Awoke this am remembering that I was to start YESTERDAY with my small creative steps. Got me thinking...yesterday was Saturday and I had only half of my posse here, my older two were at my parents' for the weekend, and my husband was solving crises at work. My little guys and I were to go to a b-day party together, but they kept fighting so much so that I couldn't even get a shower. So I aborted the party mission, opting for something more productive than sitting inside and arguing. Something involving equal participation from us all....cleaning out my car. That worked miracles for both my car and everyone's dispositions. After a trip to Sonic for happy hour slushes for the hard workers and the car wash for a stronger vacuum I then settled in to shave Lucy, our labradoodle. So, even though I may not have gotten anything done in my journal or visual journal, I still feel that these little steps taken yesterday helped to open up some space for me.
Now as far as today's creative steps go...I did finally make it to Yarnorama to use up that gift certificate I won and now have 2 new knitting projects to start (when everything slows down, right!).
I have 5 amazing people in my life, 4 under the age of 11. Every day I learn something new from them all. In the midst of homework, diapers and laundry, I am working to get my creative mojo back, one step at a time.
