Wow! It's been a while since I have updated this journal! In case anyone out there remembers me how about I update you on what I've been up to in the last few years.

To begin with I got a boyfriend. We've been dating for 2 and 1/2 years and are very much in love. Sometimes I can't stand to be around us because we can get rather lovey dovey.

The boyfriend has two dogs, Josie and Daisy who are really cool dogs. Daisy is a black and tan lab mix and Josie is a blue-tick coonhound mix.

In my world, Gypsy, my service dog, needs to retire :-(. She has some problems with her knees and the vet tells me that it's in her best interests to slow it down as soon as possible. So Gypsy is no longer doing many of the things I need help with. We are managing but I need to find another service dog soon.

To that end I contacted Phoenix Assistance Dogs and they have preliminarily matched me with a young dog named Cooper. I'll be driving down to them on Wednesday to meet him and see if we might be a match. If you want to follow what happens with us check us out over at Service Dog Cooper

I'm about half way to a BA in mathematics education. I'll be attending Southern Connecticut State University in the fall. My parents are helping me out by allowing me to stay in their house while I complete my education which is very nice of them, but very stressful for me.

I'm still reading and enjoying fandom and fanfiction, though I'm trying to find some good Valdemar fanfic and so far no luck. FFN has very little of any quality. I've been writing a bit (HP/Valdemar cross over) but I've not put anything together of any worth. I'm fairly certain that I won't be doing much active in facfic so I understand if many of you choose to unfriend me.

In the future when I update it will be mostly about my journey to a new service dog.

11th-Jul-2008 11:46 am - The Beach!
So Gypsy and I are heading off to the beach. We will be gone from tonight on to next Saturday (the 19th) and we will probably then spend the next few days back on the job search and trying to catch up with the world of fiction. Now everyone play nice and please don't let the world of writing go all splodie bits again!

If anyone posts any fic or reads anything, would you mind horribly posting a note here? I'm afraid I'm gonna miss something :-(.

11th-Apr-2008 01:24 am - RL Babbling and a Meme
So, it has come to my attention that i have been neglecting my journals.

Angsty RL Babbling about my Service DogCollapse )
Meme stolen from witchdragonCollapse )

I'm gonna try to keep up with my journal more. Hopefully I can post some recs soon and maybe I’ll have a bit of fic to share. Maybe.

I was wondering if anyone out there is at all interested in some of my dog stories that I have been writing about my time as an ACO and in animal rescue stuff.
11th-Dec-2007 07:51 am - Holiday Cards!
So I have finished my Holiday Cards, and I was wondering if anyone on my F-List would like me to send them one. Comments are screened, please comment with your address before December 13th to get a card!
27th-Jul-2007 01:40 pm - Gypsy!
woot! Gypsy's Service Dog vest arrived today! I am so excited! This is the culmination of well over a year's worth of training and frustration. Not to mention the vindictive "nya nya" to my folks.

My dad has been against this exercise since the beginning. He believes I just need to get over myself and all that rather than rely on a crutch like my dog. He also wants Gypsy GONE from the house. He HATES having animals in the house. I kinda agree with him on the first point (not on the gypsy being gone point). I do really just need to get over myself and move on, but training Gypsy has been one of the things that helped move me along to getting better. And I really do relax more when she is with me, which prevents so many problems. Gypsy, my anti-drug! ::snickers::

Last night Dad had his friends over to play poker (Mom was in NJ last night and today) and he turned to one of his buddies and said, "We are all proud of Gypsy. She finished her Service Dog training this past week." And then he showed him her paperwork! I was just about fit to burst with happiness. ::snuggles daddy:: He can act like such a bastard sometimes, but then he turns around and does shit like this and I just have to love all over him.

And now some pictures of GypsyCollapse )

So today is like the bestest best day every to be! No really! Many of you may not know, but my dog Gypsy (the one in the icon) and I have been training for quite some time now for her to become my service dog. Today she FINALLY passed all her tests and is now a certified service dog. WOOOHOOO

So yea, this is the best news i have had in ages and i just wanted to share . . .

and to stay on topic, I both am frightened and can't wait to read DH. It should be here soon. I hope.

Go Severus. Live!

And in other news, still no life, no job and no fic. But my dog is certified. Life is good.
24th-Apr-2007 04:50 am - how much my life sucks
So . . . In the course of a normal day i often go outside to read and smoke as I find smoking inside to be rather offensive (not to mention the nasty yellow film that gets all over everything). Typicly I sit out in the garrage, and as the door into the garage is never locked this works well.

I think you can see where this is going.

I also suffer from insomnia. So this morning at one am I headed down the stairs and outside. I firmly shut the door behind me, sat down with my laptop and enjoyed a fine cigarette while reading a fic. Imagine my horror when i realized that the door was locked! Being a resourceful person I headed around the house and checked all the doors and windows I could reach. Locked up tigheter than Fort Nox!

Well now, four hours and half a pack later, I am still locked out of the house and my father chose today of all days to sleep in. Usually he is up around four-ish. But not today. No. Today I am stuck outside and damned thankful that it is reasonably warm as I am in my pajamas and I have no slippers on. Fortunitly I did not lock my car yesterday and was able to retrieve my lap blanket to curl up under.

Now, if I could just find some Snarry forced bonding fics with plenty of angst and a nice happy ending this just might not be so bad.

ETA: It is now 5:30am, and my father finally came downstairs and let me in. I am most happy and am now going to bed.
