So it's been nearly 2 years since I last wrote a journal here, and I haven't logged in much in between.
I haven't lost interest in art, and I sometimes cruise on over to Etsy to check out the lovelies, but I'm just not into online communities the way the I used to be. I'm sure none of my followers are holding out hoping to see more posts from me XD but in the foreseeable future, I just don't think it will be happening. Life is so dang busy in my universe that I just don't have the energy, patience, or time left for online communities--and, honestly, my real life is very full.
I do sometimes blog -> frodominatrix.blogspot.com/
I'm interested in reviews, beauty, crafts, art, books, current events, fish keeping, and parenting, so you'll find posts about those things scattered through.
My job is very hectic, and stressful, and I can't wait for busy season to end. I've got my eye on what I'd like to do as a career, but there are several things that need to happen first. It's taken me a long time to even consider something a career that'd I like to work up to, so this is a pretty large step up. I understand and am working on what I need to do to make it happen, but I do feel that it is still a few years out for me, which I accept.
The little girl we've been fostering will actually become my sister sometime (hopefully) this year, which is a completely new and weird concept that I'm still processing emotionally, because I've looked at her as a daughter for some time now. It's not going to be easy and I'm just hoping that we will transition into those different roles soon and smoothly.
My brother in law moved into our home, so my household grew by one adult and one husky. We now have 3 adults, 1 part time child, 4 dogs, 3 cats, and 3 fishtanks. It's quite overwhelming some days, lately it's been a struggle. I swear my wife is the only thing that's kept me going, she's been my anchor through all this crazy that life has thrown at us lately.
I've been painting a bit (nothing fancy, I have 0 talent in that area.) I've also been crocheting. I keep working on making scarves for the homeless or needy, but working on a project like that alone is daunting! If you'd like to participate please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org Winters are very harsh here!
I *do* get on Instagram every once in a while, so please follow and I'll follow back. I don't submit much but I do browse.
Anyway, I've run out of time and need to finish up! I don't get on dA much so feel free to reach out via Instagram!
