    Hello everybody,

    I am behind on reading all the posts. Seems like all are well from what I did read.

    I am busy. Had a nice shopping trip with my daughter yesterday and a trip to the movies today. Beautiful weather and successful shopping for fall clothes.

    Take care! Keep on keeping on.

    Laura

    Good to hear you are well, busy and enjoying the weather and shopping!

    Shopping for clothes is definitely not on my agenda for the near future, not until I've lost at least 6lbs more. No point to shop for clothes when I'm the 'wrong' size; I will have to make do with what little I can fit into at the moment. I will catch up on the shopping hopefully from January!!

    Hi Laura,

    Glad you've posted. Well I don't know about you but usually shopping with daughter means she needs your wallet LOL. But we still love them to bits.

    Most of all Congrats Laura on the 3 pounds !!!!

    Keep it up

    Hi Laura, glad you could grab a minute to blog with us. You sound like its going well. Weather here is still nice enough to go to the beach, as we did yesterday, but the water is certainly getting colder. This may very well have been the last swimming trip for the season, but I'm sure, not the last park outing for bbq and family walking.
    Hope everything with your art/graphics is going well. Fall would definitely be the time for creative juices for me if I was creatively talented at all, that is, lol.

    Art classes are going fine. I am balancing my time doing my art with my private time and family time. In past years I would live, eat and breathe school.

    I think I am doing well despite balancing my school and life. Mid terms are this week, and my grades might be affected somewhat...

    You know , Laura, you are so much more of a rounded out person now vs when you were younger. Just living life , having kids, being married and LIVING makes you stronger and more than just the sum of your grades. I'm sure your artwork is reflecting the person you are now with all that extra fulfillment under your belt. I won't say that grades don't matter, Laura, but if you are happy with your artwork and it makes you feel like you have done your best , then, you are on solid ground. You have already proven yourself. In life, love, family and work, you are successful.
    keep at it.

    I envy those are more creative. I can't draw or be crafty. I am more the mechanic type but sometimes I wish I was artsy as well. I appreciate those who are. My sister is one of those ppl. I don't even imagine or pretend things. I am more of a realist.
