No, this is NOT a painting of mine...it is just an illustration to explain WHY I am miserably behind in my painting! We are KNEE DEEP in house stuff. Ever since I returned from baby I have been working the full time job of finding a house and all that goes with it. Many miles back and forth between lenders and the house we THINK we found to bid on...and today is another one. BUT, the good news is we think we found THE ONE...and it needs buckets of work...but the neighborhood is JUST what we wanted, so on we trudge through the tons of paperwork, the tests we have to take for the loan we want (I passed mine with flying colors...but don't ask me to answer the questions again, cuz I'd be in trouble...ha) and the measuring and meetings and, and, and...they want your SOUL in way of info...so, on I go...HOPEFULLY to be back at my easel post haste!! I'm hoping the rest of you out there are KNEE DEEP in CREATING!!
