ahhh, relaxation.

the shows are open! yay, i can finally relax a bit. (not too much, because next week starts the saga of a bunch of artwork arriving to be photographed for a book, so I've got two more crazy weeks ahead of me)

It's a gorgeous (but freezing!) sunny day today and all is well. I had a great (hilly!! and cold!!) 11 mile run this morning, topped off by breakfast with some of my running gal pals. We all ordered healthy and it was a great start to the day. Now I'm trying to decide the best way to spend the next few hours! I sort of want a nap but I think I'm going to pass for now so I can get some stuff done. I'm sort of in a cleaning/organizing kind of mood. Plus a run to the grocery and Target is in store as well.

Happy weekend!

Sitting at an artist's talk at work and I'm starving!!! People keep leaving though so I don't feel like I can sneak out yet.

I'm so excited that we open tomorrow. We are in great shape but have a few little issues to work out.

Thinking about what to eat tonight.... So hungry.

Happy thursday! :)

Back to the Buckeye State

I'm back from Michigan, thanks for the well wishes! It was nice to visit with my mom and see my grandparents. But I was surprised at how weak my grandpa was. :( And my grandmother was as expected - she has alzheimers and can't really be left alone at all. She can still talk and converse with us, but repeats everything and can't remember who anyone is or that sort of thing. My poor mother just seems exhausted and stressed. Unfortunately, both of my grandparents are going to be moving into some of home in the near future, and my mom will have to stay with my grandmother until that transition is made. So I'm sure I'll be back up there again quite a bit in the next few weeks/months (we don't really know how long this will take). Alzheimers is such an awful disease - I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I think it's the worst for the loved ones. I'm not sure how my grandfather took care of my grandmother for a long as he did.

Anyhoo, on to happier things. Work will be busy this week, we have an opening on Friday! Two new shows, Hard Targets and Cyprien Gaillard. They're very different, so there's something for everyone! :) for more info. :)

I am pretty exhausted (my mom and I stayed up late talking and then I woke up at the crack of dawn) so I think I'm going to start winding down. Maybe read for a bit. Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

off to michigan

i'm off to michigan in the morning to visit my grandparents and my mom, who is up there taking care of my grandma. i'll be in the car from 8 am until about 1:30-2 pm, so feel free to call me. I'll be bored. :) my grandparents aren't doing too well and it sounds like mom is pretty exhausted from taking care of my grandma, so hopefully i can provide a bit of relief. i'm so lucky that work made it able for me to go this weekend (i thought I'd have to work).

have a great weekend!

oh, and for anyone who might wonder about my run, i got up at 5 am this morning and did 11 miles on the treadmill. it actually went just fine and wasn't bad at all. good to know! :)

good workout!

I went to the gym today and not only did weights but also swam! I love swimming and am SO glad that my new gym has a pool. I got a new swimsuit and goggles last week, so I put them to the test, and I'm happy to announce that both passed. I have a bit of a cold, so this was the perfect workout for today. I had to go to my running store to pick up some shoes I'd ordered and I picked up a copy of Triathlete magazine there. I'm really hoping to do a tri this year, so hopefully this will help me get started.

I actually think I'm going to lie down and read pretty soon. My head is killing me and I'm exhausted. I hung out with Mary for her birthday last night (Happy Birthday Mary!!!!) and didn't get home until somewhat late. It was fun though!


Sorry, I know I've been horrible about blogging lately. I'm just brooding on some stuff right now and haven't felt like it. Plus work has been very busy. I joined weight watchers this week to try to get an extra oomph to lose these last 10ish pounds, and I gotta tell ya, I am starving! All the time!!! It sucks.

I'll try to blog more soon, I promise. :)
