Long time, no see huh?
First off, thanks to all of you who sent me the awesome birthday wishes. I'm pleased to say it went over well, and again, nothing is different aside from adding one more year to the total tally.
Then there's the question, 'Where did Onyx go?'
Answer: Off to drama in my home life, mainly medical.
And again, just to confirm, nothing I have is life threatening. My body has just decided to declare war on itself.
I keep telling it no one is going to win but it doesn't listen, so I just sit back and hang on for the ride. All in all it's nothing all to unfamiliar. I do have some rather unsavory side effects to deal with thanks to all my conditions, but the main issues are the pain (which is on a very manageable scale most of the time) and tired.
I'm flipping exhausted all the time.
Which is the main reason I've been slacking off on my art and here online.
Within the next few months I have to go to quite a few different doctors. Hopefully they'll figure something out and I can stop wanting to sleep for ten to twelve hours a night.
I've also hit a bit of artists block. What time I do spend creatively is either used on sewing projects needed here around the house or, more often than not, in my writing. I will say that I do miss my visual arts, and can't wait to really start creating great pieces again. And when I do you guys will be the first to see them, I promise.
Maybe I'll work on a new deviant ID or a basic GIMP tutorial in the meantime....
Though, before I do anything that requires major computing power I have to replace my laptop's battery (it's finally going, bless it's little power cells) and I should be able to order that within the next couple of weeks.
Everyone else at home is fine though.
My brother's working on getting his drivers license.
My dad's temporary work schedule has the house in a weird from of controlled chaos. He still has a job - thank God - but his hours are nothing close to normal, so the last few months have been very strange. Even the animals have been thrown off by the change of pace. Hopefully this will all end within the next month and we can go back to having our semi-normal routine.
Also, all of our cars decided to have to throw temper-tantrums in one way or another.
But when it rains it pours, doesn't it?
All in all, things are okay. Just moving at a snail's pace.
So, how's everyone else doing?
