Getting Caught Up

I am struggling today, and will continue tomorrow, to get my graduate course work done.  Procrastination is not my middle name; it's my first name.  If I don't finish it by 5pm tomorrow, it's a bust.  Not only that, but I also have lots of grading to do.  And I have to plan a unit and write up a 5 page lesson plan for my formal observation.  All the while, art, the urge to go to my art table is ever present...

Why I'm Here

a section of my "The Muse" art journal page

I’m not keeping this blog for others to read, at least not yet.  I just want a place to try my hand at it.  If, however,  you happen to stumble onto it, I welcome you.

I am on the cusp of leaving my current way of being behind.  I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.  I want my energy, my JOY, back.  I am on my way to becoming healthier, wealthier, and wiser.  Step one: Start eating healthier.  No more diet soda, 90% less sugar, replacing processed foods with whole and organic foods.  Sounds so easy, but this is extremely difficult for me.  That’s why I made the decision a week ago and still haven’t actually changed anything.  But, today I made out the shopping list – yaaayy!  It WILL happen.  I will MAKE it happen.
