♥ Home is where the hook is!!
OK, I don't know where to start this, maybe I should start at the beginning huh??? Well...as none of you know, my hubby and i are buying a house. Yay...only thing is, I now know why 22 year olds aren't encouraged to get married, have kids, and buy a house. It is hard as hell, and absolutely impossible to do alone. I would love to show you all a picture of the house because it is absolutely perfect for us, but this is our second chance to try to get this house, and I don't want to jinx us anymore than we already have. I will just tell you, the house is beautiful, its more than we ever could have hoped for and we would be so blessed to have it. And the one thing i ask of you...please pray for us to get this house. We would love to have it. If you don't pray, do whatever it is that you do, wish for us, cross your fingers, think really hard and jump on one leg with your eyes closed and your finger in your nose...whatever you do...Please do it...TIA
Now onto happier news. I have been working on my CGOAG blanket and I am not on to row 32. I won't be able to work on it at all tonight or for the next few days, so I stayed up all night trying to finish what I could. now, without further ado...Here is my progress....
What do you think? Do you absolutely love it? It needs to be blocked to open up the spaces, and i have never done that, so this will be my other challenge...I hope I'm up for it...

Well, today we went house hunting. It really is hard to find something that you could picture yourself living in for like the next 10 years of your life. We saw 9 houses, and of those we hated them all. Each one had cute aspects to them, but none were completely what we wanted. After that we decided to go put an offer in on another house that we had already seen. I hope we get it cause we love it, but then again I hope we don't because we really can't afford the pre-pay things like inspections and utilities. I don't know what we are going to do. I know that we dont want to love in an apartment anymore, but it would be nice if we didn't have to depend on my mom, who in the beginning said she could help us, and now, who is telling us she can't. Grrrrr....I'm stressing again. This is bad for my diet.

♥ And we're off....
The CGOAG have officially started at 8:00 am. I have started. Based on my calculations I have to do 8 rows a day to stay on track. I think I can do that, but to make myself accountable to someone I have entered team afghan on for the games...and i will also post some progress and pics if I can. So...here I go, hook in hand, food in belly, ass on couch...and I'm off!!!

Have you ever had one of those hobbies that you were afraid to tell people because you thought that they would talk hella shit about you...? Well i have mine. It's crocheting. I love it. It it so relaxing and calming. When my son throws his temper tantrums i can just pick up my crocheting and sc, hdc, dc, tc, and ss him out of my head until he stops crying. lol.
So, my latest crocheting news and projects...
The round pineapple tablecloth here out of size 10 thread and a size 8 bates hook. One for me in white and one for my mom in cream.
Beginning at the same time of the olympics, I will be participating in the 2008 Crochet Games of Ancient Greece on crochetville.org and i will be making this in off-white caron simply soft yarn.
And I'm also planning on making a round ripple or a flower blanket or something, but that will come later.
Hook in hand...and I'm off...
