There is nothing better than knowing your living your life the way our creator designed for us to live.
Yes I have changed, Yes what I blog about will be different from now on.. I'm not sure what this blog will turn into, but I hope to touch peoples life's with it .
On with the Holidays.. We are Planning on going to Missouri for Christmas , so I am hoping that we have no snow this year. Last year we were snowed in and could not get out of the house :) I hope everyone enjoys family and friends during Christmas and remembers what its really about ...Stress this time of year is horrible with people trying to buy gifts for family and friends.. Personally me and Don only bought our daughter 1 gift this year and that was a Kindle Fire.The girl has everything she needs and we thought 1 gift would make her happy and keep us from over spending. We are spending 3 days with family,which she loves!! so thats another treat for her. We don't spend a ton of money on Christmas, it just does not make since too.. And our Daughter has learned that money is hard to come by and we should be thankful for what we have.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year :)

I have joined Goodreads in the hopes to start reading more. I love to read but it seems that knitting, cleaning house and cooking take all my time and reading is maybe at a hour a day. I have to admit I have downloaded thousands of books for my Ipad and Nook and finding new books for free is a high. I love free and I think all books should be free to some point. I realize the authors have to make money, but there should be a discount for the none working folks of the world. Oh wait, that's what public library's are for . I can never seem to get the books back there once I take them out.
I have found a new love for nail polish. Oh my gosh! its like painting in school all over again,lol. I'm sure if your my friend on FB you have been a couple post at my new colors. More of that to come here too. I really miss blogging and I think its time that I try and do it everyday or at least once a week.
Today is my daughters first day back to school :) can you say we are both happy at this point.Being in the house together for 3 months is not good for anyone.. she is super excited to be in middle school this year and I'm a little scared. I guess I just have to let go and let her be at some point in all this. I am to much of a control freak... well, I'm off to knit and enjoy my quite day with me and the cats.. Talk to you soon .

As you all know in the last part of October my sweet man bought me a Ipad for my Birthday . Now this thing never leaves my side and I am so happy he bought it for me with his winnings from the Casino :) I had heard there was a new Ipad coming out and thought I would not want it because I already have one. Last week the story broke and there sits this thin, light, fast new Ipad and I think I have to have it. The only down side to my Ipad is the weight, its heavy and hurts my hands to hold sometimes. If I am sitting in bed reading or playing a game it really hurts my hands , and having a ipad that is lighter would be wonderful for me, not to mention it would be lighter in my hand bag. Well as soon as the news broke about the New Ipad2 everyone put there Ipads on Ebay and Craigslist for sale. I jumped on the band wagon and mine still has not sold. I paid 825.00 for it and so I was asking 750.00 as that is still to much. I guess Apple took a 100.00 off the Ipads since the 2nd model is coming out. So everyone is telling me to ask 600 or 650.00 for it. Now Its a 64g wi-fi and 3g model, which the new iPad2 will in 830.00 I believe. I don't want to have to spend 200.00 to get the same thing i have now.. if I sale this one, I will have to get a ipad that has no 3g and no case. I mean, I will be selling all the bells and whistles and getting nothing back in return. It so sucks because we don't have the extra money for me to spend the 200.00 difference on the new Ipad.so I guess I am at a cross roads with what to do. Do I keep the old one and have everything, or sale it and not have 64g and no 3G. .. I put a listing on Craigs list http://tulsa.craigslist.org/ele/2245141534.htmlfor it at 675.00 with the 2 cases, but I really feel 700.00 is fair since its so new and coming with nice cases.. ugh.. if any of my readers would like to make me a offer for the Ipad , please leave me a comment here and we can talk. I know i want to sale it so I can get the new one so make me a offer. Please . Do you have a Ipad that you sold? Tell me how you sold it and what price it went for. Love hearing from you guys so drop me a line. Have a great week.

The bag is perfect as the wallet. I have always loved red and its always my second chose of color instead of pink. so pretty.
These are Don’s socks almost finished.
In fact as of right now all I have to do is the 2x2 ribbing and he has a new pair of socks. This pick was taken a couple days ago.
Then I received this pretty Hello Kitty compact mirror in the mail yesterday from my friend Janet AKA SuperStashMe on Raverly.. She is the sweetest friend that is always mailing me Hello Kitty items she finds in the UK. She is my email buddy and Raverly friend that I am so happy I have made. Its great to have people you can vent to and share the good times with. I didn’t have a mirror for my purse so this is perfect for me . Thank you Janet.
On the the knitting front I have decided to make a pair of Black Rose Socks. I scored this
from Raverly yesterday for 5.75 each and my local store charges 5.99. I could not get this color at my local yarn shop so I bought it yesterday and expect it here next week to start my Black rose socks. I thought it was the perfect color and price since I am a poor woman now.
I hope to find a job soon because I just am worried about bills and yarn. Not bills and food, but Yarn.. No crazy the brain works. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

So how is everyone doing? Sorry to be MIA but I have been under the weather. This past Monday my right big toe was all swollen and I could not walk on my foot. I was in so much pain that Superman took me to the family doctor. After waiting like 2 hours I was finally called back and the doctor asked me a ton of questions, looked at my foot for like a minute and said that I had Gout. Really, Gout… he wrote me a script , took blood and said the test results would be back the next day. He wanted to stick a big needle in my foot to test for gout and I flat out refused that offer! I had no doubt this guy had no clue what the hell he was taking about and I would just go home and suffer. Well, that’s just what happened. I took this medicine he gave me and it said right on the bottle, “take until pain is relieved or you have nausea,vomiting or diarrhea. Right off I didn’t want to take the meds because I didn’t want to be sick on top of having my foot feel like it was broke, but I took it anyway. The next day after taking this stuff I was so sick the whole day with every symptom that was on that bottle!!! I was so made I could not stand it. Finally the doctor called and said my test result said I don’t have Gout!! the damn doctor wants me to come back in to take x-rays of my foot now! really??? you should have done that the first time I was there you moron. so now I am able to walk on it so I’m not going back. I think I just jammed it cleaning house and that’s that. Its really messed up my work outs and diet for sure.. I'm all out of whack. The the moral of the story is this. If you have a gut feeling that you know whats wrong , your prob right.. Doctors are just stupid and its really hard to find a good one. I’m just glad my foot is not broke.

On the knitting front I am working on a pair of socks for Don. There were to be for me but they ended up way to big for my foot. He is pretty super excited about them.
The yarn I am using for these socks is Happy Feet and the color way is #28
Last knit I went to my local knit groups monthly k1p2 party and saw one of the ladies making some amazing fingerless mitts in bright pink and blue!! let me just say I almost didn’t take them off . So I will be making them very soon. The pattern which you can get free on Raverly is called the Jasper Mitts http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jaspers-fingerless-mittens
On the last bit of news, I was told Wednesday from my employer that my job will be ending this Sunday, which is today. They had a massive layoff and I happen to be one of the lucky ones to get axed. I’m not very happy about it,but I guess I will try and draw unemployment till I can find a day job that will fit around my family’s schedule.
On The Blackberry front.. I read on BGR http://www.bgr.com/2011/01/14/rims-2011-blackberry-lineup/ that there are 3 new blackberry’s coming out!! The Storm 3 and a new Bold with the form factor of the original bold 9000.. I am so excited about both of these I can’t stand it. take a look at the link because there are pictures. I guess all the hype over Verizon getting the Iphone 4 has everyone wanting to ditch Blackberry all together. I know a lot of my friends have gone to Iphones or Androids.
Hope everyone has a great week and enjoys this post..
