My daughter was sick at the end of September, and try as I might otherwise, I caught her flu and it floored me for a good week and a half. Flus are always such a big deal with me. I'm angry that I put off getting my shot until November as I do every year. Darn early flu season!
Anyway, other than feeling a little stuffy in the head and chest, I'm in much better spirits now, and as you might have noticed, I've been able to work on some commission art. That was a nice distraction! I have a couple more pieces from the October special and then a larger commission project I'm working on in the background.
Otherwise, life continues as normal. My daughter is growing every day and the seasons keep on changing... mostly. We've had a really hot and dry Indian Summer this year in Missouri, so the Fall colors aren't quite as impressive. The weather has been great for getting out and walking around (you know, when I'm not mired in mucous XD) All this means the Holidays are fast approaching, so I'm very glad to get some work done while I can.
In other news, I'm scheduled for my 20 week ultrasound this week. We may finally be able to determine the gender of baby #2. This, of course, is exciting, but mostly, I want to get a jump on shopping so I can be ready for the baby when it comes in late February XD (I know I won't get out in the Winter.) My doctor is still monitoring me for gestational diabetes, but my blood sugar levels seem to be pretty consistent. That's a big relief, but who knows? Things change when massive amounts of hormones come in to play.
Family life and keeping up my health keep me pretty busy, so I miss the social aspect of sites like these. But I wanted to say that I'm glad and honored to have all the watchers, faves, and comments. Thank you, all of you, who take the time to stop and give me some encouraging words. I'm always pleased to share my creations with you!
has announced their next round match-ups and requirements. I'm really excited! My Jusqua will be facing off against *callousvixen
's Minwu and *kirej7
's Relm, in Alexandria! OH! I have so many ideas already! And three months in which to do it. I have a feeling this will be both awesome and daunting, but I can't wait to put things to paper. I want a shot at the finals! (because who would expect Jusqua to make it that far?)
Okay! Back to life.
