    Well, I figured that I should update everyone. The boyfriend and I called it quits after all of the stress that we went through. We still plan to do some stuff together. We're still working the garden together and such and possibly going hunting and all of that jazz. The birds are all sold/will be sold. I took the rabbits, most of the birds, supplies, etc to auction and brought back $147, after 20% commission. I still have my button quail breeders until I fill my egg orders. My incubators are still running. Once the birds hatch, I'll unfortunately have to sell them as well. The incubator is being sold to a friend for $125 and then I'll be selling the hatcher, probably here. The buttons will be sold off once the egg orders are filled and I'll be left with nothing pertaining to birds. I'm also digging through the rest of my stuff and selling what's left of my fish tanks, supplies, etc. The only animal that I'll have is my old cat back. So, I may stop in to see how everyone else is doing, but I won't be very active from this point on. I'm still working on my nursing license, harder now in fact, with more motivation to totally succeed in life and be better than everything I've left behind in life. I'm also going to be applying for a job at the state prison here, where both the ex-boyfriend and my mother work. If I get in there, I'll eventually apply for a nursing job there, after I get my license. I'll never make the mistakes I made in the past again, hopefully, lol. I don't plan to have another man in my life, just my two boys. That stuff is just way too much stress for me, and especially for the boys. I appreciate all of the support and love from everyone here. The people of this place have dragged me through life when it was sometimes just too much for me to do it on my own. For that, I thank all of you. Love you guys!!!

    Quote:I hope that I can get out of the habit of butchering out my "patients" when they have a problem that I cannot cure, lmao. Alright, that was low, I know. But, thanks guys. Just trying to keep my head above water right now. My old job is going to take me back in at my old rate, but I've just got to find something that keeps my mind busy until then. Once everything gets back into order, I'll be fine. Don't really miss the man, only when I have hours to sit and think about it. Even then, I can't think of WHY I would possibly miss him. Anyways, like I said, as soon as I get my old job back, I'll be fine, I just have time on my hands right now, and you know the saying, something about idle minds are the devil's playground. *Sigh*

    I wish you all the best in the future. I have remained single for most of the 14 years since my daughter was born - as I wanted to devote my time to her...not looking for a relationship.... It can get cold and lonely in the middle of winter sometimes...But I wouldnt want things any other way.

    I hope all goes well for your nursing license - and getting a great job at the end of it too. Best wishes for the future to you and your boys.
