No Life This Summer For Moi

okay....so basically I've had NO LIFE this summer
no vacations
no getaways
no outings

all because I've been the PRIMARY caregiver to these little fur balls...


and believe me in the beginning I didn't mind one bit

but once I started visiting all of your lovely blogs
and see that all you have been enjoying the great outdoors
going on fabulous vacations with your families
or attending great artist affaires with your friends
I have begun to get very envious
in fact, you may say I've even become GREEN WITH ENVY
over all of the pictures you've been sharing...
of your adventurous summer getaways...
and I am just feeling plum left out!

But wait...
I see a light at the end of my puppy sitting!
a rainbow on the horizon...
a future of fun for this sad little woman
who has been deprived of her creative outlet for art

for come the end of september Christina and I are heading here...
Terri Brush Art Camp in Oregon

and here...
Art and Soul Portland

and then at the end of October my mom and I are partaking of this lovely event...
Tarte-A-Licious Artsy Tartesy

so now you don't need to feel sorry for me anymore
because I'm sure to have the same kinds of fun
going to all of these events that you did going to yours
and I will once again feel fulfilled enough to last me until my next art adventure!

Lucky you, I love your puppies and the art retreats! Vacations are nice but then reality hits when you are home....no ocean...no beach..so you didn't miss much!

NOW who's green with envy?
I AM!!!
You are going to have so much fun at that retreat!!!! Lots of great girls are going!!!! I'm so green, I think I'm turning purple.

And girl...I would trade summers with you to be able to spend time with Bella, Leroy, Ginger and Buddy!!!! They are too precious!
Plus, you have a cool new place to hang out outside...nope...I'm not feeling sorry for you at all!!!
tee hee!

I just found your blog, and I have to say that I can completely relate! My husband is in the middle of a political campaign right now, and needless to say, there are no vacations this summer. I'm just waiting for November and praying that all goes well, so we can run away for a few days!

Those retreats look fabulous, by the way. If I wasn't from the Midwest I might be tempted....
