I have new pipes, New fixtures, and now there aren't any holes in my walls! Yahoo! My mum's going to come put some primer on the wall patches so they'll be harder to damage.
That’s fantastic Tak! I’m happy to hear your house troubles are fixed

Well some of my news updates for my daughter's virtual learning situation is both good and bad

Bad- found out we can't go out and buy a new modem, called internet provider, there are no upgrades for what we have or our location. We're stuck with glitchy laggy interbutts.

Good news- I'm starting to get daily email updates of my daughter's assigned school works.
Which prompted me to make her bring her chromebook to me and I'm now scanning through her google classroom daily making her do work.
She had me convinced before that she had it all under control and she didn't want my help and she said she did her work everyday but it turned out she wasn't even finding her work in the correct place.
So I'm hoping we can bring her grades up from here on out.

I probably can't rely on her to check every class everyday (it probably overwhelms her due to her adhd) so I'm just going to have to suck it up and help

Also found her rolled up on her floor like a burrito during her zoom meetings so I'm making her sit out in living room now and if she gets kicked off a meeting I don't let her just roll over and give up I make her get back on

My Christmas decorating it almost finished. I'm beat but I love when it's all done and I can just watch Christmas movies in my chair by the light of all my stuff. I have everything on timers too, there is nothing better then coming home from work and having the house all lit up already.:xmastree2: It's getting there, hope to be done tomorrow and then Monday I can maybe start wrapping presents and get my swap package together :)

Some good news: I’m getting two new ponies! One fakie from the freebies forum from the wonderful OctoberMoon, and a g2 Princess Trixiebelle! I’ve absolutely fallen in love and I’m so happy that Galaxy22586 is selling me her! I’m currently a bit low on money due to the pandemic but the freebie forum has been my saviour LOL.

Reconnecting with my artist soul and it's working! Embracing clutter core as a art style is garnering more interest in my work and sales on instagram!
Facebook has become a dumpster fire so I'm glad things are picking up and working out on instagram. And having this forum as a place for genuine support and stability has helped a lot too.

Things probably will never be perfect with my husband but I feel we're repairing our relationship and are on a up slope. That's about all we can ask for.

I have good news, too. My ring (just sterling silver with various amethyst stones and a couple tiny pink sapphires, that I got on clearance so, so cheap) it's finally fixed and my mom is going to pick it up for me on Wednesday!

Backstory. Back in August, when I dislocated and broke my pinkie finger by accidentally hitting my ceiling fan during my just dance workout, it smashed the ring I wear, for a number of years now, on my ring finger. I didn't notice until the swelling went down and I took it off, that a stone had popped out because due to how badly the hit mangled it. Luckily, I had bought the lifetime protection plan and they were willing to see if they could fix it or they would give me credit for the purchase price. They don't carry anything like it anymore, so I was thrilled they could get it fixed. They said it could take six months. I'm so happy! Squee! My finger will have pretty purple again! :flutter2::flutter::flutter2:

Hi everyone. I’m in a great mood today since my E is getting straight A’s for this first semester of 6th grade. She’s had a rough few weeks with me being sick and still slowly healing my hand. I’m so proud of her! I’m trying to think of something special to do or get for her doing so well.

That is fantastic!!! We all knew she's a smart girl, tell her to keep up the good work!

Let's see, let's see, good news, hmm.... I got some beautiful new ponies in the mail this past week, I've gotta take some pictures and share. I used my Instant Pot for the first time today, was pretty nifty. I'm down 5lbs this month, New Years resolution to get back into eating better and exercising...I hates it but I also hate not fitting in my clothes LOL and I attempted making hot cocoa bombs today, I think they came out pretty good for a first try :)

Like a bath bomb, right? Put it in some hot milk and stir?
