Tuesday has become my little taste of freedom in recent months. I get to get out of the house and hang out with wonderful knitters at our local chain bookstore for a few precious hours. On Tuesday I am generally motivated to photograph my projects that need them and get them posted on Ravelry, Facebook, and Twitter.
On Tuesdays I also get to stress though. Typically about how my offspring are behaving for whichever poor soul has offered to watch them for me. Before January this poor soul was typically my husband, however, he has been in Basic Training for the US Coast Guard for the last 7 weeks. He graduates in a few days but will be leaving for California shortly after. Since he began this endeavor, Tuesday nights are overseen by my father or brother or mother. I'm fortunate enough to live with them while my husband is training. They help with the kids and it cuts down my expenses so I might have some semblance of a savings account.
My son is three and my daughter will be one in May. They keep me on my toes and are the only thing that can pull me from knitting from dawn til dusk. I do enjoy cooking though, and spend a fair amount of time playing World of Warcraft (or at least logging in to talk to friends while knitting).
In short, I haven't been knitting long but I feel like I found the one thing I excel at and I have fallen in love for life. From here on out you can follow my triumphs, my shortcomings, and my daily escapades here, I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy sharing them!
