Little Wrap-Up Of The Day 😴

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! 💕🌈

Outing With Chips Ahoy 🐼🌈

I wasn’t doing well at all mental health wise today, so I decided to try to go out for a while to the park. Just take myself in hand and at least make an effort to feel better. I started by prepping a “Little” outfit:

As some of you might notice, this is actually Chips Ahoy 2.0. During my vast purge, the original Chips Ahoy was rehomed. But I was very, very fond of the name that was originally suggested by Flen. I promised myself I would call my next panda that. Anyway here he is with my TamagotchiOn and ready for Funky Sock Friday. 🧸💕🌈

So I actually ended up going round this entire massive park in 100° heat with no water because the exit I was going to at the other end of the park was closed so I had to find the main entrance again. I think I came fairly close to heat stroke but hey! I made it out safely, and got some nice photos. 

I found a more secluded spot to take a couple photos of myself, but at this point I was already dying lol 💀💦

I found two playgrounds but no swings! Hmph. But I was able to get some cute pictures of Chips Ahoy. Thankfully he’s very fuzzy otherwise his bum would have burned. Everything was hot enough to fry eggs! 🔥

I will tell you it’s a lot harder to think of fun selfie captions when you’re depressed. Like. Here’s my face. I’m smiling. I don’t really feel like it, but there it is, because I’m not gonna take a sad emo selfie. Lol. Well, I’m not magically feeling better but at least I made an effort to go out and I’m proud of myself for that. I am also very very sweaty. Oh god. So sweaty.

And here we are! Listening to music and drawing and having a pumpkin spice Frappuccino and a feta and spinach pretzel. 🎃🥨

When I get tired I’ll head home and hop in the shower. Do I feel better? I don’t know. Maybe? I’m sweaty and tired, I guess that’s a distraction at least.

I Can’t Always Be Happy, But I’m Trying 🌞✌

Madeline says, good morning! 🌞

I woke up around 6am today when Christopher went downstairs for painkillers for his headache. He felt bad for waking me up but I was very glad (not about his headache lol) because I have wanted to be up earlier for some time, so I can go out and cheer up a little.

To be honest I’ve been feeling a little lonesome and depressed. 😞 I want to invite friends over but the house is really dirty… I’ve made a decision to have a cleaning service because with commissions, 4 cats, and 3 rats, and how massive this house is (2400 square feet 2 story with a million stupid trinkets) it’s absolutely discouraging. 😩 It can take me 2-3 days to clean it and I have to stop from sheer exhaustion. I don’t even get it fully up to scratch. So I’d rather draw for 2 days and pay someone else to come do it. 🤷‍♀️

Yesterday I finished paying Christopher off for Megaplex expenses so now I’m saving the money for the cleaning. Then I can invite friends over without being embarrassed. Ah, that good ol’ Latin woman guilt about the house…! 😅 It’s also what kept me from hiring someone all this time. I’m supposed to be good at this right?? That’s some sort of self-racism right there… but these stereotypes are hard to shake off. I can’t cook, either. Lol.

Because today I got up so early, the rats were still active and excited. It was nice to see them so perky. I watched the sunrise from my window… now it’s time to start my day.

Soon after I got ready to head out to Dollar Tree 🌳 and do some grocery shopping. This is hands down my favorite pair of overalls currently!

You couldn’t see my socks but they are decently cute too:

Also, I love this bracelet so freaking much!! myrcurystoybox gave it to me at Megaplex last August. It’s one of my favorites!

While out and about, I noticed Spirit Halloween is getting ready to open! 🎃 🍁 🍂🕸🕷🦇 I can hardly wait.

My local Publix had an ecstatic Cookie Monster piñata surrounded by cookies for their BOGO deal of the week! 🍪 It was pretty funny.

I’ve been trying my best to stay cheerful and work really hard.💕🌈🧸

I thought I got the cats a seasonal toy, but it’s a condor, not a turkey. 🦃 It’s pretty funny looking, though:

Post shopping snack. ☕️ 🍪 My mood has been all over the place… Already said it, but, I can’t wait to have the house cleaned so I can decorate and then invite some friends over. I think that will do me good.

Tomoyo kept me company. To call Tomoyo a handful would be the understatement of the year. But I still love her very much.

In other news, Jane, as her original owner had named, arrived today. I tweaked that name slightly —for me, she’ll be Janie. She seemed to have a slightly smell, maybe cigarettes I don’t know, thankfully it was SUPER faint but I’m very sensitive to those, so I febreezed her and left her in the hot Florida sun a few hours. Good as new!

I had the shirt and bow and made the necklace, her owner sent me the little pinafore. I think Janie looks very happy in her new home!

She looks very much like a koala to me 🐨 So that’s what I think her as being.

Sad, Stressed, but I’m Trying My Best ✌

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!

I’m going to do my best! 🧸 🌈💕🎀

Hurricane Update!

Morning everyone ☀️💕 It seems to be moving a little away from us, but we can’t let our guard down at all. If you are in FL, you shouldn’t either, especially if you’re on the side this MONSTER storm is hitting. I am. So we have to continue to be prepared. We will still likely lose power. I will keep everyone updated as much as I can.

That aside… here’s my outfit for today:

Even if it doesn’t hit us directly, big storms are still scary no matter what… I don’t even like regular storms when there’s lots of lighting. 😱 In the meantime I’m keeping myself cheerful!

Goodbye, Queso… 💔

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.

Clown Socks 🤡

‪Wore happy socks to cheer myself up, I think Ricky approves 🌈💕💖🐯‬

We are having some very hard days… If Queso doesn’t pass today we may just have to take him in tomorrow to help him along. Considered doing it today, but my vet isn’t there. So it’s a really difficult time.

‪I’m smiling here, but honestly super stressed 🐿️💦

With the storm coming I had to rush and get some supplies before everything goes really nuts 😱‬ But I still dressed cute.

Poshmark Finds! ✨

HOLY CRAP… ok Poshmark is fantastic! I’d been looking for these skirtalls which quickly sold out at Hot Topic. They were on Poshmark brand new with tags for $15. Down from like $45! I had no idea if they would fit me well, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Second purchase from the same site, in my absolute favorite shade of pink:

These are gonna get an iron on patch! I love them!! There is officially nothing in my wardrobe I can’t combine now. These last few overalls made it so I could use 40% more of what I own. I’ll be able to dress Little every day! I’m so happy 🙈🌈💕💖

I’m Ready To Go! 🎀✨

I’m ready to head out to eat French noms!! And feeling cute, though not *quite* as “Little” today.

I kinda feel a need to apologize for all the recent selfies and “outfit of the day” photos… 🙈💦 To be quite honest, until sort of recently I’ve never been a very selfie-positive person, self-love isn’t something that I was great at when I was younger. Thankfully that has changed a lot. Believe it or not a lot of the times I post these photos I’m forcing myself, it does make me feel a bit vulnerable, all through middle and high school I refused to let anyone take my photo because I hated my smile. But the response I get when posting does make me happy, it gives me more self confidence, I slouch less, I put more and more effort into my appearance.

Seeing and commenting and liking other people’s selfies is a happy activity for me as well. Let’s all love one another and ourselves too! 💕🌈💖
