Happy Monday! I wasn’t exactly sure how this week would turn out considering I had a bad flare-up over the weekend but this week is starting on a great note! As per usual, no actual plans for the week. I’m considering taking up playing New Leaf again, New Horizons just doesn’t hit that Animal Crossing spot for me anymore. It’s more like a decorating game than an Animal Crossing game. I’d like to be friends with my villagers again and feel excited to play every day. I’ve bought a 3ds charger and I’d also like to spruce my 3ds itself up if I can. Figure out how hacking works and give myself fun custom themes and things.
Not too long after I got up for the day a package came from me! Birthday gifts from my dear friend Marina. She always sends me the most amazing things. The Moomins especially were a massive surprise. I cried when I opened up the giant one. I am so lucky to have such a special gift from a special friend. Here are some close up pictures of the gifts she gave me.
I’m not in the habit of taking pictures of my food but my lunch today looked very “little” and happy so I wanted to take a picture of it. I’d like to start looking into maybe making lunches ahead of time, so I can have something nice that isn’t just a sandwich. If you have any suggestions please feel free to comment them! Do note I am an extremely picky eater though 😅
Today must have just been my mail day! My Squishmallow keychain came in the mail. I’d really like to get myself and Eli some more. I’m in the process of making a “dreamies” / ISO list for them. Technically I have 3 including the clip, but my very first is still stuck in Canada. I probably won’t get him again for a good few years.
I managed to find the time to finish this Star Wars coloring I had started a few days earlier. This is from a set of coloring pages my friend Beth got me for my birthday. As you can see the paper is a bit of a weird texutre, it doesn’t take to crayons very well which is why it looks so chunky. The wax just seems to stick ontop of eachother.
I get two days off a week, which is the weekend. Saturdays I get to spend with Eli but on Sunday I’m alone. If I have the energy to I think I might start dedicating Sundays to helping clean, which usually takes me a long time just for a little bit.
I’ve gotten into a “spring cleaning” headspace right now. Where I want to de-clutter and get rid of some things. I dedicated an hour last night to tidying up my craft cart and organizing things within it.
One of the things Eli gave me for my birthday was this binder with a few printed out coloring pages inside. I decided that I’d use this binder to hold all of my coloring pages in! So instead of keeping coloring books, I will take the pages I like out of them and get rid of the rest. That way it saves a lot of space and bulk. So far I’ve only gone through the coloring books I have downstairs but I do plan to also look through some of the ones stored upstairs too.
I took the time to organize and go through my craft cart yesterday which surprisingly took an hour to do. But I’m super happy with the outcome! The top holds my crayons, markers, Nintendo Switch, Switch controller, and my Tamagotchi. The second layer is my coloring books & coloring pages. The final layer holds my journal, a horse activity book, my washi tape, a craft tin, my stickers, my stim bag, and the bag I use to carry around my Tamagotchi.
I had a few tins lying around that I wasn’t using for anything, I dedicated the first one to “random” craft supplies that didn’t have a home.
I’m using this Paw Patrol tin to hold all of my stickers in! Stickers were another bulky thing that I had. A really smart way to cut them down and not loose any was cutting the ones I hadn’t used yet already out of an almost empty sheet. It saves a lot of space!
The day is not over and I’ve already had a really good Monday!! I’m excited for Eli to get home tonight. I still haven’t completed all my work for the day but there are some other things I’d like to do tonight too. Have a bath, play Fortnite, then I’ll see what else!
Here’s some goals I’d like to accomplish this week:
❤️ Start trying to plan out a schedule, certain time I go to bed, certain time I wake up, when I go to work, when I have lunch, ect. Just figure out how I can better manage my time so I don’t feel like I’m constantly working.
🧡 Research ideas on different lunches that I can have
💛 Ride my bike / get it properly set up
💚 Get bike cushion & stand
💙 Research more about 3ds things. How I can decorate it, how to get custom homescreen, ect
💜 Look into “baby-fying” tablet
❤️ Maybe? Make an adoptable for some extra money
