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..:)
