Well, I have really sucked at keeping up with things. We lost one of the baby polish (no idea what caused it), Mim has continued to thrive and grow stronger (as do Sy and Fin), One-Two and Mumbles have acclimated to living with Ronan and Lucien (Ronan and Lucien are having issues with each other), and everything keeps moving forward.

{Risky Business} June and July Accounting

I’m a slacker!

Things have been a little/lot not great for me on a personal level. Depression is a hell of a thing and there’s not much I can do about it since I’m always going to have it thanks to my TBI. Just have to work through it by taking time to do things that get my mind off of the stuff that’s been triggering the depression (still being unemployed, being denied financial help with my disabilities, not having the type of support system I need, still trying to come to grips with how I am now and not dwelling on how I used to be, etc). I’ve been doing the art for the Patreon supporters and working with the birds, lots of walks with Sy, Fin, and Mim or Arya and Toki, and working on a possible new element to add to my portfolio/shop.

I have been keeping track of the accounting, as I was an accounting technician for 5 years, I just haven’t had the mental energy to post it here in a timely manner. So! Here is the last two months so you know what money is coming into the “business” and where it is being used:
