104 miles

I decided to make some attempt to clean and organize the yarn studio today.  I think I have everything in my stash on Ravelry now, and there is 104 miles of yarn in my yarn studio.  So, instead of blogging, and I going to take some bulky yarn and actually knit something until it is done today.  I have to actually use this, starting wtih the stuff that has been wound.

Hello, 2010! Come on in!

You can't help but think about about what you want for a new year once it arrives. 2010 to me is a year of good. I'm getting married. I will have my Associate's Degree by summer. We are getting a new puppy in a few weeks. I have a yarn room/office that I desperately needed to really make something I would use. I'm closer to my family and friends now that Eric and I have settled into our house. So, I decided to inventory and organize my yarn. This will be my year of knitting selfishly. Not just for me but for who, how and when I want to...

So, I have 700 skeins of yarn in my house. Wait! 700? 700 freakin' skeins? You'd think I would have a ton of finished or even started projects. Nope. To top it off, I belong to about 4 clubs that are still going to be arriving at my house at various points in 2010, AND I have a serious addiction to [ESK!][1] I mean, just yesterday on New Year's Day, I hit the 1 mile mark, not that is so hard, but I have 700 skeins of yarn. lol

So, this year, I'm going to be a puppy mom, wife, graduate, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, student, knitter who is going to have to figure out how to roll around naked in my Malabrigo without freaking out the dogs.

only 4 more days...

Is it really possible that time has flown by and yet, is moving too slow?  I'm down to just 4 more days until I'm in the car with the little bit of stuff that is still here in the house and on my way to Ohio.  Just five weeks ago, I turned in my notice to quit my job.  I know, crazy, but sometimes, you have to take a chance.  I'm sure I'll find something soon in Ohio.

Emptied the camera, Eric left with our stuff, and 10 days...

Eric's dad and step-mom drove up to help Eric take our stuff to Ohio.  Eric left with them on Saturday with most of our stuff.  The dogs and I are dying of boredom already.  I have cleaned both bedrooms, and I am going to pack the rest of the stuff that has to come with me this week.  In 10 days, I'll be pulling up to my new home until we find something more permenant.  Yeah!!!  :)

In the mean time, I emptied the camera, and look what I found...

Indy and Dega eating corn on the cob...

my little family

This one is my fave!  I forget what Eric was eating, but I hope we find a place like Long Grove where we can go to festivals and take the dogs for walks.
