I am back, never having finished the wardrobe I started at the beginning of the year because in March we got news of our next assignment. Sort of. For a while, it looked like it wouldn’t happen, and then they were talking about another assignment, and so I never really wanted to write about it here in case I jinxed it. But now it’s for real – all our stuff is packed in shipping crates and on its way to Guam.
Guam! Do you know where that is? I didn’t. Or at least not until I looked it up. A tiny island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Tiny. Island. Surrounded by lots of water. That should be interesting, hehe. Tropical weather, too. When were researching the place, we learned that it has summer temperatures year round, the record low being 65F and record high 95F. High humidity but that’s not a problem for us.
Anyway, since February I did some sewing and embroidery but not with any plan in mind. I also recently bought a cutting machine so I’m learning about that now. And I finally did some housekeeping on this blog – I had started working on it early this year and got bogged down in themes and pictures and whatnot. After I resigned from my job this summer to focus on getting ready for this move, I had more mental space to deal with everything else and so my blog finally got a new theme. I’m still learning how to make decent pictures for you.
Right now, I’m practicing making graphics for posts about military moves. A friend recently asked me about our process for handling the frequent moves and I realized I actually had a lot to say about the subject. So, since I have plenty of time on my hands and it will be a few months before my sewing studio is back up and running, I’m going to write a series of posts dealing with military moves. If you’re here to read about sewing, feel free to skip them but if you know a military wife who could benefit from reading about this, please point her in my direction.
See you soon!
