The truth about fear

I started to write something here, but I deleted it. They say the truth can be liberating, but fear has a pretty strong grip.

On the Second Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

...two sleepy kittens~

(Will update with a picture when I get a good one, they're always moving!)

Not much has gone on since yesterday, honestly...I worked! A LOT!

Uhhh...JCP has a button thingy they're doing, and I want to collect them all- I've already won 3 $5 certificates and 1 $10 certificate...they will be used for Christmas shopping! :)

We had pizza for dinner tonight, it was delicious. :P

Bed time then work tomorrow, and (hopefully!!!) getting and setting up some Christmas decorations!

On the First Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

A partridge in a pear tree!

I meant to post a bunch of stuff over Thanksgiving, but I was way too busy working and cooking and cleaning to even think about anything else! I'm gonna do a list of things I'm thankful for every day until Christmas. :)

The First Day of Christmas: I am extremely thankful that our first Thanksgiving went smoothly and that both sides of the family could make it. :)

Instead of writing a really long post about Thanksgiving, I am going to go heat up a thing to take care of my cramps and then read webcomics. Yay. :3

Getting Organized: Clothing Drawers!

So, I have a lot of Tshirts. And by a lot, I mean A LOT. So I decided to organize them! Of course, this pin from pinterest (my new addiction, there's so much I want to take inspiration from on there!!!) helped motivate me to reorganize some of my clothing drawers. :)

So, with my shirts stacked in the drawer like this, I had no idea what was actually in the also didn't want to close properly. Fixing time!

Step 1: Take all your shirts and throw them in a pile on your bed. Then organize them into piles! Mine were (not pictured): sports shirts, then workout shirts, then  random shirts!

 Step 2: Lay your shirt flat with the side you want showing on the bottom.

Step 3: Fold the shirt in half, lining it all up.

 Step 4: Here's the part I did differently...Fold the sleeve and side in, with the edge of the sleeve touching the other side of the shirt. I wear a L or XL in tshirts, so this gave me the best use of space.

Step 5: Fold the shirt in half lengthwise by folding the bottom up to the top.

Step 6: Fold the shirt up lengthwise again, then put in your drawer and repeat the process with each shirt!

Voila! I fit a total of 25 shirts into my drawer using this method. They fit better, and I caa see them all!

I also used this method with my pajama drawer (shown below- shirts on the left, shorts in the middle, pants on the right) and my unmentionables drawer (never gonna be shown! XD)

The sock drawer is my next target! :D Show me your finished drawers!

Spoils of Victory

I have today off, hooray! Of course, there is no rest for the weary, especially when you have a house to work on- but we're getting closer day by day. :)

Today, I removed the tape from and shelf papered one side of our bottom cabinets. We FINALLY have storage for our cookware!!! It already looks so much better. Before we were just storing our stuff on the stove and on the counter, which left very little space to do anything.

With our newly-acquired counter space, I decided to break down the rest of the watermelon we had in our fridge! Here are the spoils:

And that doesn't include the pot of pickled watermelon rinds I have cooking! Mmm, I hope they turn out delicious!

I already did a load of dishes, but I'm going to have to do another one today after we eat all this watermelon at D&D. :D

To celebrate my shelf papering victory, here are my spoils:

Still Alive

As the title states, I am still alive. All I've been doing lately is working, coaching, and family stuff. I feel like I'm getting sick again, though- I'm constantly exhausted. Oh well.

Trying to get into a healthier lifestyle, here's hoping I can stick with it. :)

In other news, I've been doing crafty things (making clay things, whoo!) so maybe I can post more and make more things and it'll all be cool. :3

okay bed time. <3 (so tired haha)

Thrifty Find Friday: Super awesome belt :3

I am all about getting things for cheap, or for good deals in general. Yesterday on my break at work, I explored the mall for present ideas for the MANY May birthdays our family and friends have...and found something cool for myself. :3

this pattern repeats over the entire belt

Awesome psychedelic owl belt, right? :D It was on a super cost $1.04 after tax. :D

In other news, I am currently suffering from a horrible sinus infection and ear infection and period, trying to take it easy today while still getting house stuff done. If you remember my to-do list from my last post, I haven't gotten a lot done. The fridge is complete and in working order (except the water line...), and Will put a second layer of Spackle on the holes in the walls.

Today I'm working on taping, painting, and cleaning out the cabinets in the kitchen. Being sick does not help matters, but I can do a little, take a break, and do a little more as I feel better. :)

Time to get back to work!
