Been a good long time since I've posted here. A few years from my most recent post, actually. I have a knitting blog and a writing blog; both of which are public so I thought I'd reclaim this one for my more personal thoughts and ramblings. Hard to let go of a journal I've had for so many years (since 2005!), even though my friends have most like deleted me long ago. ;)

Not too much has changed in recent years, we had another baby on October 30, 2011- a boy that we named Judah James, who brought my offspring tally up to a whopping eight. I'm still knitting/crocheting and pattern writing. I have begun to write a few books; one is much further than the other and I'm pretty excited about it. Its title is Warrioress and it is hard to put into any one genre as it's historical (set in 1430s Scotland), fantasy (there is a small amount of people in the world who are Seers. A Seer is exactly what it sounds like, someone who has visions. Man or woman alike, they are to fight for their lords and masters- hence the title.), and romance (yep, lots of erotica!).

Still living out in the boonies, I rather like it. No neighbors, no distractions, no drama- just our big family and pets. It allows me to focus a lot on knitting and writing, which is a balm to my soul. The air is fresh and the stars bright, it just couldn't be any more perfect.

New things in store for my life. K has a job now. He's going to be a charge of a gun shop and doesn't start fully until next month, but it's better than a fuckload of nada.
He also got me in this program with UNC-W for getting small businesses grants! He goes in mid Sept. to a workshop. This would mean KILOS of yarn. Kilos!!!!!¡@& I swear I will roll in it lol. I'll finally be able to have a full-on dyeworks guys! Shitballs.
I've been dyeing yarn again to get back into the groove (I hate u cancer) and I've been having fun lately with tone on tone semi solids. I am tired of fighting pooling lol. I can barely contain myself and feel like I'm about to spontaniously combust. I'll still be doing patterns too. I just released a summer romper pattern and I'm working on an all season romper pattern and two dress patterns. Life is pleasantly busy!

Maybe 32 will be one hell of a lot better than 30 and 31!!

Dear LJ,

I don't blog here anymore. I read my comments, my small list of friends on Livejournal and that's it. My email is different (can't access my old inbox) so drop a line here if you need to get in touch.

Sorry about the total lack of everything right now. Been really bummed.

Surgery again. Things get real mighty fast when you're assigned an oncologist. I have a "grape-like" cluster in my face (upper jaw/cheekbone) area. I *think* my consult will be Thurs and surgery likely the following week- we still have to schedule around K's work schedules. The biggest "grape" is 4 cm in diameter and there was more than a few others. I'm also going to be getting a CT scan and cone biopsy of my cervix-- mainly to make sure that my pre-cancerous HPV hasn't turned my abnormal cells cancerous, which apparently may be the cause of the tumors (even though the last was benign).. won't be doing those until after the move though. Jess keeps trying to push me to do it NOW, but I don't want to and it will be SO much more convenient once we're living in town and it doesn't take 8 years to get to the hospital.
I guess govm't help now is pretty much a guarantee..

Keeping this off Facebook because I REALLY don't want my mom to "visit." REALLY. (Can't emphasize that enough!)

Lots going on. Dana's still healing from his last eye surgery. Three of us had the Pig Flu. (Took me about a week to properly get over it, too.) I'm trying to get a cart all set up, we're moving in five weeks and looks like K is about to have three jobs. We've (I've) started purging our uneeded/wanted belongings. Our family acquires SO MUCH SHIT.
I'm getting anxious to get moved and get my yarn stocked up and have regular things to sell. I am feeling SO ready to stay in business for a good long stretch! I figure I'll take customs until I have a few things paid off and then save for bulk dye and yarn. I'm committed now that I have plotted and planned for so long to have a dye studio PLUS work area that I can lock away from the kids. The locked room will mean sewing and painting again- YAY!

