The reason is,…

As you can see by the last two posts (spaced only a few weeks apart) that I am not that good at blogging. That is because of my wonderful Mother’s Day gift. I last posted that I was having trouble wrapping my head around Photoshop and I am happy to report that I get it now, somewhat.

But that’s a start. I have been up late playing with Photoshop and I’m playing with Illustrator too.

Will is not as excited about my gift because though he sees me, it’s from the living room as he glances into the study to check and make sure I am still breathing (aka typing). I’ve been neglecting him some and Cole too. I pride myself on how well he plays by himself but even he lets me know his limits in a very polite way. He doesn’t cry, or tantrum, he just stands behind me and starts choking and gagging. The first time he did this I freaked a little and gave him attention ASAP so now he knows how to get some much needed mommy-time. It’s just too cute.

I can’t wrap my head around my Mother’s Day gift!!!!

Right, so for Mother’s Day Will bought me the Adobe Design Suite which I have been wanting for years. I mean years!!!!

So I loaded it on my computer and,….

Now What?!!!!

Never did think that perhaps it would take me a very very long time to figure it all out. Oh my, that’s all I can say really.

So I guess here’s to countless hours on the computer trying to figure out how I can use this stuff to make photo invitations.

A Teacher Schooled

I can’t stop thinking about what Christopher said. He’s a 1st grader who was in one of my etiquette classes. He was sitting having lunch with another teacher and I when I mentioned how lucky I was about… gosh I can’t even remember.

He interrupts me and says, “In my family, we don’t say we are lucky, we say we are blessed.”

Wow.

What a wonderful way to look at life!
