Reality Check...

This blog is all about what life is really like as an artist... at least this artist. One of the things that I love about my job is that it can combine with raising a family and working from home, but sometimes the reality of that is trickier than others.

The last week of school would be such an example, especially when Nick is wrapping up one job and trying to start another all at the same time. Tonight was Safe Grad for the kids in Petitcodiac, so he left the house early this morning about 7:30 and only just got in the door a few minutes ago.

The past two days have been a flurry of trying to wrap up lots of little tasks that need to be done, but it has kept me away from both drawing and stitching, so I am feeling a little frustrated. How simple it would be to just focus on one thing at a time.... motherhood, art, business, marriage, housework, fitness... but reality means juggling little bits of everything at once and hoping that nothing drops.

I can’t wait to get the kids on the bus tomorrow morning, walk my 6 km loop in the park and then get right to drawing!!!

I can sure sympathize, Jen! Hope you got to spend the entire day today drawing up a storm!
