Hi everyone! Sorry I've been so quiet this week, I have so much going on right now. My husband and I are... I don't know... at a door we've been at before and not sure whether to open, close, or remodel the door. It's been a very emotional week. His 40th birthday is Sunday and I feel terrible that we aren't in a better place to really celebrate it. We've been to our marriage counselor twice this week and are going next week too. To honor his privacy, I won't talk much about what is going on other than asking for prayers and positive thoughts as we work through this.
The kids are doing pretty good. Jenny just finished up marching band season so it will be nice to spend more time with her. College applications are due in early December, I can hardly believe that. Anna is all over the place with her emotions and behavior... she seems seizure-ish to me. We'll see. Dominic has started occupational therapy. I'm not crazy about his therapist; I guess because I've BTDT with Anna, I question whether her specific strategies are really beneficial for what Dominic needs. We'll see about that too.
I think I've finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up so I've been researching and studying to create a business plan to map out my future. I want to be a professional photo retoucher and digital artist. It's a highly competitive field and takes lots of practice. I'm not sure yet if I want to venture into beauty, fashion, or something more fluid, but I need to take some classes, buy some books, and develop my photgraphy skills as well as lots of other things. That's where my creative energy has been this week. I'm woefully behind on siggy requests and I need to make some layouts too, thank goodness I have patient clients! I've also promoted Digital Star Design to Facebook so if you are over there, become a fan! Don't forget that I offer holiday cards so get your orders in early.
Well thanks for reading this. I'm sorry I'm a bit of a bummer and I hope to be feeling more positive soon. Love you all...
