  1. Thanks guys! I know I haven't been active lately. School, work, and mini me have kept me busy. Plus we have another little one on the way. I've still got another year and a half left in school but I am getting a 4.0 gpa so it's going well. Hoping I'll be able to get back to painting here soon.
  2. I used apoxysculpt it's cheaper lol. Also you should see the shoulder hair and baby beard he has going. I heard of a technique I wanted to try called self painting. Currently, he is in the NICU as he hadn't peed in the first 24 hours. They have him a catheter and it has helped. He has no blockages or abnormalities in that area so he must have picked up his dad's laziness. They are removing g the catheter today to see if he can go on his own. Definitely lately a rough 24 hours but things are looking up.
  3. Thank you all for the birthday wishes. It has been a bittersweet day for sure. I've spent the day with my new son, but he has to remain at the hospital in the NICU as he has yet to pee on his own. He should come home tommorrow as long as he can pee. He has a catheter right now. On the upside, he is otherwise doing great. He lost a few points in piloting but he will regain them soon enough. (We joked he was piloting a mech while he was in the womb and momma was the mech lol) I appreciate all of the birthday wishes. I will be posting soon new minis once my new mini get out of the NICU.
  4. Introducing Theodore Emerson Meyer 7lb 8.6oz 20.5" Born 09/25/18 at 1125pm. I made a mini! Hes finally here! Momma is doing well, just sore. We call him Teddy for short though.
  5. The house if officially ours! YAY!!!! Its been a long road to get there but its done. I'm officially a resident of Indianapolis. Now to get everything moved over and find work...
  6. 23 weeks and all is well! And we found out its a boy!
  7. So, after a month or so of back and forth, we should be closing on Monday! The seller didn't fix everything the first time and in a couple places even caused more damage to the property. Hopefully everything has been sorted out now. I'll know for sure on Sunday when we walk through again.
  8. Got all mine and have 16 left to put together. So far I think I'm missing 2 and have 1 mini missing a part but I'll know for sure later tonight when I finish. Not bad at all. BTW, Not a fan of gluing hover bases and flight bases together.
  9. UPDATE! The seller has agreed to fix everything we asked for! That's no small thing as we had a 2 page repair list we gave him. As it sits we will close on the house early next month unless the repairs take longer to complete. I gotta start looking for a new job now...
  10. We weren't even trying I swear! Honestly, we had given up on the idea after 8 years of trying. Nope, they are an investment in the kids college fund. You can pay for college with minis right? If not, I have time to find a way to make it happen... Yep. That's me in the pic. dressed as Bob Ross... (the squirrel was my idea.) Thanks! I've already started to try to loose some weight so I can keep up. I'm not worried about time for hobbies. i have so many minis and bones are cheap enough that the little one can join me during painting time and I wont feel bad that it was painted sloppily. I started the years ago... Thanks everyone for the support. Other than Mrs. Fishnjeeps feeling nauseous most of the time and her heightened sense of smell, things are pretty much the same as it always has been. I don't think it will really hit me until the kiddo is born or the baby shower happens. Still, its something we are welcoming with open arms and open hearts. Now I gotta get the house so we can afford to live normalish lives.
  11. Hello all! Some of you may know we have been trying to move now for almost a year. This news is not about that... Its way better. FISHNJEEPS IS HAVING A BABY!!!!!!!!!!! We just started our 2nd Trimester last weekend and we are extremely excited. I wast told by 2 different doctors that kids were not possible yet here we are! Mrs. Fishnjeeps is dooing well so far and Little fishnjeeps is healthy and so far shows no signs of any birth defects. We don't know what we are having yet though I'mm saying boy until I'm told otherwise. I just had to share with my mini family.
  12. Inspection complete (sorta). Our radon test was moved which makes it invalid. We have to have the seller pay for a new one. Beyond that the house is in good shape. We have some things we have to ask to be repaired by the seller so we shall see how things go in the next few weeks. I also found some new info about the previous house that makes me glad we didn't get it now. So far things are working out in our favor. More info to come...
  13. I started trying to loose weight 30 days ago. I've lost 13lbs so far in that 30 days! I'm using an app along with a fitness tracker that is compatible with said app to track food and exercise. I haven't gone on some crazy diet nor have I joined a gym. I've simply limited my soda Intake (not cut it out entirely) and added more veggies. The biggest thing is limiting my calories per day. My app helps me track my calories and gives me my limits. It also changes my allowed calories as I lose weight or exercise. I thought I'd join up here too and join everyone else.
