Tuesday’s class was a great reminder. We have inside us all that we need to know at this point to make our design the best that can be. I was in the group that ripped up our design. And following that class, we literally did get rid of our main concept and attempt to solve our problem from a different angle. I think we are keeping the best parts of what we want to accomplish, while doing a better job at really solving the problem of connecting people’s differences.
It was great to have a break from everything. I had a few days off of work as well, so I made it an extra long weekend. It was filled with baking, family, shopping, a blown tire and IDP meetings/design work. This Thanksgiving I was most thankful for my partner in life, Jason, who puts up with me, supports me in my endeavors, and celebrates life with me.
wrt the blown tire – I was driving to an IDP meeting when my tire completely shredded on Hwy 67 South. I am extremely thankful for four things.
- It didn’t blow the evening before when we were driving home from Thanksgiving dinner in the rain with the kids in tow.
- I didn’t lose control of the vehicle possibly causing personal or vehicular damage.
- For my husband came immediately to help me change the tire and follow me home to get it replaced.
- To be blessed enough that I can afford new tires without extreme hardship to my family.
