I haven't updated in quite some time, and the last few posts have been rushed. Too much Facebook time, to be honest. But I've decided to start updating fics and original stories and to make them easier to find. My archived stuff here: http://luna-s-dreams.livejournal.com/
Partly due to a rather traumatic and depressing few years, plus fluctuating health, I just haven't been able to write much. And for a while, my focus was on trying to find a job and keep it. Now I have that, and time to write. I felt freer and more inspired on Livejournal, where I met most of my online friends. Because I used to actually enjoy writing and many other creative pursuits, I've decided to polish off a few of my unfinished fanfics for practice. They will be tagged #AU for alternate universe or alternate timeline, to reflect changes in the actual series they were inspired by. (In the Arms of an Angel, for example, was written before the last two Harry Potter books came out, so there are a few major deviances from the original series.) Anyway, just wanted to put that out there.

Since I haven't heard back from anyone about a second part-time job yet, I think I should ask if the sanctuary needs more volunteer help during the week, even if it is helping Marianne with the yard sale items. I just have to get out of the apartment each morning, at least for a little while, or else I'll:
A) go insane
B) go to sleep
C) continue to be depressed and feel lazy
or D) become addicted to the Sims2 (if it hasn't happened already, it's a miracle. LOL)

My dizziness really limits how many hours I can work and how far I can travel, and since I do not have a disabled bus pass or a license, I will have to buy 10-ride tickets or a monthly pass come December 1st, thanks to them no longer being sold at local supermarkets. (Yeah, the new Medicaid/RiteCare program now requires that you call 7 days in advance for tickets and provide date, time, and proof of doctor's appts, so I cannot use them for work and the kids cannot use them for school anymore.) The thing is, working the 6:30am shift actually helped me with my depression and other symptoms. I had stability and a purpose. Plus, it ensured that I'd be home for the kids and able to attend Aidan's track meets. Maybe 7-8 hr shifts, 6 days per week are too much for me, but with the busy season over, being cut back to 2 night shifts just isn't working for me. I had more motivation last winter to prove that I had earned this job and that I could be an asset, which I am... when I'm not praying to the porcelain god. My first goal is to ask if he can fit me in 4 days a week which would give me a day off for appointments; my second goal is to get some sort of confirmation/diagnosis of my Meniere's so that I can get the reduced fare pass and apply for SSDI. My boss and coworkers have been pretty understanding about my condition, since they know when I'm there, I'm a workhorse that keeps things running smoothly and keeps my coworkers happy. I am good at this! My illness forced me to rely more on visual cues from the dogs and be calmer. The pens are not really a full-time option; although I can cover breaks in the medium-sized pen or a few hours in the little dog pen, my fluctuating hearing loss and tinnitus drowns out growls. It is a safety issue.
The kennels are my domain: I'm Mistress of the Hounds. LOL

So far, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is proving to be my favorite book ever. Consider, if you will, the facts that I read at least a hundred books per year and that I have a wide taste in books, and you will "get" that this isn't an exaggeration. I identify only too well with the main character and much of what he writes could have been lifted from the pages of my own journals. My comments below:
