Bad Blogger

Ok, so lately I have sucked at the blogging thing. Just a quick update and I promise to post more later.

  • The Nashville trip was awesome. (I actually have pictures I'll post later)
  • I'm doing fairly well on not buying yarn (I didn't say I would totally stop)
  • My family's toxic person is acting a butt again (really is that such a surprise???)
  • My friend Jill could use some serious lovin'
  • I started on a tank with the new Noro Yarn I bought last week (It was the only yarn I bought last week, so that is better than usual)
  • I still haven't finished my Monkey socks for the DkKnits KAL
  • I've been on a kick of crocheting "warshrags" - what is that all about, I don't crochet.

I promise I'll add more details later, but I didn't want everyone (ahem....Jessie) thinking I was under a rock somewhere. Seriously, Thanks to everyone who has expressed concerned over me not blogging much lately and checking on me. It really does mean a lot to me that people are concerned about me. Love Ya'll!!!!

I'm still here......barely

Wow, it has been a really long time since I posted. For my few devoted readers....Sorry.

There has been a lot going on here. We rearranged the little boy's room and moved the computer and computer armoire out of his room and into the dining room. I've also been going through every box and drawer in my room and cleaning out. My sister and nephew have now lived with me for over 3 years now on what was supposed to be a temporary adjustment. I'm fine with the fact that they still are here, but with all of us in this house, we just have too much stuff and it is time for some of it to GO!! I'm done with all the clutter and it taking forever to clean the house. This process will most likely consume my weekends for the next month, but I know it will be worth it in the long run. Which brings me to my yarn stash. What was I thinking folks?!?!?!? I know it is pretty and everything, but it seems to be multiplying like rabbits. Must stop buying and start knitting. Now those of you who know me, know that this doesn't mean I will completely stop buying yarn that speaks to me, but it is now going to have to speak very loudly. I've stopped all of my clubs except for one and that is because it is prepaid (and it is nice to have at least one surprise each month). There is even the remote possibility that I may have a stash sale, but I'm not committing to anything just yet.

Then there has been the Vertigo that has been plaguing me for the last 3 days. I'm ready for the room to quit spinning. Needless to say since I'm on the computer, it is has gotten much better than it was yesterday, but I still feel like I've had a little too much to drink. No fun what so ever. I went to the Doctor and he prescribed my an antibiotic to go with my Antivert (motion sickness pills) thinking I have a sinus infection or slight inner ear infections.

This weekend I'm supposed to drive to Nashville for my college roommate's 40th birthday. She has no idea that myself and another of our sorority sisters are coming (at least she didn't know last week when I talked to her mother). I'm really looking forward to seeing her and getting to celebrate this milestone birthday with a little girl time.

Believe it or not, there has been a little knitting going on. I'm almost done with my no purl monkeys for the DkKnits KAL. I'm also working on the Lotus Blossom Tank (aka how many times can I screw this lace pattern up tank) and a pair of plain vanilla socks which are all my head can handle at the moment.

Sorry to be away so long and I promise to try to upload pictures next time.
