The Joys of a House

We have been living in our new house for a little over two months.
Here is a few things I have learned.

1. Oil is expensive
2. Turning down the hot water tank will save on propane
3. 60 people will fit in my house
4. There is no insulation in the walls
5. The neighbor is friendly enough to pick me up off the side of the street and take me home when I am broken down
6. The pellet stove won't quite heat the whole house.
7. Buying pellets for the stove cost 1/2 as much as oil.
8. I can live and be happy in a chilly house
9. I love having a house
10. The power company charges you twice for electricity!

We will be going to Bermuda on a cruise in April! Jason's mother bought us all (there are 7 of us) cruise tickets! Can't wait!

No news on the baby front. We'll be going to the next dose of Clomid soon. After these next two rounds if I'm not pregnant then we will be saving up some pennies for some tests...

Argyle Hat & Other Plans

Made my Dad a hat. I still haven't taken his picture in it but I will soon. The hat is made so that the bottom can be folded up to a double thickness to keep his ears warm.

I knit my self one mitten and I will be working on the second one shortly.
I also am making a baby slipper sock of my own design. It isn't pretty but it's functional.
My sister choose what she wants me to knit her its a vest hoodie designed by Spud and Chloe. I haven't been able to purchase the materials yet, but I will soon.
My Dad has requested a hat that says "LOWE'S" on it so he can wear it at work, my Mom has asked for a shrug for her birthday, and my hubby would like a new better fitting hat.


I love that I have so much to do!

New House

On November 23, 2009 Jason and I became home owners!

We more than doubled our living space! Since moving I have had a dinner party, a brunch, and a birthday party here! We have been having so much fun!

Round 4 with Clomid

I'm feeling a little frustrated. I'm feeling a little worried that it's not going to work. I'm worried that if the clomid doesn't work that we won't be able to afford other treatments.

Busy Knitter

I have been a very busy knitter this Christmas Season.

I knit 12 dishcloths, three Toilet Paper Caddies (my own design), three bunny loveys, and two Button Buddy Blankets (my own brilliance). Then with some leftover yarn I made a baby hat.

I promised my brother that I'd knit him some Trigger Finger Mittens (I haven't quite found a pattern that I've really enjoyed so I had to tweek it a bit and they came out all right, not fantastic but passable). My next project will be a skirt for my sister (if that's what she chooses) and a cow for my sister-in-law. In between those projects I'm knitting my brother a hat to match the mittens and a hat for myself using some argyle.
