Moving Fear and Knitting

I decided since this was the frist day of November, I would start being a better blogger.First on the moving, we are moving out of an apartment that we have lived in for 7 years. My 4 children my self and my grandson who is 10, My daughter Skylar who is a senior and 17, My son Logan who is 15 and a freshman, my soon to be 12 year old 11/16 Azya, and my just turned 8 year old Mayson. This is not a move of choice we live in public housing and it is not safe here any longer, so we are puting things in storage and will be staying between 2 houses my 17 and 12 will be at my aunts my 10 gyear old grandson my son and my 8 year old and myself will be staying with a friend. they only live 2 blocks from one another so it will not be to awful.Things probebly won't change much before the 1st of the year,I have a decent job but have only been there 3 months so have nothing saved to get us a house right now. WHich brings us to the fear I will have to get another job part time to get us in a position to get our own place. Then I won't see them very often, I guess my real fear is that I keep asking myself can I really do this?? And on to knitting not much of that going on right now I do have a pair of socks going in opal 17 colorway I will post a picture soon. I joined scout and bevs mitt swap I have been in the last 2 they had and really liked them so am going to do this on as well I have never knit mittens before but would love to.Well thats about it for today I need sleep.Thanks for stopping by!
