I'm convinced that even if I had a full week of no other responsiblities, no kids to take care of, no meals to cook, I STILL wouldn't have time to accomplish all the projects I've got bumping around in my brain. Here's just a few, though I'm sure I could think of dozens more...
House stuff: Cleaning out the attic. Reorganizing my art closet. Repainting and redecorating David's room. Really SCRUBBING the inside and outside of our gross old kitchen cabinets. Washing the windows.
Art stuff: finishing an artist's book I started like a year ago. Making an art piece for our bedroom wall. Doing a Project Life-style scrapbook of our summer. Screenprinting some cards of that design in my sketchbook (above). And I've been thinking about writing an art journalling e-course.
Also, of course, I wouldn't mind sleeping like 12 hours a day, going out for long sushi dinners with Mike, getting a pedicure, renting a canoe for an afternoon.
We can be real though. Not too many of these things are going to happen, at least not right now. The part of me that's itchy to Do Everything! is pretty well balanced by the part of me that takes the long view, so I don't mind too terribly. These things will get done, sometime, and if they don't, maybe they didn't need to be anyway.
Do you have these kinds of dream to-do lists in your brain, too? I'd love to hear yours.
