What now?

We've moved Emily to LA, Christine is putting her name on a mortgage, Rose will be going to Neumann every single day, and Grace will be starting her senior year. Too much, too fast. We are really in the thick of things right now. Matthew is studying for tests, and I'm finishing my summer classes. Meanwhile, we are getting the house reappraised, so let's throw some elbow grease into the mix!

I wanted to put a piece in the staff/faculty show to promote my calligraphy class I'll be teaching this fall. And I'll be doing a weekend workshop for party-planning. Extra $ is always welcome. I like the idea of teaching. I think the people I grew up with assumed I would teach (or just find some way to continue being bossy!).

I really don't have anything profound or clever to say today. I just wanted to say hi to everyone. I've lost my creative zip, but it will come back soon. I'm looking forward to having a spotless house for a little while. I'm looking forward to having these school assignments done. I'm looking forward to starting fresh with Matthew so we can map out our future. So much to do. I wouldn't trade any of it.

I was never into calligraphy until last spring, when this INCREDIBLE calligrapher handmade our wedding invitations. I was truly blown away.

Good luck with your class. I think it would be so neat to learn how to do calligraphy well.
