getting ready for the weekend...

so a few shots were taken while i was face painting on sunday... this is one of my favorite things to do in the fall, and our face painting crew is awesome! becky, the coordinator, did face painting at busch gardens and uses the "professional" stuff. it is amazing, and allows us to do some of the coolest full-face masks with great coverage.

i like my look of pure concentration here...
also rocking the overalls so i could carry around my paintbrushes in the front pocket AND i didn't have to worry about my shirt riding up in the back as i was painting :)

the first part of the week flew by as a couple of school systems had teacher workdays, and i took full advantage of them--squeezing in three clients on both monday and tuesday. my past couple of days have also been crazy, with some major crisis moments. i've made it through, though, and i'm so glad tomorrow is friday.

it's been particularly rough because justin left on wednesday for west virginia. he took his grandmothers back up there after their three week visit down here, and he's also spending a good part of his visit with his grandfather and visiting his grandmother. the rest of us will be heading up there around thanksgiving to see them, but with justin's extra vacation time, he wanted to get up there for a visit beforehand to see everyone. oddly enough, this is the first time since we've moved in the house that i've stayed on my own. it's always been me chaperoning field trips or visiting my family or friends while justin stayed at home. so i'm "home alone" for the first time in a couple of years, and it's taking me a while to adjust. i will be heading to fayetteville tomorrow (so i'm not alone on halloween night) and then we'll both be home on sunday.

i think that's it for right now. later, y'all.
