I probably should have posted a journal on Monday, my ACTUAL birthday, but eh..details. Been having a pretty stressful time lately, but I'll try to focus on the positives here.
I'm now seeing a psychologist; he's really cool and nice and I don't feel like he's ripping us off, as well. In fact, on a few occasions he's offered to either waive the fee because he was late (that happened just once), or give us a bigger discount because he knows we're poor.
We discovered on the first session, accidentally I might add, that we share very similar religious values~ It's not something we discuss much, if at all, during the sessions, but it helps establish an understanding and some level of comfort.
I've been staying with my dad and grandparents for several weeks now, I suppose until my fiance and I can move into our own place, and we finally got my ferrets moved in a few days ago!!
I got a third ferret a couple weeks ago, and the three of them are getting along extremely well! Artemis (my D.E.W. boy) and Galadriel (my chocolate sable girl) are acting like parents and best friends with the 'baby'. I decided to name her Khaleesi after the Mother of Dragons from Game of Thrones!
She's a marked white, and her full name is *takes a deep breath* Khaleesi Daenerys Stormborn Moonstar Targaryen! o___O (the 'Moonstar' part is named after a dear friend of mine, whom I met in high school! :> )
Artemis is the big, calm, derpy one! He has no concept of edges, and is a little clumsy, but a TOTAL sweetheart!!
He doesn't hiss, he sometimes dooks, he doesn't give kisses, but he puts up with mine.
Galadriel had a lot of attitude when I first got her, and she has a heart murmur. Lately, though, since I changed their food to a chicken diet, she looks like she's grown a little! :0 Her fur is thicker and more plush, and she seems happier overall. She turned 3yrs old this February, and my birthday was her anniversary being my ferret!
Khaleesi, or Daenny as my fiance likes to call her, is a feisty little thing!! At the store she was always so calm and sweet, but she's a little fireball at home! xD She's a little monkey the way she climbs, and she has LIGHTNING fast reflexes!! And she has a PASSION for biting shoes AND toes...>__>; She is a bit nippy overall, but it's hard to teach her otherwise. Thankfully I have my two "senior" ferrets to help keep her under control! They are all just adorable the way they stick together and play, though! ^^- I hear a lot of loud, happy dooking (if only I knew which one it was!)
My father, fiance, and I went to Provino's for my birthday dinner; people eat for free on their birthday, provided they show ID (luckily I had mine on me! xD I always forget...). I ordered a MOST delicious chicken and broccoli alfredo dish, with angel hair pasta instead of fettuccine. (I didn't mind having fettuccine, but angel hair is my favorite, so my dear fiance insisted! xD) I got a lovely spumoni for dessert with a candle sticking out the top!
Dad had to keep reminding me to blow it out, because I was just merrily eating away, not realizing that the candle was burning super fast. I don't care if the wax IS edible, I don't WANT to eat it!
I've been really interested in sewing lately, but (as some of you may know), I am NOT a seamstress!!! ;___; What sewing I HAVE done has been by hand, which is fun and something I can respect, but I desperately need to learn how to use a sewing machine. My in-laws bought me one on sale for my birthday, and I'm looking up tutorials and stuff before I start. xD I HATE bobbins..........they're evil. When I get the hang of it (IF I get the hang of it), I'll start making some stuffed animals for myself, and maybe some cosplay pieces; who knows?
(in my dreams...)
Oh, also, I got some more resin stuff to add to my kit. I already had the molds and the opaque resin, now I have some clear resin and I'm waiting on the dye before I 'go to town', so to speak. I would LOVE to make cosplay ACCESSORIES, at the very least!!
Wish me luck, guys!
