This blog chronicles my life as I try to balance healthy lifestyle habits with my husband's penchant for pizza rolls and my daughter's desire to watch iCarly 8 hours a day. It contains a mostly humorous, kind, and somewhat spiritual look at everyday life and the people who live it.

I know virtually everything!
It is probably not surprising that I know how to do none of these things. I may not know, but youtube does. I have learned to knit, crochet, make soap, create a gingerbread house from graham crackers, add beads to a knitted project, and make an envelope from construction paper all from watching youtube videos.
As part of my 'make all my gifts this year' project, I decided to knit Debbie a scarf for her birthday. Her birthday has long since passed and I am still knitting away, ripping out more rows than I keep, but studiously clicking away whilst the appropriate youtube video instructs, encourages, and cajoles me into believing that I can finish this project! Look how easy it is! Here we'll show you one more time!
I am part of a new generation of parent: want to learn how to build a rocket little Joey? Watch youtube! Not sure how to beat egg whites til they form soft peaks? Youtube can show you the way! I don't ever need to take a class, talk to another human being, or read a book again. All my knowledge can come from youtube.
Scary, isn't it?
