More time in the day

In the middle of moving, track practice, Cub Scout meetings and well, everything else I do, I decided to take up a new hobby. Unfortunately, that hobby is not keeping up with blog posts, lol.

I've been knitting. I am about half way through a blanket in red, white and blue ombre. I also just finished a book mark that was just because I wanted to finish something, lol. I'm not doing anything elaborate, but just simply knitting. I can't read in the car as I get car sickness pretty bad, so I thought knitting was something to keep me busy while driving all over town for track meets. It is also something to do during practice.

Not something I'd normally do

Hubby's cousin's husband just posted on Facebook that the man who killed his sisters is up for parole. You can read about the story here.
This is the message Mrs. Purnhagen posted on Facebook:

Uh ohhh, I need everyone's help to keep Delton Thurl Dowthitt in jail. If you could all send an email to I would appreciate it. His inmate number is 632108. He is quickly coming up for parole in the next few weeks. My daughters names were Gracie and Tiffany Purnhagen and Delton and his father murdered them on June 13th on 1990

If you aren't comfortable doing this, I understand. I just am not sure that less than 20 years in prison is enough for killing a 9 year old and being part in killing a 16 year old.

Home again, home again

We all just got home from a trip to Wyoming so I'll have plenty of new pics to share, including first snowball fights for the redheads :D
First though, I must get back to real life. Fall Festival at the church and then a Wolf Den meeting.

"Not Me" Monday

Ok, so this is my first time to participate in this and it's been awhile since I posted, so it's gonna be a "not me" for about the past month, lol

I did NOT break my ankle while in Atlanta a few weeks ago. Nope, I certainly didn't step down on my foot wrong and it really didn't happen in the middle of the Georgia Dome. I also didn't hop myself up on Tylenol 3 for the drive home from Atlanta and I really didn't let my friends drive my van back to Houston while I slept off the effects of the drugs.

I didn't look at my blog 3 times since then and I certainly didn't start 3 separate posts that didn't end up so incredibly whiny that I felt I couldn't post them. Nope, I wouldn't be such a bad blogger that I couldn't find anything to post about, not me.

I didn't walk around my house yesterday without my boot on and irritate the ankle I didn't break in Atlanta, that would have been stupid. j
I didn't steal my oldest child's boot from his heel problems because it really ISN'T so much more comfortable than the one that the podiatrist gave me.

I didn't eat half a loaf of beer bread last night from a competitor's company, and I didn't smear it with a spread also from the competitor's company. I'm also not considering making another loaf of said bread to repeat the process today.

I didn't throw a tealight at my oldest child's head this morning because he certainly didn't get mouthy with me. I also didn't throw one at him last night to get his attention because he certainly wasn't quoting Jeff Dunham during a family meeting.

I also didn't cheer on the Titans last night simply because they were in Oilers jerseys. I also didn't cheer when T.O. was taken down by the Titans players seconds after catching the ball.

And right now, I'm not laying in bed working on this blog post when I should be getting ready to take the boys to piano lessons. That would be irresponsible and lazy and I'm never irresponsible and lazy.
