I have been married for 24 years. I have 4 kids. Yet my wife and I still have nights like we were first dating. We don’t have much money. We have a lot of love. Sometimes we head out to grab a beer. To take a moment to remember that we are still here for each other. I have never been to a Kip Moore concert. Some day I would like to go. It’s on my bucket list. We will live it up that night. May have to get the dad to babysit the kids over night. Get a hotel and pretend we are newly married couple with no kids. Just for the night. We love our little ones very much but we also have to take care of our relationship if we want it to stay together. Enjoy your night I’m going to watch a little Luke Cage with the wife.
Another long tough day. I am thinking of giving up my daily posts. I am so tired but I only have another couple of months and I have done a piece for 3 years straight. Need to make it to the end., Then I will decide what I will do.
Feeling like a pile of debris tonight. Today was one of those days were I keep my head down and do the work. I try to forget who I am for a little while. I try to forget about all my struggles. I need to make some hard decisions so. Life is going by so fast. I just feel no support today. Need to have a drink. Watch something funny and hope for a good night sleep. Maybe tomorrow I will feel more loved.
Sunday is spend time with family day. Trying to keep it together each day. Going through some rough times. Was able to buy toilet paper so things are looking up. Enjoy the ones you love they may be the only thing you have left one day.
Took care of all four kids tonight since the wife is at work. The wind is really howling outside. the painting over the fireplace mantle is rattling. It’s been a long day. Earlier I helped my dad put in a new front door at his place. Will be ready for bed tonight.
I hope to keep loving you every day like the day we got married. Let’s keep the passion flowing even when we are old and grey. I am very tired and just noticed the piece needed a little work. May have to retool the piece tomorrow. I wouldn’t mind doing this whole piece in shades of red. I don’t like the color scheme so much but I was trying to stay away from red. Gustav Klimt did incredible pieces representing love using gold. The gold watercolor I have looks more like sand than gold. If the figures were dark blue I think the color scheme would have worked better. That’s the best part about art I can create a piece and then rework it a hundred ways. Each one feeling different from the others.
I first starting putting in drawings of Ellen to see if the wife would notice. She caught on but I wanted to see if I could do it for 30 days. This is the last one. I dream of being on Ellen some day. I will keep reaching for that dream every day. I don’t think I did to bad of a job for a rush job. Keep dreaming, keep loving and drawing those hearts.
Kids had a snow day today. Threw a monkey wrench into the whole day. I was trying to finishing writing the kids book I’m working on. When I was into the third rewrite I notice a little detail I added. This changed the whole story once again. The best part is it made it awesome. It now is a much better story. I have to tweek a few words here and there but very happy now. Used up a lot of creative energy today. It felt good. Starting to feel better about my writing. The poor kids are hoping for another snow day. Its not going to happen. I did spend some some quality time with them today. Which at the end of the day makes me feel good. Need to go to bed I can hear the wife already snoring.
Sunday is family day. I am always lucky to get a drawing done. I usually don’t set an alarm clock to get up but tomorrow I am going to need it. WE have a been fighting colds. I am happy to have work coming up soon. The wife is working. Even if out is only part time. I came very close to finishing my rewrite of the kids book I have been working on. Very happy. Need to twerk a couple of pages than I can lock it. Next step plotting out the art work. Very excited to finish my first kids book. It deals with bullying. I hope it can make a difference in kids lives. Ok need to hit the hay. Keep loving. It’s the strongest weapon against hate.
In four months I will be married 23 years. It seems like only yesterday. I still want to chase her around the room but all those kids we have get in the way now. I can’t imagine a life without her. She still annoys me. I love to bug her. We have made some beautiful children. I can’t imagine this world without them. Every single day I love seeing their smiles. Today has been a long day. I am very tired. My throat hurts. I think I’m a little sick. Need to get to sleep but I am waiting for my wife to come back to the bedroom. Need a little snuggle time before bed.
Haven’t been feeling that great lately. I am grateful for a family that puts up with me. I thought about this piece for a couple of days. I think it came out pretty good. The last couple of nights I haven’t had the time to tackle this piece. With the kids home from school today I had a little more time in my day. No running around to schools. Having four kids will run you ragged. I pray everyone has more love in their life this year.
