03 Jul Life..the Ups, the Downs and the Art
I trust you all had an enjoyable weekend.
Mine was a long one…in a good way…Canada Day meant Monday was a no workzies one.
Though, we have a running joke right now around these parts that everyday is Friday here in the Dovey household.
Why you might ask?
Well…the shitty news that I hinted at last week is that my husband just got laid off…literally after getting a raise only weeks ago.
He’s a telecom sales dude and basically 3 out of the 4 sales managers got packaged.
Thankfully, he got paid a lot and now has time to look for an even better job…that’s what my positive brain is telling me anyway…along with the silver lining ‘it’s summer and he gets to spend some great time with the kids’.
Unfortunately, I also have the pessimistic/angy/wallowing in self pity voice that’s focussing on all the poop part….like how I have to now delay my exterior plans…how I have to watch spending like a hawk…how I can’t have my new black windows…etc. etc.
I know it will all work out in the end but for now, it just sort of feels like a large pile of shit…especially since I also have my Lola sadness to deal with.
When it rains it pours as it were.
Thankfully, there’s a lot of other great stuff going on and I know this…
…to be true.
So…I’m attempting to take this all in stride and focus on the good…lucky for me, there’s a lot of that going around.
For one, this new painting train I’m on is making me satisfied in such a supercalafragalistic way….
I’ve started experimenting with different things and was literally jumping up and down when this little number….
…proved to be a big hit…sold within minutes…happy happy happy.
I’m going to start a whole series of these so stay tuned…lots of pink, black and gold graphic goodness coming soon.
Also, some fluorescent pretty is in the works…
…as is some softer drippy stuff…
