I am trying to look at this all with a positive light... which honestly isn't too hard. Things weren't good, and we were both at fault. Its going to be kind of weird being on my own again, but in the end its what's best for me, and both of us really. I wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors, but I am not as sad to see him go as I thought I would be. Although it does suck having to be the one to have to move.... but at least now I don't pay rent, power, water, or any of that stuff. The wedding was cancelled (obviously), but its nice to look back on all the stuff I had planned and ideas I had. Maybe now I can take time to make it an even better wedding for if I ever get married in the future.
Now I can focus on my business and making it grow. My father is working hard on the website and what not. I got a confirmation email for St. Judes to say that they were willing to work with me and my business, now I just have to check on a few more things and it will be going great. I need to look for some craft fairs that I can sell at to help get my name more out there, and once things get better, then I will be opening an Etsy or something else.
I get to build up my savings account again and I don't really have to worry about too many bills. I just have my truck, my insurance, internet (being installed tomorrow), and my phone now, which is a SIGNIFICANT improvement over where I was this time last month.
I also don't have to drive very far to get to work. I don't have to drive from one end of post to well past the other end just to see some of my best friends. The Commissary and PX aren't very far from where I live (neither is Walmart and sometimes the prices are better at Wally World).
I can work more on my photography, since I have my own space to do whatever I want to in.
I can work more on my crafts outside of just the monsters. I can paint and crochet and stuff like that.
I won't be as stressed out and angry most of the time.
Life will just be simpler.
Hopefully I will have more time to get some crafting done. There are several new patterns I want to try, for some bags and stuff. I am still working on the monsters, both crocheted and sewn, as well as some other business related stuff. Once things settle down a little bit, it will be much easier for me. I am also working more with making the baby blankets as well. I have a lot of plans for the business and I can't wait to get started on them. I know I keep saying that, but now I will have more time, more energy, and more funds to get the ball rolling. I hope to have some stuff to show you all later on this month or next month.
I wont have internet until hopefully tomorrow. I really hope that they can get it installed in my barracks for me so I can use my own computer (I have to use my work computer or my phone right now)
Have a great Wednesday!
