I am not a control freak, but I do like to take care of my things, so I rented the U-Haul which was fabulous, a wonderful clean, well running truck. Moved the boxes, paintings, and stuff for storage on Saturday, November 14, 2009. That was the last of normal.
Miranda (my daughter) due to have her baby January 25, 2010 went for a check up Monday, November 16~ she was immediately hospitalized and transferred to Asheville by ambulance the next day with complications of preeclampsia. My beautiful granddaughter, Audrey Grace, was born November 21, 2009, small and early, but perfectly healthy. Miranda was very ill following the birth and finally is recovering.
Since that time, the days have been filled with trips to Asheville, finishing the move, working, painting, catching up on emails, and websites....and then there are the commissions to complete. I keep thinking....maybe I packed "normal" in a box and just haven't found it yet.
Things get better everyday. Audrey is rapidly gaining weight, Miranda is doing well, and things are slowly falling into place. I finally listed my first painting on the Daily Painters International Art Gallery Blog.
I am looking forward to finding my "new normal" with my growing family and my new life in Charlotte~ and more painting!
Thanks for stopping by, new paintings are coming soon~
