Slow Learner

Sometimes I could kick myself for overlooking the obvious. Then I realize that my poor little brain is often working overtime and I can’t be expected to get everything right all the time.

So it’s not totally unexpected that it’s basically taken me a week to figure out that I could use the closet in the spare room (which is supposed to/will be my office) would be the perfect place to store my suitcases. Duh.

The last two weeks have been both easy and difficult. Major life changes. New adventures. Exciting and daunting at the same time. It makes my head spin mightily. It’s kind of difficult to get my bearings. I see a world of possibilities in front of me, and yet I feel somewhat adrift at sea.

Thanksgiving this year will be spent alone. My friend is heading east to spend time with family (after I insisted I’d be fine on my own…and I will be). There are many things I can do to fill that time and I’m sure I’ll survive. I’ll just miss my kids, my family a lot.

I also have an interview/orientation session coming up for a non-profit women/children’s shelter here in town. They do good work and I would love to be able to help somehow.

I’m getting to know different photographers in town. Looking to set up sessions with them (hopefully soon!) and get in there, get my hands dirty. And all this means I need to rework my portfolio and tool it to represent the work I enjoy doing, the work I’d like to be doing, and still show my range. I need someone willing to sit down with me and spend a day going over every image and telling me which is a contender. Cuz I’ll find a distraction or 58 along the way (right, Anyone heading to Vegas and feel like going through all my photos with me? We can work in my new office! lol

Okay, I’m slowing down. It may be due to the hour (4:11am). The podcast with Syl Arena is winding down and it seems the perfect time to call it a night. morning. whatever.

Also, if you live in or near Vegas, or if you’re going to be visiting and you’d like to book a portrait session, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Blog readers get a discount and you get to be famous amongst my eleventy-ten readers. No, seriously. You’re in town? Let’s do this! I will capture your beautiful family or yourself. You’ll get a great discount and we’ll all have a blast!

For now though, snooze time.


  1. It’s SO exciting!! Ah, the adventures you’ll have!

    And the women’s shelter? You’re an inspiration, girl! :hug:

  4. It’s easy to be upbeat in word. In heart, it’s not the same thing at all. I miss my babies. Otherwise, yes, I am thiking positive thoughts!

    Thank you for the prayers and hugs!

    I hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

  5. Hope you find a good place to at least have a Thanksgiving dinner. Shouldn’t be too hard in Vegas. And hope the change in venue will mean more business opportunities for you (like it did me). :toast:
