I am... a bit heartsick. Because it was my prize penguiny possession. And because it was a gift from Nickie. And... yeah.
I have attacked it with E6000 - I don't know if it's the best glue for the project, but it's the strongest I have in the house. Matching little penguiny feet up by break-lines. When possible. Some of the feet were just shattered to dust. I'll need to build them up again with Sculpey - mizarchivist, got any yellow?
The child was horrified. "Omigod, Mommy, I'm so sorry, it was an accident!"
And it was. She was careless, pulling a picture out from behind the menorah (the menorah was in front of the picture specifically to prop it up).
Me, falling to my knees to gather up shards: "It's okay."
Her: "No, it's not."
Me: "Well... no. It's not okay. But I know you didn't mean to do it."
She kept apologizing til I told her to please stop apologizing. She's back upstairs. I've done my level best to fix the menorah, but I can't, not completely. And so I am typing here because I am upset, but I don't need to be yelling at her about it; she chastises herself enough.
Just... fucking hell, man. *shakes head* I'll continue to try.
