Then, I got a Dear John letter from another art show, one I had been sure I would get in to. That was hard. When the Turtle asked me what I wanted to do for dinner Friday night and instead of answering Chinese or Turkish I burst into tears....I don't think he knew quite what to make of it! So, I let myself have a good blubbering cry while watching Tangled. Then, I wiped my tears, had some yummy Turkish chicken and attacked the elliptical with avenges on Saturday morning.
Oh yeah, and then I painted. Even though the selling and gallery shows are going a lot slower than I hoped, I refuse to stop. When I started painting, trying to sell my work never even crossed my mind. I did it because I enjoyed doing it. And that's what I'm going to continue to do. So, even if the Turtle and I are drowning in paintings, I am not going to quit!
My favorite fireworks show in Disney World is Wishes at the Magic Kingdom. I don't think there is anything more magical in the world than Wishes. Every time I see it my heart skips and I forget everything in the world. It is the definition of magic, it really is. Here is my take:
The fireworks were definitely not as easy as I thought they'd be. It took about 3 or 4 layers to get these right.

And today, I had the best run I've had in awhile. I kicked butt and felt great the entire time, not just at the end. So, maybe things are looking up!
