I'm trying to knit 10 items from my stash before I go out and buy new yarn.
Stitches West is in less than a month. I don't think I'm going to make it. LOL
I actually thought I would concentrate on getting knitting gifts at Stitches this year. I join exchanges and always have a hard time deciding what I should buy to put into the package. My kids say they want to go with me. Actually the girls say they want to go. My son will be coming without a choice. Poor kid.
Rain is back. Hopefully it won't last to long.
It is the weekend. I would like to be able to get out without getting soaked. I'm not a fan of hot and sweaty raincoats.
As always I am exhausted. Wonder if I'll feel better when it is time to go back to work. I doubt it. LOL

I am so exhausted

I worked Fri/Sat night. The kids met me and we went up to my parents. Should have been there by 12-12:30 at the latest, instead we didnt' get there until 1:30. Took just as long getting home. None of us could get up this morning. If it is like this everytime I go up i will be traveling 12 hours a day. The only good thing is most of the time I will be by myself so hopefully I can catch a nap. Then once the house is unpacked we won't have to be doing so much work at the house. So maybe we can relax a bit.
I feel like such a complainer. I just can't stop complaining. Hopefully I'll stop soon.
I did get a little knitting done on my way home. Only because I made myself. I guess I'm just stressed out.

I think my brother may have the house empty on time. I had my doubts before, but now it looks good. Everything upstairs is out of the closets and will probably be packed up today. Yea. Tomorrow my brother is coming by to pick up the TV's. I'll probably go there today and then not until next Tuesday, Wednesday. The upstairs should be empty at that point. Then it is the garage, my brothers room and hall closet. Should take a week to get that empty out.
So there is an end in sight.
Of course it will take all year to put all the stuff into the new house.
Hopefully we can throw away a lot more while we are unpacking.

I have my spot in heaven

It took us 5 1/2 hours to get to my mother's house on Sunday. I was exhausted. Brian slept for 2 hours after we got there and then went to sleep on Sunday night without complaint. The trip home took 4 hours. The difference in weekday schedule and Weekend Schdule on public transportation. We'll do it again next week and then I'll go up once a week during the day.
It was very nice up there, just cold. We don't get that cold in the city. Even though my house is always cold.
There is so much packing to do at the old house and unpacking at my parents house. Can't find anything. Oh well. Could be worse.

Well we've had a few days of no rain. Some sun, cold.
I've had fun putting up my pictures.
Will be busy today. Need to go and pack more of my parents house. Tomorrow Brian and I will go up to the new house. A 5 hour trip on public transportation.
Hope I can get some knitting done.

I knit these gloves for my friend Lisa. I used the Uncommon Gardening Glove from Interweave Knits. I used Fixation yarn. They are very comfortable.

The move is over

The major part of the move is over.
My parents and brother and sister and 2 of my kids are in Elk Grove. Except it took so long to load up the truck, the move did go smoothly. I'll go over to the old house tomorrow to pack up the rest of the kitchen.
Hope they are having fun.

Day before moving day for my brother and parents. My son wanted to take today off from school to help pack. I think I'll keep him out tomorrow so they don't leave while he is in school. I'm hoping to get next Sunday and Monday night off so he and I can go up and spend time with my parents.
This will be both exciting and sad. My girls will go up with my parents and cat. They have no return date. I'm sure once the big stuff is unpacked my parents will start to settle in. My brother is off the rest of the month so at least he will be there. My sister is picking up a car for the next week, so she will be mobile up there to get things done.
Hope we are all able to stay calm.

I am so F'n Happy. I got a picture to post

You should hear me screaming over here. No rain at the moment, but that is what I see when it rains.

The Bourne Identity Scarf

< herf= "">


We packed for 4 hours yesterday. The one good thing with all of us doing it, we were able to take breaks and there was still someone to get the work done.
Wish they could act the same way here at home.
My mother is so happy that we are there to do the work.
My brother was able to go to the house with a full truck.
Very little rain so far.
Wonder how long before this big storm hits. Nice to see the sun.
I dont' need it to be warm. I just need the sun.
Not much knitting getting done. Should try and do a little today.

It's raining again

I am not going to look and see how many days of rain we've had in the past two weeks. I do not want to get depressed.
Just saying it is raining again. At least we had almost 2 days without rain. I should focus on that.
Of course I was hoping to take some pictures of my finished knitted items.
Today I need to get the tree out. Some wash done a little tiding up around here and then over to my parents to pack the house up.
Just a fun filled day.
Hope I can get some knitting done tonight.

I am trying to write something everyday.
I don't know if it will make sense or not.
No rain today. The sun is out. It is cold. LOL

I think I got the year right on all the charts last night.
It is official. My parents and brother move on Saturday.
So this week will be a whirl wind of activity. Packing everything will not be easy.
