I'm in the same boat with a n 11 month old daughter. i had a car accident a
few years ago which has resulted in nerve compression and pain inthe hands
and arms. I save everything I've got for work. It takes it just to do it and
do it right. Yes i have a whole studio in my basement, even a kiln,
virtually new tubes of oil paint I haven't touched.....but I am pretty
convinced that until I am done creating my family and my child (hopefully a
2nd one sometime ) will be old enough to entertain themselves, it's got to
go on the back burner for now. I can't even keep up with the housework. I try
to plan my lessons every other week in 2 week amounts or sometimes if I'm
really cookin a monthlong set. I too feel guilty about taking that ime away
from my husband and kid. But truthfully,m the weekend is the only time to get
the lesson plans written up and do a little r&d for any new ideas I have. At
least this way evbery other weekend I don't have to think about it. It will
get easier as each year you genereate new ideas and have more plans to pick
from. Having them on the computer is a godsend for getting them done.YOU'RE
NOT ALONE ! THANK YOU FOR YOUR CANDOR !
