Do not adjust your monitors!

It’s really me. Blogging. A really great friend suggested blogging today, and I realized that it has been almost a year since I’ve written a post. That’s a little shameful. Super busy doesn’t even begin to describe the past year. There is no way that I’d ever attempt a re-cap, so I’m just starting at today.

Today:
–Is Friday. Thank goodness.
–I have 3 weeks until I walk at graduation. It’s my second degree, but first time that I will be walking. I am *so* excited!
–I have 12 days until all of my work is due for final grades.
–I have 13 days until the first sitting of my next tattoo. (My artist thinks that it will be at least two sittings for a total of 5 hours. My last tattoo was only one hour…hoping I can get through this one!)
–I had to pull my oldest out of his extra-curricular activities so that he can focus on getting back on track academically. He seemed to take it ok. And things *seem* to be looking up a little already. This whole experience has made me realize how much I am really grateful that we have the boys in the school that they are in.
–I was supposed to finish up my business plan that is due in 11 days. This did not happen. But I did get all kinds of other photography work done.
–I bought ingredients for rice krispy treats, but I also bought Breyers coffee ice cream. The ice cream is winning….
–I am looking forward to the photoshoots that I have this weekend. The final shoot with Annie for my advertising final…this assignment has turned out to be one of the most fun that I’ve ever had. And a family photoshoot with a friend of a friend. Mom and her two little boys in the studio. It’s going to be a great one!
–Benji brought home a note telling us that his artwork is going to be in a public display at the school district’s main office building. We will need to go and check it out!
–I am not so very patiently waiting for my new business cards and writing pens that I’ve ordered for portfolio review (and also for the business in general).
–Wade and I will be trying to work out the details of the party that will be happening here after graduation.
–I worked out that the thing that my really great friend wants to happen at my graduation party might actually be do-able and could be some serious fun. (hahaha! Does that make you want to show up just to find out what it is????)

And because I know her mom has been waiting patiently (and she has too…), a quick look at one of the pictures from my first shoot with Annie. There were so many great shots from this location, I am going to have a hard time picking one for the assignment.

Hopefully you’ll be seeing me around here a little more often… Until next time!