My web stuff has been psuhed to the back burner. My immediate goals right now is to get Amanda's HC all nice and shiny then my HC. I made a new blog for the shop, too- kind of want to keep it seperate from personal stuff I guess. I'll share the link once I get it made over and there's actually stuff IN it. I'm thinking I'll put my free patterns in there.
I'm thinking hard on buying a new domain, I'm feeling a bit outgrown of the whole sh0tgun thing.

Knitting-wise I've done NOTHING. When I have two in school and two nappers at home, I should be able to get a lot more accomplished in my day. Don't think I'll begin play foods until then. Doll clothes maybe, too. Start gettng ready for the holiday season. Even things to have on hand for trades would be awesome. I do have some linen stitch bloomers in the works, I'm at the gusset and hoping to finish up this week. Won't be doing any of those for sale, that's for sure- linen stitch kills when you're old and arthitic like me. My needles should be free after these bloomers ( *coughuntil I get those measurements Jamiecough*), so I'm getting happy to be knitting for money for awhile.
I have a few canvas blanks I'd like to get painted and add fabric cut-outs on for the kids' rooms. I was inspired by a craft magazine and plan to alter an idea they had in a project how-to. =)

My health still sucks, but that's depressing so I refuse to elaborate for now. K's getting the BIG V after the move and honestly I never thought I'd feel so GLEEFUL and thrilled at the prospect of doing something so permanent..

I'm never on LJ anymore. Wonder what's up with that. If you haven't added me on Facebook, you should.

So a bit of an update on us. We're back on an about-to-move schedule. The family is FINALLY getting their new home finished up (they got set back due to some major water damage) and we're getting out of here the last week of July. I'm so fucking excited to have cable and high speed internet again.. not to mention pizza delivery and all the other good things that come with not living in the middle of nowhere.
Next week I'm going to start purging. I am disgusted at all the crap we've aquired through the years and I'm feeling intense lust for a minimalist lifestyle.

Dane had another eye surgery last Friday and he's doing well. He might need one more adjustment but as it's so early we're not certain on that yet. Both him and Alma see their doctors tomorrow morning. Wonder how much Al weighs because she's the fattest baby we've had yet, lol. The girl is HUGE- she has a little over a 16" rise and she just turned four months. I make super milk. =D

K's looking for a new job. Remember the salary and crap they promised last summer? Well obviously that's not going to happen. They're taking advantage of his gun smith skills and his knowledge and he has finally realized it. The last straw was when they refused to pay everyone for Memorial Day. He's worked there for over 6 years and they've paid him each Memorial Day for the last 4 years and he's just done. Thank goodness.

I have a new obsession- Twilight! I read all the books, plus the unfinished Midnight Sun draft on the Steph Meyer website in less than a week. I rule. K is really into it too- he's just finishing up the last book. In the 7 years we've been together I've never seen him read so much or so intently, it's awesome to share the Twilight mania with him. ;D
And speaking of books, I've finally started a novel that I've been thinking on for years. Hopefully it will be worth reading, lol. It's based on three different dreams I've had as well as a comic I wrote as a teen and I find myself thinking about the main plot and characters ALL freaking day long. I've finished the preface/foreward as a background intro on the heroine and hope to begin the first chapter today if inspiration strikes.

So that's really it I guess.. I better get back to picking photos to upload- it's been so long and my card was FULL.

Ah, the hypocrisy!

How is this wool different than when I tried to sell my woolies from a for sale post? Remember that?

Not pointing fingers at Mizzy or anything, just confused over the blatant favoritism.

I have no website right now. I'm changing webhosts (it's long and involved but they are trying to screw me out of over $200 when I've been paying the same monthly rate for YEARS) so everything is offline for the moment (ugh). If you're on the lookout for my patterns, try a Google search and then click on cached page and it will take you to it.

Knitting customs

Since I began spreading the word I was re-opening, my customs list has been growing quite a bit. If you want to get in on it, give me a hollar before the wait gets too long! Remember I can knit just about anything and crochet, too. =D

(Jamie, I can begin your longies whenever you LMK measurements- you're at the top of the list!)
