Sooo So So Long!!!

I apologize to EVERYONE about Wish List Wednesdays, Themed Bakers Sunday, and my baking! My husband and I have been going through a rough patch. I'm sure you don't want read about it, but I'm going to vent a bit.
My husband is in the air force, a first class airmen, so brand new basically. He WAS Air Traffic Control, but he sadly has to be cross trained, meaning he has to go back to tech school to learn something else. Mostly my husbands decision, I don't want him to be miserable in a sub par job, but still... Him going back to tech school means we have to get re-stationed somewhere else! We've only been here since October of 2010. Before that I was in Mississippi for 3 months and before that Spokane (where my family is). I kind of just want to be somewhere at least for 2-3 years!
We don't know when or where he is going and we don't even know what his career will be to due to paper work.
Also, we have the worst neighbors in the world and they keep calling Soaring Heights (company we rent from  on base) to try to get rid of my dog. My dog, Triskit, was abused, he doesn't like strangers. He barks at them when he sees them in the back yard and I yell at him and he's getting better but not apparently to them.
He's gotten out a few times trying to explore and always sticks around the house and instead of calling us (which they have our number) they call security forces. Triskit was not harming anyone. Just sniffing here and there. Anyway, this part is a huge long story that I don't want to get into. All I'm going to say is that when they last called them they said I tied them up in the back yard (Not allowed on base) which I would never do to my dogs, especially if they have a fenced in yard to run around in!!! Also, once they got out of the patio and I'm 95% sure someone let them out. Not pointing fingers, but there was no way my dogs can get out unless they magically opened up the gate!

So, good news --> I started my own at home business!!! Sew N Tell  is my business, where I sew purses mostly, but clutches, pouches, aprons, anything and everything I can think of basically!! Please please please like my page and check out my things!! Here are some of the things I make!!





I do try to bake when I can though! It's just getting to post them is the tough part!!! I'm not giving up on my passion for baking or cooking, I just needed to keep myself busy whilst making some money as well. I tried having my own at home bakery, but there would have been a lot of hoops I would have had to have gone through and wouldn't have been worth it if I am leaving soon.

I hope that there are still a few people who care about my blog and that will read this. If you do, please leave me some kind of comment to motivate me to post more things on my blog, just so I know that SOMEONE is out there!

I was wondering where Themed Baker's Sunday went! ;) I'm sorry to hear about your recent troubles, what awful neighbors. My family used to have neighbors like that and they called the cops on our CAT! A cat, can you believe that? So I completely understand what you're going through with that. But know that the blog world is here to support and we can't wait to get back to your linky parties!

Hi.
Just wanted to encourage you that there are others struggling. I came by to link up to TBS and was sorry that you didn't have it.

We have our own issues. I am struggling w/ medical issues and my oldest has a form of autism and our house is a complete mess w/ trying to save money, cook whole foods and mom trying not to do everything b/c that's how I got in this mess (part of it at least). Then my USB port on my new computer died and now I've lost thousands of emails. I have no idea if I'll be able to recover them.

And of course, there is more.....

Keep reminding yourself that all of this happens for a reason. Nothing is a surprise to God.

Try to think of your blessings and keep doing the next thing.

Take care ....
