So... I vanished for awhile. Things've been tough around here, and I just needed to get away. March 3rd was my dad's birthday, which was pretty hard. My brother took the day off of school, and I wanted to, but just couldn't do it. April 4th is the one year anniversary of my dad's death, which is REALLY tough. It doesn't help at all that that's Easter, one of the days that was the special "dad and me" time. Then, this Saturday we're finally burying him, which will probably be the toughest thing since the funeral. Through all of this, we've been fixing up his house, trying to sell it. We had someone seriously consider it, and if they could sell their house they were going to buy it, but their house didn't sell, so we're back to square one. About two weeks ago the trimester ended at school, so finals kept me away then.... I don't get on the computer much these days, usually just to check up on friends and family and to do schoolwork.
Now, onto the fish updates- everyone is still alive, including Vulcan. Everyone seems really lethargic though, and I'm scared that I'm going to lose Deimos any day now. Almost all of the bettas have finrot, despite my attempts to keep everyone going. These days, I've been thinking that I'll probably have to find a new home for a couple, since schoolwork and just plain life have been making it extremely difficult to give them all the care they need. It's all just wearing down on me =/
NOW, last of all, the "Raek" in my signature is still Spitfire, his name has just been changed, since he grew out of his old name (: He's not jumpy anymore, and I actually take him on walks when the weather is nice!
Thanks for reading (:
AND! I just realized I probably posted this in the wrong forum T-T. Please don't kill me.
