I'm not sure if it was the caffeine that I drank tonight ( the first in a couple of days...I've cut WAAAYY back on my caffeine consumption in an effort to be thrifty). Or it could be that it's because the roommate is nto here and I don't have to hear anyone being shouty or drunk, or be paranoid about leaving my bedroom and having someone invade my personal space, or be dragged into Drunk Talk. 

Either way.. I just spent 5 hours of my night sketching, when I should have been filling out show apps, and finishing up a couple of orders. 

But this face would not leave my brain, and I couldn't stop until it was done.

I took a nap this afternoon, because I had stayed up all night sketching, then had to get up early to make sure that I was ready for a customer, who was stopping by the house to pick up her custom pieces. Huge order from DragonCon that took ages to finish ( full scalemail skirt, full scalemail mantle, and a scalemail headband). She was my first $1K order of my life..and absolutely a sweetheart. Patient to the max, when I told her that I had gone through two moves, plus having to stock my shows, plus actually DOING the shows.. so she knew the piece was going to take a few months. Anyways.. she loved them. But afterwards, I was exhausted. So..nap time. 

Woke up from the nap to find that I had sold approximately $250 worth of stuff on Etsy.  Felt like I should apparently take more naps if that's what happens.

Then I heard the total number of deaths from the CT shooting. I can't even be heartbroken, it's so terrible. All I can do is be numb, and pray for the families. 

Of course it made me think of Landis..and his situation. He was an unmedicated for his depression, and bi-polar disorder. He SHOULD have been on medication. He used to be.

There are folks arguing on Facebook ..all manner of ways. Gun control, medication, non-medication. 

Sometimes, there are no answers. Sometimes, people just snap. 

I just keep hoping that one day, these families will know peace. Hug your loved ones people. Hug them lots.
