I have been lurking

I have been reading every few days but just haven't taken the time to post anything! But I have been knitting! Life has been really crazy and busy lately. Normal for summer time.

Here is the very start of a shawl I am working on.......
And an infinity eyelet scarf that should be done very soon.

And a couple completed items finally!!
Also continuing all my dish cloths for the different swaps i am in. So I have been with the needles.
Trying to figure out what to do for my dad's wedding coming up in September. But drawing a blank!!
How have you all been lately??

Ohio tornado season has ripped through my life......

Tornado Pic Pictures, Images and Photos

We had a tornado hit down the road a few weeks ago but that's not what I am talking about. My life has been completely over turned lately. And I was so embarrassed to share but it has been eating me up!

My husband and I are recovering alcoholics and addicts. I have 20 months sober today and my hubby just had 31 months, and then he relapsed twice in less than a week and was missing for 3 days. Complete agony. And then he came home to get more money to use up and ended up hitting me. So I pressed charges and he is now sitting in jail since last Wednesday and will be til at least the 1st. My kids are confused. I am torn. And my two year old just keeps asking for daddy. We could all use some major prayer!!! Everyday I just ask God to carry me through and help me to do his will.

Now I am just trying to figure out how to pay rent and the bills and such since he went through ALL the money!
I HATE THIS DISEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alcoholism!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARRRHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love my husband. But as long as he is in his disease....he can't ever come back!!!

Feels like I have been off of here forever!! LOL We have just been so crazy busy!! School ending kept us busy! But now its summer. And an actual picture of knitting!! I forgot to take a pic after the blocking of course but I was pleased with it especially being my first shawl! Any one know of another pretty easy beginning shawl pattern? I got the itch now!! Mainly I have been working on lots and lots of dish cloths. Quick satisfaction......

Just some random shots of the family, we love cookouts, fires, fishing, riding go carts and dirt bikes. Pretty much anything out doors.

Oh and chalk on the side walks too!

And sweet cold treats!

Momma doesn't like the Ohio humidity though AT ALL!!!!! I swear if I could find a place that is sunny and 70 to 75 all year I would move in an instant!!
Where would you love to live??

Man I really couldn't come up with a title today LOL. My mind feels kinda squishy. I am tired. No new news there. That seems to be the theme lately!

So I actually finished a knitting project last night !! Woot woot. Pictures and description to come later. It is a gift for my Fiber Pen Pal. And I want her to be surprised!!

There is actually sun shining today. It has rained all week but it is to begin again tomorrow! Blah so tired of it.

Was trying to add a picture but it is not working so never mind I guess.

Until next time............................

If you have time check this out!!
Love these guys! They love God and still are their spunky selves. My dad who is mid to late 50's and I went and saw them and dances together and laughed together!! It was an amazing time!!
My dad and I go to a lot of Christian rock and contemporary concerts together. Its a great way to hang out and praise God together. Which is also kinda weird. I was never very vocal about my faith, but through music it is possible.

The last week and a half have been a complete blur. So much going on and the kids school year is wrapping up in the next few weeks so lost of programs and such. AND RAINY WEATHER!!!!! Poohy I wish it would only rain when I am sleeping! That is not too much to ask is it??
Hope you are having a great day!
