Feeling drained...

So here in Canada children have been enjoying Spring Break/Half Term/March Break...but not us,we've been coughing all week which has proven to be exhausting...I am cursing "Play centres" right now, as we went last weekend to the girls cousin's Birthday at one...and now look a week of this!
This drawing(which I am pleased I finished this morning) is how I am feeling, even though you would love to just curl up in bed and sleep all day by your self when you're feeling like this(if you could) as a Mum, it's pretty much impossible. You have to keep everyone fed, and the house and laundry clean...and noses blown etc...etc...So, we have to comfort, care and love, because this is what we were given by our mothers...which is why we become confident strong women...my darling husband leaves for work every morning early, before the girls are awake and then works so hard and sometime doesn't return until after the girls are in bed...he's missing out being with the girls all day...but I'm 100% certain he has not missed the multiple of weeks they have been sick this year already!
We're having people over for Dinner tonight...which I am supposedly prepping for this afternoon...wish me luck and send me some energy...please. Thanks friends.

Hello talented ladies!

I see you're from Toronto too. Cool. I'm from the Parkdale/High Park area.

It's rare for me to get ANY Canadian visitors, let alone ones from Toronto. A nice surprise.

Do you display your work at Nathan Phillips or One of a Kind?
