Yes, that is what you should probably call what I am doing right now…because what I have to do, I don’t really want to do. And besides, it’s been so long since I have posted a drawing I simply could not keep you waiting anymore.
I drew this on Sunday actually, on our way back from my nephew’s 5th birthday party at Jumpin’ Jax in Lansing. It was fun…the kids loved it. It’s basically a big building filled with inflatables. We have one here called Fun 4 All Kids. We stopped at the Halloween store on the way home to check out costumes. We bought Savannah’s wig for her Princess Leia costume (that I will probably be making tomorrow night – because she has a party to go to with her friend on Saturday!). Jasmin was sleeping after missing her nap, so I stayed in the car…and only had my McDonald’s cup to draw on. This was all I could get done of my drawing in the 15 minutes they were in the store. It doesn’t look like much, does it. Anyway…at least I drew SOMETHING. I was telling Sam the other day how frustrated I am with work. Not that it’s bad…it’s just difficult and so demanding. He said I should make it a point to draw every day. It would be theraputic. The thing is, he is probably right. It does relax me, allow me to have a creative outlet…but seriously, I am so tired when I get home, sometimes it’s a challenge just to stay up to pack the lunches, do the laundry and the dishes and if I get time work on plans or checking papers for school (not a difficult task, really…it’s actually fun putting stickers on the kids’ papers and writing little comments on them – it’s just time consuming). He does have a good point and I am actually considering it…maybe I will make myself a personal goal. I don’t think I have drawn in my journal since July or August! And unfortunately I can’t put my McDonald’s cup in my journal either. OK enough of that, I HAVE to go get the trailer cleaned out. There was frost on the ground this morning, and we have to get it winterized soon. Sam is taking it over to BJs tomorrow so we can get it taken care of. Here I go, even though I really don’t want to.
