Rough behind me.

So that was tough, barely thought I'd get through it. I'll just mention the high points (most of them wedding related)...

-sending out the wedding invitations
- starting to put some lanterns together for the wedding
- K and S finally got to take their new babe home from the hospital (poor little guy had a rough start)
- beautiful weather on some days
- seeing the school play go off without a problem and the scenery didn't fall down or come apart
- made a trip to Ikea and found EVERYTHING I needed quickly
- a wonderful husband who made me chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast this morning
- nice walks with the Lhotse

So really-- it is enough to forget about the other stuff.

But it has been rough with work. The one school that I'm dealing with just continues to ruin my week. It's really such a negative place. I'm really hoping that I can switch out of that for the next school year... but there's no telling what will happen. I'm trying to think of things that might be pulling me in a different direction. Maybe an MFA program, I don't know. It's hard to say.

We'll see.

I'm off to attempt to make pillows for the wedding. I bought a whole bunch of bold print fabric. We'll see how they go. I'll post pictures of how this goes... I've never really sewed before-- we'll I did make bean bags ones-- but that's another story.

Just in time for his birthday!

Welcome to the world Kaleb! That is the new born baby who was born to two amazing people - Katie (my best friend) and Shannon (her wonderful husband) - today at around 2 AM! I can't wait to meet him in person and see his cute face. I'm sure they're trying to get as much rest as possible, but hopefully I'll be able to pay them a visit super soon!

WOW! I can't believe it! Good thing I finished their mural for them 2 weeks ago, he was about 3 weeks early!
