I LOVE what you have said here. I still like an artist also even though
I don't do visual art. I make baskets, candles, and books.

I too run a messier house to give me more time. My family has adjusted
and we just make do. I keep a clean house...but also a cluttered house.

I also love what you said about the teachers going together to rent a
room at the school. How did you go about doing that? It sounds like a
wonderful idea to a difficult situation.

Thanks for sharing..
