and we are on day five of sick kids at our house.
and i am going a little coo-coo in here!
i need to get some air.
some social interaction with someone who doesn't like hannah montana.
one project to keep some peace and kill boredom was making a painting i'd seen here.
i did actually kick them all out of the kitchen first.
i believe my words were "mommy needs some quiet. everyone upstairs until i call you down."
i cleaned up the counters so i wouldn't feel like i was suffocating in mess...
then stamped the circles with watered down acrylic craft paint.
this part was therapeutic.
it was quiet, calm and repetitious....you should try it. :)
i didn't call them down...they showed up before that.
and for the next 45 minutes it was (nearly) quiet painting time.
i made one for myself also but annie finished hers so quickly she took over mine.
then talby spilled her water on sean's so i dried that and helped sean finish his.
he was going to let that spill ruin his time but i was determined to show it could be fixed.
that is hard for a perfectionist.
he had been trying so hard to not make any mistakes....bummer.
but thankfully watercolors are very forgiving.
i really could just paint all day...mixing colors...swirling them around.
....and then it was back to crazyville again.
i have to get out of here!
starbucks is calling me.
