Since I don't have much to blog about, I thought I'd post a picture of an old pair of socks I knit for my husband. (Yeah, my camera works whenever I could care less... But whenever I really *want* it to.... Grrr!!) I knit these a long time ago. Must have been Pre-Digital camera days for me, because I'm pretty sure I don't have a picture of these. Unless it was just so long ago, I forgot?.. He never wears these socks. (I am knitting him a second pair, which I have posted about here a couple posts back.) I hope he'll start wearing them both. He said 'It's never cold enough.' I told him, 'Nice try. I knit you the first pair when we lived in Michigan or Colorado, and you didn't wear them there, either....'
I know I didn't post it here yet, but we are going to be getting rid of our internet soon. For a few different reasons (it's my husband's idea, not mine...): It's a big time waster (especially for me!), and a distraction (especially when I am supposed to be doing homeschooling with the kids right now...); for financial reasons, and other reasons... I will probably have to go up to the library every once in a while to check out all my sites: Ravelry, Crochetville, Crochetmania, and all my blog friends' blog updates :) .... It just won't be the same, but.... Maybe we have gotten too used to it, and need to step back for a while. What did I do in Pre-Internet days? I remember cleaning a lot more, and spending more time with the kids (yikes). So I think this will be a good thing for us right now.
I also forgot to post in my last blog update about all the other animals we saw in my Dad's backyard: Coyote (saw one walk through the backyard like it was nothing--we also saw one somewhere else while we were driving, it was just out in the middle of a field). Deer (I think I posted that), sandhill cranes, and a skunk! It was pretty cute, but it sure did smell! We actually smelled it before we saw it-- that night about 2 am, it sprayed somewhere around the house. My car smelled like skunk for days after. Yuck.... Now that I think about it, I hope I didn't smell like it!... Oh well... No one said anything to me, so I must not have. :P
My Dad is supposed to be coming home from the hospital tomorrow. For a 'trial period'. ??? I guess, to see how he does getting in and out of the house, and around the house, by himself? I KNOW he is not going to want to go back into the hospital, after being home. He has been acting very rudely to the nurses and doctors. I won't go into that, but... I don't know how it will all work out, but... I'm sure I will hear about it this weekend. (Sigh....)
Three weeks ago from Wednesday, my "baby* will be seven years old! :( I told him I am going to stop feeding him so he won't grow anymore. He said 'Mom. I would die.' ;P I said I wouldn't do that, I'm just joking around with you... They grow up so fast. The twelve year olds' voice just got deep like overnight! I don't know if I like that!....
Well I will be around every now and then. I don't know if I will be able to blog much anymore. I guess we'll see. Take care, everyone. :)
