I haven't been around here much lately, I know. It's just, things in my real life have been taking up my time. We're looking for a new place to live, we don't feel safe here anymore, not that I've ever really felt safe here.. But yeah, that's been taking up my time. That, and focusing on my family problems. my aunt went in for surgery last Friday, and my sister-in-law, we're still waiting to see what's wrong with her. While they do say that she doesn't have lupus, which is really great news, they think it may be fibromyalgia, though they aren't really certain. So, things have been a bit rough lately.
I wish to apologize to both my covens, I hold ACM in both and I've been doing my CMs a grave disservice by not doing the jobs that they've entrusted to me. Plus, I've been slacking on the duties Cancer entrusted in me as well when he appointed me as a Dominar.
And, talking about Covens.. I think I'll be stepping out of EW. I want to go back to what I created, back to my little Masque. I've left Matthew on his own for far too long.
So yeah, I'm hoping things will stable out a bit so I can be more active around here. But, I don't think that'll happen until we find a new place to live, and that may take some time.
I think you'll recall that the entire emphasis of our Coven is in real world pursuits, not in arm-chair philosophy. You do us no disservice by taking care of what needs to be taken care of. Indeed, in doing so and not merely folding to circumstance you are exemplary in your position and of our philosophy.
Take all the time you need. The rest of us have busy lives too, and we'll all still be here when you're a little more settled.
Wow.. this birthday was definitely an interesting one. First, let me once again thank MrD and all those who replied to the birthday thread he started for me. And, also to the tons of messages I got from all of you. I'll get back to you all as soon as I'm able. :)
So, this birthday will always be remembered as the day my brother and sister-in-law brought their bad news. Let's start with Kevin first.. He's getting fired tomorrow. Apparently the security company he's been working for is just out to get him, they don't like the fact that he's a Marine Reserves, and has to have one weekend off each month. Nevermind that he disclosed all this information on his application, and during the interview before they hired him. So, he's going to be talking to the Labor union people about the legality of his company's actions and actions he may be able to take.
Next, Liz.. She may have lupus. She went in for testing today, and something came up positive, so they'll be doing more testing to be sure. It would explain a lot of her symptoms she's been having lately. It just.. it sucks, to be honest. If she does have it, she'll have to change her entire lifestyle, she may not be able to work, and pregnancy will be high risk for her. We're hoping that she doesn't have it, but only the tests will tell.
So yeah.. fun day for me and my family.
And now.. an awesome CXS song.. Birthday.
MrD is seriously awesome, I swear. He started a very nice birthday thread for me in the forum. So, thanks to him and to all the wonderful people who responded! :)
Now I'm off to visit some family and remind them that I was brought into this world twenty-two years ago and that I demand money. Or, at least a few hours of fun and laughter spent with the people who love me.
