It's Friday, Friday, Friday

In all honesty, I forgot that today was Friday the 13th. I guess that might explain why my credit card was declined while shopping on post earlier this morning. I still can't figure out why $26 dollars at the commissary would be a fraudulent charge. Does USAA really know that I only grocery shop on Mondays? Or is it that they know I avoid shopping after pay day at all costs? Whatever the reason, I'm just glad that I had another card to swipe. The guy behind me seemed to be in a bit of a hurry..

After shopping, I'm feeling much better about entertaining tomorrow. I'm just sticking with chili for dinner, so honestly there isn't much that can go wrong. I'm not sure why I was freaking out so much in the first place. It's just our friends. I spent about $45 on everything for eight adults and five kids, which I'm pretty happy about. We've got a cabinet full of liquor that needs to go before we move, so everything should be just fine.

I'm currently hanging out upstairs in my "office". I've got a decent sized corner desk, which is half dedicated to blogging, and half dedicated to crafting. I have yet to figure out how to organize it though. I'm kind of thinking that the computer should go where the printer currently is, so that it can be easily accessed by the printer and the Cricut.

Since everyone is napping, I'm going to possibly attempt to do some sewing or scraping. I'm leaning towards scraping and doing care package type stuff. My Etsy shop is doing surprisingly well, considering I have hardly advertised it at all. I'm getting ready to ship another order early next week. Next week I'll be headed to Hobby Lobby to hopefully find some inspiration. I always had the greatest ideas for care packages while Hubster was deployed, and and now I struggle with them. Maybe I'll sew.. Haha

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Love, Alex
