Back to blogging?

I am pretty sure that I have lost any readers that I might have had. That is not surprising since I last updated this blog in February of this year.
Part of the problem is that I do not have a direction in which I think this blog should go. I am an artist. I am a stay at home mom. I work at a Museum on the weekends. I have a husband, and a child. I live in a country that I was not born and raised in. I am short. I recently lost 20ish pounds. Does any of this make me interesting? No.
I want to talk about my life and people in it, because I have some pretty damn good stories, but I also want to talk about and share my art. That is hard to do when you spend most of your time napping so that I don’t have to deal with actually doing things.
So, in an attempt to take charge of the direction in which I want the next phase of my life to go I will attempt to blog more regularly, a promise I have made numerous times before….but I am going to stick to it this time damn it!!!

This is the first day of I have had in over a week. I work as a docent at a local museum, and I love my job. I do get frustrated with some parts of the job, since it is a not for profit we are not exactly swimming with money to make the museum as awesome as it could be. I have dreams of winning a giant lottery jackpot and kindly bestowing upon them a huge freaking amout of money. I would of course have a wing or a gallery named after me. I would also commission a giant oil painting of me in a mediaeval gown riding a unicorn. Not joking. That is really what I would do.
This is also the first time I have not had serious compatibility issues with my boss. She intimidates the hell out of me, but I really like her and she is funny! That is hard to find. I earn squat. I am clearly not in it for the money. I get to go to art openings, and meet lots of awesome people. My job is technically working with children, and I even like that part! It has always been the parents that are the hard part. Still love it though.
That being said, I really did not want to have to go in extra this week, but they need me…so what’s a girl to do? I don’t want to work weekends the rest of my life. I really, really, miss hanging out with the family on those days. It is also crazy how much fun stuff happens on the weekends that I constantly have to miss. Although, I love the extra money that this brings in. This way I do not feel so guilty supporting my art supply habit.
