art school dropout

I decided, just a couple of weeks ago, to go back to school. MJ was wondering aloud as I told her "how many more letters I really needed" after my name, and she's probably right! This time, I'm going to school just for me and taking the few classes I need to finish my degree in Studio Art. I have some transfer credits from graduate school so I don't think I need too many classes and then again, so what? I've got no timetable, no worries, no student loans this time.

I'm taking two classes this term: Art History on Tuesday mornings and Painting on Thursday mornings. I have time to drop Loopy off at school, drive through Starbucks, wrestle a parking spot near campus and relive my youth... today was my first painting class. I have the same professor that I did before I gave it all up to get my Master's Degree in Administration (boooooring)!

Ta-da! Here is the Duke of Windsor, he's hard to capture when he is in full-romp mode. We got him home late Tuesday night. He slept the night away but cried most of the day yesterday. Today he was shivering so I put one of Wrigley's doggie shirts on him. Poor doggie, wearing hand-me-downs.

My sweet mother-in-law is coming for the weekend, to see the new house and the new pup. I may or may not post over the next couple of days - seeing as how I now have homework to do... I forgot about that part.

Welcome to the newest addition to your family! The Duke looks mighty cute!

Enjoy your art studies! I've discovered that preparing lectures takes longer than reading the class-assigned reading materials! LOL! I guess I should be careful what I wish for!

Sasha, Congrats and going back to school. I majored in Art History. You will Love it. My favourite class to date!!! So I guess we are more alike. I signed up another class too! Spanish! Your little puppy looks adorable.
