This week went by in a blur. Sometimes I just want to be a hermit and live on a mountain. There would be no one to bug me, no obligations, no bills, I wouldn't have to shave or wear makeup or make myself smell nice. Or work out. My schedule would be CLEAR. Wouldn't we all just like to lie back and watch the clouds float on a warm breezy day? Like Kiki in Kiki's Delivery Service. But then reality would set in and I would have to find food, water, shelter, and fend off animals and bugs. Gosh, I think I've written about hermits more than once. I need SERENITY!
I made the kids wash the dog tonight while I made dinner. Sounds simple, right? An hour and a half later, they are still rinsing the dog. I found out they let the water run the whole time! And we are in a drought! My oldest son was crying his eyes out because he couldn't get the dog clean and couldn't get the soap off. I nearly flipped my lid. They must've used half the bottle of dog shampoo because the dog was so soapy and the tub was filled with suds. Do you remember the show Malcolm in the Middle? That's us.
Anyway, at least I got about 3-4 dummy pages done for my picture book. Six more to go. The end is near. I hope.
I made this birthday card for my friend whose birthday is coming up soon. I know the photo is off center, but I'm too tired to retake it. This friend used to be a hula dancer, so I drew one for her. Plus, I couldn't think of anything else to draw for her. :o/
What are you celebrating?
