Oh goodness, this last week starting from the 9th to today has been extremely busy! I've barely been home at all (which isn't really a bad thing) and have slept in my own bed maybe 3 times.

So on Friday (the 9th), I was picked up by my boyfriend to start his birthday celebration. It was a lot of fun, especially Saturday night =]. But first things first. Friday night, he wanted beef udon to eat, and while he was eating his, I cooked my own (since I'm actually allergic to beef. Go figure). When I sat down and took a few bites, I found a dead moth in my bowl =_=. I quickly dumped the whole pot out into the yard while Chris tried to get the moth out of the bowl after dumping it. It just wanted to stay in there! Yuck.... Then after we both finished eating, I took my pills and got a nasty niacin reaction (which is utterly horrible). With niacin, it gives you what they call a 'flushed' body, which apparently means that your whole body goes red, itches like hell, and makes you feel like you're having a hot flash. If I'm at my boyfriend's house and have a niacin reaction, I always go take a cold bath since that works wonders. However, as I was getting into the tub, my face started swelling and I had to take Benadryll. Whee =P.

Then on Saturday was Chris's birthday =]. We got to relax, sit around in bed for a bit, and played Pokemon together. Then we headed back to my area to meet up with my sister and Johnathan to watch Wreck-It Ralph, which was absolutely AMAZING. 5 stars totally. Then we went out to eat at a small chain restaurant called Rafferty's which has amazing food =3. After that, we went to the arcade that was across the street so Chris could play some DDR and oher normal arcade games =]. So much fun, and the best birthday celebration he's ever had (according to him).

Sunday I spent packing for a sudden trip to Florida with my parents! We went down to go pick up my Meemaw, who's staying with us until sometime near end of November to middle of December. We also went to go visit my Papaw who's having surgery soon to have part of his colon removed =[. 8 to 12 inches yuck x_x. He's very nervous, but I'm praying that he makes it through alright <3. Any thoughts, prayers, well wishes, etc would be very much appreciated.

On Wednesday, we made our way back up to Georgia, although we didn't get back until about 1:30 am on Thursday. I was so exhausted and literally fell asleep almost instantly. Then when I woke up, I had some kind of chest cold from being around cigarette smoke. Blegh, still kind of recovering from that.

On Friday, Chris picked me up again and we finished celebrating his birthday =P. We didn't do too much that night. On Saturday, I cooked him beef udon again, but this time I made some steak and cut it up to put in there. Apparently it was very yummy =3. Then we went to go see Wreck-It Ralph again XD. So worth seeing it again. Seriously, go watch it. It's amazing and will blow your mind.

When I got back home yesterday, my sister said that there was a free even that her work was invited to go to that involved free food, drink, and movie premiere =]. It was a lot of fun, although you had to sit through a boring training video XD. There was a raffle ticket that went on, where if your number got drawn, you go down to the front and try to answer a question in order to win a prize. Well the first two-three people who got drawn and asked didn't give any right answers. The next person they called was my sister! She got the answer right and won a Kindle Fire! She was/is so excite because she's been to 5-6 of these events and never got drawn. She was shaking because she couldn't believe that she won something =3. I'm so happy for her ^^.

Also on good news front for my sister; she got a new job!! She starts not this Friday but next Friday =3. She's so excited, especially since it pays twice what she makes now =3. It's about time she got a job she deserves xD. So happy for her =3.

So yeah, that's what I've been doing. A lot of things happening very, very quickly and a lot to happen in a 8-9 day period =P.

OH! I almost forgot, I'm also doing a challenge that a friend gave. I'm going to work on expanding my portfolio in order to get an actual art portfolio going. Every two weeks I'm going to try a new style of art and try to add it to my hopeful portfolio =]. So far, I did Comic Book Style (like X-Men). I'm kind of pleased with the girl, but the guy I'm going to have to eventually tweak and possibly re-do entirely. Next challenge is Disney-style =3. Fun fun fun!

Ugh the friends page on my lj isn't working right so I only just saw this post now! Anywaaaay. It sounds like you have a great time, illness and bad reactions aside. I hope your papaw is doing well. Many prayers for a speedy recovery.

I totally want to try some of your beef udon! (I've slowly been trying to incorporate beef back into my diet) Never had udon homemade before. :3 Yuum.

I love the idea about building your portfolio and trying out various art styles. Schools often try to get their students to do that so eventually they can create their own style. Have fun with it and be sure to show me some of your work! :3 Much love to you! *hugs*

I am so sorry that I'm jsut now responding to this x_x. My life has yet to calm down!
My Papaw seem to be doing good last I heard =]. A little sore, but that's to be expected from surgery.
I will totally make some for you whenever I eventually see you! I love udon so much, god.. The noodles are so smooth and thick and agghhh *drools*.
I really need to get back to work on it. I did a comic book style and really, really didn't like how the guy turned out, so for my New Year's Resolution is to try to draw every week and work harder on my portfolio. I want to redo the comic book, both male and female, because I have a style that I like for it now =].
Thanks for always being there and being so kind, Emmy <3.

That's fantastic that your Papaw is doing well! And never worry about response time. Like I'm ever any better? XD I'm so excited for this Udon you'll be making me eventually! Seriously, the plane ticket may just be worth the fare for a taste. I know Brandon and I are planning to eventually take a couples vacation together perhaps we'll hit up Georgia? There's a cool aquarium there or something right?
Drawing weekly is a fantastic resolution! I should probably do that too! I can't tell you how many drawings that I've hated and then redone with positive results. It's always a good idea to tackle a past project and bump it up to your standards. As always please, share! :)
*hug* We're friends and I've always got your back! <3

Haha I tend to try to answer in one week or less, so it feels like way too long for me xP.
I will get onto perfecting my Udon skills for you ;). OH MY GOSH yes, there's this huge aquarium, Coca-Cola World, Olympic Park, me =P. There's some pretty cool stuff over here =].
So far I've done it two weeks, but this week will have to be put on hold due to sickness x_x. I'll make sure to share when I can =3.
<3 I'm always glad that we're friends <3. I gotcha back too!
