Pineapple what? Pineapple who?

Q

Wow. So this week has been an interesting sandwich. Monday started off super productive. I got some great news (I'm a finalist in the PictureBook contest, woo hoo! more on this another day), had time to get the house in order and felt like I could make art this week. Then the meaty middle of the sandwich was filled with napless days, sleepless nights, endless dishes, crying, frustration, shopping, etc. Not what I planned. Today has been a return to Monday with 2 naps from the little guy (shocking!) but I chose to crash on the couch and zone out for a whole hour.

Where have I been? Where am I going? It's a blur people, a blur of aforementioned challenges.

My one victory I'm holding onto - I finally finished a picture book manuscript. Hooray! The above sketch is one of the main characters. I need to get the dummy done, but it's a big achievement for me. I'll have to keep reminding myself of it during next week's meaty middle.

I'd say more but the little guy is awake. I guess I just wanted to pop in and say HELLO, and then GOODBYE!
