I read the link that Kerry sent, moved my reflector and light and tried again:
flash is about 10'ish feet away...overexposed.
2.my assumption is the power is too low for being so far...underexposed
3. I then changed the aperture
I think I'm getting close with these 3...
7. and a labelled pull back of my livign room when i do indoor sessions. i'm still trying to figure out how i'll be able to move around with the flash in that positon with a beanbag or other subjects in the way
These do look better. The shadows aren't as harsh! Good job!

4,5 and 6 look great for lighting! Looks like 1/8 power was the magic #?

I'd say you certainly found your sweet spot! I really like that crimson background. WTG for using it w/out big color casts!
looks like 1/8th is it for you!!! I still haven't figured out how to use my speedlite manually. but I haven't invested the time in that either. it's high on my list of things to do.

You're getting more practice in with yours than I have with mine, WTG!!!
I found that about 1/8th power was good for a close position, too. I moved it up to 1/4 power when I moved it further away.
