Deep in the Bloom - Colored by Masked-Meow
Deep in the Bloom - Colored
Alright, I know I could have done a better job at coloring it, but I have a bunch of other paintings I am working on, so I kinda rushed it. I got stuck trying to add in depth while still going with a grisaille method. (worked better for me in highschool. O_o) But overall, I still like how the girl came out, so that is what matters most.

An interesting piece I drew while I was stuck in a STL cafe, waiting for my boyfriend to get off work. Did most of it on the train home and finished it over thanksgiving.

So, things are still hectic at home, but I am still able to do some drawing on the side, mostly while waiting in doctors offices. Been taking my mom to the doc a lot since she was recently diagnosed with skin cancer. Doctor said that it should be removed on the 11th of December and shouldn't cause much of a problem.

I have been seen a couple of times about my back, and for the time being, we are trying to find some ways to make me more comfortable for me without having to rely on drugs. Pretty much getting better support in a chair and in bed, plus restrictive bracing. Its gotten to the point I can't rotate very well, and can hardly lift anything. Taking out the garbage, doing the dishes, and even shopping have become huge and painful chores. Sitting at my tilted drawing desk brings better relief than working on my computer. I have to get up a lot to stretch my back, so sitting at an office job sounds horrible. I am still trying to find a job that can work with my back so I don't have to rely on disability. If this does get worse, I will need to consider surgery. Worse meaning if something pinches my nerves and gets caught.

In any case, this downtime has given me some time to draw since lack of funds keep me from doing much else. I feel horrible not being able to do anything, but the family still relies on me to do everything, so I end up going to bed in pain every night. Particularly lately, my mom has been falling a lot and I have to pick her up. After that, I am out of commission all day, restricted to the bed with nothing but a heating pad, some icy-hot, and left crying and sobbing all day. Then, being the person that I am, I would rather my niece have fun. Her having fun is more important than my back, so if she wants to play, I will play until I collapse. The lovely doll is such a good girl when I am in pain, though. When I do collapse, she takes good care of me. She grabs my heating pad, hands me the cat, and turns the TV onto a show I like, all without being asked.

Anyway, tomorrow I should be cooking stuff for thanksgiving and will need to tell my Aunt about my back problems when I have to go lie down after carrying the heavy food in. Hopefully my brother or my dad can get the turkey. 22 pounder, I think. I myself will be bringing Ambrosia and some Roasted Vegetables.

So, my 24th birthday is very close at had. It is currently 10:15 pm, so that would make it barely two days. Tomorrow I am having a small gathering at my favorite bar. I'm not too excited, though. As always, I am still in pain. It has now bad enough that I have been hunched to one side. It'd be nice if I had a crutch to straighten me up a bit. I am out of my pain medication, too, so that is just making it harder. I am sure if I did have my job still, I would have quit. I can't stand, sit, or lie down.

Back on the subject of birthday, I plan on traveling on the 21st to St. Louis again. Luckily, I am taking the train this time, so it is close to my boyfriend's apartment. Don't have to deal with the downtown crowd. Need to be careful, though. Obvious reasons.

I am not expecting anything on my birthday. My family has been fighting a lot lately. I was working super hard yesterday cleaning the house to the point that I nearly fainted. I was all shaky, couldn't walk well, or talk. My dad came out just to yell about laundry. I just unloaded 7 tubs of clothing that had been sitting for years. I shouldn't be even lifting those, but it would never get done. I overworked myself, and all he could say was complain that I was using the laundry. Your daughter nearly looses consciousness, but the world is going to end because my laundry is done and you need to use it SO BADLY?!

On the good side, my niece just got her first pair of glasses. She loves them.

Anyway, I have a lot to do again tonight. Gotta dry more clothes, shower, pack my back and bake my cake for tomorrow.
