my blog has gone neglected in the past couple of weeks, for which I apologize.? So many posts being written in my mind, so little time to press the keys!? So lucky you, yer going to get the Cliff Notes version : )
the topics I would have written include a glowing review of the ArtCraft show, with its stellar “who I wanna be when I grow up” artists, and amazing patrons… a few stress posts on “omg I have so much crap to do but it’s all good stuff”… and a couple that rave about friends who are a rung above me on the ladder of success (I’m so proud of them!!).? I would have thrown in a few “check out this cool thing!” posts, and a couple “my daughter is a nut, but I love her” entries (shh, don’t tell).? I also would have secretly written, then deleted, a post or two on my nutball classroom kids, who are currently bouncing so far off the walls in anticipation of winter break that I may have to break out duct tape and strap them all to their chairs just so I can get ten seconds to pass out materials before getting bombarded by a cacophonic chorus of “whadarewegonnadotoday” screamed in 30 miniature voices.*
Somewhere in there I would have written something hysterical**, somewhere something embarrassingly mushy, and in a little corner, something that attempts to be inspirational.? You would have chucked a little, rolled your eyes, and hopefully breathed a little more fully, deeply.? So just pretend all of that happened… cause the indecision of what to write next when there were a dozen entries trying to burst forth was a lot of pressure.? I’m going to take a deep breath, start from scratch, and call it a “hiatus” so I can can pretend I did it on purpose.
* (now you know why I would have deleted it)
** erm… to me, at least.? still counts : }
