Heat, Music, Paint, and More Heat

Standard

I love working in a school without air conditioning….Said no one ever. Well, I guess Kelly Clarkson said it best when we saw her and Maroon 5 (hey, Adam!!) at Tinley Park last Sunday, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

This week was brutal. Like cry with your students brutal. True story.  We cancelled one of our two planned M&M work nights because lets face it, at the end of a sweaty day all we wanted to do was pass out.  Thursday night we did get together and worked on three custom orders.  Everything is coming along nicely considering how school is back in session, we’re both teaching some new content areas, and stress is at an all time high.

Balance. If there’s anyone out there who has been able to perfect this, please, please I beg you to let us in on your secret!  The universe is crazy like that.  Every once in a while we think we have it all and no area of our lives are suffering (except my dieting, of course) and BAM reality sets in. We open our eyes and see just how disgusting our homes have become.  Or  how few meals we’ve actually cooked lately.  Unexpired milk? What’s that??  What I’m trying to say is, have a little patience with us.  We would love nothing more than to crank out all kinds of lovely items left and right and blow all of your minds, but it’s not going to happen. At least not this week.  😉

For those of you who don’t follow us on fb- look at our Made Lovely for You tab to see what you’ve been missing in the social networking world.

Wishing you all things lovely,
Marie
