I've started unfriending people on Facebook who have turned their walls and therefore mine into and never ending stream of political garbage. For the most part I believe that politics and religion are no no topics for me. I'm sick... Continue reading

I think I remember posting awhile back that my RA meds weren't working anymore and that it feels like my joints are constantly trying to kill me. There have been quite a few mornings and many more nights where I... Continue reading

Sounds like the title of a good book. It would definitely work as a great title for my memoirs. Note to self, must add that to my bucket list. I think I could sell all of maybe 5 books if... Continue reading

Once again I feel like the universe is having a great big laugh at my expense. I swear for every step forward I then have to take 3 steps back. Oh, I guess I should fill you in on what's... Continue reading

Happy Halloween to all those who celebrate. I've never quite understood why some people believe that Halloween is an evil holiday that is only celebrated by sinners and pagens. Oh well, to each their own. I for one happen to... Continue reading

Shawn and I have been toying with the decision for him to stay in the military if he makes rank this testing cycle. I'm trying really hard not to think about another 3 years of military hell. I'm so ready... Continue reading

Just a quick post to see if anyone is interested in the girls school fundraiser. Our PTA is trying to raise the money for new playground equipment. Our kids playground is sadly outdated and with school funding the way it... Continue reading

Shawn's and my 13th wedding anniversary was Aug 7th. It's crazy to look back and see that we've made it through 13 years of marriage without killing each other. I have a few people in my family laughing as they... Continue reading

I'm still hunting for a solution for my ball winder and swift dilema but for now I'm using the chairs from the old table. I'll figure something out eventually. I have time since we're holding on to the old table... Continue reading

The other day Shawn and I wandered around one of the local furniture stores debating on which dinning room table. After much hem hawing we finally decided on a table made of mango wood. It's a solid durable wood that... Continue reading

We finally found out how hard our school was hit after the failed school levy. It's not as bad as some of the others in the district but it's definitely not good. We lost the HIP HOP program for the... Continue reading

Well not much that I can post about anyway. I've been working on test knits mostly. I did finish Bree's toe up socks but that's about it. Between test knits and spring cleaning I've been pretty busy. I've been going... Continue reading

We spent weeks carefully researching dog food before we found one that our dogs loved and we felt one hundred percent comfortable feeding them. We really wanted to go organic but couldn't find one that we could afford that the... Continue reading

Holy cow another post and it hasn't even been a month. Shoot it's only been a week since the last post. Shocking really. No new yarn to post about. We're not buying anything that isn't absolutely necessary until the national... Continue reading

Things have been interesting around here to say the least. Congress still hasn't come to an agreement so it looks like my lack of faith in Congress isn't misguided. Oh well, guess what will be, will be. Can't expect me... Continue reading

Heads up, this is not a knitting related post and it does have a bit of cussing so if you don't want to listen to my political rant with cussing then please ignore this post. I'll be back in a... Continue reading

I made a post on Ravelry a few days ago about having games and cartoons on my iPad to keep my kiddo busy when we're stuck waiting at various appointments and the like. She responded back saying something like to... Continue reading

The 10-12 inches of snow we had the other day is just about gone and the weather has warmed up. Of course with that warm weather we've been having high winds but at least it's not freezing right now. The... Continue reading
