@PoeticTorment: :O WOW. With a 3D printer, you'll never need to buy things again! You could just print them all!

I'm hoping that returning will be free, but I went to Amazon to see their return policy on a new cage and it said slightly used items could be subject to a restocking fee which could be up to 50% of what I paid for the cage itself. :/ I might just sell it on Craigslist because I'll at least get more money for it that way. ALSO. I'm writing this at 3AM because Pea woke me up this morning by chewing loudly on the bars.... so I think this is not at all okay and I'm DEFINITELY putting her back in the bin cage. I work at nights and even if I didn't, I don't like my sleep being disturbed by her chewing on the bars... It's not good for her teeth either. I think also, I don't want to have to wake up and move her to the closet or the bathroom every night just because she's biting. :c I will ,move her back to her bin cage tomorrow and purchase a bigger bin when I can. Because her current bin cage is only around 480 square inches, maybe a little less because it has wheels... But I found a bin at Home Depot that's 50 gallons, so it's the same size as a 40 gallon tank.
Ugh. I'm just so upset because I was having the best sleep of my life until Pea woke me up... :/ Now I'm so anxious for her teeth that I can't go back to sleep.

I hope you were able to get to sleep! <3
What time did your child end up going to bed?

@Ava: Lol If you can get a 3d model (or know how to make them) anyway.
Yeah, it's not worth sending back at that point. *^*;
I hope you get better sleep tonight.

Yeah, it was a bit late but I got to sleep in a bit.
I'm not sure? He stayed quiet while playing on his tablet. XD
I know he was asleep by midnight so probably somewhere between 11 and 12.

@PoeticTorment: That's wicked!!! :O Can you imagine all the things I'd stop buying? I'd be saving so much money with a 3D printer!! oAo

I did end up moving her back into her bin cage. :/ I might still return the cage, even if I only get half the money back... =x=; Or I might sell it on Craigslist. I don't know what I'm going to do with it just yet. But I know it's been causing more problems than solving. And I wanted the cage to be a fun, new home for her to explore and have fun in, but she's been climbing the bars, chewing on them, falling... It's just a big safety hazard for her. Not worth it. :c
Thanks! I'm sure I'll sleep a lot better with her in her bin cage again. She's a lot quieter in there with no bars to chew and no bars to climb.

Sleeping in feels so good! =w= I'm glad you got to sleep in a little!
Oh, that's pretty late! :O

@Ava: Yeah, cause once you have the model; it's pretty much free. XD
Yeah, it's probably better for her safety anyway. *^*
Very true. I still feel really tired though.
Yeah, it is... It's his normal sleep time.
I'm working on making him sleep before 11 but it hasn't worked yet. lol

My internet is down, using a hotspot atm so might not be on until it's fixed.
Like it's a town wide outage. *^*;

      @PoeticTorment: Yes, I needs them.
      I don't have enough for a bundle yet and I must get at least one.

@Anarchist Beauty: I give away whatever extra currency I have left so if you want it, I can toss it your way?
I've already gotten what I needed so I won't use it. XD

@PoeticTorment: All the money you could save with a 3D printer!! oAo Endless possibilities!

So I did end up moving her into a bigger bin cage. I spent three hours putting it together. She seems happy in there. I'm glad. =w=

I hope you get some really, really good sleep soon. The kind that makes you feel refreshed when you wake up. :)

Don't feel bad, my parents never gave me a "sleep time" it was just like, "Ava, you go to bed, but you can sleep when you get tired." It always worked better for me to do things that way. Especially since I liked to stay up late and watch Inuyasha on Adult Swim, even during school. >3< So I never really had a time that I was supposed to be in bed or asleep. It was just a matter of sleeping when I got tired.

Uh oh! I hope that the outage is over soon. :C Power outages always scare me!

@Ava: Yeah. So far it's just been used for craft stuffs. But I enjoy messing with the models. *^*

Oh, that's good! I'm glad it worked out. And I'm sure the metal cage could sell pretty easy.

Thanks! I did manage to get a bit more rest. Still a bit tired but I feel like I got real sleep this time. lol

Yeah, that's how it works out for kiddo. Though I do try to convince him to sleep before 11. XD

Yeah, it's been fixed! It wasn't power, thankfully! Cause that'd be worse.. *^*;
It was just the internet so anyone who had AT&T had no internet for a few days until it was fixed.
I ended up using all my phone internet up in that short period but I was happy things worked out.

@PoeticTorment: What's your favorite thing to print with a 3D printer?? :D

You know what? I actually went on Amazon and asked if I could return the cage and they are allowing me to return it for no fee. I just have to drop it off at an Amazon pod at my local Kohl's. So I will (hopefully!) get my full money back!

Oh hey, that's great! Did you have good dreams? :D

My parents used to say that I never slept a whole night until I was about three or four years old, so they probably just gave up on trying to get me to sleep and preferred to let me sleep when I got tired. And honestly, if I didn't get enough sleep the night before, they'd say, "You have no one to blame but yourself" :/

Oh, that's much better then! Still sucks that the internet went out but at least it wasn't the power. :D Power outages are so scary to me. :< And it sucks for people with reptile pets too because they rely on heat to stay alive most of the time. And fish too.

@Ava: Little figures! I've done a few of my favorite characters.
I don't know? I don't ever remember my dreams.
Lol That's how it has to be sometimes.
Yep! Fully agree. *^*

@PoeticTorment: Oh mygoodness! Thank you. :D I appreciate that. >w<

Free figures of your favorite characters is enough to make buying a 3D printer worth it!

I usually remember all of my dreams, but they kinda fade over time.

Yeah. My parents felt like it was a better lesson to let me stay awake and then let me complain about being tired the next day. But I always had so much energy, I really didn't need much sleep during the day. Is that how your son is, too?

@Ava: Not a problem. Hopefully, it wasn't too late. XD

Lol Yeah, if there are free files of them anyway. Otherwise, you have to buy the file to use but depending on the file, it can be really cheap.
Like just a few bucks. *^* I have one painted but the others I haven't gotten to yet. (I found that nail polish or model paint works great.)

Oh, lucky! XD Most of the time it feels like I didn't dream at all.

Lol That's a really good way to do it. And yeah, pretty much! Though he doesn't tend to complain about being tired.
He'll just curl up and fall asleep if he feels he needs it. Even if it's not a good place to fall asleep. (Like the floor, in the middle of the walkway.)
