I've spent another week on the playground, and I'm having a ball!

Since becoming smitten with the promise of Spring, I can't seem to take anything seriously, aside from playing in my studio and my shop.... All I want to do is create!! Much to the chagrin of my hubby, I should add... He's actually taking it pretty well. Although, lately, our dialog has gone something like this..


Hubby says...."Baby, not that I'm judging, but... are those the same pj's I saw you in two days ago?" "Baby...I don't mean to bother you, but that pile has sat at the door for over a week, do you want me to do something with it?" Baby... are the dishes in the diswasher clean or dirty?" "We ran out of silverware and glasses at least two days ago.."

Then hubby calls out to me last night, as I was blissfully creating in my little cubby/studio... "Hey baby, it's time to eat!" I unenthusiastically, pull myself away from my table, grumbling under my breath, that I only needed a few more minutes, and just maybe he could eat without me...

Stumbling into the kitchen, I thanked him for preparing dinner, saying..."Awww... Sweetie, that was so nice of you to make dinner tonight!" and he said..."Somebody needed to cook, we'd starve if I waited for you to make a meal"..

Okay everyone, did that last comment have a ring of sarcasm, to it?? Yea... I thought so too...oh well, he's probably right... So what's his point?? lol!!

I have tunnel vision and can't look two feet, past my creations. I'll tolerate a few cobwebs and boxes piling up in a corner any old day. As long as I can view them from my studio, "It's all good"....
