Stomping Out Fires......

Ta-Da!!!!!! The latest in the 'Maytagarama' series to be completed!!! Biting at the bit to start the next one but I must stomp out the fires as they come......so part of today and tonight is filled with shopping/practicing/packing VolleyGirl for team camp. I've not had any time hardly to leave comments with everyone and I MUST post next time about new awards from Cynthia, A Woman Of No Importance and Soulbrush. Please do not think I am being rude! I have made a bit of time on an afternoon or two and two evenings to get this painting complete-I want these done as quickly as I can.......in between 20 loads of wash each week, cooking two meals a day, sometimes three, picking up....teaching VG to drive (she finished driving class and passed her test!), going to the grocery store....yada, yada, yada. Mr. Unplugged wants me to mess around with PhotoShop and Illustrator in order to get a 'real' job......I am not opposed but when? Okay, that was a 'baby vent' there that just sort of popped out without notice.

Shopped for some undergarments that VG and I should have purchased before today that she needs before the volleyball season kicks in.....hey ladies.....between you and I, the girls choose to wear thong underwear to avoid a panty line in the spandex shorts they wear........sooooooo, seems like that would be uncomfortable to me, VG says it isn't. She didn't start wearing them until ninth grade. Since practice and games will be six days a week starting later in August she needed some more. Also had to get sports bra.........she would die knowing I wrote about it. She doesn't even like anyone seeing us shop for them and she went away as I checked out! I told her ALL women buy undergarments sooner or later! Took her to practice and then ran to the grand Wal-Mart for a few snacks for her and Dudley food AND BigBoy three boxes of cereal...should be good for 3 or 4 days! We began some packing this morning but the bulk of it is tonight. Thankfully they are meeting at 7:30 a.m. instead of 6:00 now!

Just wanted to catch up a bit as the dryer finishes, so I'm off (well, you know that by now), I mean off I go to stomp out present fire! Hope to catch up to you all really soon! :)


  1. You are one busy busy lady. wow. boggles my mind AND you are painting. It looks great too. I hope you have time to smell the Roses soon before they are gone for winter. Thanks for the comment this morning. have missed you.. just wanted to let you know you are missed when not here. :) NO pressure or anything.. lol

  2. Awesome painting of the dryer...isn't is a pain when real life gets in the way of art making?

  3. 20 loads of washing, no!!! that is almost unbelievable and then you have to iron it all? i hope vg and bb help you with housework, and also mr au too.

  4. You're a better woman than I. The housework would be the LAST thing on my list!

    Nice dryer ;)

  5. Busy, busy, busy!!! You are always so busy! Do you feel like the White Rabbit most of the time? One of these days they will all be gone and you won't know what to do with yourself.

    Your washer looks just like the real thing. I remember those.

    Ugh, thong underwear? I think they are most uncomfortable in several different ways. But then I'm not young anymore either.

  6. Since it seems the maytag consumes so much of your life I can see why you want to paint them. Great painting. You know your subject well. I think my Aunt had one of these.

  7. Hi unplugged,
    Love the maytag painting! Great color contrast.The painting just makes me smile.....the thought of doing laundry... well???? LOL
    Happy Birthday too!!(late) :) Anni
