The Joy of Painting :)

Well I know I've been promising pictures of my paintings for a while, and now I'm finally getting around to it. I really enjoyed painting, it was much easier than I expected it to be...but now I have to deal with the "self-criticism" (especially since I have the paintings hanging up in my home; what was I thinking??) So are the pictures and I hope that you like them. I really expect more to come, because I really think it could become a new hobby (if I can get over the fact of how expensive it will be).

The pumpkins were actually really really fun, and I don't criticize them at all. :) Anyway, I thought I'd do a quick update since I'm here...
My job is going pretty good, it's been really slow and that is really hard because it makes me feel like I'm not working hard. I have been thinking lately of what I want to do for the rest of my life. Of course, when the time is right, I want to be a mom and stay home with the kids. But I keep thinking, will that be 100 % fulfilling?? I'm sure it will be, but since I'm not there yet, I just don't know. I'm trying to figure out if I want to go back to school (which is so unlikely that I might as well not even think about it), or just start focusing on things that I enjoy and progressing in that (like CrAfTs!). I love doing crafty things and looking at blogs all the time of new ideas, but then I hate to spend the money to actually do it. So anyway, thats where I am right now. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :) But even if I do think of something, I feel like I won't have any time to do it until I am a stay at home mom...sigh... *Side note, I am enjoying my calling at YW secretary. I feel like I'm not quite yet part of the program, because I'm just kind of there. I did teach a few weeks ago and realized that I really like teaching. It's definitely hard when you don't get much participation (especially with your subject is MAINTAINING CHASTITY...Yikes!) But anyway, I know it will get better and really I just need to put myself out there and get involved 100%.
Andy is doing well. He is still enjoying his job, but I think secretly can't wait until another opportunity comes along where he can really use his PR skills. He is learning so much and it's so great for his career. He is still enjoying YM. He was especially happy today because his Deacons actually participated in class! Yay!
Well I think that's about it; time to go make some din-din!
