I need to talk about knitting more

I haven't talked about my knitting in a while.
I've finished 12 items so far this year.
Right now I'm still working on the afghan for my nephew. Not doing very well with it.
I'm making the broadstreet mittens for Heather. Using Lion Brand Magic Stripes in Jelly Belly.
They will look nice.
Just finished Brians socks Magic Strips.
Finished a scarf for me. Lion Brand Fancy Fur in jungle print. They are Halloween colors so I have a scarf to wear for October.
Big fight in my family. My parents are not moving to the new house with my brother. I am upset. Nothing I can do about it. My sister wants me and her to subsidize my parents income so they can stay in their house. I don't think I can do it, but I guess I'll just have to try.
Still haven't told my husband. I told my kids yesterday. We are all taking a wait and see attitude.
My brother is in Atlanta for a week. So my parents have a few days by themselves before my sister comes down for the weekend. So I'll leave my parents alone to see how they do. I was there yesterday. My sister will be down tomorrow and is leaving Tuesday. So I'll make sure I stop in on Wednesday. My brother is back on Thursday.
Wish I had all the answers to the problems in the world. Since I don't I just have to muddle along.

Life goes on

Heather is 18. Time just goes by faster and faster.
My brother's house will be ready Dec 15. I think he is going to try and delay moving in until the first of the New Year. I think my mother wants to be up there for Christmas. So we will see how things go.
Not much knitting going on. I just plod along on the socks of Brians and the baby blanket for my nephew. Wonder if I'll ever finish anything.
I read everyones blogs with all of the artwork and pictures and ask myself why I do more with my blog. Then I get online and I don't want to do more with my blog. I have no ambition.
Maybe I need to have Fiona take a look at everything and help me out. LOL

LIfe continues

I wrote out a blog during the week about my stupidity. Just as I hit post I lost my aol connection so no one knows about how stupid I am. LOL
My sister in law is home from the hospital.
She had a heart attack on Sunday. She is 50. Talking to her just now she says she has been having chest pain for 6 months. She has no idea what they did to her. She says they put something in her heart.
My husband and her say she just had a mild heart attack. They did an angioplasy and stent placement on Monday. She doesn't understand what that means. I know that is your mind and body protecting you.
She says nothing is wrong.
My husband said they told her she just needs to cut down on smoking. I looked at her discharge stuff. It says she needs to stop smoking.
So I guess i can just hope things go well. I really have no say in the matter. She is an adult, it is her life.
I just told the kids that they have to think about their future health, because it is not good to have a heart attack so young. So I hope they listen.

Now where did I leave my....?

I swear to God. I would lose my head if is wasn't attached to my body.
I'm making Squares for an afghan for my new nephew.
I was getting mad at myself because I couldn't find my circular needles. Couldn't begin to think about what I had done to them. Wasnt' spending to much time trying to find them. Just courious as to why I couldnt' find them.
Asked Heather if she knew where they were. Get a funny look from her.
Mom, aren't they in your circular needle thing you bought?
Me: What circular needle thing?
H: The circular needle thing hanging in y���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������

Weekend's over

I know most people don't think it is because they have Monday off. These are my regular days off so I think the weekend is over.
Worked my weekend during a heatwave. Today was 96.
I had to stay at work until 12:30. Days was shortstaffed. So I came home and slept for 8 hours. Now I am awake. Once I'm sure the girls are home I'll go back to bed. May have a shower before I go to bed.
Brain is to tired to think.
I guess tomorrow will be another hot day. Good thing we don't get that many hot days. I couldn't survive.

My days are almost over.

Wow what a title.
I go to work tomorrow night. It is suppose to be beautiful all weekend. I will be asleep. It has been sunny all week. So strange for us. So I've been out every day. Must at least see the sun when I am awake.

First day of Sept

Free day at the zoo.
Went with a former work friend, her son and mother. We had a good time. Warm by my standards they thought it was just right.
Glad I decided to forgo cleaning the house to spend the day with them.
