Been running around all evening getting some last minute framing done. Got off work later than I wanted to, had to deal with rush hour and make it to two frame shops before 7pm.
I was able to make it all happen but I was wiped out of energy big time.
Since I’ve been home, I realized two mistakes with my framing that I made, which have to corrected by tomorrow evening when I go to Detroit to hang the art.
I really wish, I could just have someone do this stuff for me. Being an artist, semi-perfectionist & having little time to fit everything in is way too much right here, right now. And you know how sensitive about my shit I am…
Hoping that all of the pieces are back in place tomorrow. I really am…
Getting ready for a show, in my experience is never fun. So much to do, so little time…. And of course, I do EVERYTHING at the last minute.
A good friend asked me if I was ready for the show. I told him no, not hardly but I know what I’m wearing…. Gonna pull out some Versace, just to be fancy. You know how I do…
BTW, my show theme is Black Women & Food…. 2 of my favorite things.
On some unrelated notes:
– Yesterday, the new hygienist at my dentist office told me that she liked my Jamaican accent. Then she told me that my hair was interesting. I’m from B’ham, AL & grew up in Detroit. I don’t have an accent until I go back home to AL… They all think I sound fancy & proper.
– An older woman told me that I reminded her of Stevie Wonder. Not sure if it’s the hair or if she things that I make random body movements like Stevie. I’m just lost on the comparison.
– I registered for my LAST CLASS at Eastern Michigan University. Graduation is just a few short months away!!!
– My kids put up a Christmas tree and it is short of looking like Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree. Since I stopped celebrating Christmas, the tree has been looking like a mess but it makes them happy & that’s the important piece.
BTW: Bet there, bitches!
