Avioding the world - as much as possible.

Things have been pretty quiet around here lately, at least for me. It's been rainy and cool, so I've spent the last few days in the garage working on our haunt. It's felt really good to be painting and creating things again. I haven't had time to do any thing creative in ages. No drawing, no painting, nothing. I've just been too busy.

In fact, I think I've kind of used this project to escape life in general. I've done the bare minimum housework, and being out in the garage, I've managed to (mostly) escape dealing with Nick's withdrawls and anxiety. He's been sober since our "chat" Sunday morning, so he's been a train wreck. He's spent most of his time with Jennifer, looking for jobs - for both of them. Amazingly, in spite of his condition, they both managed to get jobs this afternoon. Finding a job improved his attitude 100%. Thank God ! I was about to lose my mind. Nick starts work as a painter tomorrow morning, and Jennifer goes to work at a party supply shop either Friday or Saturday.

Unfortunately, I've reached a point on the haunt project that I have to stop until I can do some shopping and get some supplies. So . . . I'll probably get caught up on my house work tomorrow, and since it's supposed to be sunny, I can get out with the dogs too. Maybe, I can get out on Thursday and shop. At least, that's my plan. We'll see how it goes.

I've also got my return court date on Thursday night in Edwardsville. That should be fun. Since I know how the operate now, I'm going to try to get there early, and maybe, I won't have to waste an entire evening there.

Friday is the end of the first School quarter, and the kids are out of school for the day, so it will probably be next weekend before I can get back to work on the Asylum.

So, Like I said, there isn't much happening around here - and I'm kind of enjoying that. I think that I'm going to go soak in the tub, and get to bed early - for a change.

Good night all.

I've been wondering how you've been going - it's so good to have a project because it does sort of make the day seem more purposeful rather than the same old cleaning and scrubbing and folding washing!!

hey good news about the double trouble duo :)

take care and hope you had a lovely nights sleep. xx
