I can't control the way my life is going right now...I am at the mercy of all these chemo drugs to help me get back to my normal life...that I miss so so much...but when life gives you lemons you might as well make lemonade...or create it on your ipad..it has become my new drink of choice...strange for such a coffee junkie..but I have not had a cup of Joe since chemo started...

Once again, my chemo session has forced me to take time to rest this weekend...hopefully session #2 will be kinder to my body and spirit. I will stay positive and hope for the best...and follow my doctor's orders explicitly this time...fingers crossed.

As another snow storm threatens to keep us snowed in this weekend I am reminded that it is almost March....can Spring be that far behind?? I am sick of these dull, grey days and in search of sunshine with all it's tangerine orange, golden yellows and turquoise blue skies..bring it!!

The Pint Size Picasso students became part of their artwork today...we took photos of them, asking them to pretend that there was a modern art painting in front of them that they may not totally understand. The resulting artwork came out pretty awesome!!

Well, I have not posted in about a week...this chemo stuff hit me like a train. I landed in the hospital for a couple of days as my white blood cells dropped extremely low and I could not fight of an infection..but I am home now and doing so much better...the sun is shining and I am happy to be breathing in the cold invigorating air...life is good (once again)!!!

I had to take a break from our art classes today and focus on myself...but it went pretty well and hopefully I will be back in time for my next art session on Monday...I do hate to miss out on the creative energy of these kids..so for now I will just have to put my artwork and thoughts into my ipad art...positive energy...fighting on...

"I Saw Engine #5 in Gold" by Charles DeMuth...we worked on this many layered, painted paper project today. The students really got into it once I explained the premise behind the painting. The fire engines came roaring off the black paper with their headlight ablazing...loved these results!

Had a wonderful birthday luncheon yesterday with my team at school...lots of great gifts...but the most interesting one was my "Dammit Doll"..I think she may come in very handy in the coming months as I navigate through chemo and radiation. But DAMMIT, by summer this better all be behind me!
