Good News?

I have a job interview in two weeks.  I'm not going to get too excited so I won't be disappointed if I don't get it.  I have no idea what job God wants me to have, but we shall see what happens :) I guess I'm afraid that now that things are starting to look up they won't change and I'll just have gotten my hopes up for no reason.  I can't wait until I do get a job, I miss grocery shopping and cooking :(  I'm off to write some letters now.

First Project of the Year

I've decided to make a cookbook.  It seems kind of pointless to try to remember where all my favorite recipes are and how I've changed them.   I need to cut down on fast food, junk food, and sugar; the last time I cut all those out I lost a little over 10 pounds in 3 weeks.  My panic attacks weren't as bad either.  I've just been having cravings for Dr. Pepper, Chocolate, and greasy, fating food; all of which I do not need.  Now I'll have something I can focus on when I start to panic, food lol

I've started by making my recipe cards and I have my collection of favorites ready to write.  My problem however is I have no idea what kind of book I want to put them in; binder, 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbook or 12 x12 scrapbook,  or some type of file box.   I've been thinking something like these, but a little bigger.

More Organizing :)

One of the things that helps me re-energize after being around a lot of people is to make things, like cards.  So today I've been re-arranging my craft supplies so I can have them in a quiet room so I'll have everything I need when I need time to myself.  They have been in three different rooms for lack of space :(  I should be finished tomorrow :)  I also have a pretty good start on flowers for some of my valentine cards.   I am having problems getting ideas for cards for guys, some cards I have seen that I like I don't have what I need to make them.  Right now the soldier I've adopted is a girl so I don't really have to worry about that right now.  Below is a picture of some of the things I made this summer when I needed alone time, as I call it :)

The only "bad" thing about my marker container is it can only hold 8 markers, right now it's stocked with Valentine colors.
