I'm back, though not as active as I was previously.
Not that that's saying much.


Let me key you in on the notes.

I am no longer with Ciara's mother, and have not been for some time.
We had quite a falling out and struggled as she left our home and we had to make a decision on custody.

Everything worked out well in both cases, allowing us to maintain a distant friendship.

During this time period several things happened with me financially as I was unable to afford rent.
My money supply depleted swiftly, and I quickly fell behind on my rent.
I managed to keep up with electricity and internet (for the purpose of filing applications).

After about 4 weeks of this struggle I remembered the help that my good friend and our fellow PF member Tobias had offered me and used that to my advantage.

I am now employed, living in the same home, with my own way to pay the bills. I'm currently behind on rent, but slowly catching up. I have a new girlfriend, someone I've known for quite some time and who I had strong feelings for in the past. She moved in with me and it has been a slight struggle as we worked through the obvious discrepancies in our situation.

I'm being very careful with myself, as I'm not prepared to be hurt again, but she is very understanding.



In Short:
I got a job.
Someone gave me a chance, despite my being a father.
Thanks to Tobi, I was able to maintain myself and start climbing the ladder of success.
I'm happy, even with the struggles.

-hugs Katra and returns the scritches- Thanks for the warm, fuzzy . . . and scaly . . . thoughts.

I'm slowly climbing my way out, and it's nice to be able to come back and see some people still here that have been helpful, even if they don't know they helped me.

You don't know what a relief it is to hear you are still with us, and getting back on your feet. You were missed. *hugs*

-hugs Syrius-

It's nice to hear someone say it's a relief to see me.
I've recently had a lot of social changes going on, and there are some things I knew about people that I never expected from my closest friends.

My paws are healing from the strain of holding on, and my fire is regaining it's strength. Slowly, but surely.

I can honestly say at this point, I'm simply exhausted. Smile

Less than a week later . . .

I slipped, and it hurts. My paws are in pain and so are my heart and mind.

She's leaving, not me, just the state, so I'm going to be struggling with a long distance relationship.

Everything is going to change because of this, I've just been uprooted again.

I don't know what to do, so many things going on in my mind.
I'm sure I'll figure it out, and feel better about it later, but I couldn't handle sitting here stewing over it. Any ideas?

Go for a walk, clear your mind.

Right now, you are your highest priority. You're employed, right? Start saving money, just in case. Play games, chat online, hang out with friends. Keep yourself busy.

My two Cents.

And remember she is not leaving you. That means she will be back at your side.

Long distance relationships aren't much fun. I had one with my fiance for a year before we got married.

Phone calls and texting are your friend. Smile Yes, I agree with the pirate doggie--keep yourself busy and save your money.
