Those who follow my blog may have become accustomed the regular, disciplined posting to date in 2016, either in the form of my Friday Frag Bags, or those bragging about my completed projects over the weekend.
Welp, the radio silence over the past two weeks would probably have been a bit disconcerting, eh?
Take note: I am very much alive.
Fact of the matter is, since I got the new computer I’ve hardly picked up a paint brush. I’ve been catching up in some of the video gaming that I’ve missed out on over the past 4-6 years or so. I guess I am permitted to become distracted every now and again.
My weekends have also been occupied at various familial/churchy type things and when you do the math there simply isn’t much time left over to do much hobby. I wouldn’t call it a funk necessarily, but it kind of is. I’ve stalled just a tick.
Suffice to say I’m very much aware, and I’m working on trying to rejig my schedules and priorities to get more painting down so I can post more.
I also have something else to throw out to the internet that is very “Too Much Information” for those coming here simply to see pictures of my latest Skitarii paint jobs, blunders and learnings in the Imperial Guard and stuff like that. So, for those people, I will implore you to read no further. I will put up a wall of pictures of Colin the Dachshund to allow you an avenue for escape!
Alrighty. That should be enough for most squeamish folks to leave… Like Colin above, I’m sorry for laying out the trash in my life for all to review. Sometimes it’s good just to get it out there. Breaking down walls and what not. Speaking my truths.
Seems there’s a quirk in one of my testicles is basically dead, and while it’s still in me it’s a cancer risk. So I’m having one of my balls removed.
It feels very weird to have about 4-6 months of specialist consultations, medical testing, and anxiety summarized in 2 sentences, but there you have it.
My problem has been a trial of sorts for Mrs. Oak and I, as we did have aspirations of bringing a screeching brood of proto-humans into the world at some juncture. We’re not without options, however both of us have our reservations with respect to being what amounts to a walking lab experiment. So there’s that to weigh as well.
It’s been really tough to talk about. For me, I just feel like I need to get it all out there. And I’ve done that now. So let the healing begin!
