Geez... I was just watching the local news. There have been 6 muggings (at gunpoint) in the Plaza and Westport here in KC within the last three days. That's terrible! Those are like the only two places in Kansas City I really like going to (Matt and I just went to the Cheesecake Factory on the Plaza on Tuesday). Bastards.

I'm going to be painting later tonight and I'll have the webcam on =)

Lately I've been working on commissions - I don't generally point the cam on them though, since there are often copyright or privacy issues involved with them. I've taken on a couple new commissions even though I'm up to my neck, lol. I just want to have a good "nest egg" saved up for the move. We have to send the Celebration apartment people the deposit ($895) plus the pet deposit ($500) next week. We need to buy a car ($X,000?) and I need (well, want) new furniture after we've moved. We need: Living Room Set (couch, maybe a loveseat/comfy chairs, end tables, coffee table?), Bedroom Set (bed, mattress, dressers, nightstands, armoire?), possible Art Stuff (like a drafting table and a chair so I don't paint on the floor and f*ck up my back with poor posture?), Entertainment Set (an entertainment center, new TV/VCR {we're putting our current ones in our future bedroom}) etc. That's all going to be several thousand dollars I'm sure. And of course I still want money in my savings account for our eventual house, and we need to buy theme park passports and other things of that nature. Eeeeeekkkk.... I'd better win that Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes on February 14th. I actually entered it this time (and I have the junk mail to prove it!) so I might actually win this year! I'll be sure to get up and dressed early that day, just in case the Prize Patrol surprises me....
