It's hard being around people who are like "oh the fish will be fine" when I fuss over them. More than once I've had to beg my husband to take me to Petco to get water tested because I had a feeling something was wrong. When the ammonia came back high I was rubbing it in his face. Now he listens to me

So you have a sixth sense for ammonia? hahaha XD

They can scoff all they want, but at least we have the satisfaction of knowing we're right :P

I think the comet was like tilting a bit or doing something funny xD

I love being right (who doesn't?). But I'm glad when I can convince someone that proper care isn't that hard and just cause they're fish doesn't mean they deserve any less.

Thanks!!! :D it feels truly amazing to actually have my life back now. I never realized how imprisoned I was by everything until I got off of it all. Now I can actually enjoy my life and it's wonderful!

I hear ya about us fussing over our babies!!! my fiance once said to me that I spend more time with them than I do with him! Haha

In 2013 I will be:
-Starting my second year in Renewable Energy and Conservation program for college.(online)
-Save up for a downpayment on land or a house or both, (might build instead though)
- Plan our wedding for the year after
-Expecting our first child in September ish
- Train my miniature horse gelding to drive a buggy
- still enjoy life because we all are still here :p
- Birthdays
-10 gallon planted tank for my two current boys and another tank for my dream betta I really really want
-Researching and planning on breeding and have a betta room in our house when it happens

And probably more stuff but that will come with time :)
