[ GENERAL UPDATE ]
Hello~ Been a while since I've sat down and did an update on life I suppose. Things have been...well...busy! Been keeping myself and my daughter alive on a daily basis. So far, so good! Slowly working on the house we moved into a couple years ago. I can't believe it has already been 2 years since my daughter was born and we moved into our first house. Time sure is passing me by. That's for sure.
Along with the usual daily life of keeping my little monster in check, I've been working on ideas and plans for our backyard. We have to take little steps with it but so far we have brand new wooden fencing all around our backyard. All sides were practically falling apart and full of holes before. It feels great to have new fences but it is only the beginning. We still need to have the ground prepared for turf, install turf, have cement paths made along the fence edges and then have wooden planters built along the top of the cement paths. It's a quest to remove all dirt from the backyard and make it a fun place to hang out in. And then eventually we will put a fire pit out there and a hidden pool under the ground that the turf opens up to reveal. :} It will be cool to actually have a backyard to BBQ or read in, etc.
In other news, my tablet died on me. So I can't do any art (that I am comfortable with anyway-- I suck at traditional IMO). This thing survived a nice 5 year lifespan. Though in the last 2 years it was bugging out pretty hardcore. If anyone is wondering, it was a Wacom Intuos 4 Medium. I used it very heavily. It was a good tablet. But I have good news! A new tablet is arriving next week~ Yay! I'm pretty excited. This time I'm going to be trying out a Wacom Intuos Pro Pen & Touch Medium. I -really- wish I could have gotten faster shipping (of course I get a drawing urge while the tablet is dead) but oh well. At least I get a new tablet soon~
More random rambling, I started getting myself into shape. I'm not fat or anything (I'm a tad overweight) but I'm definitely not as active as I used to be and it started to affect my self image (a long with a bunch of ugly things thanks to my pregnancy). Instead of complaining about how shitty I feel about myself, I decided to start slow and I now walk about 2 miles every other day. I'm to a point now where I don't dread going outside and I actually want to go on walks (I'm a super hermit, okay? XD In fact I'm so hermity that I have to get back my original skin pigment. Let's just say I no longer am a dark Mexican...I'm a very pale as fuck Mexican... It makes me sad I let myself do this to me but I'm gonna fix it)
. Now if only I could fix the nightmare that is my belly button. A month after my daughter was born I had to get surgery to remove my gallbladder. Because of it I now have half a normal belly button (one side is an inny and one side is an outy LOL). It looks like shit. XD
ANYWHO, I started to ramble there since I never talk to anyone about this shit I guess. Thanks for reading though this junk if you did. XD ILU
Many Hugs. Shaythulhu
