Be Back Soon

I have been working two part-time jobs: teaching art after school, and substitute teaching during the day. I am also taking 2 college courses, and I had to re-take my subject area exam for my state certification.  (Found out I could still get it re-instated if I got caught up on every thing before the end of June.)  I am half way there!  Passed my big exam on art history, teaching strategies, and developmental stages of children in art education.  It was a two and a half hour test!  And it was a two hour drive to get to the testing site.  Studied for a couple of weeks. Glad that is over with!

Robert laughs at me, says it is my own fault for letting things get so far behind.  He is right, but I was honestly taking care of him through all of his brain surgeries.  Oh well, it is good to have him back, and hear him laugh again.

At any rate, for the first time in many years, I have not been painting at all these days, but I will get back to it when my final exams are finished.  I have six new paintings I can't wait to finish, but I have to stay focused on getting these courses done.  Summer courses are twice the work in a short amount of time......
