parade

this is my first use of tan toned paper. i like it better than the gray tone. and i used a white ink stain again for the toned paper.

at first i wasn’t sure about this one. but by the end i really liked it.

i finished the inking earlier, but i had to do bedtime before i could write this post. so i thought about what i would post as i lay in bed getting poppy & misha to sleep. i thought about telling y’all about my friday, where in addition to getting a fucktard for a president, i also got an anonymous religious tract in the mail addressed to me. my legal name. therefore probably from someone i know, but like i said…anonymously sent. not even a note saying, “hope you don’t burn in hell!” and a smiley face.

motherfucker.

and then while i was reeling from those two things, plus having just gotten home from the store and having to put away groceries while minions scream for treats, i missed two text messages from my ex who then both emailed me & messaged me on facebook in a panic. i fell into a conversation with him as i tried to be human & show some concern for his state of anxiety, but then he kept saying things like, “it won’t be like it was before.” and lamenting the past and promising change and i ended up having to put on the caps lock (i hate capitol letters if y’all haven’t noticed) but i felt i had to be clear. i don’t think he understands that we are broken up and i am never ever ever ever ever ever ever going down that path again.

so i used caps lock.

but he still didn’t get it.

anyhoo.

that’s what i was going to post about. but then i felt all mellow looking at my white ink on tan paper and decided to just talk about my picture instead.

it’s pretty, right?

i'm a disaster at every type of relationship i enter into...except with my kids. i think i'm doing something right there...but it is difficult to tell sometimes, especially since i have a pretty crappy support system since support involves relationships. i am a pretty dark person with a weird sense of humor. i spend my non-mom time cooking, baking, homesteading, fermenting, planting, sprouting, experimenting, reading, writing, drawing, plotting, obsessing, and hiding. as a mom i am about as unconventional as i can get. i unschool my kids & give them a lot of freedom to be who they are. this does not help my popularity. but my kids are super cool. i love my kids.
