Today I drew a man who should be familiar to my husband, yet when I showed him the picture he did not know who it was. Which goes to show that the drawing is not a very good likeness. I do believe I captured some of it right here and there but the overall affect is off. It's my brother-in-law. This is why I do not like to draw family, everyone knows their faces so well that it really has to be perfect for it to work. When it's a total stranger, nobody knows if you did it well or not!
A week ago I had lunch at the Japanese counter in the food court at a mall. I chose the Bento Box #3 which had three gyozas, two tempura shrimp on a bed of fried rice and a small green salad. The salad was fine, the gyozas were good, the shrimp was ok....but by the time I started on the rice I was not feeling well at all. I threw the rest of the lunch away and went back to work. But I kept feeling worse and worse and nauseous. I left work early and came home, by then my upper abdomen was hurting very badly. A few hours later I decided to go to the Urgent Care facility near my home. After much prodding I was given some pain killers and instructed to do blood tests the following day, which all came back normal. I hurt all the next week. After more tests and an ultra sound, it has been decided that I need to have my gall bladder removed. I was so relieved to find out that something really was wrong. So this week I'm having surgery - don't yet know which day for sure. I've got an appt on Tuesday to figure it all out.
