...pun totally intended!
I just went through my "mending pile." Yes, I have a mending pile, like Laura Ingalls Wilder from Little House on the Prairie. Only I was watching TV while I did it and I know she did mending for both something to do and out of necessity. I re-attached a button, fixed 2 busted seams, stitched a split knee closed (on jeans, not in real life, I don't do skin!!), re-attached a tie to my tie-able pillow cases and set aside one pair of pants for the seamstress, as I cannot possibly re-attach the little hook that goes in the metal catch.
I am watching Julie and Julia. LOVE this movie it is as addictive and re-watchable as some of my other favorites, like Sleepless in Seattle and Runaway Bride. I also love Amy Adams. And I wish I could cook. Instead, I watch other people cook and eat bean dip with chips. Which my hubby brought me. Heated up the dip and all and brought it to me in bed. With the WHOLE bag of chips, not just a little bowl full like I would've fixed for myself. He also delivered it sans ridicule for not getting ice cream! Gotta love that man!
I am really starting to get used to the idea of being a full-time writer. Not contributing to our income in any way scares me, I've always contributed in some way, even just the dribble of income I've provided over the last 3 years, but still....this is it. I'm in art school and I'm writing. I'm pursuing a life as a an author/illustrator. I'm looking into writing groups (many thanks to my friend Jenn, who pointed me towards Pennwriters--it looks awesome!!) and masters programs in writing (for after I finish my associate's in art!). I'm really doing things to bring myself closer to my goal! It is do-able. Scary sometimes, exhilarating at others, but do-able!
Are you living your life's dream? If so, what is it and how did you get there?
