Playing Catch Up!

Hey all I haven't forgotten about you.  I just really haven't been in the blogging mood lately.  It has become something I feel I MUST do and well that's never a good thing for me because then I just don't do it ;) 

So alot has been going on since I've posted last.  Football is ALMOST over tonight is their last game, the two different smurf teams are going to play each other at the big field.  I will take my camera to get lots of pictures!  I thought we were going to get a break from sports but Logan just signed up for wrestling last week.  Can't wait to see how this goes!  Ryan and I both had talks with him about it NOT being like the WWE and I even found youtube videos of real youth wrestling and made him watch them.  He was still excited about it.  I was really looking forward to a break until baseball starts in the spring but oh well.  At least he wants to try something, I want to give him every opprotunity to try whatever he wants.  Hopefully we will all have a better experience with wrestling than football.  While I love football, the parents had a tendency to be very cliquish and I can't stand that.

Other than that, I've been busy organizing and cleaning my house.  The house that we used to live in was the house I grew up in.  When we moved out I left some things behind and just hadn't made the time to go back and get it and go through things.  Well, last weekend my brothers house burned down so him and his family had to move into my parents old house, so I really had to get my stuff out of there.  Its really amazing the things you find!  So I've been busy throwing things away and getting bags of clothes ready to donate.  I have so many friggin clothes that I don't wear anymore or don't fit.  I REALLY need to go through them all, Ryan's included.  It seems the kids get new clothes every season but neither of us do. 

As for my brother and his family everyone is fine.  Nobody was home at the time so nobody was hurt or anything but the house was destroyed.  So they are busy getting back on their feet. 

On the knitting front I have sort of stalled out.  I was moving along on an item for the Halloween swap I'm doing on Ravelry.  I got that finished and its currently blocking (will take pics tomorrow!)   I'm planning on getting the package in the mail tomorrow. 

This is the yarn I'm sending.  One of my friends from my knitting group has opened her own Etsy shop for her hand dyed yarn and other knitting things.  She does some amazing work and I am convinced she can dye anything :)  This picture doesn't do this yarn justice...I'm not  a big fan of your typical black/orange halloween colors but what she did with this yarn...I love it.  I honestly want to keep this whole package for myself.  I'm going to have a hard time sending it out tomorrow.

That's about it for now.  I'm sure there is more I'm forgetting about but I'll remember later :)


  1. sorry to hear about your brother's house! that's crazy. glad to hear everyone was safe though and no one was home. lol. wrestling?? you poor dear. let's see how he does.. ohhh, sending you magic knitting fingers to get you back in the mood! :) I've got an excess of it!

  2. Oh no! Sorry to hear about the fire to your brother's house! Was anything salvageable? Or was all lost?

    Wow I am not a fan of Halloween colors together either - but something about that yarn! I agree!

    So now that football is over - do you find you have more free time?

    I hear you on the clothing. I dont get as much new stuff as the boys do. Only "new" stuff I've gotten recently is a few maternity tops, but that I had absolutely no choice! LOL.
