We turned in the paperwork for restructuring the loan but haven’t heard a peep back from BOA or the lady who picked up the papers. I figure things are either going to get a reprieve, or go bad fast. Our date that BOA gave for foreclosure has come and gone. I feel like I’m living with my breath held EXCEPT….

Last weekend, I got to meet Haskell, see my oldest daughter, spend the day with my youngest daughter, see my grand daughter, hold my sister’s grandson, and hug my sister and her son! I choose to let the joy I felt propel me forward to whatever comes. It was wonderful. I can’t remember too many better days. I also went to my son in law’s sister’s baby shower, met all her friends, and was enveloped into the Westbrook family events. Lavonne is my daughter’s mom in law AND my friend. A perfect situation.

So everything is still as it was. We are in a holding pattern except that I am knitting like a nut! This month I have planned socks, a plarn bag, a shawl, and a hat and scarf. I’ve pretty much decided whatever I don’t sell by Christmas gets donated to some charity. I’m not picky at this point. I’m also going to carry around a baggie of hats and booties and little gifts and give them to strangers when the opportunity presents. I need to do this for ME.

As usual, the garden isn’t getting enough sunshine to grow anything but herbs.

I’ve also started collecting ideas from Pinterest. My next project is to write/design my own pattern. With all these babies around, it ought to be fun. I also need to make a crocheted robot for Haskell.

So there’s the update.



About Morning Knits

I believe in and practice positive living. I love YARN, music, bird watching, history, gemstones, and gardening. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family but I'm not. Funny how things come full circle. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a Kingdom-focused non-denominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. They are all grown. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in Kenya, married to the son of a preacher, with 4 spoiled dogs and a rescued cat. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative discs, fibromyalgia, and obesity. That last is hard to say. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and depression and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow-go.
