August 20th there was a fire in the basement of my boyfriend’s house while we were both gone. I lost two beloved senior pets. My hermit crabs appear to be ok but time will tell. Everything was damaged by smoke and soot. For reasons I won’t go into there was no insurance coverage on my belongings. That means anything that was not cleanable is lost. Some of my hermit crab stuff survived but I will have to replace all the heat pads and lights on my tanks.
Five days later he broke up with me.
I am now displaced for a month or more while I wait for my permanent housing to be available. I am staying with my sister who has no internet at her house, which is also a cell phone dead zone for me. I am at the library today. I will return to work next week.
The contests for August both are sponsored so there will be prizes! COTM is sponsored for two more months as well by NE Herp. So for now the contests can carry on.
I am still trying to wrap my head around how to still make it to the Pet Expo Nov 5&6 2016 but I am not giving in yet!
I will pull off the birthday giveaway as well even if I am not able to get more sponsors.
Thank you all for being patient.
Stacy I am sorry for your losses. It has to be heart breaking. Please let me know if I can do anything from here.
Hang in there, my mother always tells me things will work out. And they do. So hang tough!
Stay strong, Stacy!
