Love it and hate it at the same time...

Ok, most of you know if you have read earlier blog entries that I am a single mother of 2. Well the conditions between me and the X are for the most part ok. Since I moved out in February, he has moved in one girl and her son and moved them right back out and now has another woman living with him and her two sons. Well, my X decided that he wanted to take our girls to Geauga Lake and of coarse the rest of the misfits that live with him. So this past Saturday, after he got done working at the race track he came and picked them up. Since racing is an all day event at Columbus Motor Speedway, he was at my house to pick them up around 11:30-midnight. My girls were super excited to go to Geauga Lake, they didn't care who went with them. Well, that's the part that I love. I love that they enjoy spending time with their father and I love having my peace and quiet and sanity for a few days. But at the same time I hate when they go because I miss them. Yeh, it's nice that they get to spend time with their dad...but I just can't stand not having them around me. I know, I know. Some day I'll have to let them go but for now I'm not gonna. Well anyway, they just got back home last night around 9:30 p.m. and it was great to see them. They had plenty of rollercoaster stories for me. I'm glad they had fun.

On the knitting front...not much going on here. I have been working (slowly) on my Rogue. So far I have completed all of the knitting in the round and straight knitting up the back and I am now working through the pattern in the front. It's become a challenge to remember what I am doing on the wrong side vs. the right side. I now know what it feels like to be completely engulfed in a project. All I know is that I am going to have this done before fall so I can wear it this year. No ands, ifs, or buts about it. But at the same time I am also trying to complete a cute little pair of socks for my youngest and find yarn for my Central Park Hoodie KAL.

One of these days I'll get to my moms to download pics so until then...C-ya

Hi. I found your blog through the Central Park Hoodie KAL. I grew up in Ohio (North Canton) and always enjoyed going to Geauga Lake. My family and I were just up in North Canton and Xenia a few weeks ago. Have you had any rain yet? It was dry in Xenia. Good luck with finishing your projects! I have several to finish, too.
