AR1_6383 It's been a bit quiet here. For those that don't know, I've been sick for a bit over 2 weeks which has completely blown apart any plans I had for this month. At first I had a toothache which turned into a severe infections which wiped out my immune system and ended up with me sick. I was on a cocktail of medication to help with the infection, fever, severe congestion, and then I ended up scratching my eye because the medications dried me out. So my eye swelled.

The tooth was pulled and it's been a long, hard week of trying to recover. My mouth hurts. I still can't breathe through my nose. I just want to sleep all the time.


To top it all off, we took in a little stray kitty we named Mae Mae. She's been super friendly and we've been feeding her outside, but today we take her to the vet and start trying to introduce her to the other cats. She's pregnant and so we're going to foster her and her kitties and try to re-home them all. I've never had a pregnant cat or dealt with something like this so it's all new, but I'm excited to help her with her little kitties. She's a complete sweetheart.

I'm also redoing my office and clearing a bunch of junk out of it. I feel like I go through periods where I just feel claustrophobic and I just want to throw everything away. So I'm tossing my desks and looking into just getting one long desk or building one. I have some plants in there now and I condensed everything to my art shelves. It's looking nice but still has a bunch of work.


Being sick, I haven't been able to do much. I'm still doing my 365 Project, I just need to upload all my pictures and post them. I need to work on a bunch of paintings with deadlines soon. My goals for the month are shot to hell. Maybe this week I'll try to do a catch up post.

Next month is going to be busy. I'm headed to Dallas for my sister's gender reveal party, Staple in Austin the following weekend, Hub City Comic Con, and then we're taking a weekend trip to Meow Wolf in Santa Fe. Almost every weekend is busy.


And then Halloween season is fast approaching along with Inktober. I need to catch my breath before it all starts and I need to avoid overwhelming myself again like last year.

We're staying busy and these will all be great experiences. I'm getting better. I just need to get organized, get focused, and get back into my rhythm.


So look out for new posts, but give me a bit of time to get back into things. I'm gonna try and do some more art posts, I have a style post in the works, I'll do one about Mae Mae, and Pride Fest is this weekend.

All the pictures in this post were taken by my sister when she was down to visit us. Tabby had a lot of fun playing with all the cats and we managed to wrangle the dogs to take an updated family photo.

Be sure to check out her work at Amanda Raylee Photography and follow her on Facebook.


Until next time
