|working on a family portrait for John's birthday|
I realized the other day that writing a book while working a part time job is kind of like having a full time job, but without the salary. Add to that homeschooling, blogging, painting, and sleep deprivation, and I think I bit of more than I can chew this year. I keep reminding myself of all the reasons its worth it.
I have definitely gained a new respect for working mothers.
Still, we're getting through it. I know I'll be glad for all the hard work later, and when the book is done, and I'm no longer working nights, I'll have some much extra energy and free time to work on whatever I want. I'm already making a list:
- sew a pair of jeans, tailored for me
- okay, make pieces for a whole wardrobe (tops, skirts, pants)
- paint, paint, paint
- illustrate a new coloring book for grown ups (any ideas?)
- make a coloring book of heroic princesses
But anyway, you can expect a little hibernation until spring coming up. I promise to be full of energy and projects when I come back. :)
