I have a lot of clutter to sort through.

When doing repair work on my sisters car,  a line for refrigerant got damaged and I had to get a new one. Caused a 6 hour delay.

Still waiting for certain awards to be announced. They're long overdue.

Awards delayed due to hurricane...and under-staffing. We are a volunteer organization after all.

While organizing files on my comp today, I accidentally deleted a folder containg lots of pics and other information necessary for a future modeling project.  :'( I then had to scour the Net and look for that information all over again.

Dog handling classes at animal shelter still haven't occurred.  This means I still can't help much there since I don't have the training.

One of my dogs has been sick. Stable for now, but hoping for the best.

Went on a bike ride after the weather warmed up last week. Saw a butchered deer carcass just off the rail trail--evidence of poaching.

Yeah I know at my place over 50% are on break, not me, but probably good bet like you say to wait longer.
Wishing the best!

Thanks. No phone call today. On the other hand there was no rejection email, either, and Siiwolf (close friend who works there but in a different department) says that if I'm not selected they're required by law to send me a rejection email, but I'm not sure if that rule is enforced, so... yeah. I hope I get something soon.

Making plans to move out in the next couple of years, effectively ending my r/s with my once-mate.

It feels like a divorce and I've been working my tail off so I don't think about it, been crying a lot off and on this past year. The thought of living alone scares me, but healing is more important than being in a bad situation and worse, letting my behavior get out of control. My heart has been broken for a long time, and I knew this day would come eventually.  :'(

Sorry Varg.  I know you were hoping they would call.

Again, sorry Iara,  that's a rough situation.  I hope time heals you sooner than later and you get to feeling better. 

I hope my fur friends can have a bit of good luck come their way.
