Another personal post

So I went with another vacation picture for this post. I wasn't sure what else to do for it. It's me feeding a 'guanaco' which is some sort of llama. I fed it at the Sevierville Deer Farm, which has a pretty cool petting zoo.

The meat of the message today on this post has nothing to do with vacation, though. I just was at a loss as to what picture to put up, and that one seemed good enough.

When I posted Friday about starting this blog back and working on it near daily, I may have spoken too soon. I'm not intending on abandoning it again, but I've got a lot more on my plate than I first thought I did.

My mom is in the hospital, she has been for some time now, and she's not doing well at all. It's really looking like we're going to lose her, and soon.

This isn't a plea for sympathy, and I'm not looking for a bunch of sympathy comments (they are nice, I just don't want anyone to feel obligated)...I really just wanted to let you know kind of where I'm at right now, so if I drop the ball on this thing, there's a reason. I'm going to try to not let that happen, though.

I'm BACK! AGAIN! Fo' Reals!

Alright, it's been too damned long since I posted. I got no excuse, other than I get bored with shouting into the vacuum, which is exactly what blogging feels like sometimes.

Anyway, I just got back from a birthday/vacation, so I thought now was a good time to get started back on this thing. The smiling puffer fish picture was one I took while there. It's from the Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg, TN.

Art wise, I've been painting a lot. My Etsy shop has plenty new in it. I got a scroll saw for Christmas, so that's adding to my bag of tricks! I've finished, started, abandoned, or have halfway completed ALL sorts of weird little projects, and I'll be talking about a lot of them.

Anyway, I won't promise that I'll post EVERY DAY, but I'll do my best to not forget about this thing, again.
