today's doodles



I totally hate that love potion thing, mainly because I just didn't have the right colors and instead of leaving it black or waiting until I had the right colors I tried to use what I had and totally wrecked it.

Today this is basically all I did, I had TV on in the background and barely looked up from my sketchbook. And then this evening when Ryan and I took Tank for a walk I had a full-on panic attack, so I don't know if I was subconsciously trying to keep my brain distracted all day because I could feel it coming on or what.

But yeah so I just took an ativan, so it'll be bedtime in like four minutes. Fun fact, my computer is trying to get me to change the word "ativan" to "Vatican". That reminds me of another thing I drew yesterday. The hand is totally messed up but I think it's funny.



Early Saturday morning at the tattoo shop. What a beautiful place to be.

A 32 hour trip to Calgary

Ryan and I are famous (in our own heads at least) for super quick getaways, and this was no exception. My dad's birthday was on Saturday, and thanks to my awesome step-mom who flew us in, good timing with the kids being at their mom's house, and a very nice friend who let us drop Tank off at her place, we were able to go celebrate with him.

My brother and sister drove up to Calgary as well, and my sister's fiancee flew in from working up north, and we all got to hang out together for the first time in six years.



I didn't bring my camera (so these photos were all stolen off facebook) because Ryan and I only shared one backpack, we like to travel light. I regretted it though, especially when Saturday morning we took a walk through a beautiful park and saw an owl in the first five minutes. Ryan got this photo with his iPhone, so all was not lost.



We all went out Saturday night to a comedy club, which for some reason I had never done before. It was so fun! My mouth hurt from laughing so much.

When the show was over it was apparent that some people had a few more drinks than others...because they ran onstage and started talking into the microphone, hahahaha. Luckily we weren't taken out back by bouncers or something.



And the next morning we were out the door by 6:45am, back to the airport. I never feel like I get to spend enough time with my family, the visits are always a few days here, a few days there, and only once or twice a year. It's not enough.
