My 'Want To Do' List

consists of playing in my studio,
with some of my favorite toys,

Sadly my 'Have to Do' list
is quite a bit different,

there are dishes to wash,

laundry piles are calling my name,

which of course will lead to ironing!

 Since my family has this annoying
 need to be fed, there
will be menu planning and cooking.

If only I had some help
with the housework...

Hopefully by I won't feel like this
when my chores are done!

Maybe then I'll get to my
'want tos' without feeling guilty!


  1. Jumped over here from Trudy's and can very much relate to your post. Unfortunately, I also have the "what I actually do" list and none of the above is usually on it, ugh! Thanks for the fun pictures:)

  2. Lots to relate to here...hope you get some quality creating time!

  3. ^giggles^ - YES! We artistic mothers are sometimes tied... aren't we? I am about to put dinner in the crock pot so I can focus on "my fun stuff" for the afternoon, well, amidst kid stuff, etc. Great to read you!

  4. You made me laugh, Diva! That 'annoying need to be fed' - HYSTERICAL!

    "laundry piles calling your name" long have you been hearing voices??!! ;)

  5. Take one day a week where you don't do anything but tell the family to eat whatever they want to fix themselves and the housework can be done the next day! hehe I'm so helpful, aren't I:-) lol xoxo

  6. Ah, you just outlined my day. Not that I did any of it, lol. I spent most of the day outside gardening and the rest watching baseball.
    My family has learned to not expect too much from me in the cooking department but I'm always up to date on laundry.
    Take time for yourself!! Aint nobody happy if momma ain't happy:)

  7. hee hee...I hear ya. I need to do so much tomorrow and yet...the Studio will be whispering my name, I'm sure!

  9. I have the same to do list! Thanks so much for stopping by and I enjoyed your post makes me think what I should be doing instead of playing on the comp!!

  10. Hehehe, I feel your pain! These vintage images are too fun.

  11. Oh gosh...that darn to do list! Yuck! ... Wouldn't it be so great if we could just play all day like when we were kids? ;) Great post! ...Thanks for your visit, sweetie! xo Paulette

  15. I love this post! It's so true. Every time I get in a really creative mood there's always something else that needs my attention. I wish I was rich so I could hire a cook and a housekeeper and then I could just play all day. Sadly I don't think that's going to happen!!
