SO. It's been about a year and a half since our last journal. FanTAStic.
BASICALLY, in an nutshell, back in May of 2013, we finally got our own apartment, found out I was pregnant, and spent the whole year working full time. Both of us. I was in customer service for an Alarm Dealership Company, and he was (and still is) working Tech Support for Verizon FIOS. Both call centers. Fun stuff. Of course, during this time, we were both super stressed because Daniel worked from 8am-12pm, then had a four hour break, then worked from 4pm to 8pm, Friday through Tuesday every week with Wednesday and Thursday off. Meanwhile, from April to mid-June, I was working from 10am to 8pm Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, with Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday off, so we had barely any time together for quite awhile. Then from June til December, we switched our days off so Daniel had Tuesday and Wednesday, and I started working from 9am to 5pm, Monday, then Wednesday through Saturday (Tuesdays and Sundays were my only days off then), so, again, barely any time together. Then we got into a car accident in December (no one was hurt, but we had a lapse in our insurance and may or may not be covered. Oh the street.). And THEN we had our beautiful baby girl, Helena Linda, on January 5th of this year (totally naturally, by the way; no epidural, no painkillers, nothing. It was FREAKING. INTENSE. But I tore a bit, so it's taken a while to heal.), and so we've been focusing mainly on her these past two months. But anyway.
SO THAT IS MY EXCUSE FOR NOT DRAWING ANYTHING AT ALL RECENTLY. Plus I had a seven year old computer that was beginning to deteriorate more quickly than it had been and was running too slow for GIMP. Daniel got me a new computer and I'm not working (at least, not working away from home for money. Being a mom and wife is hard enough. o__o) anymore, so hopefully I will begin to draw a lot more on this account and further increase my skillz with a Z. As I think we've mentioned before, this is mine and Daniel's joint account; SOMEDAY I will make him draw and he'll be putting up his art here, as well. So yeah! Hope everyone is doing well!
