They say that waiting for test results is hard to do-ooo.
Now I know, I know that it's true-oo ....

So, I guess it's a good thing I know how to pass the time between that waiting. I've managed to do a bit of knitting. I know it doesn't look like much yet, but they will look prettier soon!


Speaking of knitting, look at the gorgeous yarn I received in the mail


I have some ideas of what it might eventually become but I'm not sure yet! It's so gorgeous and soft and lovely though. I can't wait to start knitting with it. A few weeks ago I also got some pretty sock yarn in the mail (all of this yarn has been gifts from lots of loving friends!). So I have to knit up some pretty socks to wear too! And well, knitting isn't such a bad way to pass the time.

Aside from that, the kids schedules are keeping me busy! There's school work to do, games to play, art to make, music and sports to drive too! {And yes, I know some of you have been wondering, but we do plan to continue homeschooling at this time. It's part of trying to keep the kids lives as consistent as possible and not completely turning their world upside down. Might it become challenging at some points? Sure. But that's the beauty of homeschooling - we can move at the pace we need to move at for us.}

And of course, the internet keeps me busy - so many wonderful e-mails for me to read each day and I'm trying to respond to them as I can! And well, I probably shouldn't admit this, but um, I've recently fallen in love with all the Real Housewives shows. I know, I know! But they are fun to watch and just tune out my reality for a while!

So we are waiting. But at least it's not pacing and praying for the phone to ring right. this. very. minute. And hopefully, the wait will soon be over! But in the meantime, I'll keep knitting, being mom, being wife, being daughter, and watching reality tv ;-)


  1. You mean, you aren't living life like the real housewives? It's hard to step away from a circus....which one do you keep up with most. I cannot keep them straight. I can see where wanting to keep things normal would be ideal, especially as you all adjust to some new normals for a bit. Homeschooling does have advantages in that way, for sure. As always, your attitude inspires me. xoxo

  2. You have to get through the time no matter what you do with it, so it makes sense to do something productive and beautiful. And I'm with Deborah--keeping things normal is a good thing if you can do it.

    I make sure nap time behins by 11:55 so I can watch real housewives! Lol I am truley an addict. Even if I don't really care for the wives I still watch. I LOVE that show! I guess I just made it to the second step! Lol

  4. *hugs* to you, sweetie! You've definitely got a lot to keep you busy, which is sounds like is a good thing. I have my fingers and toes crossed that there's a lot of good news coming your way soon. Can't wait to see the finished products!

  5. Nice article, thanks for the information.

  6. Your spirits are high. I like that. The yarn is beautiful. I love the shade of blue. I know your overcoming attitude will help you soar through this.

  7. I would have no idea what yarn or wool to pick out for you. None. Hope you make something beautiful with that!

  8. I have my own Guilty Pleasures TV, and maybe someday I'll actually speak it out load without fear of continual laughter at my expense. For now, I'll keep my trap shut, lol.


Seeing your comments makes me smile! Thank you so much =)
