Another Project...

This project I actually like!  This was homework over the weekend & I got my sketch book back tonight.  I was feeling really empowered...until Tuesday night. My teacher told us to pick a seashell from a box & we had to draw it...on 18x24 drawing paper.  I picked what I thought was a super cool shell.  It is not.  It freaking sucks.  I may try to re-draw it this weekend.  We will see.  I'm not sure the teacher will be so happy to have me re-draw it, but it sucks bad!  So bad, I won't let Don & Kendall see it.  I feel like I should stop typing & go re-draw it right now...but really, that will not end well.  It will have to wait for tomorrow.


It's just been one of those weeks where I have been miserable.  I wake up exhausted & in a bad mood that I can't seem to shake.  Kendall & I are fighting like pros.  Low blows equal extra points.  We're currently tied for the highest score of the year.  Although I pulled ahead temporarily when I told her that her grades were indicative of needing remedial courses...she added points when she told me that our entire relationship since she was born has been a constant fight.  Work, which I love most of the time, has been particularly challenging this week.  Bugs in computer programs gravitate towards me & I found a big one today.   Which, nice as it is to locate an error in the system, meant I had to re-do all the work I did the day before.  A full days worth.

I think the planets are out of alignment...or something.  Moody, moody, moody.  That is me. 

Lest I sound like Debbie Downer, yoga has been awesome!  No one has passed out.  Well, that's not quite true.  Today we did a guided meditation to a cd (Audra, it was Keelyn!) & the teacher specifically told us not to fall asleep.  There was snoring all over the place.  And I must admit to catching myself drifting off a couple of times.  I highly recommend lunchtime yoga!


  1. Oh so very sorry to read about the struggles. The stipple is AWESOME! Your holiday is just around the corner - hang tough! Audra

  2. Like Audra says, hang tough. You are SUCH a strong woman, as is Kendall. Maybe journal your relationship with her? That way, you might be able to spot a trend...I don't believe that it is either just you or her, but rather where you both are currently in your lives. She is grown up, headed out on her own shortly. You've been going through some big transitions personally and as a family lately.

    Love all your class progress.

    And love you!
