Ink Drawing ! Warning: Boring Rambling
FINALLY finished this ink drawing, it is approx. 8x10. The photo isn't great, the paper is solid white, no shading, just black and white. Mr. U has started his new job, I've been the Lady in Waiting for His Majesty a lot. Has prevented me from doing much art. Think I've been in a bit of a rut but believe I am headed around the bend! Going through withdrawals....sugar is a strong substance you know!!!! It wasn't a mystery to me that my only options to help myself, to be the mother, wife and hopefully one day, grandmother is to take change my eating. Oh, I've lost before, years ago, took off 40 lbs with my diet and walking 3 miles daily. It is difficult with my love of food, "medicating" myself with it, unable to exercise like I used to....blah, blah, blah. Going to take off a little, then try the pool again, though it is even a bit hurtful. My foot has been giving me a great deal of pain, it is nerve pain that is from my back, it is non-stop but has worsened in recent months, some days/hours worse than others. I don't want to whine, but it combined with the knee, it's on the same leg and back itself keeps me depressed because it limits me and I get discouraged at the filthiness around me. Feel older than my years. Don't get me wrong, I am blessed and know it, soooo many others are worse off and I could be too. Constant pain is relentless and depressing and the fibro - it's like a poison cherry on top. Mr. U gets tired of it I know, as so do I. OKAY...enough of THAT but it gives you a peak into where I'm coming from, thanks y'all, for listening....just a bit of venting.
