Last night I slept with Janie. I hadn’t slept with a stuffie in some time, generally I fear ruining them in some way. But I thought Janie has been stored except for Christmas at her old home got many years now so I wanted her to be snuggled like a proper teddy. 🧸💕
Here’s a little snack I had today 👻 🥓
I love these socks that bought this afternoon at Five Below. I changed into them before going out this evening.
Mmm, gummies… you want some? They’re cola flavored 🥤 MoonPie is happy to share! 🌈 Got these at Five Below also.
In addition to socks, I found suspenders today. I never had any before. I had a chance to wear them since after my walk I was such an utter mess so I had to change to go out to dinner with Christopher.
Tomorrow we are having a morning out together, garage saling and brunch. I am so excited about it because it’s been such a long time! 💕🌈
Hey everyone. I’m sorry for being so quiet today. 😓 Things are ok hurricane-wise. The winds are supposed to start in about an hour and last throughout the night. I’m still in the library with the window open… it’s really calm. 😶
But PMS is hitting me as hard as it did last month. 😣 I’m in a horrible, HORRIBLE mood which is a real contrast to my usual. You see all the happy posts almost every day and most of the time I’m pretty happy, but my PMS can put me in a “I hate my life/body/everything/drawing isn’t fun/reading or gaming isn’t fun/anything I eat makes me feel guilty/wish I could sleep this away but I’m not sleepy” mood… and… it sucks. 😥 I feel almost violently angry so I stay by myself so my poor husband isn’t forced to deal with me since there is nothing he can do that will cheer me up.
I tried café con leche and cookies and I hated myself for eating them. But time with the ratties and reading Little Lulu made me feel marginally better. Anyway sorry for such a long whiny post. It’s just one of those days… 🌧️
Good morning, everyone ☀️ Not feeling so good today. My period/PMS are wrecking me, the hurricane is now cat 5 and seems to be turning our way again. Who the heck knows. Cat 5 hurricanes level neighborhoods, leave them like a war zone. I guess if that happens I really enjoyed not being poor the last 6 years. It was really nice. I’m grateful. Hopefully it spares us.
I’m trying not to let my thoughts get too dark, but hormones make it hard. I’m in the library/rat room and decided to have mate today. It’s been an awfully long time since I made mate just for me (well, and MoonPie.) Usually my mom brews it when she comes over. But I really need to get in the habit.
Ever since I moved the rat cage to the library I’ve been spending time with the rats every morning. Dorito is more cheerful today:
I’m a little worried about a scab under Croissant’s ear… there seems to be no lump, just minor scabbing but it won’t go away. I may have to text my vet a photo if it doesn’t go away. I really hope she doesn’t get a ZGT (if you don’t know what that is, google it —or don’t. It’s bad. Basically if she gets it I’ll have to have her put down pretty soon, because it’s an awful way to go.) I just don’t want to lose another rat so quickly, even though unlike Dorito here, Croissant is really unfriendly most of the time. But I still love her a lot.
I suppose time will tell. I’m glad Dorito seems a bit less lethargic. He doesn’t move a lot anyway, after all he is the same age Queso was, and has the same genes. His back legs drag. But he just seems happier today, and I’m glad for that.
Anyway, I still want to be cheerful today. Hurricane or not!
This morning I had breakfast in the library with my ratties 💕 I started my day with some chores and paying a little more debt. I’ve almost fully paid my husband up for Megaplex expenses, should be done at the start of September. I am pretty okay. The storm is a worry but what can we do, just prepare.
May I offer you a chonk to start your weekend. I love him…
I’m trying to give him a lot of attention now that his brother is gone. The girls aren’t very cuddly with him. So I’m making sure I fill that emptiness as much as I can.
One more scritch before I get on with the day. It’ll be alright little guy.
I have to admit I’m starting to become fond of this hairstyle which I used to really dislike. I never do anything with my hair at all. But I’m enjoying this. 🌈💕🙈
Also wearing one of my Littlespace necklaces again after a while. It is one of my favorites. I’ve used both of them so much the choker is stretched out, I probably ought to replace it soon.
For my afternoon snack I had some banana wafers and dark chocolate and consoled myself with MoonPie’s company.
This hurricane is looking REALLY shitty I guess? Lol. I really don’t want to die/have my pets die/lose all of my possessions. I’ve been trying to stay calm, but yeah. It’s looking bad.
Welcome MoonPie… you come with hugs on a pretty sad day, just in time. 🧸💕🌈
CW: Pet loss discussion below…
Anyway… I’m up… Tried to eat something. I cleaned Queso one more time since he peed overnight and just laid in it 😔 he is eating some Rice Krispies. I tried to have some breakfast… I’m not very hungry.
We leave around 8am to say goodbye.
Here we are having one last little cuddle before it’s time to go. He’s really barely there. But it could be a couple days of him suffering if we just leave him to pass on his own, and I don’t want that.
Updating this post now that it’s all over. 😞💔 I’m home now, to say I’m exhausted is a wild understatement. So I ate something and gonna take a nap with MoonPie.
I’m still going to try my best to have a decent day today but I may be unresponsive. Sorry in advance.
