About Me

I have realized that aside from my little sidebar over there that tells you a tiny bit about me I have never really introduced myself.

I am not really sure if you care but let me just say hi.  I am a mom of a (now 11-year old) boy who has been diagnosed with high functioning Autism.  I had a companion blog for a while several years back and I read some of my old posts and have realized how much he has grown.

I am a knitter.  That is hard for me to say right now.  I am not technically working on anything right at the moment, though I have several projects in progress as any knitter would.  The reason for this is that I am still recovering from a bad concussion that I suffered nearly three months ago.  At first I could not stand up and take more than a few steps so I've made a lot of progress in my recovery.

Currently I am divorced.  My ex still lives in NYC and loves it there.  Honestly he can have it.  I am happy to be back home with my son and my family.

I am working for an apartment community and love it!

And now that you sort of know a little about me I can rant some more and share with you!

Wait what?

So.  Hello out there in the Blog-o-sphere.  I did not realize that I have let this blog go for five years without any updates.  I should do something about that!!

Wow.  Where do I start?

Five Years.

Five years ago I was still living in New York.

Five years ago I was a totally different person.

I am not going to go too much into all of the details right now.  I don't think I could handle it.  I do not knit right now because I simply can't.  My mind will not allow me to focus on it any longer.  And that makes me very sad.  There are so many things I want to say.  To do.  To start over.

That's it.  I have to start over.

I'm sorry blog land.  I have to start from scratch.

Brilliant Insane Incredible

I have had a brilliant, insane, incredible idea while looking at posts about who should play who for Outlander movie possibilities. I think that DAVID TENNANT SHOULD PLAY ROGER!!!

Think about it. He is a tall, educated scotsman who frequently hides his scottish accent with a very cultured oxford/londoner accent. He can sing, he's passionate and I think he would make an excellent Roger.

If by chance someone who knows what in the world I'm talking about sees this, I am talking about http://www.david-tennant.com look at his photos from Hamlet and Dr. Who. No he doesn't have green eyes but he could wear those color altering contacts. Otherwise his physic is perfect for Roger.

Other news.
I am competing in the Ravelympics that start in 11 days. This will be my third round of Ravelympics and I'm really excited about it. Planning on trying to finish a baby sweater, a few toys, the clapotis scarf, and few washcloths.

OMG I can't think about anything else.

Ok if you want to know what I'm talking about go to http://www.dianagabaldon.com/ and catch up on your reading. I'm anxiously awaiting book 8 but I know it will be a few years before it's out. In the mean time read the other 7 epic novels and be amazed!

Man I'm really in trouble. Like seriously bummed out. My stupid crappy iphone is busted. Well not entirely. I mean it still works....

Ok so let me tell you what happened. I was doing laundry at the local 'mat right? My son (age 5 and can't sit still to save his life) was pestering some little girl that was there as well so I made him come sit with me on the tiny bench and to keep his attention I let him play with my phone. Ok so that was obviously my mistake because he has played with my phone bunches of times and never had problems before but on this particular occasion I didn't have the cover on it. Not becuase the cover was broken or anything just becuase I didn't want to have it on there. So he was playing one of the little memory games I had on there and then started asking for other stuff. So I took the phone and put on a you tube video of Yo Gabba Gabba. He loved that so I got another one and he started trying to jerk the phone out of my hand. It was at this point that he knocked the thing out of my hand and it landed screen down on the concrete floor.

OMG! I was so freaked out. I thought for sure it was toast and was afraid to pick it up but once I picked it up I was amazed. It still worked! Ok.. so there are 5 HUGE ugly cracks in the glass of the touch screen but the touch screen itself still works. Since this was accidental damage though.. it isn't covered by anything. It so sucks. I would pretty much have to just buy an entire new phone just to get it fixed. So.. I'm going to wait until the new release if it will last that long. Hopefully. Fingers crossed.
