Admin thought I was nuts, so I tried to get the email address to send the PayPal again using different words. Most likely they already tried that and it negatively impacted the way we interact with each other so they went back to ads.
If you are talking about one of our Admins, I doubt they thought you were nuts. :wink:

We used to have paid memberships with no ads and a private forum for those that had memberships. It was like that for quite a few years until interest waned and it was eliminated .

I just received a notice about the annual inspection. I have a week to get ready for it.

I have not cleaned in months. I haven't even bothered to pick up after myself. I know it's because of my depression, but that doesn't stop me from feeling like a lazy idiot.

I have to do months of work in a week. It's a colossal task, and I brought it on myself :frown:
Well, the place is coming along, but I don't think it'll be in spotless condition by Thursday. I have a dentist appointment on Wednesday, not to mention my schoolwork, so that's more time gone.

My permanent retainer popped out a few days ago and I have absolutely no time to go see my dentist. It's been on my mind a lot because I'm afraid my front teeth will shift and I'll look like a horse (more than I already do). My dentist is great. Been taking care of my teeth since I was 11 years old (maybe younger, can't remember) but he's too good. Everyone wants an appointment with him and the other dentist under his wing, I don't like. Therefore, it's hard to get an appointment with him but I get special treatment sometimes because we go way back.

I don't even want a permanent retainer to be put back in. It's the most annoying thing ever. I prefer my removable one (which I still have by the way). With the permanent one, flossing is almost impossible and food is constantly building up in between and causing back breath. I have to go to him at least twice a year to have him dig out between my teeth. If the retainer wasn't there, I'd definitely be flossing everyday.

It would also just be nice to feel like a regular human being again with no cement and metal in my little mouth.

Anybody else getting a big black bar across the screen or almost covers the whole web page that moves when you scroll? Only showing up on this site... and not other sites I'm surfing.

So the good news was that when I went to the pet store yesterday, the 40lb box of litter I use was on sale for the same price as my normal 35lb crates.

The bad news was that I had to carry it up three flights of stairs.

I am getting really low on my canned rabbit. Grrr! I feed Rawz rabbit Pate and Hound and Gatos Rabbit pate. The local store that carries rawz didn't get its shipment last week. Chewy hasn't had the hound and Gatos in stock for a while.

Edit: Back in stock at chewy, finally! Hopefully the store gets its shipment this week.

Had a checkup today. Baby's heartbeat is good. I've lost another 5 pounds. So I've lost about 12 pounds so far. Wrong direction! That stomach bug we had sure didn't help. Doctor wants me to count calories for a few days to make sure I'm eating enough, but I'm sure I am. I've just never been good at gaining weight. Maybe I should start eating lard! Haha
Tomorrow I have the anatomy ultrasound at the hospital. Those are always fun. You can really see baby well on their machine.

Wow! Those are beautiful designs! Thanks for sharing :)

Oh no :( It seems to be back to normal now for me. Hopefully for you, too, soon. It makes things a little challenging, doesn't it?

Wish I had that problem ;) Glad baby's heartbeat is good! Hope your weight starts going the other way.

I'm glad it didn't cause problems with popularity contests or some people's posts being more visible than others.

:grouphug:

I think this is my favourite place on the internet right now. I hope I don't blow it with too many off topic posts of unpopular opinions.

The Princess Palace was everything I hoped it was! I still need to get her a hammock and geek out on decorating it. It may not be appropriate for feeding her whole prey meals. She could still do with a bigger carrier for road trips and long days of running errands. But this will improve her quality of life so much! It gives her more vertical space that is her very own, so she can run and climb and play to her heart's content.

It's big enough that I could fit BOTH Chihuahuas in the bottom of the crate with her while I'm gardening if I don't have a better solution for them by then. She goes into it on her own and took her time enjoying a bone this morning. She's still teething, so I know that felt good.

I do have to contain Willow sometimes because I live in the city on a busy street. The Princess Palace is so much nicer than locking her in the bathroom!

Didn't you have the same problem when you were carrying Aedan?

You might want to try a water flosser. I wear a permanent bridge and the water flosser gets everything out from under it that the little brushed never could get. You can get a good Waterpic one for under $40 from amazon.

I haven't checked in here for a while so I bite: what's a Princess Palace besides that Disney junk all the little girls appear to be crazy about? Some kind of pet confinement as it seems to be something you can take outside for small animals??
