Time for change

Life is a grand journey leading to the unknown..Well it seems that way for my life at this point and time anyway.Me and my family have once again moved! We have moved to the same to town that my mom and dad live in.We had to get away from the city and crime and the high rental costs. we were paying 900.00 a month for our home and now we are paying 375.00! can you believe it... this is only a 2 bedroom and needs some work but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. You can hear the birds chirping in the mornings and the locus keeping the beat at night, and there is even a train that goes by the I think once we get moved in it will all be for the best. This little town is a little like stepping back in time because they really don't have a lot , not even a Quick Trip!!!!.. No coffee shops, no Internet cafes... boy, what will I do.. Oh, and no yarn shops.. Tulsa is only 45 minutes from here,so I will be going there I am sure for my yarn and lunch with my friends. It will really be nice being here so close to my mom and dad.I guess there is always that point and time when we have to think about our parents getting older and needing more of our time and parents are still running around and doing a lot of there own daily fun stuff, but I do know that spending time with them now will give me a lot of good memories when they are gone.
I still have not been able to update my podcast and feel so lost in my knitting world. It has been about 2 months or more since I have heard any new episodes and it is making me crazy!!!I feel like I am missing out on all the good and new products and designs. I am having any luck with my trekking socks once again. I seem to be having problems with the decrease in the heel , the socks come out way to big in the heel and I end up having to frog back and start again.. I think I need to just sit down with a good friend and figure out what my sock malfunction Since we have moved and will be spending a lot less on rent and living cost, I will try and find a part time job, that will leave me a lot of time for family and knitting!!! maybe I will finish a project for once this year.. lord, a whole year and no finished products! that is just nuts... maybe I will pick up baking once again too.. I love to cook and bake, of coarse sugar is a no-no in our house so I cook sweets with applesauce or other fillers of natural sweetness.. I do hope all my Internet friends are doing well and leave me comments here so i know I am not talking to myself..:)

October is finally here : )

Hello ,
The Picure is of Me and my boyfriend , my 2 sons and our daughter.. don't I have a Beautiful family. this pic was taken last summer.

Well lets see were to start. It has been a while since my last post as you can guess I am still without internet access at home and have to run around looking for a friends pc or the public library to do my hand I am still looking for a new job and hoping that it won't be long before a have a few phone calls. It is really hard to find a got this days that works with my family schedule and being close to home,but I am sure within in the next couple of weeks I will have something in the way of work.

I did pick up my Trekking sock in #100 and started to work on it for the past couple of days, I happend to be almost finished with it and hope to have it done in another day or so. Right now I am at my mom and dads out of town helping them unpack thier new home, mind you they moved over a month ago and I just learned that the house was not unpacked. So my mom called me and asked if I would come over and help out since I am not at least this will keep my mind of everything. I have taken dads laptop over today and spent most of the morning on Raverly!!! lord do I miss it.. I have added a few new friends and selected a few new groups, in the hopes that I will be online soon and able to chat and blog away once again. Not being able to blog,read or search the internet is like the worst punishment I have ever had... this has made me realize that I need to invest in buying a laptop!!!! this way I could at least get internet access via coffee shops and such.

on the knitting front I am having stash withdrawls because I have not bought any stash in over 2 months if not longer!!!!!!!!!!!! Yarn is calling to me, buy me, buy me PLEASE..... but first I have to have a job to buy yarn, I do have to eat and have air and water :), or do I..... I hope someone out there is still looking at my blog and haveing fun with it... lord knows I love reading all the blogs in blogger land.. I hope everyone enjoys the month of October...
