Where does the time go?





That's my newest cupcaker, little Miss Bloo. I'm working on a few more, and doing a baby gift (ballerina bear) that has to be done by Friday. Its funny, now that I'm working a bit every day, and joined a gym, the hubby is complaining about the state of the house *insert raspberry tongue* ;) There's just not time for everything, and dinner is always made and the kids are clean, and I think that after being an at home mom for the most part of 13 years (since I was 21) I am entitled to a little me time. Who cares if the closets are dangerously overstuffed? Just don't open 'em! LOL

Two years ago was the best, because hubby started playing the drums, and I joined the Second City Training Center. Every Thursday, my Aunt Edie, cousin Lisa and I would go down to Piper's Alley, and do improv for 2 1/2 hours. I swear we met the neatest people, and we became like a family (not my Aunt and my cousin, we're already like family.) Our Improv group was called "Mud for your Turtle" and it was hands down the best experience I've ever had in my life. Getting to perform on the same stage that Chris Farley performed on was thrilling...anyway...

I love my art, and I've been waiting patiently for years to be able to work on it, but working at home is not the best, because when you are Mom, and you are home, it doesn't matter if you're busy. Oops. I think I just complained LOL Second City was nice because it was out of the house, and watching each other do scenes, every week we would just laugh until our sides hurt. Plus, the kids were already in bed when I got home...ah, the good old days!!

Well, I better get back to work. Peace out ya'll and Happy Monday!

Improv!!?? How cool is that?!!! Give raspberries to your husband from me too! It's hard to do all and be all to everyone all the time! I give raspberries to my husband so often, I could be called a professional! :-) I love him dearly, but sometimes he just doesn't get it. So I say, Keep on Creatin' cause it just gets better!! Love to ya!

Well, my dear he's just used to the way it was and not yet used to what is. He'll figure it out in time. Everytime we change they have to change too. Our resistance to change, makes change hard. I love that you are working out every day and and taking care of yourself. It must be a little shocking to everyone that your are being more than just Mom! See, that's what they don't get, you were never Just Mom!

I love her puffed out cheeks and concentrated look! Hey, what a cool thing to do! Second City sounds really fun. I was a drama nerd all through high school, but never did anything after. I loved it. Your husband sounds like my husband. He was too spoiled before I figured out that doing nothing for myself was sucking the life outta me! LOL!! Now I am an imperfect housewife and he will have to adjust to a little clutter! Your art is wonderful and worth every unfolded pair of underwear:)
