Yikes… how does this happen??? I am really a bit over-scheduled this week… and next. The good news is, I seem to thrive in this hectic environment. The bad news is, I have a lot of unfinished projects in process right now in my house with no free time to complete any of them. I don’t like living in chaos. I like order, or at least the resemblance of order!
I started repainting the diamond pattern on my dining room floor last week. That is half done as I write. As a result, I have furniture from the dining room, scattered about in my tiny apartment. My studio is still a total mess and my office-to-be (daughter’s former bedroom), is still a junk room.
This week and next week I am helping out my friend Stacy with one of her painting jobs. Right now we are doing a lot of the grunt work, like striping wallpaper, painting ceilings and trim and base coating. The homeowners are living in a hotel w/their 4 kids, while the house undergoes renovation. There are old floors and carpet being taken up and new floors installed as well, by other crews. It’s very noisy with all the banging going on w/the floor work in various parts of the house!
This week I also have 2 after school programs that started, so I’ve had to fit those in. As a total diversion from my painting business, I teach 1 or 2 classes for Mad Science. It is a lot of fun and I will talk about this more in a later post.
Last night I went over to my friend Tasha’s studio for a life drawing session. Tonight I have the dinner meeting. I have to try to fit in 1 consultation and write up 1 proposal before the week’s end. Because I’ve had to cut 2 of my days short w/Stacy to make it to my after school programs on time, I will work half of Saturday. But… my hair is in dire need of a cut and color, so I’ll be visiting my favorite hairdresser, Anthony, first thing Saturday morning before I go off to paint!
I think Sunday I am just going to rest. 🙂 Right now I need to get to bed!
