Stacked up and backed up...

Too much on my plate right now. I have ridiculous numbers of deadlines at work, which have to take first priority. Things are looking up on my husband's job-seeking front (can't say more just yet but looks like good news!) Training's going super well though I still have something going on in my right shoulder/neck. My girlfriend Ali is coming in town this Saturday so it will be good to see her (but I need to fold all that laundry and tidy up a bit!)

And as for this blog, I have had several things on the back burner for a while. Some great results from friends who are dyeing gis and getting airbrushed works of art-- wanted to post those pictures. Photos and a report from Girls in Gis, which I need to write up for Texas MMA. An interview with and article about Aihui Xu, China's first female blue belt in BJJ, for Submission Control. And of course I want to design my entries for Seymour's "Project Runway" gi competition... though I am no artist! (I know an artist or two, maybe I'll get some help or at least the loan of some crayons. I'm old skool, none of this Photoshop/Illustrator stuff.)

And then there's my new crush on Ronda Rousey, judoka.







Last, check this out-- Home Depot has a program for Olympians like Ronda, where they get paid a full time salary but only work parttime, so they can continue training... at the end is a link you should click on which gives $1 per click to the program.

Hope the job panned out for your husband. Tom has been out for 16 months but it's looking like that will change very soon as well. (Jen)
