Hey guys, I wanted to update everyone on where I've been lately.
Well, I guess first off, sorry for being so MIA. Life gets so busy sometimes, but life is good. :3
My mother is receiving chemotherapy treatments and is doing very well. I want to extend a big thank you to all the support I got on the charity website and all the nice messages I've received. My mom's diagnosis has been very hard on my entire family, and the support I've gotten from friends, and strangers alike has been very heart-warming. Prior to chemo, my mom had a large mass in the lung, and roughly twelve small tumors in the brain. The tumors in the brain have all been taken care of by the chemo, and the mass in her lung is steadily shrinking. We are heading down the steady road to recovery. :3 So thank you everyone, I cannot express how much all this support has meant to us.
In other news, on the second week of December, my boyfriend and I welcomed home a new addition to our little family: Wrex. Wrex is a red and white male corgi, and is currently four and a half months old. We adopted him from a breeder, and he is the cutest little shit. He has a lot of energy, and we've had to spend a lot of time and attention getting him adjusted to our home and taking care of his shots and training. :3
I also came to realize how much working third shift sucks. I work full time in a warehouse, and do contract work part time through the week. It's not so bad though - the warehouse is a labor job, and is very tiring, but the pay is good, and the benefits are AMAZING. I mean, seriously, I have better benefits than most people I know with way better jobs. And sadly, that's an important part of adulthood. @.@ However, I recently switched to third shift, which is 9:30 PM to 6:00 AM. It's very tiring. But, you got to do what you got to do, right?
Lastly, the winter blues are hitting me like a freight train. It's the coldest winter we've seen in a long time, and it's definitely taking its toll. I get cold easy, and I just want to stay snuggled up in a blanket with my puppy. It's terrible.
So, excuses, excuses, I know, but I will be back to being active here. Also expect to see a lot more artwork coming out of me cause guess what?
I GOT A WACOM CINTIQ 13HD.
