Saturday August 30

I Must be Nuts! At my age (almost 54) I should be slowing down, not speeding up..LOL
I don't have enough hours in the day to get everything done that I need to. Why is that?
Whoever thinks it's easy to work at home, think some more. Women will understand that statement, alot of Men will wonder why they need to think some more :)..
I am Happy when i'm creating, I Love the little world my mind slips into while i'm "playing in clay" or sewing. However I hate it when that little world abruptly disapears because I have to
put the Laundry in the dryer, or make lunch, or make a phone call where they put me on hold for 20 minutes, or run to the Market because somebody needs something we are out of, or clean the house..You get the picture. I have decided my life would be so much easier if i had a Personal Assistant, or more commonly called " A Wife". Can ya tell I'm just a little bit irritated?..LOL

I hear you??! I think for those of us who create, it is a real challenge to morph our lives into the "other world" , or to combine our creative process with the everyday chores we must do. I work in my kitchen, so I can cook, put the laundry in, and talk on the phone - AND keep the juices going. It is difficult, but I think it is worth it!

My hubby who is usually a doll will occasionally say to the kids when something needs to get done..."ask your mother she is home all day".

Excuse me? I'm sorry, what?

So, yes, I am with you 110%

Hi Dani..

If we worked outside the Home, that would'nt happen. But because we work at home,we have learned (from need)..To Multi-task our bunz off :)

You know me Candy I am totally with you on your statement! We need a wife! Lisa

Laurie Hardin said...

If you figure out how we get a "wife" to take care of things would you let me know?!! I laughed when I read this posting...SOOOOOO true!!

HowlingMoonDesigns said...

LOL Laurie..Here's the deal..:) The Personal Assistant would cost an arm and a leg..Where "A Wife", would be cheap..LOL. And now my Question is " Why Is THAT?"..LOL

Someone needs a vacation! Candy, you know my story, it's no different for me! This is the kind of situation that transcends the sexes - if you're the one that stays at home, you're the one that's gotta do all the work!I don't know who came up with that unwritten rule, but I'd like to have a word with them!

HowlingMoonDesigns said...

I just came back from a Vacation David!..LOL..Yeah I'd like to have a word with that person myself! However it would fall on deaf ears, because we know it was a man..LOL
