Yikes!

It feels like forever since I posted anything!

But this is where I'm at right now:

The good news is: I passed French!  With a mercy B, but I'll take it!  Only 4 years of trying and 16 VERY intense weeks of study (8-10 hours a day, 7 days a week).  I've never worked so hard at anything academically before.  It was a very humbling experience.

I never did get the hang of verb transitions.  Le sigh.

Tuesday, Fall semester classes start.  I'm teaching 3 classes, assisting in one, and writing those pesky exams that I didn't work on all summer because of French.  I've spent the last few days making syllabi and setting up assignments.  Trying to think each class through so that the students actually learn something.

And, I'm getting ready for holiday season shows!  Whoo-hoo!  Right now, I have 5 shows confirmed, with the potential for 3 more (and a super secret, please please please let me get this account opportunity).

Honestly, I'm in my bliss.  I'm doing work that I love (with really long hours and very low pay, but...still, work I love).  I'm working on exciting new products, which I'll share soon(ish).  The summer weather FINALLY got hot!  Just in time to warm us up for winter.  I'm THIS close to being able to research and write on a topic that I'm so excited about.

And, I have moments to blog again!

And, football watching season is here!  (I grade and lesson plan and bead while "watching."  Mostly so I don't over-yell at the Detroit Lions.)

Life is good!

Did I mention - I PASSED FRENCH!
