Another Attempt!

I am goign to make another attempt at writing consistently! The only way I will be able to is if I stick to a schedule, which as of late is proving impossible! I guess when you have 5 children under the age of 3 with you each day that is understandable!

I am beginning my winter knitting. For you, that means all my summer knitting on my Etsy site is 30% off, because I need to clear the space for all the new, cool stuff that is coming! I am currently working on a really pretty scarf and hat pattern called "Classy in Cable." Its simple but super classy scarf, with one cable running up the middle, in a pale yellow. I am struggling on whether to sell this or keep it for myself! (It occured to me that in all the years of my knitting, I have never made anything for myself!)

A portion of all my hat and scarf sales is also going to be donated to the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program.

Interruption! In the middle of writing, one of my sweet little daycare boys got sick. Poor little thing. He went from fine to 101.2 fever in about 5 minutes. I hate when my little ones don't feel well! Mommy came to get him, now the rest are laying down for nap! My most favorite time of day! If I were a smart mommy, I would lay down and rest, too. Too much to do! Scarfs to knit, kitchen to clean, scarfs to knit......who cleans when there is knitting to be done?!

Off to knit!

Introducing 13 Plum Knitted Creation, and me!

Unfortunately, this is not the first blog I have started. It is, however, going to be the only one I truly attempt to write on consistently, and more than once! Let me introduce myself! I am a SAHM, and love every minute of it! I have two beautiful children, ages 7 and 15 months. I have been married to a wonderful man for 4.5 years. He is truly my best friend. I own a daycare in my home, and care for two other children each day. Between 7 and 5 each day, I care for 3 children, all under the age of 2.5! There is never a dull moment! In addition to all that, I knit. I knit to the point that it could consider it an obsession. Because I had so much STUFF laying around, I decided to start selling the things I had created. Its been such a blessing! Currently, I have my things in a local store. I also hope to start going to craft shows. My maternal grandmother did this same thing when she was alive, and she is one of my heros. She was one of my best friends, and biggest cheerleaders. I loved her very much!
I consider myself to be a new type of feminist. Not a bra-burning, equal rights feminist, but one who embraces and truly enjoys serving her family. One who considers her husband the head of the household. One who provides for her family frugally. I guess you could say my goal is to be the stereotypical 1950's housewife. I truly think my husband respects me more now, as a SAHM than he did when I was working full time as an insurance rep.
I am a Christian. I go to First Presbyterian Church currently, although I have never been one to associate myself with denominations. I hate that. Christ calls us to be followers of HIM, not a church. I have a relationship with my Lord, and try to live my life in a manner that would please Him. If you do not believe the same way as me, that is fine! I am not judgemental in anyway. I will accept anyone, regardless of beliefs, and only ask you do the same of me. These days it seems its ok to be accepting of any belief system, religion or lifestyle, except Christianity.
Please follow along with me! I can't guarantee every post will be riveting. Infact, some days it may just be me complaining about how many dirty diapers I change in a day. Of course, there will be days when it might be really neat! At any rate, please feel free to leave comments! I look forward to getting to know people! Thanks for reading!
