I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be,
but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

Made the move, now back to life

This weekend has been a whirlwind. I am officially moved to Grand Bay, thanks to my cousins. Between the four of them, they had me out of Mobile and into the new place within hours. I will now spend the month of December unpacking and sorting through all of my stuff. Tyler is meeting me at the house today to help me set up my art room and stretch some canvases. I haven't painted in over a month due to Ryan's death as well as three trips to the hospital with my back. Leaking spinal fluid is no walk in the park, and if I had to take a drug test right now, I would fail it miserably thanks to the cornicopia of epidurals, dilaudid, zofran, and darvocet that I've been given over the past few weeks. It has been a difficult time, but I'm recovering and I've got to get back to life and painting. I've scheduled two Bob Ross workshops in December to try to make up for November's cancellations. I'm also still looking for a part time weekday job and working on plans for kids art classes in 2009.

No internet at home until further notice. I'm sitting at Panera Bread right now, wrapping things up in Mobile. I already miss being in the city, but I realize that my current arrangement is necessary. Maybe even ideal. I will be closer to my classroom, and an hour away from Hobby Lobby in Biloxi where I hope to land a teaching position. I will be talking to them this week.

Hope all is well with everyone, and I'll talk to ya soon.
