When I got home, there were cupcakes (gluten free ones from Whole Foods!) and my family had finished making the soup that I had started that morning. Then I got a couple of messages from my friend whose sister runs an art gallery. My friend had shown her sister some of my work and she said that her sister thought my art work was beautiful, wants to have more of it, wants to sell it in her gallery and instead of having a show of my work in November as she had already promised (due to her sister's recommendation, without seeing my art) she wants to do it now. I'm excited.
So, you know, up, down, up, down.
While we were there, my brother-in-law checked his phone and found that my son had changed his status on Facebook to "In a relationship." Very exciting. I can't wait to meet this young lady. Unfortunately, she lives in Mississippi, so it will probably be a while. :-)
Day off today ... will probably spend cleaning my mom's house, not fun, but at least I will have 2 new things to smile about while I'm doing it.
