Hope everyone is doing well...

The first week of school is off to a crazy start! Trying to get school supplies, scholarship forms mailed off, mailing textbooks I sold on Amazon (w/in the 2-day time window)- highly recommend it-it's my first time, working lots of hours, working out with my new workout partner (thanks D! So excited we are at college together again!) and going to lots of classes...and on top of that...dealing with some sort of food poisoning/stomach bug thing. Not so much fun. Will probably go to the Dr. soon to get some meds/get it checked out. And nope, I haven't eaten any peanut butter.

I think I'm really going to like my classes though. I'm taking my first true art therapy class and I LOVED the first night of it. We do some art therapy exercises and learn about the history of art therapy, etc. I'll take another art therapy intro class in the fall too. I finally am taking my first 2 real art classes at this college too...painting and a drawing class. This will be my first painting class (I am pretty self-taught). My professor was really surprised. After class, he wanted to make sure I wasn't supposed to be in advanced because he had seen some of my stuff last fall. Also, looking forward to Introduction to Asian Art and a psych class-will go to that tonight for the first time.

Ciao!

Today, I am grateful for strength to get through this week, friends, family, God and a great husband!

Hm. Something happened when I tried to post my original comment. Darn computers. ANYWAY. :)

Just in case I haven't told you lately, I am just so incredibly, ridiculously proud of you!!! Glad last night's class went well and hope tonight's goes well too! Love you lots!

Probably a stomach bug since Tony and Jen have been sick also.

Did you, Gabe, Tony and Jen all go out to eat together? Tony said he had food poisoning....

Wow - school sounds incredible. I'm so happy for you!!! Did you see my latest blog post? It's an art project that's definitely therapeutic. :-) I'm not done with it yet, so far I've only written the words...have more fun things to do with the rocks.

I met your Aunt on a plane and just found the napkin we wrote your blog address on. I hope I have more time soon to read through it. I hear you are an incredible inspiration to people and I admire your strength and faith. Many blessings, Olivia.
