Studio time

As an artist you try really hard to keep the ideas flowing. Sometimes there are days when you can't stop creating & then there are days when all you want to do is lay in bed.

As a mother there are many more days when you don't get to do either of those things. The house, children, and animals need tending to. Someone has to cook the meals, do the dishes and the laundry. Someone has to vaccum and sweep and scrub toilets. I try to accomplish all of the necessary chores before the kids go to bed so that I can slip down into the studio before I have to rack out and rest up. But then I also have to make time to spend with my husband and my friends (and update blogs!) . And I do. Surely this is not all possible in the given hours of the day. There can be only one conclusion:

I am living outside of normal time.

With this brilliant new insight I am off to scrub the toilets.
(Don't be too envious)
