...an extension, please.



Ah, the college years (or the college decade)...back when it seemed like I was the queen of procrastination. The humbling experience of asking the professors for numerous extensions on various projects was part of every course. Most of the professors were sympathetic to my plight. Others probably thought I was just lazy. In truth I worked full time while attending school full time for a degree in art. If anything I was crazy with work and would often spend entire nights in the studio on campus or painting in our tiny kitchen. By the end of every semester I would wear my self thin and things would pile up---hence the request for extensions. Now, today. It was my goal to have my new studio done by July 1st. But on my days off it takes time for me to recover to the third shift schedule (almost a day and a half of grogginess). AND I have bills to pay, a husband to notice, and housework. The Laundry Mountain. It is in need of attention. I think I saw a Sock Troll making a nest. SO I will now permit myself to have an extension because I have been doing work on the studio...it is just not 100%, yet. List Accomplished: All but one wall painted, library moved and shelved, studio moved, desks organized, pictures framed, new carpet and new desk chair purchased (in the mail), material ready for curtains and seat cushions. What is left: Paint the ceiling, hang art and inspiration board, make curtains and cushions, re pot tropical plants. Sounds reasonable. Look here on July 17th for pictures of the new studio. I promise it will be done. Keep posted for other sneak peaks.

I am so proud of you. You have gotten so much accomplished!!! It is so hard to work those hours, and have so many ordinary chores to keep up with, let alone try to redecorate. I love your motivation. You will get there. If there is anything I can do, let me know.
