I love to work. I still get excited when someone hires me to create any kind of artwork. I will never complain about having work. But, well, okay, except for this ....... it's really hard to work over summer vacation when you are a single parent and your children are home all day.
My mom turned 71 and we made dinner for her. Afterwards I asked my daughters to help clean up so I could get back to work. Would you shake out the tablecloth?
Another day, I was in my studio working with a deadline coming. I went in the studio because my younger daughter decided that she was going to bake. It was about 82° outside... 800° inside) I asked my older daughter, who was sound asleep at 1pm on the couch with her headphones on, " Gwen, wIll you clean the bathroom please?"
She began to text me..."I'm not Gwen"
"I can't clean the bathroom, I'm sick"
"Mommy, there's a spider in my room. I'm scared"
I was laughing so hard.
This day I left watercolors out on the kitchen table...
I take medicine.
