Happy Thanskgiving to my US readers!

One of these days, I won't be so scatterbrained. I won't be forgetful, and I will remember to do things on time or ahead of time like I always intend to do! I won't be sick, either, and I won't be fat.

Until then? I'm the fat, disabled, happy person who still loves updating this blog and loves all her readers!

Even though the past year has been hard, it's also been wonderful. I am so thankful for so many things- my family, my amazing friends, my wonderful husband who is my best friend on this planet. I'm thankful for our home, and for the ability to make art. I'm so thankful that even though I'm disabled, none of the myriad things I have wrong with me will kill me.

Most of all, I'm so thankful for the sense of humor that allows me to laugh at the things that happen. Life is too short, too fragile. It's not worth freaking out over everything, and being able to find the joy in little things makes all the big hard things easier to tolerate.

I'm also thankful for you- yes, you reading this right now. On your phone or on your computer, at home or work or school or wherever you happen to be, you make it worth writing this blog. Thank you for the time you spend reading my silly stories and looking at whatever I happen to post. I hope your thanksgiving day was filled with love and laughter, and if you aren't in the US then I hope your Thursday was wonderful!

While at my dad's house for our celebration, I pulled out my notebook and doodled a little chibi punk rock girl. Consider it today's art. :D

One of these days I'm going to have to cut down on the number of art supplies I carry in my purse, or just break down and get myself a backpack or something. Oooh, or I could get a burro! He could be my pack burro, and I could stock him with pens and sketchbooks and water and snacks! I could even name him something cute, like Armand, or Doctor!

... I think I've been without sleep too long, and have ceased to make sense. I've definitely been watching too much Dr. Who... if there is such a thing.

Til next time. <3
Turkey cake was provided by family for a delicious meal. He didn't survive, poor guy.
