I can't believe that two weeks from now we'll be in Texas looking at houses. I'm starting to panic. There's so many choices and it's so hard to decide what to give up and what we must have. Part of the problem is that we could be in this house for a very long time if things go as planned, but we could also be moving in four years if they don't. We haven't owned a home since before we went to Gemany the first time and I'm so excited and so scared all at once. The real estate market in Texas hasn't hurt like the rest of the country because houses there are already so reasonable, but taxes are very high. Something will turn up and I know that when we walk into the perfect one we'll just know it... I hope.
When I'm not on the internet shopping for a house, I've been playing with the new spindle I bought at SPA.
I started a simple Old Shale scarf and am knitting the plied yarn right off the spindle as I go. I'm anxious to compare the beginning of the scarf to the end to see how much I improve. I have to say, I saw huge improvement after the very first spindle full. I was putting way too much twist in both the singles and the plied yarn at first.
Dan and watched a documentary called "Dear Zachary" last night that left us in disbelief. It's easiely the best documentary I've ever seen. The story is so sad but it's a wonderful tribute to a man that was much loved by his friends and family. Truly unbelievable how crazy some people in this world are. We've seen a lot of crazy with Dan's career being what it is, but this is unbelievable because of the court system in Newfoundland protecting a murderer and letting her back out on the streets *and* allowing her to have custody of her baby.
