Hi! So much has been happening with me on a personal/family level....my oldest daughter graduated from High School, turned 18, finally got her drivers license
(why is it that some kids are chomping at the bit to drive while others have no desire?)
and just today started college.
My youngest started her 2nd year of HS a couple of weeks ago and is preparing to take her drivers test for her permit. (It'll be a wonder if I survive this...I'm NOT a good driving instructor.)
It amazes me how fast they grow....and yet, it seems I've had them forever.
My sweet friend Stacie came down to Portland for a visit not too long ago. It was so fun and something we both needed...just time away from everyday life. We've already started planning my trip up there.
One of the big challenges that has been at least 2 years in the making is my need and desire to
simplify my life. I'm a pack rat, a hoarder, treasure hunter and keeper. I have been working at, fretting over, stressing about my need to part with things in order to function as an artist, Mom, wife and woman! Through this process, I've found some things easy to part with and most, not so easy....I keep telling myself to keep at it and try not to get distracted. (ok, I've got ADD...I'm always distracted!)
Well, one of my precious treasures is now up for auction on Ebay. I bought it a couple of years ago and it's honestly been in it's case ever since. :( Something this special must be out and admired....maybe even used occasionally.
If you know anyone who wants a pink typewriter that types in cursive, please pass along the link!
