Thinking Monday

I was raised with a strong work ethic, too strong some might say - I have a tendency to work a lot, as do my parents and my siblings.  We are all nuts that way.  
I also learned at an early age that I should do work before play.  
Flash forward 40 years.
And here I am in this place where my work *is* my play, you know?  I would rather do my art (which is my work) than almost anything else in the world.  For that reason, it feels very much like play.  Which is why I have a conundrum.  Since my work feels like play, cleaning the house, managing the biz end (paperwork, ugh) seems like work.  And if I do all my work first (which is pretty much an impossible task), I have no time to play or do my *real* work.  You know what I mean????  
No wonder I am walking around in a perpetual state of confusion. 


  1. consider yourself very lucky !!!

  2. WOW! I have said the same thing. I have to get my work done before I can some days I never get to play...and around and around it goes! If I 'work' suffers and then I feel guilt! lol But what a blessing to have choices! I'm not really complaining...only saying I know exactly what you mean!

  3. I might have the answer: housework is really somebody ELSE'S work. You pitch in sometimes to be helpful, but it's not your work. Now, get to work!

  4. i completely share this state of confusion. thank you for stating so perfectly. now what was I doing?
