Addicted to Knitting

July 30th

Posted on: July 30, 2008

I love hearing from everyone. This is so fun to have so many visitors. I was asked whether or not I went with my husband on his “traditional” visit to Old Timer’s. The issue wasn’t old timer it was him wanting me to go with his sisters while he went to work. If he were going I would’ve packed my knitting and went.

Weird facts about me and mine

  1. I was an aunt the minute I was born. My nephew is 3 years older than me.
  2. My youngest son was an uncle the minute he was born.
  3. my family thinks I knit to much.
  4. I say exactly what I think, this gets me into trouble.
  5. I am often caught reading with one eye closed.
  6. My stepdaughter is 6 years younger than me.
  7. I cannot chew gum because I get carried away and bite my cheek.

For another entry in the giveaway tell me something unusual about you or your family. Also I have had some visitors I don’t know, if you recognize them let me know so you get another entry!

Hmm…one thing that’s kind of weird about me is that I am sort of ambidextrous. I eat and write with my left hand, but I do a lot of other things right handed or with either hand. Recently I tried painting with both hands at once. That worked out okay because I was painting a shed and could afford mistakes. ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you know you’re reading with one eye closed or does that happen without you knowing it?

I think it is sort of unusual that my mother always lived with us until she passed away four years ago. My kids grew up with “Granny” living with them and complained a lot about having “two mothers.”

Another thing is that I don’t like talking on the phone. I answer it only if I’m forced to and get off as soon as possible without being rude. Blog communication is much preferred!

I’ve heard that my family (at least the people we consider family, which doesn’t include my mom’s cousins and their kids) is unusual because there are few enough of us that we can all fit in a house.

When my husband and I were first married (our first summer of married life), we lived in a small camper in the midst of circus people (a lion tamer named Tarzan, his wife who was a trapeeze artist who could hang by one heel, a sway bar performer whose bar broke so many times he had a permanent limp…) Does that count?! And no, I couldn’t make this one up ๐Ÿ™‚

Most people do not see that i have my tongue pierced and have had so for more than 10 years. They also many times (my clients) do not know that i sing in a band and have for almost 20 years.

1. I am 23.- I know that does not sound weird but you need to know that to understand the rest of my oddities.
2. I have been with my hubby for 6 years. – and he is 2 years younger than me.
3. We have four children.
4. We had the 4 kids in 3 years.-Our oldrest is 4 and our youngest are 10 months.
He was only there for 1 birth.
5. We are happily married but have not lived together in a year.
6. I just started knitting to cope with stress- it works and I am now an addict.

There are so many bizarre things about my family. I’ll pick the fact I found the funniest. When I was 15, I went to the local historic society (my family had been living in our area for generations on my dad’s, mom’s, and stepmother’s side). I figured I’d get a few facts before leaving the country as an exchange student.

They were *thrilled* to have someone younger than 40 show up for a tour of historic houses in the town and to look for info on our history. Many people where I grew up weren’t even aware that we had a historical society. Well, they showed me a picture of my house in the 1800s. They showed me a few things, and then they asked me to repeat all of my parent’s names. I gave the names, and they went away for a little while. They came back and told me that over 100 years ago my dad’s and stepmom’s families had been related. I thought this was hysterical and spent years using it as an excuse to “explain” my half-brother. FYI, it was a small, minor relation that didn’t result in blood being shared between my dad and stepmom, but that’s not how I used to tell it!

I know turtle from ravelry and she often visits my blog:)
I taught my hubby to knit and we knit together he is also on ravelry as am I:)Hugs Darcy
