Slowly getting my groove back. key word slowly. Because in the last two weeks I have been sick twice. And oh how i hate to be sick, anything that cuts my productivity=arch nemesis. First with this terrible stomach virus which left me 4 lbs lighter in 36 hrs- by the end of three days eating maybe 400 cal a day I was ready to eat a small village. Then when I was finally better I was slayed down by this terrible respiratory infection. Last night I totally could not breathe- you know that total panic air-hungry feeling. So if you call me today don't hang up it's really me behind that voice! Despite feeling most miserable for the last 8 days or so I have perservered in getting a few things done: 2 paintings (new one in the domestic series and commission piece for rebecca menzie), wrapping up a few small projects and the town ed foundation dinner dance, mystery reader, Wayne Thiebaud art project for preschool. I have also been on a three week straight sem. teaching marathon. So lots of life has been falling through the cracks. So barring further plagues maybe next week I'll hope to be back on my game. Right now I would be very happy to find myself on a tropical island with a book, a swimsuit, a clean bill of health, and some of that jordanian fresh lemon with mint.

As a mom busy growing up 3 little boys, I want to teach them to be smart! And by that I mean to think, to make wise choices, to care about the important things, to help make the world better, and use up their lives on the things that really matter.
