, I used to read constantly. Now I just cannot bring myself to pick up anything, unless it's a sock pattern book.
I've done the cross-stitching thing on and off for years. Last summer I finished a ginormous project that took me three years (off and on) to finish. Never again (although it does look good hanging over the fireplace).
That's about it. My children keep me busy running around all of the time.
