I’ve spent mt day sitting here playing with Venom while watching the Maintenance guys rip out all of the kitchen and bathrooms cabinets…. yeah not fun. I spent the weekend cleaning out said cabinets. My Apartment is a wreck. I did make my tiny stock pile look pretty. as soon as they are done (and I’m done putting things back away) I’ll try to snap picks of it all prettified. It really couldn’t have come at a better time since I’ve been spending the last few weeks getting reorganized and downsizing. We have A LOT of things we dont use or need, Lots of clothes we don’t wear and etc… I’ve been reading organizing blogs (my new favorite blog is IHeart Organizing), looking for ideas on Pinterest and figuring things out on my own. I’ve Learned to label, sort and trash things. My paper shredder is my new BFF… LOL not really I still love my real Besties, but its up there. I even made an awesome battastic Household binder, I’m still working on pages for it, but its together. I’ve even reworked my Business binder and organized Hello Kendra. I’ve been planning out post and content. I’ve got a friend that is working on a new biz logo. Things are coming together and I feel my days running a bit more smoothly. Venom still throws a wrench in the plans from time to time but its getting where needs to be..
Its been along weekend. Mr. Sailor had Duty and watch yesterday so it made for a lonely day for Venom and I. He did have today off so that makes up for it. He and I have been playing Skyrim, he’s been giving my pointers while he plays and I’m stuck. I can’t find my way to where I need to be. I can’t fast travel either as I just started the game and haven’t found all of the spots. Doesn’t really matter much as I dont get much game playing time anyways. There’s always something else to be done. Speaking of which….
Welp, we’re in Texas now. Let me tell you, that after living in Southern IN and FL, Texas is a different atmosphere. Everything is so different, especially the way the city is layed out. I like it. Its nice to be abole to hop on the highway, zoom to where we need to go and them hop back on and zoom home. NO stoplights and no having to navigate down several different streets at 40mph…. The drivers are crazy and careless though. Some women almost hit us the other day do to her being on her cell phone and crossing 3 lanes of traffic. She was not paying attention. Thankfully Mr. Sailor was driving.
With our move, we decided to downsize so that we could save some money and live in a better area. (military bases aren’t usually in the nice area’s of towns they’re in….) I now find myself with a problem. Since we now rent a 2bedroom Flat, we have lost about 500sqft. most of which is the 3bedroom and a garage. That being said I am trying to find ways of storing the things that we’ve kept and still be able to work and use them. My poor little Venom’s room is still in boxes. Several of which are my sewing stuff and Mr. Sailor’s garage things…. I’ve been looking at organizing and storage solutions/tips to make it work. We’re also getting rid of things we don’t need any longer. With all of my reorganizing and decluttering I plan on making it were I can work and get back on track. I’ve said it several times now and have started to do so but always came to a standstill. This time I have some powerful drive and lots of new incentives.
How was everyone’s weekend? I hope that everyone enjoyed it. I had a great weekend and a wonderful surprise. While I’ve been here a year exactly today, I haven’t made that many friends. The few that I have are mostly Active Duty, but their amazing people. Mr. Sailor and I had our baby showers insanely early on in our Pregnancy since we knew there wasn’t a safe way for us to travel back to Indiana in the middle of there winter. (By safe I mean, we’re not crazy and going to risk being stuck there when snow hits. Also, the thought of a 12+ hour car ride doesn’t sound appealing.) Any who, Mr. Sailor felt that I needed something more, so he took it upon himself to get together with our friends and throw me a surprise baby shower this past weekend. Let me say that they got me good. Poor Mr. Sailor failed to get a pic of my face when I opened the door to see my friends standing there with balloons and cupcakes in hand. Needless to say it made me feel very very loved. Its nice to get unexpected surprises. The shower was very untraditional, We played Kinect instead of shower games and had pizza instead of finger sandwiches. Everyone had a great time and I am so grateful for such amazing friends.
I’ve been quite again only because Mr. Sailor was on Leave last week and I was trying to spend time with hi since our Venom free time is coming to an end. I also spent the week cleaning the house so I can happily say that I a all caught up on all chores. I’m happy about the prospect of sewing all week. This morning was spent running errands so that this evening I can sit and work on finishing Venom’s quilt that I’ve put on the back burner. I have lots of things to show you guys but it keeps raining and I cant seem to get decent pictures. As soon as I can get the photos new things will be shared and listed. My one major goal this year is to work harder at S.B. Designs13. Ok well I need to go prep some purses. Stay tuned for the new things that are coming this week.
