About Me

My photo
I am an artist, a wife, a mother, a friend, a deviant and a special education teacher. I say artist first because I cease to be sane if i don't work on my art, seriously, I have to go into therapy... My work is an evolution of my experiences and philosophy. It spans multiple mediums and subjects, most recently focusing on the balance of expression and form. I spend a lot of time on chaos theory and macro/micro theory. The theory of balance and entropy in the universe fuels my inspiration. I love movies and philosophy, sometimes spiraling into deep conversations about both. These are my musings and thoughts, as well as insight into my artistic process and my work View more at: GoldenSpiralDesigns.deviantart.com redbubble.com/people/caitlinpadilla

real estate madness!

so, it has been a while...
school has started, and it is very interesting getting back into the swing of things! the kids are great, but still on vacation mentally. this is my first fall semester and it is good to start at the begining of the year. i am feeling a little lost though, i know it will take a while to get into a routine and figure out how to best reach each kid, but it is hard! jon and i are still looking for a house, and it is a hell of a job! we have now put in an offer on our third house and we are trying to stay calm and patient, but it is difficult to be emotionless and let it happen. you don't want to get attached, but you have to feel something if you are going to be living in this house for years. people do some crazy stuff to their houses, stuff that makes no sense...strange additions and weird rooms. we are hoping for the best, but ready for the worst!
