what you may have heard [or not seen] i'm still here. and semi-functioning. there has been a trifecta of illness to hit the house. 1.me, 2. little, 3. dada. i have to say that in comparison to the 12 times we were sick last winter this winter is so much better. but being sick is basically for the birds. no wait - i wouldn't wish it on birds. why is it that you really only appreciate being well when you are sick. i think when i finally do feel better [because it's already been a week] i'm going to wake up every morning and wiggle my toes and say to myself - at the very least you are not INSERT FAVORITE SYMPTOM HERE [snot filled/nauseous/sore-throated/hacking up lung]
and can i just get all mommyville and say that NOTHING breaks your heart more than a kid slumped on your chest all fevered and sad and barely audibly tearfully whimpering mama as she coughs.
oh ! and i'm completely anxious about getting all my work boxed and shipped of to italy by next week. i seriously have no concept that i'm GOING TO ITALY [where i've never been] because i'm too wrapped up in making sure that the uber fragile work that i'm making [see above - those are glass spheres] is packaged and boxed safely enough to get there. but wait - i'm going to ITALY !! [although i wonder how much i'll actually see since i'm going to be installing a bulk of the time - but who cares. i'm going - there will be old buildings, and a different language being spoken, and a show, and food to eat, and hopefully a day trip to venice and and and]
i just wanted to pop in to say hello. i miss everyone/everything.... i did manage to post on poppytalk - another piece i want for my collection
bye for now.
