The downstairs (basement) is completely flooded. Mom always said she wanted an indoor pool! Seriously, she wont shut up about it.

There is a new spring that has come up threw the floor. Yup. We have a fresh water spring. My theory is because of the nasty earthquakes and tsunami happening, somehow we got an aftershock of some sorts aaaallllllllll the way over here. That and the super moon. Combined - BAM! New spring flooding our basement with fresh healthy water (contaminated by concrete and various items such as dry way and wood and clothing and carpet it becomes icky).

The kids are forced into the living room, where our christmas took place this last year. It's not the most comfortable, but the kids are surprisingly making it work. There are of course ups and downs because of such a drastic and sudden change, but they're kids.

The parents are in the guest bedroom which has turned into their family/TV/everyone's bedroom. The picture is of the living room, not the quest bedroom. Lisa (mom to the kids) was playing the video game as the kids were suppose to be asleep. They are SO spoiled! :) It's great. They were like 15 minutes late to their bedtime, but it was worth it. The reason behind the picture (more on facebook) is to share with Lisa's mom. I must take more pictures of the kids for her. After all they don't live that close anymore and need to be linked as much as they can!

The terror alert in the house has been at an orange. Stress wise that is. So much stress goes alone with this flood. Has anyone else been flooded before? Who do you call afterwords? What do you do after the new spring has flooded it's last flood and is done, or rather, how do you stop this natural accurance? Can you even stop something like this?

Keep me posted tweeps, and I'll try to keep you entertained! Oh yes, one more sock done! Used up the last of the green.

Put A Sock In It

Do you ever have one of those days where NOTHING a person says makes you feel any better? The bills are piling up; the dog poops in the house, leaving the option for feet to step in it; random marks on the wall with unknown utensils (I swear, this one is NOT a marker or anything you write with... still unsure what it is); and to top it off you find your hands so dry from all the cleaner you use that when you go to be intimate with your other half they actually flinch. Yup. Sandpaper hands. I feel like the maid.

But this maid has a sock in her hands! Yup, sock 4 is complete!

How awesome dose it look? Sweet, no? It's so awesome my awesome meter broke!!!

Growing out my nails... rather trying. Painting them helps me not cut them. I think it's because I don't see the white parts so I don't think to cute them. Theory? I think so.

Baby Steps

It's been 11 days since my last post. You may be wondering if I have been knitting so much that my fingers are unable to type up a blog, the answer: no.

One baby sock. One. It's cute right? Finished it when Shay and her fiance Chris came to visit two days ago. I'm praying to the gods that we can live closer so we can be closer friends again.

Aside from that I've been dealing with stupid headaches and a stupid migraine.

My attempt at a pastry... a 'smore with peanut butter turnover thing I found on the internet... not a big hit, not a bad hit, but not a good one either. I have to say I love the lady's site though! She's awesome. And they look pretty! Thinking next time if I substitute the peanut butter with marshmallows it would turn out perfect!

As for myself. My head still isn't 100%, but it sure as hell beats the leg hurting. To make things clear, I have been dealing with headaches lately, not migraines. I got a migraine the other day, but daily headaches, not daily migraines. Like weekly migraines.

We're all good on this end of the internet! Hope you're well on your end!

Hello March

March has started off rather well. Knitting a few baby socks! Not a one will be the same since baby socks seem to always get lost... or so I'm told. One of my dearest friends is having a baby! She and her hubby are expecting around my birthday (how cool!) so I am bound determined to knit them baby socks.

Isn't this exciting?
