Tagged ny Kristi...

The rules are...A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
B. Tag seven people to do the same.
C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it".

1. I am a grouch in the morning, I am not a morning person I am rather nocturnal.

2. I will not cook any meal in my kitchen if the dishes aren't done and the counters clean. It has to be clean. I'm a bit of a clean freak. Agreed.. Me To.. :) I detest mess and clutter. Makes me nuts.

3. I always have to sleep with a blanket over me...even in the summer when its hot. I feel protected :) Too funny me too.. I must be related to my Kristi.. :)

4. I do not have many close friends, I have major trust issues and I am sometimes very insecure about myself. I try not let people get to close so I cannot be hurt, but I am working on that, I have met some wonderful people at my church and I love that I am learning to love myself albeit slowly.

5. I do lots of Voulenter work in my community and for my Children.

6. I am committed to make a difference in the issues I feel are important and I voice my opinion lots..

7. I talk allot and feel like I have lots to share all the time.

I am tagging anyone who wants to play..

Knitting Update..

I wanted to give a quick knitting update.. I have finished the Soap on a rope for Shawn.. It turned out really cute, If time permits I am going to make one for each of my brother in laws for Christmas.. Also I am working hard on my own pattern for a small bag that will also be a gift. I thought I was going to be able to take the sock class but as it sits right now I am going to be unable to attend. One of my baggers seems to think its funny to take whole weeks off at a time and let me at the very last min. I am kinda upset but what can I do, I am going to have to figure this one out on my own I am afraid. I have to run I am off to work but wanted to give a quick update.
Until Next time..

Time Out !!

Whew, I am taking time out today to blog, I seem to be getting busy as of late catching up on the things I had to miss when I was so sick. I have more laundry than I know what to do with and it really sucks, My poor house was seriously neglected while I was under the weather. The kitchen alone has taken me a full day to return it back to normal, I have to have a clean house it makes me insane to have dust, junk and clutter, or anything really out of its place. I think I may have a cleaning disorder that no in my house has but me. The walls need a good scrubbing and my pantry needs attention as I only work on those every 3 months or so. I made it to the yarn store, I got a wonderful gift card from my Mom to a place called Black Sheep Wool Co, In Salt Lake, What an amazing store, I wanted to buy all the wonderful and expensive yarns but at las I only had 40 dollars and 20 in cash to spend but I got 5 skeins of some yummie yarn, 4 skeins of a silk cotton blend and 1 skien of some sock yarn for a pair of knitted socks for my nephew Benjamin for Christmas.. I also got the needles to make the socks, the ones I have dreaming about for 4 months now.. I am the proud owner of them. I cannot wait to start on the socks. I thought Ben has the smallest feet of anyone I know right now so he gets to be the chosen first for a pair, Start small make sure I can do it and then up ward and on ward. I am still busy putting together my wonderful swap packages for my lucky pal's. I just finished the Tea Swap and I am currently in the Christmas Around the World and Coffee Knitters swap. Halloween is coming and I personally don't know if I want to celebrate Halloween......and I know all 3 of my kids love God with all their heart but Halloween, it sometimes seems evil!!! They just like to have some innocent fun on Halloween night. I personally believe this is something for personal conviction! I am not sure what the out come is going to be this year but I need to continue to pray about it. My church is offering some alternatives this year and that would be to collect candy and play games and fellowship and maybe watch a Christian based movie at the church. My Husband and I think this might be a good thing for all of us this year. we are trying to stay away from things that might contradict the values we are setting in our home. I best be off I have so much to do and very little time as I have to work tonight.. Argggg.
Until Next Time..

I never ever thought I was going to feel better, But today i woke up and felt pretty nifty. I have been so super sick and so has my Hubby, Its been a hard three weeks but I am happy to report that I am on the mend. I had had allot of help from people and I never knew that people could be so wonderful I have under estimated so much in my life. I feel truly blessed to have amazing people in my life. My family rocks and I am so glad that they are mine. I did get my tea box mailed off I have not heard if she liked what I have sent but I hope she loved all of it. I got my package while I was sick and it made me so happy. I got some awesome recycled Yarn that is 100 % cotton and I love it. I have not yet chosen what I plan to make with it but I know that I love this yummie yarn. I also got some Tea that is Amazing and two boxes of tea cookies that are yummie, I now have my own tea cup and saucer from my awesome tea swap pal, she made me a darling dishcloth and I am the new proud owner of my first ever honey thing, I forgot what they are called but it was a totally awesome experience.

Still Under the Weather and it gets worse.

Hi.. So last week I posted that I had an ugly cold beast. I now have what has gone from A cold or so I thought to full pneumonia. I am sick as ever, In fact I must admit that I have never been so sick in all my life. I went to the doc yesterday and had the x ray done he gave me a breathing treatment and some prescriptions for some super expensive medication, Now I have not been able to sleep in days so I am delirious and feel like im on another planet. The doctor is having some more medicine and neutralizer type thing a ma jig delivered to my home to try and help me breathe better and keep me out of the hospital. I have no desire to be in the hospital at all. I am very stubborn and also I know I wont sleep there either so whats the point of me being there. My parents coming to see me. My hubby came home from work and is going to be with me for the next few days. I have my church family bringing me dinner for the next few nights, I think I have lots of people that will be helping me though all this. I have really never been so sick in my life and I hope to feeling better soon. My birds are happily singing to me today, I think they know momma is sick and are trying to help in their own way. I best be getting my butt back in bed. Until next time...
