I might have done it. So I've told Jace and Quinn that I have rare gifts ready for Christmas (which, I actually do. A legit Megladon tooth necklace for Quinn and a collectors raptor claw for Jace) I took money out of my old savings account for them lol. They each have 15 strikes from now until Christmas to behave their best (take their meds when told, watch their language, NO FIGHTING, and no getting each other riled up on purpose) I know they'll have a few mess ups...okay a lot. lol With aspergers syndrome, I know half the time, they don't even think about consequences but I told them I'd sell these gifts in a heartbeat the second they get all of their strikes. I'm hoping this will teach them to think before acting. I know I'm taking a big risk with the price but I feel if they actually make it to Christmas with better behavior, they'll have earned them and when they look at them, maybe they'll remember what good behavior and thinking first got them. It will take a few dog training sessions to make up for the price but it's doable and if they fail, I'll have my money back. Either way, I'll get money and experience. :) ROFL oh my God, Jace just showed me his report card and said the chores he did for his grandmother!! XD This might just work!!

So, Zulu has now been returned to the breeder, who said she knew a woman that is very experienced with lovebirds and owns 20. They are all well cared for and Zulu will be joining them. In this flock are Zulu's own parents so she will know some of the birds there and hopefully make a new mate (R.I.P, Indi) Zulu left for Moncton this morning so I no longer have my birds with me. I'm already missing her chirping and I'll miss watching her and Myles play fight. No joke. They had a good 'match' last night and jumped around for a bit but she had to leave early this morning. It's just me and Myles again but that's just how the ball rolls sometimes. I'm still adjusting to life up here but I'm getting there. I went shopping with my mother the other day and wow. The closest...I don't even know if it's a town. 15 steps and you're on the other side. It's more like a village and there was a fire recently so for some reason, we have to use cash only for a while. I couldn't get to an ATM to get money out because it was 10 minutes away but luckily, mom had just enough to cover our little grocery run. I paid her back in gas money for the long trip back today though so we're even. It's crazy to think $35 was our grocery money for 11 people. Obviously, I have my 'DO NOT TOUCH' money that I have put away for the pets so they're 100% good to go at all times. I honestly think I have just as much stuff packed downstairs for the pets as I do for myself. lol I always say how angry I get when people return pets because they're louder than they thought or something and I was mad at myself at first but then I realized I wasn't just returning Zulu because I didn't study birds (lovebirds specifically). I had to return her because she wouldn't have enjoyed her life here. I didn't see such a big life change coming. No one could have. So I'm trying not to beat myself up over having to return her. My cousins are far too loud because of their aspergers (3 tantrums a day when their meds wear off) and she would get no where near enough socialization, even with me around. I felt she needed other birds to be with but I obviously couldn't afford another so I feel this was best. Plus, she is one tough cookie. She adapts amazingly to new surroundings so I'm sure she'll fit right in with her new flock. I still feel like I've been dropped on another planet or something but I'm trying to suck it up. My father, uncle, and brother will be leaving to work out west soon but if we're lucky, they might be here for Christmas. As I've said, they'll be gone for a few weeks and with my father's age, I worry for his health out there but we don't have much of a choice right now. I have a few presentations planned for doTERRA and though I won't have clients for a while, it's a start. I'll probably have a good cry today over Zulu but I'll keep reminding myself, it was for the best. I might fill a thermos with some tea or hot chocolate and take the dogs for a walk in the woods later to get my mind off things. Nature always makes me feel better so that's a plus.

Well, I'm at my aunt's now and we're bringing my stuff up here in trips. Zulu will be going to a woman the breeder trusts a lot and this woman also owns Zulu's parents. She will be leaving on Monday or Tuesday. I've only slept here one night and I've spent half the time crying. Normally I take things really well but everything's so out of my hands, it feels like I'm in a tornado and I don't know where it's gonna put me. I found out it will be months until I'll have clients for my massage therapy. For now, I won't be making any profit and will only be doing meetings and presentations as a doTERRA wellness consultant (yay for actually having a job title after 16 years) Plans keep changing and now we don't know if I'll be staying up here or not. I love my cousins but holy deep fried llama burgers, they're confrontational!!! They have aspergers too so I try not to judge but they have no control what so ever! I was taught to have some restraint but they curse like sailors at their parents and even my mother!! The older of the two is 12 so I'm not buying the whole "He's just a kid" argument. With or without aspergers, manners still exist, trust me. There are plenty of times I want to say completely rude or inappropriate things but I don't. My cousins haven't learned that. I'm used to quiet but they both have 2-3 'tantrums' a day. I know what it's like to have this illness scratching at your brain but they need to learn restrains or to let it out in more progressive and constructive ways. I know in a year or so things will look brighter but I've exhausted myself emotionally and mentally. I also found out the money I had put away for my glasses, my horse's board, and money to activate my phone again was spent. My mom needed it for groceries so I totally understand. I just have this feeling of hopelessness that I'm not used to. Does anyone have any advice on how I might deal with this, if you've experienced anything like this?

After everything that's happened I decided it couldn't wait any longer so today I signed up for my massage therapy business. I'll be receiving my 'Family Physician Kit' in a few days or so and be doing oral presentations on the doterra line of products. With social paranoia, PTSD, and anxiety it's going to be one hell of a big jump but there's no time for fear anymore. I'll be buying some business clothes to look the part, and writing out some notes to keep me focused on my presentations. The only real job I ever had was a paper route lol. My dog training is more of a hobby. Now I'm diving head first into the business world so I can get my life back to normal and start saving for Paradise! Gotta start showing my charisma more outwardly and use my assertiveness to my benefit in this business. Wish me luck!

So, we couldn't pay the power bill and our power could be shut off any day now and we don't know when. Since we don't want to be packing in the dark, we've grabbed numerous boxes and spent the day packing away. We still have a lot to do but we made a pretty big dent today! I've packed the pet supplies, my art stuff, most electronics, clothes, and some other randoms. I've made a small list so I'll be a bit more organized but that's about it. We couldn't afford moving services so my uncle will be making many trips with his truck to get our 3 story house's worth of stuff up to his place. O_O I'm tired after all that but it could have been worse. Gotta say, I'm sore as heck though lol The irony of being a part time massage therapist and needing one yourself. I've been playing k-pop and and dancing while packing so that's made it easier XD

grandpatoenail has started a donation pool!
250 / 150,000
So, I finally got Myles to the vet and he’s not in the best of shape, though the major issues are further down the line in his life. His heart murmur is still low because he’s so young but he has a light bacterial and fungal outbreak over his skin due to allergies I was unaware of. I bought a medicated shampoo while I was there so that is under control. The vet also told me contrary to popular belief, the surgery to fix his knee caps isn’t something to do later but something to prevent things like arthritis, which he is already showing signs of. He’s only 3 and a half. She doesn’t think he will live as long as most Maltese but I’d rather he have a short, comfortable life than a long, unhealthy one. Therefore, I’ve decided to get him his knee surgery as soon as I can. It is between $2000 and $2500 plus the money for him post-op wheelchair. As some of you know, I’m trying to get into the doTERRA business but for that I have to spend money to make money so handing over that much money right now is impossible. I’ve decided to ask for your help. If any of you would like to donate to help Myles get his surgery, please note me. Whether it 5 cents or a dollar, anything is a help.

You must be logged in to donate.

I love writing stories and drawing and my friend told me about DA so I couldn't help but make an account! It's kind of obvious I write a lot of yaoi too. :P My main hobby is cosplaying. It's tons of fun! I'm currently working on a Red XIII fursuit for the Animaritime. :) I also am working towards completing my goal of opening my own rescue ranch.
