On the evening of the 21st, our beloved
breathed his last bubble.
Okay, so this is what happened. I had a longer day of work on Thursday, I babysat the boys, and got home late. So I was getting ready for bed, which includes feeding Scooby Doo his nightly dinner. I went to the tank and he was no longer the beautiful aqua like Scooby's collar, but sheet white and belly up.
I wasn't fully sure what to do, so I waited till morning to take care of the dead. We ceremoniously (not really) placed him in the toilet. A few words were spoken (more like three, 'Goodbye Scooby Doo') and mourners cried (more like my little sister shedding one tear). But alas, our beloved fish, Scooby Doo is now sleeping where fishes lie in a human society.

We went shopping at a thrift store, a pawn shop, at Albertsons, etc. Today we're going to Hobby Lobby and Wal-Mart for things that Punkin needs to make me a...dress...*gasp*!
It's for the Renaissance Festival, so it's not anything like a Sunday dress or anything.
But It's been an awesome couple of days. I pray that Lissi will be able to stay in CO. (Little note in here from Lissi: And I pray that Legolas will ALWAYS be one of my best friends. :) ) Love you so much Girl!!
Well, I need to get back to spending time with the Awesome Lissi! See you all soon!

And your thinking, what does this have to do with fitness....
Well, I'm coming to that. After the service and after we got her kids in bed, we decided to watch 10th Kingdom together. (5 hours of a totally cool movie, with a guy named wolf...it really made me want a 'wolf' in my life...he was plain wonderful.) MangyCat ended up going to bed, then after the movie, about 2:30 a.m., I went to sleep on the foot-on.
In the morning, MangyCat took me to 24 Hour Fitness. It was a day that members could bring a friend for free. She's a member and I was the friend. So we did a half hour on the elliptical, then we swam some laps, and lastly sat in the hot tub for a few minutes. Then we showered and went home. But before we left, I talked to one of the employees at 24 and I got myself a membership!
It was $30 cheaper then if I had gotten the membership any other day, there was a deal going on only Sat, and I am so glad I got it! Now I can work out with more enthusiasm, and with a lot more equipment. I can swim (which I adore!), run, lift weights, shoot hoops, and much more. And the people there are so nice and encouraging. I'm very grateful that God provided the finances for me to be better about taking care of myself.
On a side note, Kale is 100% better. Yippee! Thank you for your prayers!

She just has a lot of health problems. Thankfully when we took her to the vet the first time he tested her for all types of things like cancer, epilepsy, liver and kidney problems. Everything is fine. She doesn't have cancer or anything else. It's just he stupid respiratory problem. If we can't get her to eat soon she might, over time, die.
Please be in prayer for her. I really don't want her to die, and I don't want to give her away. I just got her and she's the perfect pet for me. She's so loving and she adores being with me. Please pray that she'll get better and that she's eat. Please that she'll eat! Please! *tear*

I praise the Lord for this whole circumstance! Mom and I have made a deal. Mom will pay for Kale and all her vet bills and food and cat liter while I'm living at home. When I move out, I'll be taking Kale with me and then I'll take control of all the financially stuff. My job is to take care of Kale. Feed her, change her cat litter, and give her plenty of attention. ;) That's the best part!
And don't worry, my fish Scooby-Doo is doing well. He loves his tank and I haven't had any trouble with him. And Kale doesn't know he exists, so he's safe.

My cousin Emily came over from Idaho and is playing a really important character. All of our Pastors are involved, and several friends. We so far haven't hit any major road blocks or even small ones.
We are using real weapons, and thankfully no one has gotten hurt, at least from the weapons. On of our friends landed on some cactus and had little needles all over his hand. Each one of us had small cuts, bruises, scrapes and blisters from climbing all over Palmer Park and falling and punching and throwing...basically a lot of physical stuff.
The thing is, we still have at least nine more days...most likely more...of just filming. Then comes the part where we put it together scene by scene, add music, put extras in order and in a proper menu, etc.
We've had a few power struggles. Basically because it's my brothers movie, yet he's asked for my help, only some times he wouldn't accept it. But that's straightened out, so the rest of the filming should move more smoothly.
Just pray for me. I've gotten really stressed because I'm still working, still going to school, still doing chores, and several other extra things for other people, and I'm helping with my brother's movie. *large sigh!* I've cried several times in past two days because I'm over-whelmed...big time!
But the movie should be over soon...

A lot has been happening in the life of Legolas.
The last week of January I began a watercolor class at the Bemis School of Art, Thanks to Mrs. Paul pushing me into it. ;) So I've been learning a lot and stunning people with my paintings even though this is the first time in any type of watercolor class.
Well, one of the other lady's taking the class owns an art gallery in Manitou. She really thought I had potential in the art field but she jumped with excitement when she saw a picture of an angel that I had painted in one of the classes.
She grabbed me by the shoulders and said, "You have to give me that picture and put it in my gallery!"
I must say that I thought she was over-reacting or was just being silly, but no. She was adamantly serious. So I've thought of the prospect of me selling my pictures through her gallery for many nights. Mom and I discussed a lot of things and we went to Manitou and saw her gallery. Mom was comfortable. I was comfortable.
Ever since then, I've been painting nothing but angels. I've made the backgrounds better and fiddled around with their positions, and each time I make a new painting, its better then the first. And everyone loves them.
Of course, to get the pieces ready for the gallery, I have to mat and frame them. Thanks to God the frames and mats were on sale this week. So now they're ready for me to bring them to the art gallery.
My hope is that all this work in getting the pictures made and presentable will not be for nothing. I know that might sound greedy, but the only way an artist can make more paintings is if the first ones are bought. And that only happens if people like them.
If you want to visit the gallery, here's the address.
Fare Bella Studio and Gallery
16 Ruxton Ave.
Manitou Springs (Manitou Springs/Ute Pass) CO 80829
Many other things have been going on, this past month.
I finally gave mom and dad the last payment for my car! It's now officially mine! :)
Some of you may know, but I'm striving to lose weight. So I'm to exercise more, eat less junk food and more health food. Please pray for me in this area, because it is hard to lose weight when one likes to eat. My goal is to get to 150 this year. At least to 150, then I can go lower in number after I've reached that digit.
One thing that is giving me some stimulation is that I really want to dye my hair. (Bleached with blue streaks.) And I've told myself that I can't do that until I've reached 150 lbs. And I want my hair dyed like that for the summer, so I really want to lose weight before summer time. *crosses fingers* Please!

He's a Delta Tail Betta. I named him Scooby Doo because his color is very much like Scooby's collar. And I always name pets with names that can't be used for people. So, If I ever had children I wouldn't be able to name a son Scooby Doo. Thus it is a name fit for a pet. Scooby will be the first of many pets that I hope to own in my lifetime.
When I get a dog, on that day in the future, I'll name him Xanatos. And Joker will be my first cat's name. My next Betta will probably be Darth Vadar. And, if I ever got one *please!*, if I ever adopted a bat his name would be Bruce. As in 'Bruce Wayne' a.k.a Batman.
But right now, I'm really happy that Scooby Doo is in my life. It just makes me smile when I think that I can come home and look into his little bowl and see him swim around. I thank God for giving me the ability to buy him. I just hope he lives long.
