TL;DR (later today there will be fic)

Wow, so I have been SO GONE lately. It's...a long set of stories, to be honest. To sum up: Ed's family is fucked up. Mentally and physically. Some hospital-visiting and some courtroom-happenings, all in Minnesota.

Lot of court time due to our 'extra' children. We had to become actual foster parents because one of our extras technically lives in another county. Looooots of court-time and home visits and classes.

Ton of work because the seven-year-old needs an expander and it's gonna cost. Why you gotta be a not-the-fun-type of mutant, child?

Spending time with many kids--I have a third kid who keeps trying to move in. Her family is super nice and very sweet but she's at that difficult age. During the summer the extras have lived with us most of the time. So I just spent a ton of time with the kids--my own and the others.

Occasionally keeping a baby in my house! Skyla's little girl (Mia) has been in my care a few times. I might be keeping her overnights a few nights a week so Skyla can sleep since school is starting again. (Jeremy, her dad, hasn't had a drink since she was born so I'm totally hopeful on that front, too.)

And teaching the oldest child to drive. We spend a lot of time on the road and spent a few days in Iowa so she could visit her Anime Iowa friends. It was fun watching teenagers terrorizing the park in Hetalia gear. (My child was Chibitalia.)

MATT AT FIRESTONE IS LEAVING ME. I love my mechanic. He took over for Walter and I still miss him, too. Woe. That was not why I was missing at all--that's just something I found out now. Saaaaaaaad.

But anyhow--so busy that I literally have not been online for more than beinghuman_rp in weeks. I haven't been on any messenger. I haven't checked my flist, either. Just. No energy for it. I'll be around more now and I'll poke at the flist but if something major is up, drop me a line.

I haven't even written a word of fic in ages. BUT. rainbowfilling has/had a deadline for me so you'll see something later today--for now I'm getting my oil changed and my tires rotated.


EDIT: ABOUT MY RP. beinghuman_rp has been rebooted. We now do month-by-month play (rather than week-by-week) and we've pretty much had a fresh start for most everybody. We're also down to just a handful of people. Sho and Aiba are both open (and I've heard Ohno might open up, too). Toma is open? KOREANS ARE OPEN. Seriously, Yesung is there. YESUNG. Come play!

I was just writing you an email, LMAO. It's still sitting in gmail half typed up but I got distracted with checking LJ. I'D BEEN WONDERING WHERE YOU WANDERED OFF TO.

Sounds like life has been pretty insane for you, although being fair... when hasn't it been madness in the last 3-5 years? You're a saint for taking Skyler's baby a few nights a week to help her out with things like sleep, not to mention all of the other pseudo adoptees. X_x Your house sounds a lot like how mine used to be, although my parents thankfully never had to go through any court proceedings to be able to take care of the other kids that fostered here.

I MISS YOU. I haven't even had a chance to tell you anything about Korea. Did you get my package? It had something from Kaille and something from me. I'm sorry for the lack of cute letter, but I was in a hurry to get it out the door so I wouldn't forget.

YOUUUU! I was just going to email you, no lie. You must have 'friends are concerned for me' radar or something. :D I'm sorry things are so crazed, but at least it's because you have a wonderful family that everyone wants to be a part of! ♥

I was just thinking yesterday that it had been a really long time since I'd seen a post of yours, even though I get much of your time in BH_RP. It's good to hear from you. <3 Sounds like a ton is going on!

I have so missed you! It sounds like life has really been insane, but you seem to be handling it so well&hearts You have no idea how impressive and wonderful I think you are to be able to be juggling all of this at once.

FIC! FIC! I will be hovering online now.

I haven't been on LJ for 5 days, and god knows how many things I have to DL. Things are insane here, and by insane, I mean I am indefinitely crashing at my friend's house because on Tuesday, our really shitty couples counselor on our SECOND session informed me that I need to 'let go' and 'hear his feelings' and that one of us needed to move out that night. So rather than send him out to the SW, I left. No contact since Tuesday. We're not supposed to see each other until next Thursday. :P

Craziness. But I'm ok, getting better each day. Tuesday and yesterday were pretty rough ^^;

Geh. World is ridiculous, but you are wonderful&hearts

Ok I normally don't leave comments for strangers who I follow for fic since it's weird to comment on personal life things. But.

RORY

okay, I'm done now.