  14. Thanks for the support everyone. It has been a trying experience for sure. HOWEVER, We finally got an accepted offer on a house! Matter of fact, I have to drive to Indy Sunday night after Adepticon so I'm there in the morning for the house inspection. Also, I haven't seen the house in person yet. (Mrs. Fishnjeeps did a video chat to show it to me. Technology can be a wonderful thing.) For those keeping track. The house is on the east side of the city in the Emerson Heights neighborhood. Doug: Yes it is a short drive. We have been going to a church in Franklin the my sister in law goes to. I hope to see you at Adepticon!
  15. Right, so I haven't posted in a while. Things have been busy since my last post and its not all good. Here's the story... After 8 MONTHS of waiting we finally got the title issue resolved on the house we wanted. However, we then found out that the seller had not been paying the mortgage on the property since we initially signed the contract and the property was in foreclosure which nullified our contract to buy. To say we were pissed would be an understatement. Sadly, there is little we could do to the seller for causing this. So we moved on to starting over and finding a new place. That was in February. The downside to starting over is that prices have gone up above our budget. The few houses we have put offers in on we end up getting outbid. (We've put in 2 other offers since February) We are still working on trying to find a new place but its looking like a frustrating uphill battle. We've expanded our search area a bit to most of the south of Indianapolis down to Franklin. (its a fairly large area) but so far, no go. We are close to a year now since we started looking. On top of all this, we have had some other wrenches put into the works that I can't talk about just yet but it makes moving even more necessary. I haven't painted anything in over a year, and my Bones order is still in its box waiting patiently for me to get to it. On the upside, I will be at adepticon again this year helping Reaper out at there booth. I didn't think I'd be in Chicago for it, but I am. I'm looking forward to it. So that's what is going on. I'm still alive and still around. I'll keep updating until we find a place.
  16. Let me move in and fix the bathroom. i wont be going anywhere until we have a working bathroom.
  17. Sorry, Its on hold while I move. Also, Mrs. Fishnjeeps used the foam for another project so I will have to redo the terrain once I do get back to it.
  18. UPDATE:! Our closing has been pushed back twice now due to an issue on the sellers part. As it sits now, we won't be closing until december. Nearly everything has been packed since august which sucks but, it will be worth it once we finally close on this place! To put more of a damper on things, my truck decided to throw half of a leaf out of one of its leaf springs to the tune of $600 in parts. (I'm replacing both sides or it would only cost half that) Its not an expense we were expecting but we need the truck to move with. I really hope I can remember how to paint once I finally get a chance to do so again. It's looking like that will be sometime in February at this rate.
  19. Right, so update time... The inspection on the house went well and we have a finished and agreed inspection response settled. Now we are waiting for the bank to send their appraiser over to make sure we aren't overpaying (I really don't think we are). Then we continue our waiting game for closing. That so far is the hardest part. Our house is mostly packed now and we are having a garage sale next week to help purge more stuff and hopefully help defray moving costs. Until then, back to my lazy boy...
  20. Go Buglips! If I wasn't moving soon and my hobby supplies werent packed already I'd join you.
  21. Just south of 465. Near Southport area.
  22. Geez a LOT has happened the last couple weeks. The short story is we found a house and now have an accepted offer! We are working on the next steps to closing on this and owning our first house. the property is really huge. It's a 3bed 1 bath ranch with 2 bonus rooms and a attached garage sitting on 1.2 acres. Plus a shed and a 2 story barn to make into an awesome workshop. Next week is our inspection so hopefully we don't have any more issues than we already know about. The house needs a little work but nothing I can't do myself. Also, I have my school schedule for my first semester set. I start school on August 21st. As they say, we have a long way to go and a short time to get there.
  23. Realtor found! We spent the day today looking at houses. Found a couple promising ones. Sadly, I've packed up my game room and all of my painting supplies. I have no less than 6 large boxes of minis that are unpainted and I still have more to pack. Tomorrow I take my assessments and hopefully sign up for my classes.
  24. Mine is out for delivery, I should have my minions Minis tonight!
