So those of you who read this journal know that I've been booted out of what was previously my home. What I didn't mention in that journal is that for the last few months I've been planning for a trip to the Netherlands to visit my lovely fiancé, kef-meister. We haven't seen each other in-person for about a year now and we're having some trouble jumpstarting the immigration process, so Kef went ahead and got me a plane ticket so I could go stay with him for a while again. I'm due to leave in ten days...so basically, my mom kicked me out 12 days before I was going to leave anyway? The whole thing is ridiculously stupid.
Luckily, my friend's family are willing to let me stay with them until then (that's where I'm at now), and are even going to look after my cat while I'm away. Unfortunately, since I had to pack my stuff and get out of there in such a hurry, I couldn't bring anything but the bare basics for my cat (litter box, food bowls, little bit of litter, and some cat food), so I have to stock up on more litter, scratchers, and toys... Plus I'm out the money my mom owed me, since I did think she was gonna pay me back until shit went sour and I was counting on that money to get some other necessities before my trip.
So I think what I'm going to do is keep regular commissions closed but then do a few pay-what-you-want streams this week. I have one larger commission left in my queue to work on, so I'll take some small PWYW ones while I work on that off and on.
In other news, because I had to move so quickly, Suki has been pretty stressed. The initial drive here was awful for her--she really doesn't like being in a moving vehicle and cried the whole way. She's an inquisitive, assertive cat though, so she seems to be bouncing back. At first she refused to eat anything, and did initially turn her nose up when I gave her some food this morning, but then after about an hour she went back to her dish and ate about half of what was in her bowl. As of writing this, she's eating the other half too now. So I think she'll be okay, though I do feel really bad that I'm going to be leaving so soon after moving her out like that...but there's not much that can be done about it. At least I know she'll be well taken care of.
