I'm sitting here on my sofa as two little girls play with Play-doh to my right. ("Aww..num num num. Susan, look how big my popsible is!") The best part of my job is that I can play all day - and snuggle whenever I'm in need of one. The hardest part is right now - the time of day when I can barely keep my eyes open, yet don't want anymore coffee at this afternoon hour.
I have a dinner tonight with all of the moms that I work for. There's a reservation for 10 - I guess my little summer job of '03 with 4 kids has truly exploded into a full-blown preschool a la Suzanne. I can't help but wonder what they'll do come December 14th when I have my last day with them all. I've been with these same little ones since they were carried in slings, toothless and whiny. Not only that, but I've been with them for 8-9 hours a day! Now I can't wait to be in NY - and it's only 3 months away!! yipee.
Enough about the job. I've been doing a bunch of freelance artwork for different bands and acts. Right now I'm working on the logo/design work for a comedy tour supporting hurricane Katrina. It's the second time I've helped this guy out - but, I really don't like his ideas. Sounds awful, I know - but, it could be done SO much more interestingly... But, that's why I'll never go into this as a profession - I just don't like some of the ideas people have... yet they insist on them. Maybe I'll throw a copy of the final product on here when it's done. (I can't wait for it to be done).
Well, I'm off to safety pin my eyelids open so that I can earn the rest of my pay for the day.
