Tuesdaily, victorious (mostly)

It was a mixed bag of a weekend. I got a piece of artwork finished for a project with laylalawlor, and did running around and went to gaming on Sunday. (I spent most of Sunday wondering why everyone around me smelled bad everywhere I went... and got home to find that there was dog poop on my shoe. Sorry, everyone I thought smelled bad... *facepalm*) I got orders filled, and updated my Etsy shop with Christmas digital designs. Hold onto your pants for some printed cards to color, coming soon.

But the real triumph? Today was our first day of pre-school.

Jake met me there and we ushered her in to the crazy, wonderful chaos of the classroom and left her busily playing with a dollhouse to not-quite sniffle together in the parking lot. I picked her up after a trip to the post office and a load of water and 950 words written at the library, and she was a little shell-shocked about the whole affair, but smiled and hugged me and said she had fun and she didn't say she didn't want to go back when I told her we were going again in a few days. (And she's is PLENTY fast about saying she doesn't want to something if there's even a hint of it...) She even said she made new friends, but she couldn't remember their names.

The idea that she would go down easily for her nap after such an exciting morning has proven a lie, alas, so not much done yet this afternoon.

Have a photo from our first day. Not exactly a smiley front porch first day photo, but this is monsterus minimus we're talking about.

Yay, shiny things! Yay, new friends at preschool!

Proofreading nit: the text in the image for the holiday dragons says five, but the text for the entry says four, and there seem to be four images. (Woot, Seasoning's Greetings included, and available on its own, too. :)

Woops! Recycled the text from the unicorn image and forgot to update it. I've fixed it up and uploaded the revision. :) Thanks for the headsup!

I was just walking to lunch, walked by a store that had a board outside, indicating that they had "Coloring books for Adults!" I popped in since the display was right by the door - had a book from the person that was featured on NPR, had a few others that were strange/cute, but nothing like yours!! So, I had this thought that you should send them a postcard: http://www.anthology.typepad.com/

:)

Best first day of school picture I've seen this year!
