Hello everyone, Joseph here...
I've come to a decision for this month... my Drawtober 2016 Marathon/31 Days of Halloween Drawings... has been... CANCELLED! Now I bet you're asking "WHY"??? Here are some of my Reasons, this month is just WAY TOO BUSY for me...
#1: I have to be more open for my Mom, she had to GO BACK to the Hospital on her Knee Replacement... it got INFECTED. She also has another Infection as well, now she's on 6 Weeks of IVs to fight the Infections. Just as she was returned to work, she has to be off more for all of that, and to restore her Knee Muscles since they were cut TWICE. And then the two or three Medical Travel Trips to Indianapolis to see her Doctors. Family comes first.
#2: October is VERY BUSY for the Hotel Business for us here in Indiana, the "Covered Bridge Festival" is now Open. And you can't blame the problem here in Terre Haute being two Hotels SHORT, making Accommodations VERY TIGHT this year.
#3: I have TOO MUCH to do around the House here too, and no one else can help. I also need to get fully organized and cleaned in my studio, and I have to finish on some Fall Cleaning in time for Winter.
#4: Aside me having a BUSY WEEK this week, not only do I have to leave town and go to Indianapolis in between the times... I also have my First Case in "Jury Duty". My name was picked into being a Member of the Jury in a Court of Law on certain assigned Cases.
Personally I hated to Cancel my Marathon, but I honestly have No Choice. I was already Several Days BEHIND in the Marathon due to my shifts and being busy at home. Cancelling this does kind of help with some of stuff that's piling up on my shoulders. I hope not to do the same thing next year. Yeah, as they say, there's always next year.
Until then, this is all the time I have for this week.
