Knitting addict

It has now become a weekend ritual to go and retreat to the knitting store to get lots of knitting done, meet interesting people, and drink cappacinnos (spelling??). It is ever so relaxing and nice to look forward to.

Musing on the gas prices......I personally think the great gas prices will all disappear after November 7th, the election, as the gas prices are reflecting well on the Republicans so.......once the oil prices get their politicians in office this will all go sour. THat is my pessimistic view for the weekend.

Charley and I commucicated more than we ever had in making a major decision last night over a bowl of Ritters ice cream. The tough part is following through. Help!!!!!!!

Time to go throw dinner together so that is all for today's thrilling post.

It has been since July since I have posted anything. The last few days have been great. My dh has finally realized he needs to help the kids with their upper level math and being accountable to getting their schoolwork done. This is fantastic. I don't feel so exhausted and overwhelmed and it is a relief. I also quit my Sunday School responsibilities last night which also brings a lot of relief from trying to make everything 'right' for everyone.

Since July, we have experienced 100 degree fairweek, dh trimmed out two rooms of the old farm house, Anna painted the stairs and we ripped the wall paper off. Anna also painted the front porch which was long overdue. I painted the back room and Charley sanded and finished the dining room floor. Phew, that isn't even everything that occurred in August.

In September we started school and so far so good, we may be a little behind but things are moving along. The baby keeps me up at night but not as much the last few days which is a relief as I was getting very sleep deprived. I discovered a knitting store which I love where I can go to retreat and spend time quietly with other knitters on the weekend.

We shall see how long it is untill I post again.......7 weeks untill baby.
