:hug: Ponyfan.

My trivial complaint - the tall cupboard has mould in the back again. We had some issues with a leaking roof a while back which has now been fixed. BUT getting the mould permanently out of the cupboard has been so difficult. I am resorting it now to try and improve the ventilation, but it's so annoying.

A few G4 ponies in packaging bore the brunt of it on shelf 4. Most are fine, but one had to be decarded. I have no real emotion over G4 on card, thankfully, so throwing the packaging out was not a big deal - but it makes me worry a little bit about my G1s in the other cupboard...

Fortunately the most valuable (to me) thing on that shelf, Wedding Bells Confetti's box, is unharmed.

Anyhow, one pony got unexpectedly decarded as she's fine but her package was toast. Another one needs to be decarded but it's a pony I already have loose so I'm not really sure what to do with her. The others wiped down fine, thankfully.

It's not a massive mould infestation, just a line of it along the back wall where the water seeped in and we didn't manage to spot it. But it's annoying and unpleasant.

Today's complaint is that my soda exploded & I was really looking forward to drinking it.  :(

Taffeta, Oh no! Mold is so gross, I'm glad its not too bad!

I didn't have nightmares last night but instead a dream with really intrusive thoughts that continue to pop up in my mind this whole morning!  ARGH I do not want to think , I want to just have a peaceful and quiet morning that doesn't involve my imagination!

yesterday some of my relatives went to visit my parents. i had to work and my husband wasn't up to seeing anyone. i told my parents i would try to come over if i had time during the day. by the time they got to my parent's house it was almost 1pm and i had calls all afternoon. so i told my dad i couldn't come over until after 4. which was too late. then my dad says "oh we can swing by for a few minutes" ugh what part of my husband doesn't want to see anyone and i'm literally going to be on the phone says we want to entertain guests? i told him that was not ok and he said maybe next time. my relatives are super judgy about people's homes and i know i shouldn't care but i at least need a few days notice if they're going to come by. i feel a little bad but also they know i have a job. if they really wanted to see me they could have come on a weekend.

So, a follow up adventure to my cupboard sorting. That same cupboard mentioned in the previous post, now largely cleared of mould, was sitting open and has been the last few days during sorting and cleaning. I had demoulded the top shelf, so I'd left the plastic tubs in there and some of the Dream beauties were lined up along the front of the shelf.

Some time just before 4 this morning I was woken by an ominous sound from the cupboard. I turned the light on and saw that the plastic tub that holds my ponywear had fallen forward and was resting on the backs of the dream beauties. And two or three ponies were now hanging precariously over the edge of the shelf into the abyss...

So at almost 4am I was clambering up on stools, grabbing ponies, stabilising the boxes in the cupboard and making sure everything was safe.

Luckily it happened when I was there. Luckily the ponies it fell onto were the striding pose ones who had a more stable posture. Luckily no Dream Beauties were harmed in this adventure.

...But I'm pretty tired.

I sat in my desk chair today, the chair I bought earlier this year, and slowly sank. The gas lift has something wrong with it. I watched a few videos on how to fix it and I'm hoping that the easiest one will work. I need to turn it upside down overnight. The theory is that the lubricating oil inside the cylinder has settled to the bottom. Next to that is getting some oil and replacing it manually. After that, it gets more difficult to fix. So I really hope the first option works.

Also these damn bugs. I watered my plants from the bottom. Taffeta, I did end up putting them in the sink with shallow water and left them there for a few hours to soak it up. I have no food out. Aster ate all her wet food breakfast and the bowl has been washed. They are still flying around my face wherever I go. They are attracted to the light from my PC monitor and fish tank, so they are constantly buzzing the area. I am so sick of dealing with them. The only good news is that the sticky plant spikes don't have a huge amount on them, so they are getting down in numbers.

They power washed the outside of all the buildings today. They used bleach. I hate the smell of bleach. It gives me a headache and makes me nauseous. The smell woke me up from a nap I desperately needed. To make it worse, when they washed my door, because of the gap underneath, some water got inside and got my little mat wet. My little mat that is brown. So now it will probably get bleached spots. I told maintenance about the gap but they said they didn't have any weather stripping to fix it. I might just buy some and fix it myself.

What else? I'm in a lot of pain. I always take my pain meds with dark soda, either Dr. Pepper or Pepsi and I'm out of both with no money to get more. So I felt the meds weren't as effective, but maybe it was placebo. Either way, I'm still in a lot of pain.

I feel awful today :( My allergies are really bad.

Some good news, I left my chair upside down last night and today it's working again.

Thanks everyone.  :hug: :hug:  I still miss her a lot.


I tried to talking to my mom about something and she told me that I if I wanted to talk about that she wanted to go home (we were in the car)  When I told her  that was mean and not nice she told me it wasn't because she didn't want me to get upset right then.  I asked her if she thought telling me that she wanted to go home wouldn't upset me just as much.


I wanted to repot plants today, but my mom keeps putting it off.  It's probably going to be too hot to do it today after she gets everything done she wants to do.


I found a dead baby bird on the patio.  I'm not sure if it fell out of the nest during the storms we had or if one of th neighborhood cats got it.

As I suspected, by the time my mom got ready to repot plants, she decided it was too late to do it. :(  I shouldn't be so disappointed about it, but  she kept saying "After this, we'll repot plants" all day long.  I also made sure I wasn't involved in anything too deeply so when she got ready we could repot the plants together.

My parents can be so infuriating at times.   :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh:

My mom wanted to go the hospital to pay a bill.  My dad put the address in his phone, but didn't listen/follow the directions when it told him to stay on a certain street.   He was also complaining that "the phone's not talking to me" but it was because he had his phone's volume all the way down. 

We get to the hospital and of course, we're not at the right part.  I went in with my mom while she asked where to go and the lady working at the desk said she'd show us how to get there.  The part we needed to be at was down a long hallway and down to elevator to the basement.    After my mom took care of everything, I said we should probably go back to where we started so my dad could find us.  Instead, she followed a bunch of people outside and called my dad trying to tell him where we were.   He passed us in the car and then my mom decided to try to chase down the car, not paying attention in the parking lot for cars or really looking where she was going.   We stayed outside for a few minutes waiting for my dad (he'd driven to the wrong side of the building based on my mom's directions and where he thought we were. 

We got back in the car and my dad's frustrated.  Then his phone rings and he jumps. He can't have it both ways; be annoyed that his phone isn't "talking" and then be annoyed because it's ringing.

Also, I almost had a panic/anxiety attack in the elevator because I'm always afraid of getting stuck in one between floors.

I found out yesterday that a friend's puppy nipped/bit my mom on Friday.  It was an accident and the friend felt really bad, but I was a little annoyed that my mom didn't tell me.  I had noticed the marks on her arm, but didn't realize they were bite marks. 

I still miss my dog. :wail:   Some of my favorite shows were about animals and now I can't bring myself to watch them.

:hug: Ponyfan

Losing a pet is never easy :hug: There are a lot of options for keepsakes that can help honor her life with you and keep her memory :heart:



I fell the other day and landed on my knee. Luckily it was on the carpet so it had some padding. There's a big bruise on it now. There's also a bruise on my arm and my ankle hurts a bit.

i'm sorry Ponyfan :hug: :hug: It takes time but it does get better.  for me it helped to look at photos.  my phone screen is still a photo of my Moose, who died in 2020 and Jessie, his BFF who is still with us.  it makes me smile when i see it.



my complaint today is i'm tired from the last couple of days. Also i think one of my dogs got into something while she was staying at my parents'. she has a couple of itchy spots. i need to give her a bath.
