Hello, my name is Melissa and I have a podcast problem. The list of podcasts I'm in the middle of is large, but my list of ones to listen to is even larger. And itunes keeps deleting the podcasts I haven't started (I tend to download the first episode of interesting ones for later listening). So I'm putting my list here on dreamwidth. Feel free to ignore - this is mostly just for me, and it's going to be HUGE.

I updated my werewolf au.

It wouldn’t be anywhere near as coherent without the wonderful [personal profile] respoftw looking it over AND talking me down from the ledge (AGAIN). Seriously, guys. She puts up with so much.

I've got the next 'stage' of the fic planned. Hopefully I can do it justice re: Rodney's emotional growth and attachment to John & the pack.

It turns on, it'll go for longer than 5 minutes before dying. We have heat (thank god, because the next three days are in the 30s).

I can't put into words how less stressed I am with that taken care of. God.

As you know, a week ago I was in the hospital for having a seizure. I was released on Saturday, and on Sunday I returned to work.

On Monday, I walked out of work to find our car wouldn't start. My dad figured it was the battery, so I went back inside and bought one for $100. Meanwhile, our family friend, Junior, came out to give us a jump. We were going to follow Junior to his house and switch the old battery for the new one, but we never made it. The lights in the car grew dim, as did our head & tail lights, so we pulled into a 7-11 and switched the batteries out there. Our car turned on, though the clock, radio, and our heater wouldn't work. As we pulled into our parking space at home, the headlights visibly dimmed and flickered.

We were just trying to hold on until I get my next check.

Then, today. We're on our way home from Thanksgiving dinner with my sister-in-law and her family. At one point, our speedometer  went to 0, even though we were still moving. And then the car died, completely, right there in the road, five minutes from home. Thank god we were on a back road. My sister-in-law and her family came out and gave us another jump, and we made it another 3 minutes before the car died again. We abandoned it at the side of the road.

I got a ride to/from work today, and my sister-in-law's brother towed the car to the front of our trailer. Then he pushed it into our parking spot, with me steering. And now it's in front of our trailer, but it's making this weird, non-stop groaning/screeching noise. The car is off and in park.

I don't know what to do. Dad thinks it's the alternator. Others have suggested the starter, and maybe there's a short (and that's why the radio/clock/heater won't work). If I take my $300 bonus next check and the $300 I was going to use to take the dog to the vet, I can scrape together $600. Do we take it in and hope it IS the alternator and they can fix it? Or should we just try to buy a new car, which might come with a new set of problems?

And even if we DO decide to take it in, how do we get it to the auto shop? It's illegal to tow it yourself. We could do it to save some money and hope no police catch us, or we could have it towed by a towing service and take on another large bill.

I am so stressed and just so fucking DONE. That's it. I want to stop existing now, please.

So, I don't know if any of you are aware, but Joe lost his house in the California fires. He's been posting a lot on his instagram.

I am so sad for him, even though I know he's in a better position than most to rebuild and continue on. Still, he lost things of sentimental value no doubt.

But? I am so fucking proud of him. He was stopped by a reporter for a local news station and interviewed. He was bringing water and supplies to help out his neighbors. What a good fucking man.

Ox was twelve when his daddy taught him a very valuable lesson. He said that Ox wasn’t worth anything and people would never understand him. Then he left.
Ox was sixteen when he met the boy on the road, the boy who talked and talked and talked. Ox found out later the boy hadn’t spoken in almost two years before that day, and that the boy belonged to a family who had moved into the house at the end of the lane.
Ox was seventeen when he found out the boy’s secret, and it painted the world around him in colors of red and orange and violet, of Alpha and Beta and Omega.
Ox was twenty-three when murder came to town and tore a hole in his head and heart. The boy chased after the monster with revenge in his bloodred eyes, leaving Ox behind to pick up the pieces.
It’s been three years since that fateful day—and the boy is back. Except now he’s a man, and Ox can no longer ignore the song that howls between them.

Life  
This weekend my mom had another seizure and dislocated her shoulder. This is the second seizure in a month or so, which means her meds probably aren't working. It's been six years, and it's awful to be back in the mode of constant fear that she'll have one and hit her head. I get nervous when she's in the bathroom too long.

It's hard for her too. She's in a sling. She can't clean, she can't bathe herself (well, she can sponge bathe herself, but getting in and out of the tub is a no). So we're picking up the slack, helping her out, and we don't mind but it bothers her.

Work has been stressful on top of all of this, so when I get home I usually end up going to bed early or just disappearing into a book/fic. I'm tired all the time, lol.

BUT, it hasn't been all bad. I finished reading this really awesome book recently, which I'm going to post about when I get home from work~

Ugh.  
Gmail has been hiding comments from me - marking them as spam, good one - so if I haven't responded to a comment you left, it's probably because I didn't see it. I apologize to everyone!
