The Insanity Begins!

Well here I am! Long time no see! I have exactly a week and a half left before we move! ( or should have that week 1/2, we have had one hell of a time with our PCS!) The hubs is busy as can be daily with clearing and trying to push paperwork through as swift as possible.. Crossing my fingers and hoping for the best!

This weekend we are going to break down the bed set and take down the heavier pieces of furniture down to the garage. I asked Jim to see if our friend Patrick can come and help. With my lower back injury I am afraid I won't be as much help as I would like to be! Hoping for the best on moving day though.

I need to make some tutorials! ALAS moving just gets in the way of things! I was thinking some simple tuts on half double crochet, and double crochet to start out with... We will see how the week goes though. Fall semester is starting the day we are suppose to be leaving too! I am trying to keep calm and prepare myself for school. Got to get into the mindset- prepare myself for school work. It is going to be very different from art school.

I am excited though! Environmental Science! I will learn so much and be able to come up with great ideas for sustainability! I wish I had more to type but I am going to work on a few of my writing projects and get this house clean. I am thinking today will be a good day to empty out the guest bathroom- you know, take down the shower curtain, clean out cabinets, etc.

PCS Prep 1.5

It has been awhile since I wrote a recent blog post. Things are chugging along nicely for the move. I went through my closet and filled up two garbage bags with clothes, shoes, and purses; which were then delivered to Goodwill. I packed a box of clothing I cannot fit into yet ( along with my winter clothes of course- no need for those either). I need to get back into the office to finish up the rest of the packing that needs to be done.

Jimmy's initial orders are for Korea- one year- hardship tour, with our home base as Fort Carson. Since he will be going to school to re-class/ change his job; I will be staying with his grandma. Of course I did some much needed thinking before deciding.( Never jump blindly right? lol) I know it sounds almost is not though. I am just a worry-wort and needed to find my usual "comforts" like an organic grocery store, meet up groups I could possibly attend, What pet stores are in the area, where the nearest vet is, and so on.

I also talked to Nan ( love her!!!) and that helped my crazy anxiety! It is wonder that I have made it this far as an army wife *wink* I have agoraphobia- severe anxiety and prefer to stay in my comfort zone (aka home). I love my husband of course so I manage to deal( this is good though- it forces me to deal with uncomfortable situations and so far it has been a good therapy for me-surprising I know); I might go a little bat shit crazy for a few weeks but hey! At least I can say the crazy evens outs.. hehehe!

Anyway! I am still without a good working camera but I do have some new listings in my Etsy shop. Here  are a few  below:
Since links do not provide pictures here is the latest jewelry set made by me

I cannot wait to get settled in when we move here soon. This way I can work on tutorials for the blog and other creations for the Etsy shop. I am looking forward to a good "vacation" from the shop.. While I am 'away' I will be working on a lot of things to add to listings- more stuff and varied. 

I will also be starting a new semester at a new school! THANK GOODNESS! Don't get me wrong- art school is definitely fun and interesting ( hard work too) but I wasn't happy. I have a really good feeling about this upcoming semester. 

As you can see I am pretty busy working on impending move, making a few items for the shop, getting ready for the fall semester and of course trying to spend every minute I can with the hubs. Well! That is it! A quick little update into the life of Lexxy! Not terribly exciting, but not totally boring... right?
