My weekend begun with a Seahawks preseason game Friday night. Yes I know they were not playing their top players but it was still a tough game to watch. The universe decided to do me a favor and with only the 4th quarter left, my power went out. With nothing else to do because I could not use my phone data to watch the rest of the game, I went to bed!
Saturday I wanted to get started on some of my cleaning. I’ve been thinking about switching to natural products for some time but have always been to scared to switch. It doesn’t really have anything to do with cost as much as what chemicals I’m using and what if I ruin something! Saturday I decided to try out 50/50 Distilled White Vinegar and water on my entry way. I added a few drops of Sweet Orange essential oil to help with the smell. Cleaning wise, it pretty much is like most store bought stuff. My entry way is a bitch to clean because it’s not smooth, the dirt can build up in sections. I’m going to have to really scrub at it to get it clean no matter what I use but this was a cheap and chemical free way to clean. Next up I’m going to experiment with carpet cleaners.
I went through all of my CDs and separated them into keep, sell/donate and download piles. I need to figured out if my sell pile is even worth anything to anyone and I need to get an external drive for my music. I currently don’t have anything to back up my music on and I don’t want to use a cloud storage. Oh and I even found a cassette tape I used to listen to ALL THE TIME when I was in Elementary school. After the sorting I left to meet up with my friend A. We had planned on going to see a free movie in the park but it had rained that morning and dark clouds were rolling in. We decided to stay home and pick up some Redbox movies, since I had a few free codes and have tacos for dinner. Pretty fantastic end to the day even if we didn’t get to do what we have originally planned.
Sunday was a completely lazy day. I started a new game in Skyrim. I have not played this game in forever and had a blast starting up again. I think I put a load in the dishwasher, other than that I think I played Skyrim all day! Oh and the best part about this last Sunday, the SOUNDERS WON! We had new players play, we had Oba back and all the players seemed to be on top of their game. It was fantastic!

I’ve been a little preoccupied lately and forgot to do a blog post. I even forgot to send a mother’s day card. I did call her, I’m not a bad daughter! I made up for it though. I sent a mother’s and father’s day card with an AMC theater gift card for a movie date night. I think that will do. 🙂
So what’s keeping me busy? Honestly it’s cleaning but I set myself up for some trouble. I need to read like 5 books in the next 2 weeks and have been attempting to minimalize my home. I also just celebrated my 30th birthday, that has been weighing on me and I’m going on a mini vacation at the end of the month. Just a lot happening for me this month and while I know I need to start cleaning up my life sooner rather than later, it’s just kind of catching up to me.
On Saturday my friend and I did dinner and a movie. We do this every year for my birthday and with all the amazing movies that come out in May, seeing a good one is easy. Now I’m a planner, not sure if you have picked up on that while reading this blog but I am. I decided on a time and place to meet my friend. I was running late so she ran in to buy the movie tickets before we went to IKEA. I KNOW when I checked online the movie was playing at the theater but turns out, it was not. Apparently the theater didn’t get the movie and had lots of people trying to see the movie there. The nice attendant told my friend that the movie was playing down the street but it’s earlier than we wanted. We run over to the other theater and buy our tickets and end up skipping IKEA. Totally bummed out because I love IKEA. So my friend and I walk into the theater and this is what we see, not a single person there.
We went to see Pitch Perfect 2 on a Saturday on its opening weekend. This is an older theater but the new theater was not even playing the movie, what is going on! Well as soon as we sat down, the theater started filling up. My theory, everyone went to the new theater first, because online it said they had it and when it was not showing they were told to go down the street to this one! Fantastic movie by the way, not as great as the first but still fantastic.
I hope to have an updated blog post for my Battling Chaos series soon but it’s taking some time and I’ve run into some problems. Here is the before picture, see what I have to work with!

I’ve felt like crud all week but I’m very happy it’s Friday! I don’t have any super duper fun plans this weekend but I do have fun things to do. 🙂 I really hope I feel better by tomorrow night because I don’t want to have to bail on movie night with my friend. We’ve tried getting Into the Woods for a few weeks now and all the Redbox’s around her have been out, total bummer I know. I don’t live close to her so this week I’m going to see if I can find it down where I live. If all else fails we are going to watch the Justin Bieber roast. She recorded it and I’ve heard they are really mean to him. Either way we should have an entertaining night.
I also started playing a new game. My friend got me a Beta key code for Heroes of the Storm and I started playing it on Wednesday. I’m having so much fun learning the game and playing that it’s almost made me feel much better even with the crud I have.
