Hi everyone, I hope all is well with all of you.
Well, as to be expected a lot has happened since my last journal. I moved again, and will probably be moving houses yet again tomorrow or within the next couple days. However, I finished a couple game assignments during this transitional period, which is a huge plus. I want to resume commission work tomorrow, working on the traditional lines and getting to digital inking once I'm settled back in my "main" house-of-stay, but we'll see how far I get. Right now I'm helping Mom around the house and trying not to let myself get any sicker (I'm extremely fatigued with a sore throat, I need to be kinder to myself).
It's far from free yet though, as court dates are coming up within the next handful of days. So. Much. Stress! It's not a nice environment to be in, but I'm desperately trying to persevere, keep afloat, and focus on the time that's coming ahead. Afterall, in November I got a fortune cookie that read "The coming month shall bring you much happiness", and I'm willing to invest a lot of belief in that little piece of paper! Goodness knows I need the hope.
If you guys could pray for me and/or send good vibes, it would be exceptionally appreciated. I need to have some form of stability. I need peace of mind that Elwood will be ok when my husband comes to visit me. I need to feel safe in and after court. I desperately want my husband to (and this is out of his control, though he does his best so please pray--!) acquire the 5 extra work hours he needs for me to go back home to Holland and remain permanently. These are some of the foremost things on my mind that I need prayer for the most.
I apologize I've let some notes remain unanswered, I haven't had much energy lately. I hope you all understand though. I've been thinking, if I get a chance in December and it's alright with my commissionees, I'd like to do a personal artwork should I find the time. What I have in mind would be SO much fun--! A larger artwork to be sure, but a precious one that would be a fantastic way to end the year (at least a bad year with little to no personal artwork). I really hope I get a chance to do it. Maybe you guys could pray for that, too!
All my best to all of you, I miss goofing off and chatting with you guys so much.
