The madre called me on skype totally out of the blue today, and we chattered for most of the afternoon.
Since she lives on the east coast, we have that annoying time gap and usually have to chase each other to get simple things like a Skype call organized. The ever present time zone struggle is definitely a factual and obnoxious reality.
I also got to see my two younger half siblings for the first time in about 5 months, and dang if they both haven't grown about an inch apiece!
My half-sister's birthday was March the 31st, she's 9 now.
I'm happy I managed to get her belated birthday present in the mail Friday!

And they had a clearance on giant kitkat bars at our local Safeway. ( 'v ' )

Quite some time ago, I shared a recipe for bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeno peppers on Facebook that I thought sounded really good. I had completely forgotten about it since then, so imagine my surprise when I saw bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeno peppers that my husband had spent all day preparing.

I have the start of a leatherworking kit!

Tash and I took a trip to Tandy Leather today, and I now have all of the most basic tools, enough to allow me to start with pouches and other small items.

So. Happy.

Husbeast has an interview for a position with his company a few miles from my family! We're currently living an 18 hour drive away from them.

5-0 Ice Hockey win!

Playing in a men's league, defense as usual. Three 15 minute periods (I'm used to three 10s), and super fast paced, such a great challenge! Got some mad props and respect from my teammates and made some great plays.

It was a seriously fun time!

We've been evacuated for a couple weeks now with no return date in site, but this whole crisis has really pulled my mate and I and our 2 sons closer in love.

We were wed quietly in my mother's backyard on Saturday. It was perfect.

I finally was able to get my new medicine to treat my ADHD. It's an off label use but it is amazing! (and affordable without insurance)
I can concentrate, the things that used to upset me or make me react no longer do and even if they do, not to the point I can't chose to step away from it.

that makes me want to cry from happiness. I dont think many can understand what never having the ability to focus and sunddelny being able to at 36 does. Or how much of my life the ADD has affected, I didnt even know until I started taking this new med. Thank god for modern medicine.

My husband. He went out of his way today, finding me a power strip, my art box, 3 different mice and my renfest dress and bodice. Then he did laundry and helped me change my clothes because I am hurting very bad. Now he is laying down beside me.

Also my men Eric and Kevin. I missed both of you too.

And my Mama for telling me that I am allowed to grieve as long as I need to.

Good friends, good people.

Two people have now very surreptitiously suggested I apply to work at a game company I have been following for awhile as they work on their first game. One of those people works remotely, both of them I've met in person and a couple other big names I've actually worked on a game before with, just not directly.

Problem is I have no idea what I would be applying for and the jist of what I am reading is "Make a creative resume, sell yourself on all your magical talents and we shall see if you fit." Which is intimidating as hell. They are not traditional as game companies go and their product is pretty huge and being developed and funded in an exciting way.

However on the off chance I could go work on something I REALLY want to be a part of, but don't know if I am qualified for... I am probably going to try to come up with a badass version of my resume and sell myself as best as I can. Because it would be fantastic if I could make more of a career out of doing things I already love/do to a lesser extent (on top of this art business stuff) and not have to move.

Worst case scenario: They tell me to go to school and get qualified. OR they tell me I am unfortunately too far away. Both of which are livable rejections that I would be OK with. Best case scenario: I HAVE NO IDEA THAT IS SO VEXING OMFG.

Life.

It's just insanely good. Work is amazing, challenging and rewarding, a boss who respects and seriously appreciates me. Hobbies, friends to hang out with and all sorts of activities, weekends of LARPs, road trips, renaissance festival season coming.

Having my feelings and concerns validated.. Nothing like feeling like you may just be imagining things only for them to be confirmed.

We finished moving into the house we bought! With only a few minor disasters. So much love to my sanity team that kept texting/skyping me through the day to be sure I was doing well. <3 As well as my hubby's coworkers friends, who are hoping to use the house as a gaming destination, and so came out to move all of our furniture.
