Stand up and smile

This week at work I gave the pep talk to my staff. It's the day before the student onslaught and summer as we know it is over.  My talk was about taking care of oneself, staying positive, and being prepared.  I do a pretty good job at that.

What's tough is negativity and people that make fun.  How do I overcome that?  During the day I work, work, work.  At home, I create, create, create.  

Bob's my ultimate support.  He provides the romantic escapes which keep me going. . . another layout in the making!





 I loved the effect I got when I added the "Cutout" filter in Photoshop to me photo:

So tonight I will try to get 7 hours of sleep and tomorrow stand up a little taller!
