I had my beginner's art class yesterday, and it went well. Before the kids showed up, I did lots of house cleaning - still getting things back in order after the weekend of plumbing work around here. After my class left, I headed in to town to run some errands for the art show.
The art show is approaching fast and will keep me hopping for the next week. One of my errands was picking up some advertising banners at the local sign shop. They were supposed to be ready at 5 PM, but they weren't. I was told they would be ready in "a few minutes, if I wanted to wait." When questioned, they said, "Well, about 30 minutes." Okay, I'll wait. Last year these guys had months to do the banners and were late getting them done - so I thought I would put a little pressure on them by waiting. At 6:30, the signs were ready. It would have made me crazy, but I was determined, or as Toby would say, "bull headed." But hey, it is one thing off my list.
After picking up the banners, I headed over to the DAG president's house to stuff envelopes with invites (Okie for invitations) to the reception. We gott'er done, and I was home by 9:30. Part of that was waiting on the printer to catch up to us stuffers. That was a biggie off my list. I also spent lots of time on the phone arranging a photo shoot and getting an article done about the show for the local paper (the Duncan Banner - what is it with banners). I went to bed feeling like I had accomplished lots. Then I had dreams where I went to fix my new watch band and cut the clasp off. And another dream where I was at a large gathering of people and came out of the restroom without my pants. All my dreams had an underlying themes of art show problems. My stress does not show on the surface, but the dreams prove otherwise.
Speaking of art shows, Jesse posted some great photos of her trip to the Louvre in Paris. She has posted even more on her FaceBook photos. It pays to be friends with Jes.
