You may or may not have figured out by now, I am a creative person. I love drawing, painting, writing, scrapbooking, singing, make hundreds of poofy hairbows...the list goes on and on.
Now, I didn't say I was good at all those things. I just said I like doing them.
So, when my husband made a simple (or so he thought) suggestion to put all three of our kids in one room and make one bedroom a playroom, I jumped on it.
Did someone say (gasp!) "redecorate"?! Be still my beating heart.
The right side of my brain kicked into artistic hyperdrive. I ran to the computer and started frantically doing searches for "shared space bedrooms". And of course, at the top of the list is the medivial theme.
Sigh. So romantic.
Princesses for the girls and knights and dragons for Brother. A castle theme throughout. But wait! We could turn the bunk bed into a castle!! And I could paint something beautiful on the wall! And the colors would be regal...gold, crimson, purple...
My head is spinning with ideas and I begin to feel whoozy with a good HGTV buzz going. I am cruising full throttle down the highway of dreams in a slick, red sportscar called "Creativity".
And then reality comes crashing in on my reverie and pulls the emergency brake.
What am I thinking??!!
When I am going to do all that?
I homeschool. I have a toddler. I have dishes, laundry and a million other things to keep up with. I am going back to school in three weeks, where I will be taking 12 HOURS!
And blogging. Let's not forget about that.
I need a week with a nanny, cook and a housekeeper so I can satisfy my creative muse.
