If I only had a canvas or two


Hey there everyone!! Sorry, it's been a bit since I've posted but I've been a busy guy. This is the monthly race for rent where I try my hardest to make rent in a week. So far, so good. Anyway, I have some bad news. I slipped up yesterday and had a few beers. But I have forgiven myself and its back to soberness. It had been two weeks. Not great, but for someone who drinks everyday, it's a start. I kinda needed it yesterday, because it made me feel like hell and it reminded me why I'm doing it in the first place. I just hate feeling half-ass like I do when I drink. So, I apologize to everyone for the slip-up. However, I did get to do some painting yesterday(see picture). That was fun. It's a coffee table for my brother-in-law. I wish I had endless canvases. I would paint all the time. Everyone asks me why I don't sell my artwork. I think it's a confidence thing. Whatever I draw is just easy for me and nothing I have done has really been incredible to me. I take it as a compliment when someone wants my artwork, so I just give it to them. What would I even charge anyway? I wish I could make money off my art, but I just don't know how to do it. On to the next subject-Lori is out of prison and doing well. She was so happy when she saw her apartment. She sounds like a new person so far, but we have to continue to support her. I am getting tattooed again tonight and I am very excited about it. My friend Johnna is an aspiring tattoo artist and she has been tattooing me for free so she gets her practice in. She's pretty good and I trust her because she has been doing it for a couple years now and she has already tattooed me three times. I have to get Maddens name on me because it's just not fair that I have my other two children but not him yet. So I will take care of that tonight. I think Jenna and Hannah need a tattoo. (Just kidding. Like that would ever happen.) I have 17 I think, about to be 18. How fun. Oh yeah, and baseball starts today for real. I am so excited. I can't wait to get the wife and kiddos out to the ballpark for a nice afternoon together. So, yeah- thats about whats been going on in my world lately. I'll post new pics of my tattoos and I have other pics of rollerskating and easter coming too. Talk to you all soon!!!!

It's good to see you again! The slip-up is not a big deal, just pick yourself back up and keep going.

Did you get my voicemail over the weekend?

Back on the wagon is the important thing. We're behind you all the way. Don't beat yourself up.

You're so cute, Micah. What would I possibly do with a tattoo? I'd look ridiculous!

Micah said...

No voicemail momma- then again, I don't even know where the phone is. I haven't used it in awhile.

YogaNana said...

Hmm. Call me this weekend? Ot shall I just email you?

Yeah, I'm just not into the whole tatoo thing. I honestly could not think of one thing I'd want drawn on my body permanently. Mike can't seem to get enough of them though.
