Hey guys! I'm so sorry, I've been kinda quiet minus the MLP: FiM keychain drawings I've been posting. Things are starting to very slowly getting a little better. We are all moved and settled in with my husband's dad (my father-in-law) and we are all living quite comfortably! It's really not been too bad at all. The lawsuit has picked up though, and we're pretty much going balls to the wall. Walmart is being irresponsible, uncooperative which really raised a red flag to our attorney. They're not giving him all the information he requires for our case and refusing it to him as well, so things on that front are full of tension and rather stressful. My husband signed up for unemployment just to get us some income for the time being because as I'm sure you're all already aware, they took his workman's comp away from him back in February so we've had absolutely no income coming in at all. We should hear something by the 21st of this month if they approved him or not, which we're praying to God they did.
We did end up losing our house and some of our things through no fault of our own. I was also under the heavy fear that I would be losing my horse, which I have not, thank God! I've had some wonderful, caring friends and family step up and help me hold onto him, which I am ever so grateful for. He's my best friend, so if I lost him, I'd lose a huge piece of myself. In fact, tomorrow the weather is supposed to be beautiful and my horsey pal, Lisa, is coming to pick me up and we're hitting the trails for the first time this year!
I absolutely cannot wait, and I need to get Mr. Butthead (Lightning) out there and working off that winter hay belly he packed on! lol Gotta get those muscles back in shape! This winter was an absolutely atrocious nightmare! I'm so glad it's over and the warm temps are finally coming our way. It's about time, I say!
Let's see... in other news, I have been trying to work on as much drawing as I can. As of right now my scanner/printer is packed away somewhere in my father-in-law's garage with many of our other belongings, but I am also having some issues with my tablet wanting to work properly on my computer. It seems to freeze or lock everything up when I plug it in. Some of the software may be bad or corrupted, so I'd need to re-install it, but I have no clue where those installation disks are amongst all that stuff out in Dad's (I call my father-in-law 'Dad' and have for years!!!) garage. So, when I can I work on stuff I already have scanned, but that's about all I can do right now. I've been doodling and sketching a lot in my sketchpad though just for the fun of it! lol Today I sketch Inuyasha and Kagome portrait doodles together and a portrait doodle of Nightmare Moon. That was fun. It was kinda icky and gloomy these past few days and we did end up getting some spring storms, but I'm so ready for that shining sun tomorrow so I can saddle up and take off on horseback for a few hours. It'll help release some of this pent up tension and stress.
On the art front, I still have Rainbow Dash and Twilight to finish for my keychain drawings. Dad said he was going to take me to Hobby Lobby and find me all of the materials and proper lamination I need for my keychain making. He's so awesome like that.
Oh! Hehe, this adorable little blond haired, blue-eyed girl comes up to the house today asking if Logan can come over to her house and play. She was such a cutie and her name is Autumn. According to Logan, she's his best friend. Naturally we say yes as long as Logan behaves. He was so excited that he just bounded out the door and they ran down the yard together. They're both in the same school and ride the same bus. A little while later, he and Autumn come back up to the door and he says "Mommy! Can I please stay over at Autumn's for dinner!?" So of course, I say yes! I don't mind, and the two are holding hands and skipping off across the yard. It was way too cute. My little baby boy is growing up so fast! lol
So yeah. That's pretty much been my life in a nutshell here recently. Not too bad, quite honestly. Dad is a lot of fun. He loves to joke, tease and is very playful. Logan likes to go outside and help him and his daddy out in the yard like a big boy, and I handle all the indoor stuff like cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc... Now we just need to hope that David qualifies for the unemployment, so we at least have some money coming in for like, gas and things like that for the car, and other random household items. I'm just glad things aren't quite so stressful anymore and are getting a little easier.
I just hope that things slowly keep looking up for us. After all we've been through, we deserve it. Anyway, I'm gonna close this out so I can go snag a shower and take my butt to bed. Big day riding tomorrow and I wanna get a good night's sleep for it!
Take care everybody!
