Limits Schmimits

So after the last episode, I figured I better set some limits because I was really upset. I sent my dad an email that he would not be taking number five out of town until further notice (due to a little lying about the kid's age to get him into the pits at Berlin raceway and signing a waiver he had absolutely no legal right to sign), and that one two day visit a month would be more than enough.

Dude, this is not the Hilton or his vacation home ya know? I know I seem like I'm really mean (and frankly I'm cool with that) but I know it's good for number five to get to know his grandpa, and that his grandpa won't be around forever and all that, but I don't think I have to let him walk all over me either. Where's the balance? I don't know! I tend to want to just cut off communication altogether, but that would hurt my son, so what to do!?

In other news, i went out of town to help my sister move into her new place with number five and my mom. I'm not sure how much help we really were, but it was fun. It was still good to get home and see the Chief last night.

finished pair of socks photo to come soon. Oh and I'm finally on the last clue of the scrotum. It's still like twenty rows or something, but I'm feeling like there's a light at the end of the tunnel. When you have close to 1,000 stitches per row, they go a bit slow.

Summer is kinda gettin me down. i feel like I need a break, but none in sight, none at all.


  1. I really hate that word........balance. It is so frekkin illusive(?) My balance may not be your balance and vice versa. I suppose balance is in the head of the beholder?

    There is a KAL just taking signups, you probably already know, SOTSiii. I joined, but will probably just vicariously knit it through the other members. I am really enjoying my "other" knitting right now.

  2. Thank you so much for reasoned comment on my blog. You were not butting in but commenting which is what I like people to do.


I can't figure out how to respond to comments because blogger is funkay. Thanks for leaving one anyway!
