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.

Hey Suzanne! I am glad you are back blogging. You have been missed. We have missed you in Sunday school although I am happy to read about what has been going on in your life. I pray that the vertigo goes away soon and that you are feeling better. Have a great weekend in Nashville and have a safe drive. Hope to see you soon!

Sorry to hear about the inner ear issue....NO FUN!!

I know you are glad to get the house organized and I mirror your sentiments exactly on the yarn stash!! Funny how something comes along and changes our priorities isn't it?

Looking forward to seeing you tonight!!!
