This drill is the drill that will pierce the heavens!
Things are crazy busy and while I can't say that I am free from stress, anxiety or sadness I feel a lot better equipped to deal with it then I did a year ago. Mark and I are both happy, getting even more healthy and spending more time together then ever before. I love working full time again as a nanny but I don't love the conditions or the fact that I don't get paid. The twins are awesome though and with hope things will improve rapidly.... Like in two weeks. For the last several months Mark and I have been working on our 45g saltwater aquarium and I've fallen in love with every creature in it, especially my troublesome hermit crab who is the sole reason for a FOWLER (fish only with live rock) tank staying in the home, and not a reef tank. But a couple weeks ago Mark decided to get me a mini tank, a Biocube 14g that I have fallen madly in love with and have since started the process of getting it ready to sustain life.
So far it's had live sand, rocks and water for 3 weeks. I added 5 hermit crabs during week 2 and they have done well, all of them are still living. We got some small tiny coral frags attached to some of our rocks and i'm telling you they are really cool. I've started lusting hardcore after a macro lens instead of the 70-200 I've wanted for years because I'm largely unsatisfied with how much detail I can get on these tiny creatures. I want to see the texture, the fine hairs and contrasting colors and personalities. I want to see how my tiny little ecosystem thrives and what it really really looks like!
That's next on my list of shit-your-pants-awesome things I want these days. Including to spend a considerable amount of money towards improving The Cube's filtration and current. I want my little coral to live and thrive it would dazzle me beyond compare to see this little angel thrive. I'm so excited to learn more and more about each hobby and maybe, with luck, explore it with a macro pair of eyes.
