Knit Diva

Me and my obsession has come a long way since last couple of years... I definitely still consider myself a beginner and always looking to improve my obsession. I think it is my "CALGON"... It takes me away from my busy life with a wonderful husband and 8yo twin boys... YIKES!!! I never understood how addicting yarn could be until I started knitting.. I have crochet for some time on and off but I never felt attached to it as I do with knitting...

Oh My Goodness, The Brighton is Done!!!


The Brighton Bag is done.. I finished it the end of May... I will have to say that it was worth all the blood sweat and tears that I went through to use it on a daily basis... I absolutely LOVE this bag!!!!! It is BIG and spacious and I could not be happier... My wrist is thanking me that I am done with this project.

It took me about 2 months to finish this bag because of the pattern stitch... I could only do about 2 repeats before my wrist was hurting...

I started on the Everlasting Bagstopper and will be done with that bag shortly... I will definitely be using this bag for the summer months to hold sunscreen and pool stuff...

My boys are out of school and they are about to start summer school... We have Open House tonight!!! They are so ready for summer.. The weather in the Midwest has been exceptionally weird for the past couple of months... Right now we are dealing with LOTS of Rain and Thunderstorms... It is Tornado season!!!! You are always on guard... We have had Tornado's hit when it was nice and sunny outside with no looks of rain in the forecast. Missouri has such weird weather... Right now, it is HOT, HOT, HOT and Humid.. It is suppose to be 92 today... But it looks like it is going to rain....

We have been so busy with our store and racing for the past month and a half that I haven't had much time to relax...

My Hubby had Lasik done a little over 2 weeks ago... I bought 2 NEW EYES!!! (At least that is how it felt when I seen how much I was paying) We opted to go with the Lifetime plan (Custom Lasik) where we would not have to pay again for any future enhancements!!!! The first day was a pain in the behind!!!! He could not fall asleep after the surgery... I tried everything besides a tranquilizer to make him fall asleep... It took about 6 hours for the pain to finally subside and he could open his eyes... The first time I could pry his eyes open to put his antibiotics in, his eyes were bleeding... (TALK ABOUT SCARING THE CRAP OUT OF YOU) When putting the suction on his eye to cut the lense, his blood vessels broke... He still has an eye that is blood shot a little.

The Next morning, he felt like a million bucks... He woke up about 4:30am. ( I guess to look at himself in the mirror for a couple of hours...hehe) It has been so cute lately because every second he has, he is outside looking at trees (the leaves on the trees)... He has worn glasses since he was in 3rd grade... Every night he looks at me with a smile on his face and says, "I just feel like I need to go take my contacts out." LOL!!!!

Last night, we were going to bed and I seen him grab for his glasses on his face to put them on the night stand.... ROFL!!!! I asked him, " Did you just try to take your glasses off? LOL" He told me every night he does it out of habit...

I asked him what he wanted me to do with his prescription glasses and sunglasses and he told me to keep them.... ( I don't know what for since his eyes are at 20/25) The day after surgery he got to buy his first pair of cheap sunglasses... I am so happy for him!!! I have been begging him to do this for the past 5 years... If it wasn't for me, he probably would have backed out at the last minute again...

Sorry this has been a long post. I know it has been forever since I have blogged and I guess I am trying to make up for it.... My Bagstopper will be up soon...

Have a Great Day!!!! Ü

    I am so happy for you and for him. I have considered lasik surgery, but I am way too scared. Maybe when I'm 50.
