Does Mending Count as "Finished Objects"?

I think that I know the answer to that one - NO! If I'm not prepared to even consider taking a picture of it, never mind posting it, it probably isn't a "finished object". Although on the bright side, having completed 4 mending projects, I can see more of my UFOs... Or maybe that's a drawback? Oh heck, who knows! At least I have more space to spread my UFOs out in. Now if you're thinking "Who mends anything anyways?" you're probably not Mom to 2 adventurous and active boys. Son the older is VERY TALENTED when it comes to ripping out seams and tearing clothing. Much as I like the look of hoodies, the tendency of boys to use the hood as a handle always means that I am stitching and re-stitching the neck seam. Sigh...

The Easter Bunny hopped his way both in and out of here yesterday. The boys had a great time and will be high on chocolate and sugar for weeks to come. We watched "The Ten Commandments" in the morning. By today's standards it looks a little bit hokey. Now here's a "social commentary" question for you: how big of a deal is Easter for most people? What are your traditions? Despite being married for more than a decade, Mr. Me and I still seem to experience friction over events like this. Yes - I'm looking for validation!!! (But no, I won't give you which side I'm on so that if a "mea culpa" is warranted on my part, I can give it.)

On a brighter note - I have my Knitters Treat Exchange treatee! I've cruised by her blog to say "Hi" and ask a couple of more questions. Her blog is very interesting, but I can't link it until after the exchange because it's a secret - ssshhhh!

House Man and I have had issues over holidays as well. Me, I'm not religious, so it feels rather hypocritical to make a big deal out of holidays that are religious in nature. What we did growing up in the UK was hardboil eggs, decorate them, then roll them down the hill. I'm sure that probably dates back to something pre-Christian! DH, on the other hand, while not that religious, comes from a family (read MIL) with lots of traditions, some rather wierd, that are supposed to be perpetuated. Ask me about our issues over Christmas, sometime, if you've got a couple of hours to spare!
