Staying Home.

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 22, 2014, 9:29 AM

The only really good news I have to partake is that we did not lose our home. We are still waiting for final settlements, but there is no more threats standing in the way. And at a good time, I must say. We put a lot of things around the home on hold because we were uncertain if we were going to stay or not, but now that we know we won't be going anywhere, we can start with the normal "spring cleaning" and all that. I'm much relieved by that.

But of course, one good things happen, bad things also come after. Mine has been a perpetual struggle, though, and that is what goes on with work. Again, at least for the next three weeks, my hours have been greatly cut. My paychecks will be very poor for a little, which means very minimal on the spending. I suppose that'll be even more of a reason to get things I want to sell up and hopefully out of my house. We are also having many of our good managers making leave of our store. Only thing we can hope is we get good ones coming in for replacements, but it's still very disheartening. I'm hoping to get something straightened out before my most favorite manager leaves. He is the only one I ever had that actually gave a shit about what I did and always found a way to get me more hours when I needed it.

Again, though, I am just leaving a personal journal entry, nothing of the sort involving my dolls and such. They are back home, though, of course. With everything else. It's nice to have it all in place again. I do hope to get pictures again of them soon, weather permitting. It has been lovely out, but at the same time a little too chilly yet for me to be out there long enough to try and get some shots.

To those of you who read the journals and actually have been supportive, thank you. I am really hoping to get things running on here again, and I do hope I can.

And thanks, Aoi-kajin for being some major support pretty much every day when I was going through all this crap. Really does mean a lot to me. I don't want to know how depressed I would've been if I didn't have you to talk to or distract me when it was really needed.

Hey Foxy Loxy (or whatever name you prefer).

Hope you're doing well, and that things are looking up for you finally. Just wanted to stop by and say you're still remembered and missed. ^_^

Lol, I find that a cute name. :heart:

Thank you for thinking of me and wondering how I am, though! Things are alright, just a lot of stuff going on. Work has actually been giving me more hours, and it's been tiring me out. But things are beginning to improve at least and I'm hoping to get myself back onto here soon!

Glad you like it ;D

Also, of course I think of you! You're an awesome person with super cool art! Exclamation point triad!
I'm glad to hear about more hours for you though =D I know that was a big thing for a long time for you. And no matter how long it takes, just so long as you eventually make it back both I and the rest of your adoring fanbase will be waiting ;)
