We spent the entire day yesterday going to another doctor, but it was not very productive. The doctor was terrific, a really nice fellow with a cool accent, but he too says there isn't much that can be done beyond what we have done to date.
To date: Emory Autism Center diagnosis. Medical testing and follow up with blood work, neurology and all that jazz. More diagnosis info and confirmation of the diagnosis by experts. More advice on what to do but little help to get it done.
I know I've not been posting as much over here lately (for a variety of reasons); however, I am sure that some of the regulars have picked up on the fact that I am in the process of getting a divorce from my husband of almost 17 years--my "high school sweatheart." I've not made a huge deal about this b/c I am not one, for the most part, to air my personal business on a public board. Nevertheless, I do feel a little clarification is needed with regards to this matter.
It has been a very d
What most people know about art is what meets them upon entering a gallery, paintings with big price tags. There is a reason behind that, the gallery owner must keep the gallery doors open.
Overhead, advertising and salary needs must be met, and artists must be paid a fair price for their pieces of work. This requires gallery owners to hike the price of a piece of art in order to take their 50% commission and keep their gallery open. No mystery here.
Unless you like paying double for
Why Buy Fine Art
Your home should be filled with unique and special items significant and inspirational to you. Art gives space life, and sets moods. Owning original art assures no one else will have the same piece in their home that you do.
Original fine art is an investment. It can be passed down for generations, grows in value. In a hundred years when store bought decorator prints are long discarded, original art will still be fresh and new and more valuable than the day it was p

The new scents are ready to be boxed/labelled today, and to head to your home!
I'll take pictures today and post them to P.com.
~ Green Clover and Aloe
~ Hawaiian Ginger
~ Midnight Margaritas
Yeah! Spring is here, and the new soaps are too!
Ok, I have four batches in the mold, that I should pop out of there tonight, cut, and get on the drying racks -- WOO HOO!! And they smell wonderful, if I say so myself.
~ Green Clover and Aloe: A terrific unisex scent, Green Clover & Aloe is a fresh, green fragrance that reminds me of wild summer herbs growing in a field. This fragrance is much more complex than it's name sounds. A floral fruity combination of fresh citrus and jasmine petals on a woodsy, sweet musk background.
Soapy is going to be back in Paulding tomorrow --- and I'm feeling refreshed, renewed, and excited. I needed an injection of art, nature, and R&R.... ahhhhh! It was good!
Hope everyone is enjoying their spring break as well!
The new scents have ARRIVED as of yesterday!!! WOOOO HOOO!
I'm psyched. I'm itching to start soaping them, but alas, I'll have to wait till next week. I'm so pumped up about all of them -- they are really nice oils, fantastic fragrances. I can't say which one is my favorite yet... each of them had something about them that I really liked. I think that there will be one of them that will become one of your favorite soap scents!! smile.gif Midnight Margaritas, here we come!

In Granny's Footsteps is going on a mini-vacation. I'll be gone from Saturday, March 31, 2007 until April 4th. "Granny" and hubby are slipping away to the beach for a few days. I'll come back relaxed and refreshed, and ready to mix up new delights for you!
For those of you traveling somewhere for spring break, have a safe trip, and a lot of fun!
My dear hubby sprung a surprise on me last night. Not only will our son Dragonboy be leaving this weekend for a week away to Washington DC (gulp! This is the first time he's been away from us for this amount of time, and that far away... first time flying too!!!) BUT dear hubby and I will be going to Sandestin for a few nights! He won this trip last year and we only had a small amount of time left to use it or it would have expired, so just the two of us are going.
So, Soap'Granny won
How neat is this? A P.com BLOG for In Granny's Footsteps! Way to go Pubby, this is just cool-beans!
Well, Soapy is trying to get back into Granny's Footsteps, but I must admit.... it's harder to do than you think. A little over a week ago my MIL died after a battle with cancer. It really has taken it's toll on my family. We're all trying to be gentle with ourselves and also realistic.
So, I promise, it won't be long and I'll have more and more soap in the soap pot, and on the s
