Ghetto Life

26 Apr

The king size bed is in the family room while the master bedroom is undergoing renovation.  The kids love it–watch tv in bed?  AMAZING.  This is why there is no tv in any bedroom at our house, because laziness is more addictive with a comfy bed.

The Smiths taught my boys to play chess some time ago.  I wish they hadn’t, since I dislike chess.  It was played in my childhood and did not build happiness.  Cole has now joined the chess club at school to further confirm his Nerd Status.  He told me that he beat everyone that versed him.  I was super confused until he kept talking–they say Cole versus Bob, so he just made it into a verb.  Luckily we have chess on the tablet that will explain to Owen why he is losing so that I don’t have to play with him endlessly.

Hello Eliana,

The residency selections are going out now and Art Farm is pleased to offer you a 2014 residency from Aug 1 to Aug 14, based on your alternative dates. There may be additional minor adjustment to the exact days, taking into account that overlapping arrivals and departures of other residency participants do not conflict with your residency dates.

Please let me know as soon as possible (within 5 days) if you wish to accept or decline the residency offer, if you need more time to decide, or to alter your residency dates. After seven days, if there is no reply to this email, this offer will be withdrawn and you will be placed on the waitlist with the residency offer extended to another applicant.


If you accept the residency offer, then additional information will be sent to help you prepare for your residency, as well as a list of those who will be in residency with you.

Feel free to ask if you have any questions remaining before deciding.

Thank you for your interest, time and effort you put into applying for a 2014 residency at Art Farm and I look forward to hearing from you,

Ed Dadey,

Director, Art Farm
