Getting Healthy(ish) – Part 2

Colds suck and are counter productive to getting healthy. Yes I realize that’s obvious.

I’ve been fighting a head cold and am on the tail end of it. I’m at the “dear god what color is that phlegm!” stage. What that also means is that I’ve been weak and filling myself with comfort food. Top of that list is the sweat bubbly evil that is coca-cola. I love it but I really need to ditch it.

I’ve not been working out yet but I am working on being less of a couch potato. We’ve moved some of the wood working tools from the really cold garage into the basement. This will move the need for better dust collection in the basement top of my list.

I’ve had a few requests lately both by email and on this page:

  • Can you add a signup page for kids sports
  • when does registration begin
  • what day should we bring our kids for registration

My response:

Please turn around. You have the wrong address. There is likely some other very nice Scott Gallatin out there getting sketch card requests (good luck).
You should not send your child’s registration to me. I will only find some way to use it in an art project.



You have a shop?

I do in fact have a shop… now.. Okay it’s an Etsy shop but that should work out for the best. You can find it at Back40Arts over on Etsy. Please do stop and look around. It’s a bit sparse yet but more to come soon.

We will be listing items from both myself and my family. Eventually we will have sketches, photos, crafts, quilts, and likely more for you.

Here is where I am at:

  1. Holiday Geek Expo was a blast and profitable. I still have some prints for sale and I think I’m going to blow out my old sketch cards to freshen the set up.
  2. We’re checking the backups to make sure that we don’t lose anything but when I refresh the site I’m scrapping the old posts to help freshen up the place. That’s a good thing!
  3. I’m thinking of setting up a store. Anyone here had luck with Etsy or Ebay?
