    OH MY GOSH VELVET THAT'S AMAZING NEWS! I knew it as soon as you asked me to guess! THANK THE LORD! Oh I'm so happy she's safe and getting to stay with you! And omg her response was great! That's what I decided I'd do if my dad got any custody over me! I'd just run away every single time he took me! Omg everything's going to be okay now! :') I'm so relieved! That guy won't be able to hurt her or do anything and she'll have a future and people who love her and.... everything! Thank you so much for telling me! I can't comprehend why she would want to see her dad but like you said that's for another time. I pray she is not pregnant but if she is I hope she tells you. Haha your response is exactly what I would do so lady-like or not I think it's appropriate! ;) Poor Goldy, I hope he doesn't take it too hard. He was the one who she responded to at mouseheart so I don't understand why she's mad at him again. But there will be time for them to grow back together. I'm so glad she did the right thing and came home! Good she felt a little bad about it to but I know she was scared and confused. But being with you guys will help her I think. It's great that the foster care is letting you guys have a trial run to. Just... wow. Everything worked out! You and Matt made up, your mom's off the ranch, your dad's in jail, Goldy's taking care of the ranch, and now Mouse is home! :D Keep me updated on what Mouse tells you and how everything goes but I'm just thrilled to know all of that! You three can finally all be a family again! :) ~ Lilywolf &hearts

    I feel ya, if there's anyone here who knows what its like to not want to be associated with an insane family member it's us lol. I just really hate the fact that a grown person can not see how horrible it is to force children to be braver than they should have to be. We didn't get to see Mouse today though. I didn't go to sleep until four last night and then went to get the paperwork Goldy and I have to fill out and then had to go to work for a bit so they know I still exist. Goldy didn't even wake up until almost 5 this afternoon and when he called to see if he could come by she said no again so yeah. He's really not doing too good, I don't want him to leave home anyways. He hasn't eaten a thing since Wednesday. I'm worried the fact that she keeps saying no to him visiting will affect when the decide if she can stay with him or not. These people seriously read into every last thing so I know they keep track of it. Anyways, nothing new right now except that Goldy decided if Mouse gets to stay with one of us he's going to make my mom move. We'd finally have the ranch to ourselves! Oh that'd be the most amazing thing! I just want to Mouse to not be alone. If sje didn't have anyone to talk to that she knows I worry she'd be left alone in a world of fears about what could be coming. At least you're part of her old life so to speak so she doesn't feel completely lost. Aye aye aye I'm so tired! I hope you had a good day, I'll see if Goldy wants to read or respond to your posts. I'll hopefully remember to check here tommorow evvening, good night!

    I swear she was just there! She said she wanted to talk to you but if you didn't want to that was okay. Or something like that! It was only up for like 5 minutes and then she must have posted over it! But if she knows you saw it maybe she'll come back on. Haha little sisters! What to do with them! ~ Lilywolf &hearts

    Of course I will! Yeah I'm so happy Lilywolf I can't even put it into words! There is officially nothing bad about my old life still in the way, everything will be upwards and onwards from now on! :D I'm suprised Goldy's not around though... I went to get my clothes and a few other things, I left Twix and Yoda so he wouldn't be there completely alone lol, and Mouse's cat had a panic attack when she saw her it was the funniest thing ever until she let loose on my carpet lol! -Velvetstar-

    Lol that's hilarious, sounds gross, but hilarious lol! It was good, I'm guessing Mouse or Goldy told you? He took me to this resturant that's on a boat on the lake, and the bottom floor was an arcade so after we ate we spent the night playing skiball. He's so awesome Lilywolf it's amazing! :D I know Goldys mad at him because of the horse but he didn't do it on purpose. He nearly cried taking me to the hospital, probably because he knew Goldy was gonna eat his head off like a praying matis haha! But I love him, he has flaws but when I think about all the things I'd want in a soul mate it's in him. It's crazy, sometimes I don't even think it's real!

    Hey girl! Thanks! Yeah it is really crazy and scary cuz I'm always the sick one lol. But I think he's doing pretty good, they keep putting him to sleep, since apparently that's the only way to let the meds and stuff get to his brain. It sounds stupid when I explain it lol but yeah he's gonna be okay. He'll probably be rping a lot once he's home, he isn't allowed back at the ranch for three weeks just so everything can heal before he risks getting hurt again. But yeah, he seems pretty ok with Matt, I can tell it still worries him but I'm really happy and I'm just glad he's okay with it. How are you doing??? No more psychotic bfs right? ;) lol I'll probably be asleep by the time you respond! Night! -Velvet-

    Dang even Goldenstars in a bad mood!? What's his problem? Haha! Well hopefully he and Goldy get the sticks out of their bu<_>tts lol! How was your day? Hows Rosie doing? Me and my bf, his names Matthew btw I just realized I never said his name lol. But we were together all day and I think I saw Goldy flinch once or twice but otherwise things were good. He still hasn't said anything! I hope he knows all he's accomplishing is freaking me out. And since he's being akward, it only stands to reason I'm going to spend more time with Matt. That boy...
