So in case anybody is like "omg what's going on why has you not posted or commented or replied", here's why:
1. The roof is still in shambles. Thankfully it didn't collapse, but the sub sequential mold filling the room is outrageously bad. The condo association has yet to even send out an insurance adjustor, so nothing is being done about the room. I've taken to duct-taping every crack in the doorway to try and alleviate some of the spores getting into the rest of the condo, but between ventilation systems and the problem being in the entire attic, who knows how much good that's gonna do. The worst part in all of this is that, technically we should have abated rent (where we pay less because of the damage), but since we can't get a hold of anybody we can't do this. Our landlord is just as angry as we are.
2. If the ceiling doesn't get fixed by the end of April, then we're gonna have to move. Well. We're going to have to move one way or another. It's just a matter of if we'll stay in town or move an hour out to Columbia, MO. I'm getting really exhausted by this nomadic lifestyle.
3. We though we had money saved for a house. Almost $5,000 actually. But my fiance's work pays him each month via Paypal and doesn't take out taxes. So guess who owed close to $4,500 in taxes to le government =v=.... it was uuuus! Thankfully we had the money, but the house is going to have to wait another year.... I, however, got a semi-nice tax return, so not all is lost!
Back onto the mold problem, my fiance''s face has, in the last 48 hours, swollen a bit like a puffer fish. It's red and hurts him worse than I think I've ever seen, and the Decongestants and anti-inflammatory medicine he's taking isn't working. He can't take anything that'll mess with his liver, or anything that is bad for people with auto-immune diseases, so our options are limited. Also, health insurance. We don't have it (yet, we're gonna HAVE to get it here in a couple months). If he can't sleep tonight, we're going to the clinic tomorrow to see if we can't get his face fixed;;; [EDIT/UPDATE] It's an abscessed tooth, which is both better and worse. Getting it taken care of tomorrow at 7:30 am. Wish us luck.
5. Iiiiiiii haven't really started on round 3, only ideas, but no paper sketches. I'm falling badly behind and I'M SORRY BUT I WILL DO MY BEST. Kirrw
is being wonderful and taking the reins with plotting which I am eternally grateful for. I'd be dead without her.
Okay, that's about it. I'm gonna go back to dealing with life with my fists raised and my feet kicking. How have you guys been doing? ANYBODY DONE ANYTHING COOL AS OF LATE?!
Peace and hugs,
Aki Here are some amazing, wonderful people who deserve all your attention!
