Could you all do me a favor?

I am not used to everyone's usernames on Dreamwidth, is there a way you could let me know who you are so I can put them in my notes?

That's one way of "fixing" the help Veterans get. What the fuck is wrong with this administration?

Everything that is political is making me rage.

That's all I'll say about it.


One more week, well, actually on Friday, Jd's re-check is scheduled. They'll take an x-ray in his cast, and if his leg is healed, he will be able to get his cast off. That will be nice.

Dominic is out of town again, in California for work. I'm alone until Wednesday. My mom's cousin's husband, John passed away last week, she's leaving on Thursday in the morning to go to the funeral. They are the only family on that side of my family who have ever been consistently kind to me and my Mom. I wish I could go too but I can't figure out a way to be able to afford it.

I'm almost finished making a cosplay for Clary Fray from Shadowhunters. I nearly lost my mind the other day on FB when I made a status update about how I hated the Sibling trope in The Mortal Instruments/Shadowhunters and someone blasted in with a "BOYCOTT CASSANDRA CLARE FOREVER", I was like... um... no? I like her books AND the movie AND the show. Why would I do that? Then she went in on how CC plagiarizes, which the case against her was delayed/ dismissed? And the person taking the case against her is literally trying to copyright (seemingly) well known fantasy tropes like a magically imbued weapon, secret society of demon hunters, etc.

If you aren't my friend on Instagram, I am 'thegreylioness' there as well. :) I bought a really nice lace front wig on Amazon for my cosplay, and I could probably use it for a few other costumes as well. I shared some photos dressed as Clary there. I would share here as well but it's somewhat of a pain in the ass. A few other things I want to get is maybe some black jeans to wear for this costume, and I want to make her Stele. Maybe look into making a Seraph Blade as well but I might run out of time.

Speaking of costuming. I'm in the middle of so many of those projects, I need to buckle down and finish them. I have Dominic's renaissance shirt that is still in pieces! And I have all the stuff, I believe to make Giselle's Curtain Dress from Enchanted. But I get distracted by the kids, and I don't ever NOT have chores that need to be doing. Like right now? I have a laundry monster upstairs and I don't remember when the last time the living room was vacuumed and the dishes need to be done and the table needs cleaning off again.

All these things add up and weigh me down like crazy. I keep wanting to work out, and have the SAME exact problem as my chores VS cosplay. Work out? or do chores? FREAK OUT INSIDE AND DO NOTHING.

I need to make all these doctors appointments too. For the boys, for me, for the dog and cats. It's too much sometimes. And when Dominic is out of town, it is so much worse. I worry sometimes that three kids was too much for me, and think who's idea was it, anyway to have three kids? But Parker is totally awesome, don't know what life would be like without him in it.

I'm feeling constantly like I'm just a drain on the family, monetarily wise, and I don't do much on the other hand so what good am I? It's hard. I struggle with my self worth every single day. It doesn't help that I feel so alone most of the time too. Luckily, I've been talking with a new FB/LJ friend, and that has been nice. I also invited my friend Mindy to go to MN Fan Fest with me in August to meet Jason David Frank. Speaking of which, I need to go buy the tickets, probably.

I hope everyone is doing fine, I still read everyone's posts, but I'm sorry if I don't comment enough.
