Illustration Friday : Memories

So this week's topic is Memories and the first thing that popped into my head was Alzheimers. This disease runs in my family, and it is something I worry about ... A LOT. I was going to do and illo related to that, but...

The other night, I bought a scale. I haven't owned of those in years. Man, probably 10 years? So, anyways, Dev was jokin' with me askin' what I weighed... "are you... 210, 220?... oh, you can't buy that jacket, it won't fit you..." AHhhh!!!! (silent tears) But, he has the right to tease. I can't fit my jeans anymore, and I've put on.. a good 15+. I can't call it the "freshman15", but more like... middleaged15? (again, silent tears) It didn't sound like a lot to me, but if you think about it, it's kinda like i've been hauling around a bowling ball (or two). Whoa.

So, here's my mornin' sketch. Memories of when I was thinner.. and could fit my jeans. ha.

Oh, I feel your pain! I lost 22 lbs. before summer started; once school let out (I teach Kindergarten) I think I regained it all back! :( Now I gotta start over again! Cute illustration...I prefer the chunkier one anyway!
