Spent the whole day fighting a migraine. The guys at work felt sorry for me. I was able to break through the other side around 4pm. I had a teacher conference for my oldest daughter. I filed for our new health insurance. I am exhausted. Need a good night sleep. Will need to snuggle with the wife tonight. That always makes me feel better.
I need love more and more in my life. Without love I can feel the very fabric of life disintegrating around me. I once was content to being alone. Now I’m addicted to love. I’ve had some of the pure stuff. The love that gives you that goofy grin. Love that makes you believe in the human race. I had a rough day hauling the 4 kids around all by myself as we hit the black friday sales. Nothing like chasing a 3 year old around stores because He thought the new game was run and hide. SO feeling a little exhausted. It was nice to get a hug from the wife when I came home. She saw how beaten up I was and made me soup from last nights turkey. In the last two days I have enjoyed family and chased deals on stuff. I have found no matter how trying family can be it doesn’t compare to the soul sucking that comes from shopping for stuff. Stuff that may only be used once. I need to spend some time to night snuggling with the wife.
Happy to be feeling better. Sunday I was in intense pain. Had to go to the hospital. Ended up passing a kidney stone monday morning. It was about half the size of a pea. Very thankful to have family to love me. Happy to have loved ones to take care of my family while I was sick. I was a grumpy Gus the whole time. Haven’t slept in the last few days. Very tired. Time to hit the hay. Enjoy tonights drawing.
Having fun playing with shapes. I also wanted to experiment with negative space. This was a fun quick piece. I was thinking are we ever truly alone? I think we make ourselves alone more than we are actually alone. There is always more people in our life that love us than we care to admit. At least that is how it is in my life. Lately life has been a little dark for me I am hoping I can brighten it up this summer.
It’s been a long day. It started with one simple mistake and kept building from there. I am close to crying. I have reached the end of my rope. I am trying to do this blog while my wife tries to get our three year old to sleep. He keeps wanting to know what I am doing. I have enough coffee in the morning to make a cup. I pray tomorrow is better. We need a small miracle.
So bust today i posted something on Instagram and am to busy to see in anyone like it. I wish it was for fun reason but no just work. Plus tired. Haven’t been sleeping well again. Need to get some sleep. My kids did make me laugh with their protests about going back to school tomorrow. The have really been enjoying their break.
Took care of all four kids tonight since the wife is at work. The wind is really howling outside. the painting over the fireplace mantle is rattling. It’s been a long day. Earlier I helped my dad put in a new front door at his place. Will be ready for bed tonight.
I first starting putting in drawings of Ellen to see if the wife would notice. She caught on but I wanted to see if I could do it for 30 days. This is the last one. I dream of being on Ellen some day. I will keep reaching for that dream every day. I don’t think I did to bad of a job for a rush job. Keep dreaming, keep loving and drawing those hearts.
A very productive day until one of the little ones got sick. Learned how to add text to my images for my upcoming kids book. Very excited. Was a little frustrating at times getting the hang of it but finally got it to work. Fixed printer. Printed a sample page. Even surprised the wife. She loves seeing progress.
