    OMJG hai guyz!

    So I took a new job with my family's business thinking that would give me a better work-life balance and more time for myself. LOL. Anyway, that's where I've been for literally months. What day is it? Where am I? The light hurts my eyes.

    But I had to come out of my hermit hole today because I received the cutest, most thoughtful little surprise gift from @Lh718, just in time for my annual "November 1 is the worst it is still Halloween" meltdown. THANK YOU! It's so sweet of you to think of me even though I've been awol for all this time. I don't even know what to say, just, thanks. For real.

    <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

    PS: If anyone needs anything wrapped for shipping, talk to LH. It took me forever to get into this thing. :lol:

    EDIT: I put prop cuttings in it!

    Hi V!

    I want the VW id.4 and finally pulled the trigger on reserving one. I wasn’t going to trade-in until the summer but everything is so backlogged that reserving now most likely means the car will get here around April/May. If it comes sooner and we can’t afford it yet, I get my deposit back. Affordability is dependent on the trade-in value of my car. Right now Carmax will give me $25600 which is crazy because it’s more than I paid for it. I’m hoping the value will still be high when I need to actually get rid of it.

    IDK why this statement tickles me so.

    "...and he doesn't seem upset, which is fine since he's a dog."

    Also, don't worry. This is from a group for dog training run by actual trainers. The dog's mental wellness is not being dismissed.

    I went to bed feeling very mopey and defeated about everything.

    This morning rooster woke up earlier than me and put my SAD light next to me and turned it on. I think he was on to something there, as I feel very smiley now.

    Also, sunset is at 4:35 pm today.

    It’s one of those things that can be hard to realize you need until you use it. Then it’s like…oh yeah, that makes a difference.

    I’ve been feeling it this week. It’s been foggy and grey for days, plus the early sunsets are killer. I don’t have a SAD light but I guess I should get one. It’s got to be better than doing nothing.

    I’ve been told I should get one. But I’m butthurt that Amazon keeps raising the prices so I don’t. Then it gets higher.

    What about a grow lightbulb? They fit in regular sockets and are relatively cheap.

    Just park myself next to my big Monstera? I like it.

    I think a grow light would work pretty well.

    The surgery went well!! He is awake and on a breathing tube, which is normal. They are going to remove he tube tomorrow and then just more recovery and ensuring the transplant isn’t rejected.

    I bought a puzzle from Rifle Paper Co.

    Two puzzles arrived.

    One of my best friends saw the same sale I did, the same puzzle I would like and also ordered it for me.

    She’s the best. I’m also apparently quite predictable and I’m not mad about it.
