Realizing just how lucky we are none of the kitties was injured when the ceilings fell. Something took a huge chunk out of a very solid desk. Also thankful for the Christmas dinner our neighbors brought over. It was the first real meal I'd had in a week, other than a piece of toast here, a banana there, etc. I know I was dropping weight. Lugging wet carpet and plaster is hard work, and I was burning way more than I could put in. Not to mention my body has been stuck in emergency/fight of flight mode just to get through. And the fact there is no insulation and it's the middle of winter with huge fans running didn't help., brrrrrr. My pants were fitting more loosely than before. But now I'm fed, and the weather is supposed to get a little bit warmer the next few days.

Two things today made me very happy first and foremost I am no longer a Necrolord after talking with my awesome guild, Vulpera United on Moon Guard, I switched and am now home with the Night Fae it seems to even come close to getting the pet Stitch it will take at least 20 weeks maybe more so it isn't a quick fix so while Stitch is a dream for now I am where I wanted to be. Just sucks I wasted all those resources with the Necrolords but alas live and learn just glad Night Fae accepted me after where I have been.

Second thing is I got me an external hard drive, Western Digital My Book with 6 TB of memory, it is one of the best out there after reading reviews and after having to buy a new computer which is now a gaming computer I needed more space. Now I can again have both WOW and ESO to play so I am set for gaming.

This is dating me, but Texas lowered the age limit for vaccines such that I qualify. I have an appointment this week for my first vaccine!

My friend who lost her cat could not get a cat at a shelter (STUPID danish rules) so she she had to go to a breeder.. in 8 weeks she gets a blue british shorthair male kitten. It´s uber cute and im glad for her.. just sad that she could not get to rescue a cat...

more happy stuff. Husband and I struggle economically and yesterday some of our congregation came with a gift certificate for some take away food from a restaurant. It was a real treat eating fancy food after almost a month of rice and sauce. It really cheered us up and helped us endure our struggle. Very thankfull for such friends :hug:

That’s great, on both counts! I’m sorry to hear you’ve had to eat so poorly though :(

We still ate and Ive learned to be thankful for that. We have less than 100 dollars a week for food, clothe, unforseen expanses, medicin, money to take bus/train etc. It's doable but husbands medicin prices just went up so it's been extra hard.
But in 3 months or so they go down again. In Denmark we get a %:of our medicin paid by the goverment but once a year it resets and until the price is down again then it's hard. Hubbys heart condition is permanent and he takes 13-28 pills a day plus his insulin for diabetes.
Normally I dont get discouraged about being "poor" but this year, the 11th of May is our 25 wedding annevesary and it's kinda of a big deal in Denmark. But we cant afford to celebrate and it's just been hard. Our friends arent rich either but they help where they can e.g with maybe some food, help with us afford our cat etc.
Im super thankful for that but sometimes I just wish I could go and buy what we need.
But trying to be grateful for what we got instead of being ungrateful for what we dont


Oki that was long. Phew ;)
