This past week has weighed heavy on my emotions. Last Sunday evening, one of my rats passed away. Tuesday, her partner in crime passed away as well 😦 These two were my first rats, Nimh and Dovah. We got them Christmas Eve-Eve and Christmas Eve 2013. They were pretty old for rats and had health issues, but I don’t think anything can prepare you for the loss of loved ones. We brought home the two younger rats, Fitz and Spirit, about a year after we got Dovah and Nimh are a bit confused and sad, but they are holding together.
My two old ladies were really wonderful, loving rats that taught Shalien and I a lot. We’ll miss them 😦
The queen of rats and intense eyes.
She really loved if you’d talk to her in a JFK accent.
Everyone forcing their way onto one shoulder and whipping me in the face.
In addition to losing my two furry family members, I worked probably about 80 hours last week and things won’t be slowing down 😦 My trip is coming up and I’m nowhere near prepared for the exam I will be taking and I just want it all to stop.
On a positive note, I managed some good GW2 time and rat time yesterday. I’ve been spending a lot of time with the young rats to help them deal with their loss as well.
I worked with Shalien and the guild to make a submission for Guild Wars 2 TwitchCon participation. It feels weird attaching the video here right now, but it felt good to make a community video again. Here’s our entry:
Hopefully, you’ll see our submission at TwitchCon at the end of September and hopefully, things will calm down in my life.
