i just saw the funniest thing…. as I was signing off from myspace account (tbuttercup, if any myspacers are interested) and this add for this live chat with this dancing guy popped up. It was so funny cause he was dancing and looking into this little camera and pointing and for some reason it just seemed funny to me. How silly. ANYWAY
The term is done and I am officially on spring break. The boys as well. They started the week sick and by Wednesday i was going down for the count. We stayed home yesterday and i think we will today as well.
My last critique went well. My teacher liked the two paintings that I didn’t like and was only so so on the one I really liked. Then there were two that we both liked. She thinks I need to explore the style of the ones i didn’t like because she feels there is great potential there. I think I didn’t like the frame of mind I was in when I painted them hence my dislike for the final product. I don’t know. I don’t handle chaos well and that’s what they represent to me. The one I titled Shades of Grey is my favorite. It is the most personal painting I’ve ever done- it’s abstract but it means a lot to me. My favorite was this little sketch book that I did for a side project called ‘About A Girl”.
Thomas played his bass for a school assembly on Wednesday. It was so awesome. He’s so good- I was so proud of him. He’s taken to playing the bass like a duck to water. I admire that he can play two instruments at the same time. His orchestra teacher has offered free lessons for the summer- as long as I bring him to his house. It’s about a 20 minute drive but I really don’t care. He’s an amazing teacher and Thomas is learning so much from him.
Graham and I went on a date last weekend. Mick and Thomas went to Boy Scout winter camp so it was just the G and me.. We ended up going to Build a Bear then out for Sushi. His choice. We were celebrating the end of basketball season. We ended up taking Uncle Buddy out to dinner that night as well. After we dropped Uncle Buddy off G and I came home and went to bed. It was so nice to have him next to me all night long.
I went to the boys conferences on Wednesday. They are both doing very well academically. Thomas is getting frustrated and bored which is starting to reflect in his motivation to do the work. Graham has been a little temperamental but after tightening up the reigns and grounding him for a week, he’s back on track. i am very proud of both of them.
Spring Break started yesterday. We don’t have big plans at all. My mom is coming on Tuesday to help Uncle buddy with his new house. The kids and I may meet some friends at the beach but other than that i plan on sleeping in and watching an abundance of really bad, cheesy sci fi.
Well- that’s enough on this end.
