    I spent most of today working on the aquatic collage I'm making as the background for my 65-gallon. This thing is 36" x 25", so there's a lot of space to work with and stretch creative license a little.

    Tomorrow, we go to my LFS. There won't be enough room in the hatchback of my jeep for the tank or stand, but at least I can pick up the filter and choose my gravel. Hubby has work to do restoring some rentals, so he'll have his ladder in the hatchback and a bunch of other stuff, as well.

    I'll probably also get some more moss balls for my 20-gallon.

    My one cat wouldn't go into his protective shelter tonight, and wolves have been spotted in the area. He knows better -- he hid inside our pole shop for about a half hour before I finally coaxed him out. Then when I got him outside, he sat on the ledge of the cat shed and wouldn't budge. If I tried to approach him, he ran off. He's not scared of me, this is a little game he loves to play every night. When he finally gets hungry in the morning, he goes in all by himself, as soon as I open the door. I'm afraid one of these nights his shinanigans are going to cost him his life. He runs down into the forest, and with snow on the ground, there's no way I can go after him in the dark!

    Not a very smart kitty, is he?

    Nothing of much note... I had to write a midterm exam online early this morning. Thankfully my computer is in the same room as my bed, so I oozed out, took the exam, oozed back in, curled up with my alpaca pillow, and slept till noon. Had one ear open in case the mail carrier arrived; my cell phone died on me a few days ago, and I'm waiting for a replacement. Other than that, I went out to get a copy of "Paranormal Activity 2", and that was about it.

    Well I have thus far... poured the coffee, fed the fish and getting caught up on my online forums. I'm contemplating the interesting time I'm going to have cleaning out the guest room closet.

    Normally I wouldn't care, but if I don't get started on this project, then I'll feel pretty crummy when family comes to visit in April. The guest room is also my little space for all my arts and crafts and used paperbacks. At times it becomes a small migratory resting place for things. For example when I cleaned out the downstairs coat closet, the model rockets and super soakers were removed... but since I've not found a new permanent home for them... they are on the bed up there.

    I rinsed out the pre-filter sponge on my AC50. I noticed some crimping of the water at the base of the waterfall, and a diminished flow, even though the flow valve was wide open. Figured it had to be a clogged pre-filter sponge. Sure enough, it was filthy x 3. Once I thoroughly rinsed it out and replaced it on the extension tube, my filter flowed normally, with no more crimping in the outflow.

    Haven't fed the fish yet, and probably wont, today. They got goodies yesterday.

    Tested the water. There's tiny bit ammonia spike, so I put in some Prime. Rest of the parameters are fine.

    Other than that, I slept in most of the morning since I didn't get to bed until 2 A.M., and now I'm on the forum. Brewed me some hot tea and had the last slice of yesterday's pizza. Hubby didn't want it.

    This is kind of surprising to me but a lot of hobbyist on this forum are married women lol. Who said girls never liked fish?

    But today went like this: Robotics from 10-1, lunch from 1-3, Robotics from 3-6:45, and I just finished dinner which means it's AC time haha but tomorrow is totally going to suck - driving school :/ Stupid speeding tickets. I get to waste 8-4:30 of my life learning what I already know. Next time I finish a baseball game and I have my adrenaline on 100% full blast I'll be sure to put a little plug in to stop my endorphins from going crazy. [/sarcasm]

    My uncle's funeral was this morning, so I went to that, then I had two tanks to clean, and my new cell phone finally arrived. I swapped the easy-to-scatter gravel in Scarlet's tank for aqua-colored glass stones, and she doesn't know what to think of them XD

    Sorry about your uncle, Cyberra.

    This morning my son woke me up at 4:30 which normally would not have been a good thing but it gave me chance to talk to my hubby on his way to work. He's in Nevada flying with the top gun guys since last Friday (I miss him so much!) After that I took a test for my online class and scored a 20 out of 20 Did a bunch of laundry while the baby was sleeping and by 1030 I was starving so I decided to drive to Yucca Valley to try a mexican food place Ive been wanting to try and it was sooooo good! Its so hard to find good food of any kind out here, but mexican food is my favorite so I was super stoked about that. Went to Walmart and spent way too much money as usual. Came home and dyed my hair, talked to my friend in Germany, and now I am still doing laundry. Eh I hate laundry! Thinking about going to Home Depot to get what I need to start making the background for my aquarium instead.

    Forgot to mention in my last post that I have an 18" pillow form that I've got plans for... Going to get some nice blue fabric and sew rainbow-tailed goldfish onto it, then make a nice pillow ^_^ Beware of needlepointer LOL
