Remember how I was having such an awesome day yesterday? Well, I wasn’t feeling so awesome today. I’m getting overwhelmed again. And not by all my hobbies. It’s the family stuff this time. I have decided that I’m going to whine about it here and then I’m going to CHOOSE to get over and have a good day tomorrow.
Our family has a lot going on for the rest of the year. Our typical week looks like this…
Monday: Cub Scout meeting. Shane and Caleb go to this.
Tuesday: My art class. I leave as soon as Shane gets home.
Wednesday: Ana’s soccer practice. Shane has to come home early from work because he’s coaching her team.
Thursday: Charlotte’s dance class and my art class again.
Friday: Caleb’s soccer practice. After school.
Saturday: Two or three soccer games and sometimes a Cub Scout function. Like this weekend it’s sleepover camping and/or a 4-hour training for some badge.
Sunday: My long run, which will be getting longer and longer in preparation for the Wine and Dine Half in November. Also when I do my art homework which take 1-2 hours.
Besides all this, things are getting nuts at Shane’s work again. He had to work last Sunday, will work this Sunday again and has been working at night for the last two weeks.
Up until today, I was feeling fine about all of this. But I had a moment of weakness today. Maybe it’s because I haven’t been doing my early morning runs. I’ll try an early run tomorrow and see if that helps.
I also want to show you my last two homework assignments. This one is from last week. Our assignment was to draw our bed. This was really hard. I actually did another one before this with my bed made. But it was pretty boring so I did this one instead.
It was really well received and my teacher even seemed impressed and made comments about how I already seemed to understand perspective. I don’t want to sounds braggy but it felt really good to hear the compliments.
And then there was tonight. More of my non-so-awesome day continues…
The assignment was to do a line drawing of my desk. I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I wished I had drawn the window in the background but I didn’t have time.
I was still a little disappointed that it wasn’t well received in class. One girl commented that she liked it because it was “so simplistic”. It was hard for me not to be insulted since I thought I did really well with all the detailed lines in the sewing machine and the stuff in the box. But then again, I hate that I left so much empty space. Oh well, I’ll do better next time. And I WILL have a good day tomorrow.
