So, it looks like i pretty much just check in about once a year on here. Guess that's okay because I see most everyone on FB anyway but there are things here that are more detailed. I miss that on FB. I'll try to be on here a bit more:)

Boo!  
I haven't been on here in foooooooreeeeevvveeeeeeerrrrr!! So the other day I woke up from a nap thinking about FMA and the last movie that I never got around to watching because the first movie sucked so hard I didn't want to even think about a second movie. But I've always heard much better things about the new movie so I drug Sam and Owen out to Mckays thinking it would be a long shot that they would have it. Yep, they had it. WooHoo! Watched it. It was okay. And now very old (ancient) plot bunnies have come out from under the couch. So I batted at those for a few days and found that yes, I still suck at trying to write certain types of scenes. And now I need to rewatch the second anime because I have missed FMA. Let's hope for a little self control as I try not to binge on it, or at the very least, that I can control my binges to the days when my mom keeps Owen. *sigh*

Sad  
I'm a bit down tonight. I have a feeling that my horse (fortune) is going to have to be put down soon. For the last three or four years he's been losing weight no matter what we do. Right now he looks like a bag of bones. A couple of weeks ago he had a bad impaction and I honestly thought we'd have to do it then. Somehow he made it through. Today he started laying back down again but only for a few minutes at a time. In horses, this is not a good sign. We started today trying to get rid of any parasites he may have so that maybe he can gain some weight again but it needs to be a slow process to be sure we don't cause another impaction. Even then, I'm not sure it will make much of a difference. The whole thing makes me sad. I hate to see him this way. He's old and skinny and I certainly don't want him to be in any pain like he was with the impaction. But at the same time, I don't want to have to put him down either because he's still the most loveable horse ever and he and I are so similar in personality that it sometimes amazes me. Why does life have to be this way? Why can't pets live forever? I hope I'm wrong. I hope I am worrying about this for no reason and that Fortune will be around for several more years. I'd love for Owen to have some memories of him too but right now that just doesn't seem likely :'(

Today will be another sewing day as soon as I feel like I'm not about to gag. :( So far I have my underdress finished except for the hem and adding some beaded lace to the front. Neither of which should take very long. I also have my overdress top cut out and ready to be put together.

Today I should be able to get the overdress sewn together. The trick with the over dress is the beaded lace on the skirt. I have to get the length perfect before I put it on the dress because all the beading is at the bottom so I won't be able to hem it like normal. Other than that, there is a little bit of trim work around the neck and sleeve cuffs. I am hoping to get everything sewn together today so that on Tuesday (my next day off) I can do the underdress hem and trim work and be finished. If not I have Wednesday as well but I'd really like to not have to worry about it the day before the con. :) Now, baby says I need to go eat or end up gagging :( At least I haven't been throwing up right? As morning sickness goes, this could be worse. I think I'll knock on some wood:)

Well, I can at least see LJ for now. So what if I have to refresh everytime I actually want to read an entire post and then maybe refresh again to read the comments? At least it's showing up on the screen today.

In other news: I had been considering not bothering with my chosen costume this year. I needed to wait till the last minute anyway so I would have a good idea of what size I'll be for the con but it was starting to seem like well, why bother. Just go and not have a costume. And then the progress report showed up in the mail. No biggie. I didn't even look at it right away. I waited until I had crawled into bed and then I looked at the front cover and read two magical words that completely changed my mind about maybe not sewing. The two words?

Masked Ball.

Oh yes. The next morning I sketched out my dress and as I type I am attempting to tea dye some fabric to see if I can have something other than a bright white dress. :) I even think I know how I want my mask to look. I bet you can't tell at all that I've ALWAYS wanted to go a masked ball can you?

I have started reading Dawn of the Dreadfuls. I hope I chose wisely. I wanted to start with PPZ but was convinced to start with this one since it is a prequel. I usually like to read things in the order they were written but oh well. Eventually, I would like to read all three (I just saw Dreadfully Ever After in the bookstore the other day:) Anyone else read these?
