I am glad I belong to the Artunraveled yahoo group. I though the retreat was the following week, I would have missed my classes, as it starts next week. I am so excited I cannot wait to take the classes I have chosen. It is nice to attend something here in town. I think spending 4 days making art is going to be better than sex and chocolate together. I am looking forward to learning all kinds of things, that hopefully I can use some of in my classroom.

Even though I live in Phoenix the summers get shorter and shorter for us teachers. It seems like school just let out and we are already returning back to work. I did not get done any of the things I had said I was going to this year. Part of the reason is I have three children. As much as I love them and know I will miss them to no end when they are gone, there is some times when I need a minute to myself. And lately the baby now 20 months old is not sleeping through the night, so I am tired when I wake up. He is becoming very spoiled, wanting to be rocked back to sleep. I am going to have to start just letting him cry until he can go back to sleep on his own. I don't know if I can do that.
