  1. I lost my job a year ago, due to a workplace injury that worker's compensation then refused to cover. Long story short, I'm doing much better now but still fragile and still out of work. My husband has a steady job, but works long hours. His job can keep us afloat, but we can't move forward. The quarantine is starting to get to us, too, even though in our area it doesn't feel safe yet to go back to "normal." Over the last six months, my husband's mood has just gone down. I think its been coming on for longer than that but now its really noticeable and hard for me to deal with. He's lost interest in his hobbies other than watching TV or playing online games. He's often glum and hopeless about the future. He hasn't been sleeping well and is always tired. He feels guilty, like he's failed by picking the wrong career or getting the wrong degree, because he wants to be able to support both of us on his own. I don't think he's a suicide risk, but when I do try to talk to him about this and make suggestions of little life improvements - walks, better eating, meditation or yoga - he rejects it out of hand, just saying this is life and anyone trying to think otherwise is deluding themselves. I feel terrible for him, and I worry its not going to get better once I find a job. I just want him to feel better, but its hard not to get frustrated in dealing with him also. 😢😢😢
  2. In 2016 I only got about half of them, then in 2017 and 2018 I completely missed both events due to work. I was going to Try Hard this year!. Lol, wouldn't you know, I missed completing the set by ONE EGG. But I'm not super upset, my basket still looks nice, and the event was fun. Does anyone know where we can see all the eggs, so I can see the one I missed? This is unrelated, but does anyone know why we don't get a Spring-themed dragon release over the Festival of Eggs? It's the only major event (not counting April Fools) that doesn't have a dragon release...
  3. My favorites are the Dark Greens <3
  4. Congrats, subwoofer! Grabbing a leetle is such a good feeling ^_^
  5. I burst out laughing at the line about the "pink-wrapped strawberry candies old people always seem to have". My dad and grandparents always had those in the house somewhere! I used to like them as a child, but now they're kind of yuck LOL
  6. So glad I checked this site - I had thought the Valentines eggs would be breedable STARTING on the 14th, not ending! Agh, now I gotta play catch up!
  7. So... everybody's experience with abuse is different. Physical abuse is awful, but what you're going through is also abuse. He is damaging you by being so controlling and manipulative. My advice is that you can do one of two things: 1) Confront him honestly about how he's been treating you. This might not improve things, but use your own judgment in that. In general, if you think it won't help, it probably won't, especially if he's being irrational. Or, 2) Distance yourself emotionally. You said you still have to live with him, but when he gets in an abusive mood, disengage from the situation however possible, even if it means leaving. Don't let anyone make you feel guilty for this. He has no right to treat you like this, and you need to protect yourself before you can care for others. You said he came from a broken home himself - that is very unfortunate, but it is a reason for his behavior - not an excuse. Don't let anyone dismiss his behavior or your suffering because of this. He's had his whole life to deal with these issues, and its too bad he hasn't. That's not your fault, and it doesn't mean you have to put up with his attitude. Remember you can't control his behavior, only your own. In some ways, emotional abuse is more insidious than physical abuse, because it affects your own psychological behavior in ways that can affect you for years after the abuse has stopped. Don't discount it as lesser. I don't know if family therapy would be helpful to your situation or if your family would be willing, but for your own sake it might not be a bad idea to talk to someone about this awful situation. Source: I went through many years of emotional and sometimes physical abuse due to similar but un-diagnosed mental illness in my parents. Finally working through it ten years after moving out. If you want to chat more, feel free to PM me. I'm no expert, but I can try to share what I've learned from my experience. Up to you, no pressure.
  8. I've got rME4T on an Aria.
  9. This was such a fun event! I love all the decorating events, and this time around I'm doing way better at the tetris game than I did last time! It makes me feel Smart lol. Thanks, TJ and all involved for making this a fun (and nostalgic) holiday!
  10. Trying to catch a CB Striped River dragon for a Valentines lineage, but I can't find one in the cave
  11. Everyone's trees are so beautiful! I almost used a snowflake theme on my tree, but I ended up not. I am sooo happy with this year's event - I missed the original tree decorating and always regretted it, so here is my first ever TREEEEEEE And here is my WREATH! I'm super proud of the blinky stars! Originally I did a thing where I tried to use every decoration at least once. It was cool, but very busy. I like this one a lot more 😃 Especially the blinking pattern Here is my GINGERBREAD HOUSE! It originally had a red-brown-snow theme, with decorated cookie trees in the yard and poinsettia vines on the house. I couldn't get the trees to layer right this time, so I replaced them with poinsettias and changed the color theme. My little story behind this design is that the house belongs to a Holly dragon, and all the hatchlings are coming over for a holiday celebration. And here is my SNOW FORT! Originally I had a large castle with a log cabin and gingerbread house, each with their own separate yard. This time I made it a little more complicated, there's a park where Snowas are building snow creatures, a forest where the white reindeer are hiding, and the Script and Aegis dragons have each built their own fort and are preparing for battle.

  14. When editing the fort, how do we scroll down the list of decorations? I remember having trouble with this last year, can't remember the fix. EDIT: Never mind, I'm an idiot.
  15. Also, all the trees are getting stuck under the other layers? there's a couple other layering glitches, too.
  16. The chimney won't go on top of the other layers. I'm trying to put a candy stick across the rooftop, and no matter what I do, the chimney always appears behind it, which looks very wrong and awkward... am I doing something wrong or is it glitching?
  17. aw, I didn't win the raffle. But, I saved enough shards (finally) to buy my first CB Gold, so I'm happy.
  18. I bred my two CBs with Brown Copper, which looked amazing, and Autumn which actually looked really nice, too. I also picked up a 2G in the AP that was with Blusang! I really wanted to do Celestial, but I thought of it too late after I'd already bred mine!
  19. I missed the end of the holiday wall T_T oh well, I did get a lot of holiday eggs this year
  20. I imagine pygmies to about the size of a large dog, with small dragons being roughly horse-sized. Mediums are maybe elephant size, and large are like... well, I've never seen a blue whale, but that's sort of what I imagine - 200 feet in length, tail not included. I feel like since there are so many dragons in this world, that not very many would grow to like the Mythical Monster Behemoth size of legend. Like, dragons the size of Smaug would be very rare because they all have to compete for resources.
  21. I finally got eggs! Now I have made my gingerbread house! But - unlike the original game, once you make the gingerbread house, the mini-game to decorate your own gingerbread house doesn't appear. Hmmm.....
  22. one day... one day there will be an egg... and I will be there to GRAB IT
  23. I am having a terrible time finding eggs...
  24. how do you get the red star recipes again?
  25. this is what my candy bar looks like: I don't know what dragon that would be...
