52 Lists for 2010 - List 47

Busy busy time of year around here. I cannot believe that tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I cannot believe that this is already list 47 -- only 5 more and that will be the end of 2010. On to 2011. What will we do next?!

I'm not sure if I'll continue with the lists, or some other sort of challenge for the new year. I'm thinking I'd love to jump on board someone else's for 2011. I loved Emily's 52Q for 2009. If anyone knows of anything for next year, I'd love to hear about it.

This week's list: Things I like to do on my day off.

The base for this is MM packaging, brown on one side, white on the other. I used black gesso on the brown side. Once it was dry, some finger painting with white, gold and pink paint dabbers. The chipboard letters and pieces, as well as the journaling piece and tape edge are all MM as well.

As I wrote on my list, Marc would say every day is a day off for me, since I don't 'go' to work. Besides DT work for my LSS, which I haven't done since the spring, I'm a SAHM who, believe it or not, needs more hours every day and rarely gets through my to do lists. Marc travels a lot, so everything that goes on here and with the kids is my responsibility. I truly thought that when Gaby started kindergarten, I'd either go back to school or seek employment, but neither happened. With Gaby still in elementary school, there are tons of opportunities to spend time at her school, and I love that I can. I've heard many women say they think they'd be bored staying at home, but that has never been the case for me. I'm here for sick days, early dismissals and can attend special events. I wouldn't change that and I'm fortunate that I don't have to.

If I had a day to myself, I would love to create art, take a class, paint, scrapbook, those kinds of things. With a friend, like Carole, Sandi or Peg perhaps. I'd also love to have breakfast/brunch/lunch with them, or any other girlfriends who might be available. Or Marc, if he was in town.

And my fantasy day to myself thing to do would be to have tea with my Mom. She's a three day drive away, so it's not an everyday possibility. Just something I'd love to do if I had the chance!

  1. I thought you meant m&m wrapper - and I was going to say, "Wow, I can't even tell!"

    I love how mixed media your stuff is - would you say you've been influenced by emily over the years? I certainly have. I love her free style.

    And I love your lists. Shall we think of something fun to do for next year?

    Alright, back to my writing now.
