*makies: urge to make things
Saturday was a Thelma and Louise day. A chance to blow off all maternal responsibilities and escape to the Festival of Quilts with Monica. When the boys were little, days like this were so vital to retaining sanity - a shining beacon in the diary - the promise of an adult oriented day. I always returned from them feeling enormously energized because I had the chance to actually think and focus on something other than small children without being interrupted.
The boys may be much bigger now. But even though my duties as playmate, nose-wiper and drinks fetcher are vastly reduced, it seems I still sometimes need a block of head-space in order to focus on things other than the immediate requirements of domestic life. And good shopping opportunities don't hurt either.

Not that this is some sort of epic project requiring intense concentration to execute, you understand. But just because it is easy to forget the boost that the tiniest piece of creativity can provide. And now, I need to go and play Gogos.
