3 weeks sans computer, and lovin it

I would apologize for not posting for the past few weeks, but I'm not going to, 1 because no one wants to hear it, and 2 because I'm not sorry.

The reason I haven't posted on here in almost 3 weeks is that we turned our computer off after I made my last post and simply haven't found a need to turn it on yet.

It acutally started out as a dare to Rene, He had the day off work and I simply said "I bet you can't leave the computer turned off all day, you'll go crazy." so he left it off, and I said the same thing the next day. And we just haven't turned it back on yet. We don't need to. My phone connects to the internet and so does the wii(I'm on the wii right now).

I think we're both happy with it, I haven't really felt the need to turn it on.(Rene just reminded me that skype is on the computer, which is what he calls his mum on)

With all the extra time I've had from not being on the computer at all, I've been reading alot, and the library is my best friend(I have 6 books out right now, and I think I've started a book a day habbit) One of the books I read was "Your money or your life" which Frugal+Urban suggested on her blog(The link is over on the right, great blog, go take a peak) GREAT GREAT GREAT book, Love it. Going to be following it. I actutally went a scoured the secondhand book stores in the area for it, and found it for 10 dollars(Which is something the authors would be proud of I think. And I'm making Rene read it. It's something I feel like I can stand behind.

If you are at all interested it's something worth taking a look at, and maybe a quick read through.

Also, Audrey, if you read this, I did sign up for ravelry, you should email me and I will tell you my account name. :)

Till next time my friends

Seriously. Stop with the sugar alcohols


Stop eating sorbitol, xylitol and any other "tol"s you have in your home.

I know that they aren't as bad for you as white sugar is.

But they aren't good for you.

I have a HUGE beef with the "Tol"s of the world. You may think you are doing your body good using them. You're not. Your body doesn't recognize them as sugars and doesn't get any satisfaction from eating them, WHICH MEANS you will still want more sugar. So while you aren't ingesting sugar, you're also not making your body happy, and you will just want more sugar right after you've consumed your "tol".


Just stop.


I'm done.

I've got the knitting bug again

I've been knitting a lot lately, like every chance I get.

I just finished a pair of socks that I got a little bit anxious with and made them a tad too small. :) Fun part is, I knit them at the same time. I read about a way of knitting 2 socks at once that looked really hard, so I had to try. :) It's called!!!! Double knitting. It wasn't super hard, but it wasn't easy either, it's very unforgiving if you make a mistake. :) It was super cool though.

Well that's what I've been up to.

Do you knit or crochet?
