Puck's Game

My Standard Poodle, Puck, plays this game with me almost every morning. It is the cutest thing! I love to watch his tail go crazy, while the rest of his body stays completely still.

Transitions are Scary

I recently told my school that I've taught at for the past 3 years that I would not be coming back in the fall. It was a difficult decision. I felt so safe there. I knew what was expected, I knew they would love my work, and I knew the parents would be very happy. Doesn't really sound that bad of a gig, right? Well, the problem is that I felt I was stagnating. There were no challenges, no room for the creative process that I crave and love. Creative arts with young kids is fun and super cute but not fulfilling for me as an artist. So, I decided to move on. It was a scary decision because I don't really have anything lined up as of yet. Thankfully, I do have my vocal studio, which I adore! And I'm hoping with a little extra time, I will be able to grow and nurture it along as I would like. I am also in a production of 'My Fair Lady' at Hale Center Theatre this Fall, which I'm stoked about. It will be my third time performing in this show in the last 5 years. I joke with Porter that they only cast me because of the jokes they can use with my last name! Of course I'm only teasing, they hire me for my mad skills, yo!

So, we should be fine for a good while. But looking at the job market doesn't encourage me. There is just not a lot out there that really excites me. So, I'm actually considering heading back to school either for cosmetology, graphic design/photography/digital imaging, vocal performance, or I may even look out of state to attend a Master's in Acting program. Porter told me if I really wanted to we could make it work. Isn't he great?! I mean, how many husband would say, 'Honey, if you want to do it well make it happen, no matter what.' So, needless to say, I'm totally in transition right now, not quite sure where I'm headed or what's going on. I hope that I can find inspiration, I just feel a little paralyzed with indecision right now. Well, thanks for listening! If any of you have great ideas of what to do with ones life let me know!

My attack plan....kind of

All on the Same Continent!

For the first time in over 2 years, my whole family is on the same continent! Woohoo! I of course swooped in and seized this golden opportunity to snap a few pictures.
My Grandma Joyce, my mom and I, basically three generations of pure Class, if I do say so myself. I hope I look as good as these two when I get older.

And, of course we have to have another photo shoot of the kilt. I mean, it really is that cool, we might even have another photo shoot, maybe even a movie, "A Kilt upon Kit" or perhaps "Gone with the Kilt," "KILT WARS" has a nice ring to it. No, no, I got it, "Lord of the Kilts!" And I bet you are hoping I'm done with my kilt movie titles.....but we all know I jut could keep going and going. "Harry Potter and the Deathy Kilt," "Top Kilt," "Breaking Kilt"the list...it's never ending! However, lucky for you, it's my bedtime. Ciao!

5 deadly terms used by women

5 deadly terms used by women:

  1. Fine - The word women use to end an argument when she knows she is right

  2. Nothing - This means SOMETHING, and you should probably be worried.

  3. Go Ahead - This is actually a dare, not permission, do NOT do it!

  4. Whatever - Bascially means, screw you.

  5. That's okay - She is thinking long and hard How and When you will pay for your mistake

I found this on facebook, and thought it was hilarious! My husband can vouch, I totally use these, and I usually mean what they say!

In other news: I quit my job today (my school year teaching job) scary, I know! More to come on this at a later date. And, do you remember that hula hoop I bought a while back? Porter was filmed testing it out in Target. Well, I'm getting some pretty mad huling skills!
