As I sit and write this post it is snowing!! I know that it won't accumulate on the ground, but still, it is only Oct. 11!!! I don't mind the snow when the calendar says December or January, this is just too soon.

I finished my Socks that Rock socks on Monday night and I will post a picture later. This week has been crazy so far, but tonight after all the church activities, I plan on taking some pictures to put onto this blog. I am working on a baby sweater, so will have that WIP to post also.

Since I named this blog, confessions of a knitting diva, I suppose I should start confessing some things. First of all I hate housework!! I would rather knit or read or scrapbook. Does this make me a bad person? I love being a stay at home mom so I can participate in my kids activites and be home with them when they are sick, ect., but I hate the "housewife" part of my job. There, I said it. Will that make the cleaning and dishes go away? No, but I feel better. The kids are done with school for the week because the teachers have a convention tomorrow and Friday. I will be home, so then I can tackle some of the cleaning. YUCK!!

Second confession, I hate having to watch what I eat and exercise!! I started working out with a personal trainer almost two years ago. I have been pleased with the results, but to be honest, I still don't get that wonderful "rush" you are supposed to get after working out. I have been dealing with a lot of pain in my lower back and SI joint for a few months now, so I am currently not working out. I really don't miss it, but I know that exercise is good for my bone health and heart, and I do want to be a good role model for my kids. There, another confession.

Well, I need to get ready for my 4th graders at church tonight. Hopefully I can post some pictures later. Otherwise, I'll do it tomorrow.

Housewife does not instantly equal "I love house work!!" Just think of the scarry world we would live in if that were true! I never got the "after workout" rush. I always felt sore and crappy, but I would get a slight rush while working out. Eating right is a very tricky thing to do as well, but do-able. Oh, and snow is evil. . . *grrrr!*

Snow already!!! Goodness, I am SO GLAD I don't live where you are. I couldn't take it. As for the confessions, heck, neither of them make you a bad person!! :) I'm one of those weird people who does like to clean . . . but there are plenty of days I want to skip it and read or knit. :)
